OSNews, Generic OSes I know that there's a number of readers who don't like it when OSnews covers political topics, I'm one of them. These political upheavals however spell danger for operating system hobbyists and so I dedicate this article to framing the political news within the context of what we are here to read about: operating systems.

My more recent knowledge about Anarchist movements was from a historical book of Assassinations so it really didn't cover much more depth than "government is evil, use bombs to create chaos".. as was the practice in the past.

Oddly, there is an Anarchist "bible" available for download. I've seen it listed in the Maemo repositories though I'm sure the content is elsewhere for anyone interested.

Typical problem. Mention "Anarchy" and everybody thinks "Nihilism".

There's a lot more to it.

Isn't Nihilism the belief in nothing versus Anarchy which simply believes in each for there own and gov meddling go away?

(my limited understanding, hence, why I'm going back to read that discussion)

Oddly enough, certain goverments do the same thing, but they would say "current ruler is evil, use bombs to create democracy", or something along those lines.

Funny how that is.

Harming an oppressive leader to free one from oppression seems a little different from state sponsored harm of another to impose oppression. This isn't a topic I really want to go into deeply though as it'll very quickly spiral into political retoric.

Governments use bombs to create chaos. Governments also use bombs, posing as anarchists, to create fictional opposition to expand their power and instill fear in the populace and label dissenters as violent.
