    Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi. (which, I guess would be like leader of a parliament or state legislative body) was elected in December. He's been leading agitation against government corruption lately. Claiming the the police have been negligent in stopping gang rapes. He gave an impromptu speech last week, declaring himself an anarchist.

    I sounds like he might be using the anarchist in the negative sense of the word, but on the other hand, I notice that his political party – the AAP – declares Swaraj as it's ideology. Which was advocated by Gandhi, and is something like anarchism. I believe Gandhi got some ideas from Kropotkin.

    BTW, in doing some reading about this, I discovered that India has instituted a “None of the Above” option for elections. When can we get that here? :lmao:
