anarchists: I don't see this one per se, but the govt described bradley manning as an anarchist so that's why they think that.
I'm not sure if I understood the term anarchists in the same way as he meant it but anarchy has two main extremes. On one hand it may be seen as another definition for libertarianism where state has less control over the lives of the people. The result would, from the point of view of those within the state, this would be anarchy. They inevitably prefer a more ordered society they can control from the centre. The other extreme to which I referred is what these people hope people will associate the word with, that of burning cars, of gangs roaming the streets looking for a victim, the total breakdown of society. Based on the context and the speaker, I suspect he meant a negative meaning of the word. Aren't you glad the government is there to protect us from freedom?
Thanks in advance,
