Many people I know who reject this theory as a whole prefer to see
Anarchism FAQ as a political statement: this makes it more convenient to
reject it without arguing about its details.

And not so many human beings who have _read_ all of its statements ;-)

It is my _opinion_ ;) that in social theories, even more than in other
humanitarian disciplines, it is impossible to draw the line between
educating and reflecting opinion. And there are many people who
positively refuse to draw that line, which is also an important factor
when speaking in _social_ context.
