There's a line that got garbled in the final edit, right at the end. It should read:

While we may not feel that putting an end to exploitation and oppression is a project that should be associated with "chaos" or "disorder," it's hard to escape the sense that, if we are "speaking the language of the people," our task is probably to confront the fact that, given existing systems and the pervasive effects they have on our sense of what is natural and possible, that association is going to be hard to avoid. And we should confront that fact as directly as possible. A slogan like "anarchy is order" perhaps opens a new conversation, but it's up to us to make the apparent paradox intelligible.
