No, they are wrong for being unable to put their ideas into action. I 
would be quite happy to live in an anarchist America but they have not 
had any influence since my grandma Sarah was cooking chicken soup on the 
Lower East Side for Emma Goldman. In fact it is more likely that space 
aliens will come down in flying saucers and impose socialism on the 
human race then for anarchists to ever take power.
