Anarchist Bomber Photos

I have written recently about Anarchist symbols and the various groups within Anarchy. I've received feedback that I should draw clearer distinctions. In general, a big letter A is considered an Anarchist symbol.

Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state (as compulsory government) to be unnecessary, harmful, and/or undesirable; Anarchists promote the elimination of the state. According to The Oxford Companion to Philosophy, "there is no single defining position that all anarchists hold, and those considered anarchists at best share a certain family resemblance."

From a nominalist (naming) perspective, 'monarchy' means a king in authority, 'matriarchy' and 'patriarchy' mean mothers/fathers in authority, 'oligarchy' is rule by a small elite group. Plutarchy is rule by the wealthy. Panarchy is an all-encompassing rule, such as world government. Diarchy is rule by two, such as Andorra's two co-princes. Anarchy is nobody in charge.

Anarchism and Libertarianism are used around the world as equivalent terms. In the United States, some people started considering Libertarianism as a distinct philisophy in the 1950s.

These are Anarchist Bombers


This is a contemporary Anarchist poster supporting a New York City bomber:

These are NOT Anarchist Bombers

If you see aircraft with these markings in the local area, it probably means there's an Oldies Hangar Dance at the local airport. The large letter A's are unit markings.

they are wicked bombers, though. Maybe if I'm rich one day there will be an anarchist bomber like that
