I wanted to make people aware of this very nice article on Anarchism and the importance of inclusion and ally building within the movement (and the greater Occupy movement). While I don’t presently consider myself an Anarchist, I do find myself fascinated by the writing that comes out of this group. This article does not disappoint with its smart introspection.

I encourage you not to be discouraged by your previous conceptions and read the article with an open mind. You don’t know. Maybe you’ll find yourself amazed just as I have been over the years. Anarchism is not what your parents taught you…
