This leaves no room for real freedom and democracy. We need new tools for managing technologies whose main purpose is to check their freedom and for creating rules that work for everyone.

So, what are we going to do about it?

First and foremost, we need a general understanding of what anarchists believe in. That is, what makes anarchism and anarchistic ideas compelling, what do they entail?
