What is Anarchism?

Definition and meaning of anarchism: Anarchism is a political ideology that rejects the idea of a coercive government and instead promotes collective self-governance and mutual aid. Anarchism is based on the belief that humans can create their own systems of order and justice, free from the oppressive and hierarchical structures of state governments. Anarchists reject the notion that any one group or entity should possess exclusive power or authority over the people. Instead, they strive to empower people to come together and form their own communities and systems of governance.
