The main reason the capitalist system has not been replaced by a better social order is because the majority of people have not tried to overthrow it. A relative small State force can subdue people who refuse to obey the main laws of the system. read full story / add a comment

In rejecting all representative democracy in which individuals and parties are elected to rule society or part of it, extreme decentralized modes were adopted by anarchists.

However, the understanding that we live in one world that cannot be managed by independent units is gaining momentum. For instance, People are more and more aware that we face serious ecological problems and that the solving of these can not be left to negotiations between independent entities (local communities, regions, etc.) to solve them. They are more and more aware that to achieve appropriate remedies, decision making procedure and measures of the scale of the whole world will be needed.

After reading "Damage Control: Noam Chomsky and the Israel-Palestine Conflict" by Jeffrey Blankfort [1], the suspicions I have held for many years finally got the clear focus they needed. "What is less generally known is that he admits to having been a Zionist from childhood, by one of the earlier definitions of the term - in favor of a Jewish homeland in Palestine and a bi-national, not Jewish, state - and, as he wrote 30 years ago, 'perhaps this personal history distorts my perspective'." read full story / add a comment

Lot of anticapitalists present some opinions about the post capitalist antiauthoritarian society. Usually people have one sided point of reference:
