User:Tim1357 Thank you for adding these archives. As was earlier discussed at Talk:Academy Awards#Added Archives, the parameter "deadurl=no" needs to be included when the original link is still alive. User:Stevietheman's edit summary said this, but did something more - stripping a lot of access dates as well as archiveurls that had been added before your most recent edit. I believe I have properly undone that and added the missing deadurl=no parameters. I still have to go over the edits made by InternetArchiveBot earlier this month.  —jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 04:45, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Disputed sentence from the lead[edit]

I'm moving this disputed sentence from the lead here to the talk page for discussion.

It seems that at least some editors believe that by using "it opposes" the sentence is being overly broad and would prefer to see "some forms of anarchism" instead.

Other forms of authority it opposes include patriarchal authority, economic domination through private property, and racist supremacy. [9]

  2. ^ "My use of the word hierarchy in the subtitle of this work is meant to be provocative. There is a strong theoretical need to contrast hierarchy with the more widespread use of the words class and State; careless use of these terms can produce a dangerous simplification of social reality. To use the words hierarchy, class, and State interchangeably, as many social theorists do, is insidious and obscurantist. This practice, in the name of a "classless" or "libertarian" society, could easily conceal the existence of hierarchical relationships and a hierarchical sensibility, both of which-even in the absence of economic exploitation or political coercion-would serve to perpetuate unfreedom."

  3. ^ "Authority is defined in terms of the right to exercise social control (as explored in the "sociology of power") and the correlative duty to obey (as explored in the "philosophy of practical reason"). Anarchism is distinguished, philosophically, by its scepticism towards such moral relations – by its questioning of the claims made for such normative power – and, practically, by its challenge to those "authoritative" powers which cannot justify their claims and which are therefore deemed illegitimate or without moral foundation."Anarchism and Authority: A Philosophical Introduction to Classical Anarchism by Paul McLaughlin.

  4. ^ "Anarchism, then, really stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchism stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth; an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life, according to individual desires, tastes, and inclinations." Emma Goldman. "What it Really Stands for Anarchy" in Anarchism and Other Essays.
  5. ^ Individualist anarchist Benjamin Tucker defined anarchism as opposition to authority as follows "They found that they must turn either to the right or to the left, – follow either the path of Authority or the path of Liberty. Marx went one way; Warren and Proudhon the other. Thus were born State Socialism and Anarchism ... Authority, takes many shapes, but, broadly speaking, her enemies divide themselves into three classes: first, those who abhor her both as a means and as an end of progress, opposing her openly, avowedly, sincerely, consistently, universally; second, those who profess to believe in her as a means of progress, but who accept her only so far as they think she will subserve their own selfish interests, denying her and her blessings to the rest of the world; third, those who distrust her as a means of progress, believing in her only as an end to be obtained by first trampling upon, violating, and outraging her. These three phases of opposition to Liberty are met in almost every sphere of thought and human activity. representatives of the first are seen in the Catholic Church and the Russian autocracy; of the second, in the Protestant Church and the Manchester school of politics and political economy; of the third, in the atheism of Gambetta and the socialism of Karl Marx." Benjamin Tucker. Individual Liberty.

(p. 9) ... Bakunin did not convert the League's central committee to his full program, but he did persuade them to accept a remarkably radical recommendation to the Berne Congress of September 1868, demanding economic equality and implicitly attacking authority in both Church and State."

The most obvious point of contention is the mention of "private property", since there is still some attempt to consider anarcho-capitalism as a "form of anarchism", but it very definitely does not oppose the principle of private property – though many anarchists may hold the view that any institution of private property must inevitably lead to economic domination. I also see the phrase "racist supremacy" as perhaps problematic because it might be better rendered as "racial supremacy" or "race supremacy".

I'd also like to point out that this sentence, with its long list of references, is in the lead and I don't see it as summarizing content from the body of the article (but it's a long article and I may have missed something). — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 08:26, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

This is a selective list of references and does not deal with the views of such seminal anarchists as Joseph Proudhon for example. I also think is sounds a bit weird having an abstract conception acting in this way. Surely it is the anarchist who claim to oppose these things? Leutha (talk) 08:48, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
How about just using the short-word list from the ref named iaf-ifa.org? That would be more comprehensive and would not necessarily set off the same boundary defenses. — jmcgnh(talk) (contribs) 09:04, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the suggestion, but I feel whilst that might be suitable for the International of Anarchist Federations, this page concerns an ideology which is much more widespread both geographically and temporally than that one particular organsation which in many ways is not typical.
