@icefox Oh, when you referred to ideology it reminded me of Emma Goldman's views, who you should also read. Goldman argued that anarchism isn't so much a political end-goal as it is the persistent force of the human will to be liberated from oppressive institutions. (paraphrasing) So, it's less of an ideology and more of a way of approaching political issues. The prescription is always something else, whether it be mutualism, communism, socialism, syndicalism, communalism, etc.

What most people think as 'rude' when dealing with Spanish authorities is actually just fascist remnants

I have academic paper access for two more months - ask me what you need

Amazing about how survived the peak oil crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union, and transitioned from a highly industrial society to a sustainable one: that is, from large farms and reliance on fossil-fuel-based pesticides and fertilizers, to small and urban gardens. youtube.com/watch?v=L2TzvnRo6_
