[Nettime-bold] Re: <nettime> FW: : Anarchists plot medieval warfare at G8 summit

Okay. The anarchists threw bombs, right? And Trotsky talked of 
*perpetual revolution* or something? (be gentle on me, now -> I spent 
33 years playing the people's music in the  bars here in this city of 
Ether and, thusly,  missed  on all the book learnin'...   ;-/  )

But ->  is  this _really_ *anarchy*? Or has *anarchist* just replaced 
the word *revolutionary*?  <- simply due to an  irresponsible overuse 
of this word?

Perhaps *anarchy* has gone the way of *hacker* - subsumed in a media 


ps ... or perhaps the anarchists are really democrats in sheep's clothings
