For those among us who have long struggled to understand and define Anarchy you now have your answer.
The anti-state activists in Tahrir Square are coming to exemplify the best of Anarchism- natural Syndicalism. They began as a popular resistance movement and have now come under siege by agents of established government. It's their response to this condition that is so hopeful in terms of the promise of Peoples' Rule in the last analysis. What has evolved among them? Ad hoc syndicates and incipient soviets dedicated to mutual care and survival. That is what typifies their exhilarating struggle. In essence they are now an Anarchist Commune- an orderly assemblage fighting the chaos introduced by the coercive tactics of the state. The feelings of natural freedom inherent in such activism will have changed the activists forever, placing them permanently outside the parameters of mindless patriotism and subservience to Leviathan. What we're witnessing in the Square is nothing less than the ideal of Anarchy- the bringing forth of creative order from the chaos of subjugation.
