    Foundations and Beliefs


    According to insurrectionary anarchists, structure of anarchist groups should be:

    • informal - without legal status, without big scale organization
    • voluntary - without obligation

    They rejects both reform and revolution.

    Theory/Belief 1

    Insurrectionary anarchists do not believe a set of tactics, rather, they believe in the emphasizing of insurrection as a primary tactic and a never ending revolution, broadly. In a more complex analysis of the philosophy, it is a negation and attack on the social order of other anarchists, such as countries, capitalism, and the concept of revolution.

Liking Goldman and Czolgosz is good, but don't defend totalitarian psychopaths like Mao, Hoxha, Robespierre and Lenin because you will be next after these AuthCap politicians.
