A discussion of whether anarchism is an ideology or a methodology. The social vs. lifestylism debate.
Abstract: A discussion of whether anarchism is an ideology - a set of rules and conventions to which you must abide, or whether anarchism is a methodology - a way of acting, or a historical tendency against illegitimate authority. This debate underlies the social versus lifestylism dilemma, and this article will attempt to elaborate on it.
