|The article in the National Review, ‘Black Flags Spell Trouble’, reprinted on the anarchistnews.org website here, limits discussion by starting from the point of view of ‘what anarchism is’ in narrow ‘Western civilization’ intellectualizing terms. The topic, deserves another, fuller airing that casts off the artificially constrained ‘Western’ framing used in the National Review.
The author, Charles C. W. Cooke, kicks off the article with;
“Black flags are harbingers of chaos. … The barbarism in Egypt and Libya pushed back into view the nefarious purposes to which black flags are most commonly deployed.”
