i understand the meaning of the word subvert but i don't understand the point you are trying to make in your posts, they don't appear to make any sense.

Agents provocateur are subverted because of the nature of power which exploits them, making them oppressors of the basest measure. But they are not subversive because this requires autonomy. As anarchists there is a lot we can achieve with subversion to bring about the revolution and avoid the inevitable consequences of violence.

Sorry, you are making no sense whatever. The above is nonsensical.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
and I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
and I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

To be frank, that's not anarchism or living as an anarchist ,it's just liberalism and wont fix anything.

This is a reply to back2front:

Anarchy would be recognised by its sympathisers and supporters as a meeting of minds and efforts inculcated towards a tangible reality, in other words, the realisation of anarchism. In spite of the vast amount of cooporation various positions hold for anarchists the opportunity to put their concept of it into action, but this should not mean that solidarity is seen to as a true reflection of the individual in the struggle. It has grown organically alongside the mechanism of capital, it is the custom of the struggle, and in so far as they might be identified as separate ideas, the reality is that the two processes intensify as they get closer to the enemy, capitalist domination, the true cause of exploitative authority, oppressive misery and wanton dispossession - freedom being our goal overall.

We have had fields, factories, workshops and bombs. The question we have to ask is what are the hopes of such a sectarian influence on the anarchist movement generally?

you can sum up an anarchist in one statement; somebody who disagrees with the state (as a political apparatus).

Though sadly the anarchist movement just like the workers movement as a whole has been stained with all these fuckers.

Perhaps I'm being pedantic here, but I've always viewed anarchists, historically and in practice, first as anti-capitalists, and secondly as socialists who've come to the realization that the state is an inherently hierarchical, dominating institution designed to prop up a ruling class.

I mean, in theory, the right-wing of the Republican party "disagrees with the state" but views it as a "necessary evil". It's the class struggle element of anarchism and the desire for a non-hierarchical socialist society that defines us.

Also, what does this mean?

Anarchists are sectarian extremists with big bushy beards who know the answers to everything. They dress in black capes and masks, and bomb parliment and assassinate world leaders regularly. Are you one of THEM?

now that explains the rustling in bushes at the bottom of my garden it's you spying on me lol

yes I have a big bushy beard, I've been accused of knowing the answer to everything (but as the taoist in me will state, the wise man knows he knows nothing)
I do wear a lot of black, but sadly no cape or mask lol
as for bombing parliament and assassinating world leaders....you can't prove that I did it... er... I mean nope wasn't me *walks away whistling innocently*

ok joking aside. to me an anarchist is someone who has the fortitude of mind and body to stand up for what he believes, to not just through words but also actions fight against injustice and discrimination he/she sees even when the whole world is against them. someone who does not kneel before kings, or bend their necks to emperors but instead bows only to the truth. someone who fights not for their own freedom but for the freedom of all around them, even if those people refuse to stand up for what they believe or desire be it through fear or blind obedience. to me that is an anarchist
