The black flag of anarchy waved freely Monday as the Students for a Stateless Society hosted their educational event in the crowded and bustling Oklahoma Memorial Union.
Organizers said the “Ask an Anarchist” event was aimed at dispelling common misconceptions about anarchy and encouraging a dialogue about anarchism.
Greg Boyle, a member of the registered student organization, said anarchism has been unnecessarily branded with a negative connotation.
“If you look it up in the dictionary, one of the definitions of it is chaos. And with anarchists there’s sometimes this image of a guy with a bandana over his face smashing a window,” Boyle said. “But that’s not what we’re about.”
