Anarchist

A person who believes no government is beneficial. Anarchists historically have been associated with violence, especially during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Anarchism exists in many different forms. Some on the far right believe in total individualism and voluntarism, while others on the far left believe that complete collectivism can replace the state.
