    I think it would be cool if people would post their definitions of different common words
    on this forum, and then we could decide whose was the best, (most clear and understandable)
    and fit in inside of an official dictionary thread. Just to help people (including me) get
    these terms planted in their brains, and stop using them out of context.

    Words such as:

    Fascism
    Socialism
    Platformism
    Communism
    Nationalism
    Capitalism
    etc

    I'm not quite sure about the necessity of a "own" version of anarchopedia or other dictionaries, 'cause most I've seen offer quite acceptable definitions, even wikipedia is helpful sometimes and it's always better to use more than just one source.

    It's a bit uncomfortable to jump between web pages, reading something here and looking for definition elsewhere, ok, thats a point for making up a dictionary on anarchopunk.net.

    If we try to do it, we should do it together, collectively working out clear and understandable definitions by discussing the relevant matters - it's a good way for less informed/educated people to learn by doing, and I think it would be fun to do it this way.

    You can always ask questions, there are no wrong or silly questions - but it's always wrong and silly not to ask.

    (no, I am not that wise, it's an very old saying around where I live and it's just true)

    Other websites are not clear enough, or are just confusing. Ungovernable, im sure you could provide the whole thing if you wanted to.
    But IT IS a good opportunity for getting plenty of people involved, and getting more people comfortable with posting.

    Damn ungov, i was gunna post that shit, anything can be put at the beginning of "pedia" and youll get a dictionary or something on anything.

    About the silly questions thing... i used to think that way until one of my roomates in college who was from Uzbekistan was asked by my other roommates stupid ass g/f if they had water in his country and she wasnt drunk or being silly, it was serious. I almost threw a brick at her.

    Anarcho-pedia is already clear enough...

    I was planning to add an encyclopedia feature to the website, like on our other forum www.resistance.tk . When you move the cursor over a term related to anarchism, a small window pop-up with a definition (like on the left menu) and you can click to view the full definition of the word

    but it is a big feature and right now i dont have the time for that.... maybe later

    ok, you got a point here, and I guess it's that girl thing :ecouteurs: - and for that my g/f will throw a brick at me... :o and I will never learn if "... I Know you gentlemen have been..." is a quote from john carpenters "the thing" - because I always ask myself this silly question each time I see one of your quotes

    Fascism

    Fascism is a populist, collectivist and statist movement opposed to 'monopoly' capitalism and communism. All fascism recruits from all social classes it attracts mainly the middle classes since it appears to offer an 'alternative to Bolshevism' while permitting them to maintain their interests by establishing themselves as the Third Force between multinational and state capitalism.
    Fascism feeds on dissatisfaction, rancour, exaggerated nationalism, anti-communism and racial prejudice: all traits which flourish in times of political and social insecurity.
    Fascism has produced no rational system of ideas and has special appeal to those who lack the critical ability to bring together all the relevant facts and factors when assessing a situation and their own emotions; people who either through habit or inertia have become totally dependent on others for their opinions and who find uncritical obedience to authority both comfortable and advantageous.
