At this late hour of the game, anarchy has dropped all pretenses of Revolution, of ending capitalism or any State, so people group according to affinities, those who want to do charity for the sake of charity, those who want to do vandalism for the sake of vandalism, for example. They try to justify their actions with rhetoric and call it ethics, morality or philosophy. Those who want to do charity will not say it's a fanciful whim, but espouse humanism and moralism and make their case about why they are good and virtues.

The first want to be seen as wholly good and the second as unscrupulous threats, dangerous people. These are just a few of the many types of narrative, ethic and aesthetic adornments people give, to give meaning, to their meaningless lives, otherwise known as culture or subculture in these cases.
