History Dictionary


Name given to the adherents of anarchism, that is, to one of the many currents based on the principle of communism. Anarchism preaches an egalitarian society, with the elimination of all forms of power, such as the state. In general, anarchists stand against any hierarchy, defending a libertarian society made up of equals. Many dictionaries associate the term with clutter, mess. In part, it is an ideological classification that reflects pejorative meanings attributed to both communism and anarchism, both in direct confrontation with the liberal state. In Brazil, anarchism gained strength in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with the arrival of European immigrants - especially Italians. Anarchists and anarcho-syndicalists were trends that marked the beginning of the labor movement. With great influence, anarchist organizations were present in several events, including the general strikes of 1917 and 1918, which paralyzed cities such as Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
