Types of Anarchism

There are different types of Anarchism that address more specific issues in society:

Anarchist Communism: is a theory of anarchism which advocates the abolition of the state, capitalism, wages and private property (while retaining respect for personal property),and in favour of common ownership of the means of production, direct democracy, and a horizontal network of voluntary associations and workers’ councils with production and consumption.

Anarcho-Capitalism: is a political philosophy which advocates the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty, private property, and open markets.

Green Anarchism: is a school of thought within anarchism which puts a particular emphasis on environmental issues.

Anarcha-Feminism: combines anarchism with feminism. It generally views patriarchy as a manifestation of involuntary coercive hierarchy that should be replaced by decentralized free association.
