Anarchists for Big Government

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When I saw that someone on an anarchist-oriented website was urging people to “crash” the Tea Party movement, my first thought was that this might perform a worthy service. The anarchists would be in an excellent position, for example, to expose the statist orientation of many Tea Partiers about war and immigration. Unfortunately, the main complaint of the “anarchist” or “anarchists” in question is that the Tea Partiers are too antigovernment! In their call to arms, the anarchists warn: “If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by get- ting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc.”
