Anarchy & Anarcho-Pacifism
Anarchy & Anarcho-Pacifism is another page in it's infancy. Much of this information is shared with the Peace Resources and Activist Resources pages but this page will be more focused on the concepts and forms of anarchy. Like most of this site the intertwining of this worlds' issues make it hard to separate things at time but I will do my best. Three quarters of my life has been spent as an "anarchist". Beginning in junior high school protesting the length of boys hair, girls dress restrictions and the firing of a much loved liberal teacher then greatly expanding in high school protesting the War in Vietnam.
Please excuse the disorder. In Time hopefully this page will make more sense
