ORIGIN OF Anarquista
Anarchism is a philosophical and political doctrine that was born in the nineteenth century and advocates the abolition of the state, as well as any organization and any form of claim to exercise any form of domination and control over society.
The pioneer of this idelogy was the Englishman William Godwin and it was later widely defended by authors such as Mikhail Bakunin, Max Stirner, Joseph Proudhon, Leo Tolstoy and Piotr Kropotkin.
The general idea of an anarchist is to consider the State as something unnecessary and also directly a monstrous and harmful entity insofar as it goes against the freedom of the individual as well as collective freedom.
This movement has its emergence in the framework of the 19th century socialism and communist doctrine, both representatives of the movements of the political left.
Although all these disciplines are manifested from a critical perspective towards the capitalist model, anarchism possesses autonomous characteristics that make it considerably and widely different from traditional communism.
This idea is one of the inspirational sources of anarchism.
The thesis was expounded for the first time in the 18th century by the Frenchman Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who held the idea that man is good by nature, but that society, i.e. the State or social institutions, corrupts him.
