1) Anarchism is a political ideology followed by anarchists. Although many people belive anarchism to be a type of communism, anarchists actually regard communism as state perpetrated captialism.

Anarchism regards any form of heirachical authority system as undesirable and aims to promote a co-operative system of organisation.

Anarchism regards wages, interest and rent as harmful; prefering instead that workers own their own labour.

Many political thinkers see a totaly anarchic system as unworkable, however moderate anarchists do exist in the same way that moderates of other political ideologies (such as conservatism, socialism and capitalism) exist.

Anarchism should not be confused with the pure free-market systems sometimes proposed by, so called, anarcho-capitalists.

2) Anarchism is a philisophical conjecture that the natural state of human-beings is one of social interaction and co-operation as equals.
1) I would like to vote for someone who belives in Anarchism, but they don't often stand for election.

2) In a society organised by Anarchism no-one should force anyone else to do something.
