Did you ever see the Willy Rushton cartoon of the Anarchist Conference Chairman saying to the politely seated multitude, "Disorder, Gentlemen please, Disorder"?
I notice the form makes a big thing about the 'venue being fully accessible to wheelchair users and those with mobility problems.' I presume that's necessary to accommodate the 'not-so-walking' wounded who partook in the recent G20 demonstrations.
What about the irony of anti-capitalists using a service provided for them by big business capitalists e.g. Virgin Media providing the internet, in order to organise a demonstration calling for the destruction of capitalism. The hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds.
I registered for that. I won't turn up, though - TAKE THAT, CONFERENCE!MUAH-HAHAHAHAHA!...Or something.
It gets better - the form warns that for registration on the day there may be 'long queues'! Anarchists? Queuing? Hahahhahahahha
Much as the comments above made me LOL, I do feel a bit of serious comment is appropriate:1. I don't think they're anarchists in the 'disorder' sense of the work. They are more properly Anarcho-Sydicalists/Communists/Socialists. They all believe in some radical re-organisation of the world. They differ on the details of what that should be (e.g. whether money should be abolished too).2. Pedant's point: an oxymoron is a deliberate contradiction in terms, usually for poetic effect. For example, 'the sound of silence' is an oxymoron whereas 'speed limit' is not.
It's always amused me that there is an anarchist movement in the first place.
A few years back at Queen's Uni Beflast there was a Anarchist Society formed. How quaint.
