This is the second in a series of letters by one of the editors of the NS Webzine
You asked me "why aren't you an anarchist?" I'll answer your question, but first I want to explain why I find talking about labels - and this label in particular - often isn't very illuminating.
This article is the first in a series by one of the editors of NS Webzine that we will be publishing this year. As always, we welcome constructive comments from readers.
You say it's a shock to discover an analysis that puts the pieces of the puzzle together. You learned that climate change, the growing gap between rich and poor, higher tuition fees, cuts to social programs, layoffs, employers forcing workers to accept weaker benefits and lower pay, aggressive advertizing pushing us to buy useless crap for young kids -- they are all consequences of capitalism. I know what you mean -- I remember how it felt when I realized that the drive for profit affects every aspect of our lives in this society.
