Alan Moore on Anarchism

"I believe that all other political states are in fact variations or outgrowths of a basic state of anarchy; after all, when you mention the idea of anarchy to most people they will tell you what a bad idea it is because the biggest gang would just take over. Which is pretty much how I see contemporary society. We live in a badly developed anarchist situation in which the biggest gang has taken over and have declared that it is not an anarchist situation- that it is a capitalist or a communist situation. But I tend to think that anarchy is the most natural form of politics for a human being to actually practice"-Alan Moore

Alan Moore is the writer of V for Vendetta, Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and many other graphic novels and comics. He's also written novels, poetry and screenplays.
