What does it mean to be an anarchist? In general, critics of anarchism promote negative stereotypes of the movement. They picture angry and violent teenagers defacing public property, looting stores, and creating havoc. While certain violent movements have claimed to be anarchist, most avowed anarchists today encourage peaceful, anti-government protest. Anarchism is not a single unified system of beliefs, but rather comes in a number of strains. All anarchist groups resist hierarchical authorities (e.g. the government or ecclesiastical religious systems), but some promote absolute individualism and others believe in the complete collectivization of society.
