I have a new project, and I invite people to join me. The online “an anarchist faq” is a crock of disinformation. Too many people read it and think they know something about anarchism, when actually they got a very biased anarcho-socialist take on it.
I intend to write a better FAQ on anarchism – one that counters their sectarian garbage with … ours. In 1995 a group of anarcho-socialists wanting to undermine anarcho-capitalism decided to
- create a FAQ that defined ancaps out of anarchism
- make a coalition with mutualists by framing mutualism as socialism rather than capitalism.
They succeeded at both. So I propose we use and *reverse* their strategy and
- create a FAQ that defines ancoms out of anarchism
- make a coalition with mutualists by framing mutualism as capitalism rather than socialism.
So I need volunteers to help write the new FAQ. I think that we should basically take what makes sense in the lame anarcho-socialist faq and throw out the garbage, e.g. all the shit about hierarchy and exploitation theory.
Did I tell you that I just bought the domain name “anarchistfaq.com”? (I just bought it, so it will take a week or so to activate.) Let’s make a high quality FAQ, and then get it to #1 in search engines on “anarchist faq.” I think that is quite doable!
Here’s my starter page. http://www.ozarkia.net/anarchistfaq/index.html
Which section would you like to volunteer to write (or rewrite/edit using the lame ansoc faq.)

I’ve reorganized the outline/sections. I will do part I and II and IV. I is complete, II is in progress. I am looking for volunteers to do the other parts.
- What is Anarchism? (Bill)
- Why are anarchists against the State? (Bill)
- How does anarchism help solve our major problems?
- Are “anarcho”-communists really anarchists? (Bill)
- What would a stateless society look like?
- What do anarchists do?
- Do you have symbols & art?

The first draft is done. I’m basically waiting for http://www.anarchistfaq.com to start working, and then I will publicize it, with your help. Some of the sections need work, and are mainly “slugs,” placefillers. Here’s section V.
Section VI still needs writeups on:
VI.C.1 – Crypto-currencies
VI.C.2 – Blockchain Trust – deeds and proofs and reputations
VI.C.3 – Local ownership, coops, and mutuals
VI.C.4 – Neighborhood arbitration and watches
Volunteer writers are still needed for these topics.
