Comment of the Day: True Anarchists Target Govt -- Not Small Business


Today's comment of the day comes in response to Nicholas Phillips' scoop about anarchists targeting small businesses on Cherokee Street, tagging their walls and disabling security cameras.

The post has inspired a raging (and quite interesting) debate, with this recent comment from reader "Libertarian":

Funny, true anarchists are opposed to government control and support the individual's right to make their own living free from government intrusion. They also support private property. These attacks seem mostly against business owners and not the government. If they are "anarchists," they need to learn what an anarchist system really is. These vandals seem to follow a "anarcho-communism" system. Or as I like to call it "communism."
