possible Anarchism in the Middle Age in Spain: Castile and Aragon[edit]

Hello, people. Important pages of the history of Spain are very little known, even in Spain herself. And some of them include that since very ancient times we have traditional institutions that well could be calified of "Anarchist". These institutions were created after the Moors invasions of 711, between the centuries 8 and 9, but some experts say that before the Roman conquest of Spain there could have been some similar institutions among the Celt and Iberian tribes in Spain. These institutions may be called "Anarchist" because in them people had community of properties, decisions were taken in popular meetings, and the laws or Constitutions (Fueros in Spanish) were very popular. In these lands the kings had very few rights, only 3 or 4 rights. These institutions lasted many centuries and were originated in the kingdom of Castile. Soon, they were carried to Bascony (or Basque Country), and the kingdoms of Navarre and Aragon. For more information, you can go to the Wikipedia in Spanish and read articles like "Comunidad de Villa y Tierra", "Behetria" and "Anselmo Carretero". For the version in Aragon, you can read "Comunidad de Aldeas". thankyou !!--83.61.78.86 (talk) 16:27, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

You would need a source that links these societies to anarchism. It is unlikely any would actually call them anarchist, because they existed before the ideology was developed. TFD (talk) 20:46, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
if you would not call them "Anarchist", then, what would you say they were ? - Socialist ? democratic ? communist ? communers ? or what ? - some scholars have called them democratic, others scholars Socialist... i think the word Anarchist may be appropiate, although it is of course not a dogma. - thanks --81.44.231.242 (talk) 15:58, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
IP, I think TFD's point is not what we would call them, but that reliable sources specifically connect these communities with anarchism. If you have these sources, please add the information. -- MisterDub (talk | contribs) 16:29, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Incomplete/POV[edit]

the article is rated as "good" (but I don't know who reviewed). Its more than a little POV to gloss over the various aspects of anarchism such as the more right-leaning anarcho capitalism. I don't even see it as a section, yet the more FRINGE "free love" geta mentioned. Im not tagging or questing review yet, but we need to sort this out(Lihaas (talk) 14:39, 26 April 2014 (UTC)).

On all of that check archives on the discussion on the issue of anarchocapitalism. Anarchocapitalism is mentioned nevertheless in "postclassical" schools of thought alongside other recent lines of thought such as insurrectionary anarchism or green anarchism which get also the treatment of recent developments according to Wikipedia:Due weight. But also the idea of a "right wing anarchism" is highly problematic since anarchism is centrally an idea of anti-authoritarianism and the right wing in politics is associated with authoritarianism or beliefs in defense of authority.--Eduen (talk) 23:03, 26 April 2014 (UTC).
Well that's a POV issue because it dilutes one for the other. Right wing need this differentiations because it is NOT only as you say authoritarian...that's a Eurocentric view. fi the otherstrands get its own section this means that the other should to in order to balanace it out it is clearly significant and notableLihaas (talk) 01:03, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
From what you wrote here i only understood "eurocentrism". Hardly something that only happens in Europe. Since Europe colonized most of the world at some point in the XIX century, it also exported much of its form of viewing politics everywhere. And in the case of latin america, there is a tendency to count them as more or less part of the Western World since they share a catholic and iberian culture.--Eduen (talk) 01:13, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Occupy Movement??[edit]

Why in the world is the Occupy Movement listed under the "History" dropdown menu of the Anarchism pages? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.219.170.95 (talk) 19:56, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Is there a better place for it? -- MisterDub (talk | contribs) 20:37, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

"Anarchy"[edit]

FYI, the scope and purpose of the anarchy article is under discussion, see talk:anarchy where it is proposed to be merged to stateless society -- 65.94.171.126 (talk) 06:23, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

removal of satirical link from the 'external links' section[edit]

In my view, the satirical article is a good addition to the 'external links' section. It provides an interesting, fresh perspective and a relevant, important view. I believe this WP article is well-written, interesting, informative and useful, but it is also somewhat dry, humorless and could benefit from an external link to a small dose of humor. I don't see anything wrong with adding the satire to the article.

This is not an entertainment site, it's an encyclopaedia. Humor isn't really appropriate. — MisterDub (talk | contribs) 14:06, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
