"Anarchy as a social philosophy has never meant 'chaos' -- in fact,
Anarchists have typically believed in a highly organised society, just 
one that's organised democratically from below...Anarchism has always 
been regarded as the 'ultimate evil' by people with power...the idea 
that people could be free is extremely frightening to anybody with 
power." -- Noam Chomsky
