TOTW: Disagreements About Anarchy

Disagreements about anarchy!

Isn't that the only thing that's left of it? Sometimes it seems so, judging by the ongoing discussions in the Anews comment section. Isn't that all there ever was? Sometimes it seems so, while engaging with Shawn P. Wilbur's ongoing workshop "Constructing Anarchisms". Isn't anarchy something that has consistently defied synthesis throughout its history? Specially considering since at the end of the workshop everyone will end up with their own unique anarchism, one could expect many unique versions with stark differences and points of disagreement and divergence. Is anarchy anything else but a series of specific disagreements?
