A non-hierarchical society in which private property and the division of classes is abolished and the world is comprised of autonomous collectives containing no authority.
Anarchism differs from other ideologies on the left such as socialism, specifically in terms of how the social transformation from capitalism - which in Marxism theory is the last stage of class society - to a communistic society will actually occur.
Proponents of the anarchist doctrine look to the immediate abolition of the state as essential towards the transformation from class society to anarchist society, in which only then can true human liberation and democracy flourish. This often comes in the form of abstention from mainstream political engagement altogether. This usually leads to the rejection of electoralism or parliamentarianism as a means of achieving change. Most anarchists seek to create an immediate version of what human society is supposed to look like in the future. This often comes in the form of non-hierarchical organizations, communes, affinity groups, and so on. Socialists on the other hand see the existence of a revolutionary workers party as indispensible towards building a new society. Socialists also favor parliamentarianism as a tool towards heightening the consciousness of the worker.
There are different versions to the anarchist doctrine such as anarcho-syndicalism, anarcho-libertarianism, anarcho-communism, etc.
Anarchism as an ideology is said to have gone back to as far as the early 18th century with thinkers such as William Godwin. Other following theorists such as Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Mikhail Bakunin, Emma Goldman and most recently Murray Bookchin have all added a substantial amount of knowledge to the anarchist tradition.
There are hardly any mass anarchist organizations in the US currently, although there has been a recent revival in anarchist ideas, predominantly among student activists. Groups such as Students For A Democratic Society, and the recent creation of the NYMAA (New York Metro Anarchist Alliance) are all signs of a new wave of anarchist activity to come.
Anarchism in times of dormancy, can become confined to its lifestyle variations. Vegans, vegetarians, consumer boycotters, and individuals comprising the animal liberation and anti-globalization movements tend to look to anarchist ideas as a way to shape society.
Throughout history, the anarchist doctrine has always been a idea espoused by people who were generally outside of the realms of mass industrial production such as doctors, lawyers, craftsmen, artisans, etc. These days, anarchism has seen its revival in the punk rock movement, which contains mostly white middle class surburban teens and young adults. It has never really deterred from that particular socio-economic level, at least not in the advanced capitalist countries.
Anarchism reflects the politics of impatience.

The philosophy that because no one had the consent of the circumstances of their birth (where, when, why, how), therefore the state which they were born in must disband and render itself a lawless state, despite the fact a lawless state of anarchism amongst a large human population is impossible. It mainly appeals to pseudo-rebellious teenagers and 20-somethings who have no inkling of the gravity of the implications of the social paradigm they’re unthinkingly embracing, mindlessly reading books about the philosophy either feigning comprehension to look like a unique intellectualist or genuinely believe all of the accounts for it mindlessly to be unique and smart amongst their friends, parents and acquaintances. It ignores every law of biology and the behavior of living things (including human beings) and how it is relevant to the topic of how humans should—or shouldn't—govern ourselves. We are most closely related to chimps, bonobos, orangutans and baboons, almost all of which adhere to a social hierarchical structure, each fundamentally the same in it's foundation but different in it's executions. Social evolution of homo-sapiens is also not taken into account, ours seemingly being the most advanced and fastest amongst the rest of the world's species. Hierarchies are inherent to social animals—and a social animal with a society as complex as our own is going to create leaders and followers.
"I am a believer of anarchism. I do not believe in nationalism or patriotism. The accident of the location of your birth should not be construed to require loyalty to the state. And no, I don’t care what our government does to 'better' itself. I would see it abolished. It is so inherently evil that I refuse to hold a symbol of it in a place of honor, or at all."

Where we are headed when we realize just how useless the state and capitalism are.
People object that murderers and thiefs will ruin anarchism, but I think those people get off on hurting others and would gladly support the state if it gave them a chance to hurt others, except that they'll die when they try to declare war on the anarchists and lose due to their stupidity.

Anarchism stands for liberation of the human mind and the dominion
of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of
property; liberation from shackles and restraint of government. It
stands for social order based on the free grouping of individuals.
anarchism can be seen in most communistic societies, tight nit communities...

Anachism is a being free and rejecting all forms of control. To live in a world of anarchist is not a world of war nor peace. It is a world of humans where no one is perfect. Anarchism rejects all forms of religon and the control which limits our ability to be unique and to truely be ourselves.
anarchism is not about fighting the government. its about fighting for yourself, but not against each other

Something that would be taken a little more seriously if the majority of it's adherents weren't angry 15-year-olds with faux-hawks and Rise Against t-shirts.

An idealistic form of government that most mistake as communism. It's mainly about free will and no authority. Basically the law of the streets. People who dislike the idea and associate it only with punks are usually the ones who've never been discriminated against in any way so don't see any reason to want to get rid of the people that kiss their asses and look down on everybody else.
Exon executives: Anarchism is for loonies and murderers
