ANARCHISM AND UTOPIA
I often hear the criticism about my political beliefs, that "Anarchism is a utopia." OK. I can accept that a classless society, based on all its different cultures and identities, (temporarily) represented by elected representatives for a limited time and subject to the approval of their voters can make one smile, particularly in view of the New Ultra-Liberal Imperialist Order to which we are subjected these days. I would just argue that anarchism does not seem more utopian to me than a world living in peace thanks to non-regulated markets, than a harmonious society where the rich get richer and the poor are happy to get poorer, and where a handful of privileged politicians, bankers and businessmen decide of the fate of entire countries, which were ruined by them ... As far as utopias are concerned, I'm sorry to say, but I much prefer mine.
