First off, let me apologize for using those terms, left & right. What I mean by that is Anarcho-Communists and Anarcho-Capitalists.
What I mean by 'circular argument' is that it just goes around and around, always returning where it started, with no resolutions or agreements made. No further understanding is achieved either. Usually, neither side understands how in the world the other can believe what they believe. Let me be one of the few to say, I understand BOTH sides & I think that we argue with more platitudes than realistic statements.
One of the biggest issues there lies in the time setting of the discussion. I often find Anarcho-Capitalists will discuss life in a time AFTER government has been abolished, anarchy has been accepted as the most moral way of life, & communities are deciding amongst themselves what their rules should be (unanimously). Anarcho-Communists will discuss life in a time that is either BEFORE government has been abolished or DURING the abolishment of government. In the discussion of life before government is abolished, they usually seem to argue for a conversion from our current governing structure into communism, then just pull the leaders out afterward (I know I'm hacking the argument apart to a very bare bones view, but stick with me here). In the discussion of life during the abolishment of government, they're usually explaining that the conversion into anarchy would inherently (in their belief) go straight into communism, but without any leaders.
At first glance (& if you've never watched one of these arguments amongst anarchists happen) you might not see why that matters. So I hope I can lay out the arguments & dissect it accordingly so it all makes sense. I'll attempt to do so using the arguments as they usually happen when I'm in them.
THE ARGUMENT BEGINS!

http://submedia.tv/stimulator/2012/07/09/this-is-athens A personal account of my short visit to Athens, Greece. My initial intent was to do a report on the anarchist neighbourhood assemblies. Truth be told this task was more challenging than I expected. Few within the neighbourhood assembly scene agreed to be video taped or photographed for fear of retaliation by the police, their employers and fascists. I was also made aware of the troubling hardships undocumented immigrants and their supporters face, the rise of the neo-nazi party Golden Dawn, and the role of the police in suppressing social struggles. This piece is only a snapshot of the complex situation of a country in a state of "civil war." and how anarchists are reacting to it.
This week an exclusive interview with Antonis Vradis of Occupied London. Antonis filled us in on the history and actions of the anarchists in Greece.
This week: 1. Greek anarchists in Prague? 2. Golden Dawn's dark hour 3. Immigrants invade Athens' streets 4. Gay Pride is not afraid 5. Anti-Fa resistance 6. Run this town. 7. Just do it!
At the Intersection of Main & Church Street in Thurmont, Maryland, a few hundred Ethiopians gathered from around the country and the world. Six miles from the GB summit at Camp David, the entrance to the heart of the downtown area was blocked from vehicle entry by local police. The intersection where protestors had gathered was controlled by various police officers and a couple of dozen riot police in full gear. The protest rally was being attended by a few dozen other people who lined the sidewalks, some were gathered to observe the protestors, others were there as protestors and occupiers from the region, carrying signs for their own political causes and standing in solidarity.
Ethiopians organized collectively to protest Prime Minister Zenawi's attendance at the G8 summit. Zenawi has ruled in Ethiopia since 1991, and is on lists at Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Genocide Watch, for possible crimes against humanity and human rights abuses.
The General Strike in Oakland had many marches throughout the day including this march against Capitalism, which to many means a march against the private ownership of property. Unfortunately some members of our community (as well as undercover police) felt that it was acceptable to assault our fellow comrades because they felt damage to property was much more of an important issue than solidarity and/or non-violence.
