    Umm, the wikipedia entry is pretty detailed, have a read thru some of the references used there?

    or you could search for some of the suggestions here?

    Shit dude, there's a few ancaps wankers haunting that page, i feel for ya!
    Does the group have an 'aims and principles' document or something similar? I had a look thru the group's documents and only found stuff about the organisational structure of yr collective.

    I have to tolerate the ancaps for now even though I don't want to. There are many different types of anarchists. I don't believe the ancaps. Most of the members are libertarian socialists.

    Having a relatively clearly defined set of 'aims and principles' can help with this and is pretty necessary in formal organisations. It can provide the basis for telling them to fuck off.

    And I don't think I could ever work with ancaps, what would we work together on? What is our common purpose? etc
    I'd be concerned that they would work at cross purposes to me if they were in the same collective. I don't see any advantages in 'big tent' 'anarchist' collectives, inclusion of ancaps on the basis that 'they call themselves anarchists' or whatever can undermine yr collective's ability to do worthwhile things. The thing about ancaps is not that they are 'the wrong type of anarchist', it is they are not anarchists.
    If other members have no problems with them in this group it makes things more difficult. I guess you can stick it out until something happens which makes clear to other members the irreconcilable differences between ancaps and non-fuckwits (which will happen), or you can 'do a trot' and force a split in the group (or set up a new one). The latter is fine, sometimes its preferable to work with 3 people you agree with then 100 you don't.
