Anarchist Threats

Yahoo News reports:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Anarchist groups have threatened to shut down Republican Donald Trump's swearing-in as U.S. president, but police in Washington said on Friday they believe the thousands of security officers assigned to the event will be able to head off any disruption.
Those Trustafarian anarchists again.  True anarchy would mean shopkeepers would hire guards with machine guns; surviving anarchists would be sold into slavery, with shopkeepers splitting the proceeds with the security firms.

Would these "anarchists" be protesting Hillary? I'm guessing not. Which suggests these people don't know what anarchy means, and they're just a bunch of angry leftists hell bent on violence.

Doesn't a slave system require a government to capture slaves? Some things need large-scale thuggishness.

Maintenance of a slave system is often government funded, but there are prosecutions even today for slavery; people locked in factories against their will. All it takes to make a slave is the willingness to threaten death for non-compliance.

Joseph: No. African slavery was almost entirely non-governmental.
