Anarchism and social crime

I totally do not agree with you. Gangsters, mobsters or who-ever can be just as oppressive as the state and I think it is very desirable that communities can defend themselves against them. Next to that I think it is just that people can oppose those who spread poison into the communities or those who try and take advantage of the 'lawless' situation of liberated areas.

In the article I don't read anything specifically against Albanians, nor against users (eg. junkies).

I think self-determination and self-justice is a fair part of anarchism. I think the dream of an anarchism where everybody is happy dancing in some kind of hippy-world without conflict is an illusion, but doesn't make anarchism any less appealing. It just means that in case of social crime, we ourselves got to do it and not 'hire' others (eg. cops or security folks) to do so.

Don't forget that on the other hand these criminal entities were also often driven into these neightbourhoods to wreck the social structures and appeal of communities, to disrupt them. This kind of getting 'cleansing' has also happened for instance in Italy in the '70's by the Autonomists with liberated/revolutionary neighborhoods. This action is nothing new and personally I applause it. Many liberated zones got flooded by dealers and the likes and mostly do the hood no good.
