Even otherwise erudite non-Leftists often equate Anarchism with

That error was cultivated by the Marxists who arrogated the
terminology and suggestions for the organization of society of  the
Anarchists, distorted them and then applied them in a way we
Anarchists never intended and are beyond sickened by.

The piece to which I am providing the link is an excellent explication
of Anarchism vis-a-vis Marxism.

Before turning the reader over to the fine article, the text of which
is unfortunately vitiated by numerous typos, yet is worthwhile reading
for the thesis and information all the same; I should like to recall a
remarkable historical event.

I refer to the creation of an Anarcho-Syndicalist society, which
developed in many parts of the country into an Anarcho-Communist
society, in Spain in the 1930s. It is important to note that this
utterly amazingly successful endeavor was found to be a threat to the
Spanish (Fascist) Nationalists, Republican Democrats (the British),
The Nazis (not your garden variety Fascists) and the Bolsheviks alike.
Sworn mutual enemies all, they were yet more than willing and able to
act in collaboration and precision concert to crush the fledgling
Anarchist endeavor in Spain.

We Anarchists must be doing something right if every totalitarian and
semi-totalitarian regime on earth was willing to join forces aganst

Think Yin-Yang. Or, as we Jews say: The more something is holy the
more unholiness will be drawn to it and will attempt to destroy it and/
or create 'klippot' (shells) around it.

I hope it is clear that I am an Anarchist, not a Marxist. It is mutual
aid and a federation of workers' councils and direct democracy in the
form of face-to-face meetings that I should like to see in Israel, not
a dictatorship of statist capitalism, which is what Marxism is.

Here, then, is the article:
