Moving targets
Rethinking anarchist strategies
in Changing anarchism

This chapter suggests that some of the impediments to the acceptability of anarchist ideas lie in often dogmatic, exclusive and fundamentalist approaches to effecting change. Despite its role as 'the conscience of politics', anarchism is still in need of a constant revision. The chapter also suggests a number of ways that might be useful in the political climate. The relatively marginal position that anarchism occupies in terms of both the popular and critical imagination suggests that the subject of anarchist strategy is one worthy of reassessment. In keeping with the need to conceptualise and challenge power in as many contexts as possible, it should not be forgotten that intervening in 'democratic' arenas is just one possible area of anarchist activity. One of the areas of anarchist activity which is often overlooked in the face of more glamorous events such as anti-capitalist and anti-globalisation protests on a global stage is education.
