Add:

David Friedman

Chomsky? More of a fuzzy-minded redistributionist, from what I've read of his. IMO not anarchist at all, just Socialist that doesn't like the logical consequences of his own views.

yeah, chomsky barely made the cut, making it only because he claims to be an anarchist, but I may cut him from the final list because he is way too much of a government apologist for me to label him as an anarchist.

Lennon, on the other hand, stays on my list. I think he was a communist, not a socialist, and he was an anarchist, "Imagine there's no country..."

how can one be a communist and an anarchist at the same time? i've never had much respect for the guy.

How are you defining "anarchist"? Lots of people claim that label, when they're actually advocates of violent collectivist force.

Edward Abbey
Murray Rothbard
Moses Harman
Samuel Edward Konkin III
Voltairine de Cleyre
William Godwin

Yeah. I know all those people. But I'm hoping for a list of anarchists whose names most people will recognize. I don't want a lot of `huh? Who is he? Who is she?' with my list from the man on the street.

A communist is, by definition, an anarchist. The problem with communists is that a lot of them are Marxists. Marxism advocates installing anarcho-communism via an intermediary stage of totalitarian socialism.

Lennon, on the other hand, always promoted people jumping straight to communism. Hence "I hope one day you'll join us". He wanted people to educate themselves, and then mentally free themselves from the capitalist state.

I really respect Lennon. He's in my top five list.

ok, so let's be clear here. did lennon support government or did he support liberty? my impression was always that he supported a socialist government in america. i've been wrong before.
