I know re-posting a wikipedia article is not original or creative, and that I am perhaps way behind the curve in learning the anarchist vocabulary for different organizational forms, but hey. I’m trying.
I like what I see here — anarchists who dive in and get their hands dirty in setting up the basic rules required to sustain an organization, rather than walking on eggshells over possibly “oppressing” someone by setting up a private organization with a specific set of opinions. (My previous thoughts as a former-anarchist bolshevik re-entertaining anarchism.)
Oddly enough I’m moving further away from this specifist, platformist sort of model, and toward an umbrella model between different groups or viewpoints. But I think this drift toward vagueness needs to happen more among socialists than among anarchists. Socialists are too narrow, too insistent on their own viewpoint, and could benefit from mixing it up a bit. On the flipside, in my experience anarchists will let pretty much everyone in and could probably compensate for it by having a clear mission statement, political perspective, system of routines, etc.
