Anarchism and Russian vs. American collapse

Is Anarchism an Idea Whose Time Has Come? | Alternet

Anarchist thinking appears to be gaining relevance and acceptance among a larger audience.
It seems that everywhere, these days, people are talking about anarchism. Now  Dmitry Orlov  joins the discussion with a 3-part series, “In Praise of Anarchy.” Utilizing primarily the work of the 19th century Russian anarchist, Peter Kropotkin, Orlov argues that anarchy, rather than hierarchy, is the dominant pattern in nature, that hierarchical organizations ultimately end in collapse, and that the impending collapse of the capitalist industrial system presents an opportunity for the emergence of anarchism.
