Response to nadinbrzezinski (Reply #35)

40. I agree they go from far left to far right when one understands what the term means and it's history

Bur few in this country actually do, nor do they read the likes of thinkers such as Noam Chomsky. So few have a true understanding of the spectrum of either anarchist or libertarian thought.

Unfortunately in the US, the right wing version via loudness and outspoken nonsense have co opted the term to mean something very much in line with Rand's Objectivism.

In US history, we have seen a range, most notably leftish in the (from memory so excuse me if I'm wrong) during the 20's and 30's. with a slight resurgence in the 60's

Please correct me if my history is off on this, I lost many of my old texts to a flood several years back and I like being corrected when my memory or notions fail me.
