PETTY B OURG EOIS Notwithstanding this preference for non-revolution­ ary unions, and condemnation of Anarchists for unions built from the bottom up, all Marxist-Leninists have a seemingly contradictory criticism of Anarchists, namely "they are petty bourgeois". This leads them into another difficulty - how can one reconcile the existence of anarcho-syndicalist unions with "petty-bourgeois" origins - and how does one get over the fact that most Marxist-Leninists of today are pro­ fessional ladies' and gentlemen studying for or belonging to the conservative professions?

Hence they are Anarchism: Arguments For and Against - 27 unable to make ta ke advantage of the situations they create, and the bourgeoisie, regrouping its strength, turns to fascism". A Tory would say that Marxist-Leninists are Anar­ chists "because they wish to create Anarchy to create the conditions in which they would seize power", Both are ab­ surdities. Anarchists can, of course, "seize power" no less than anyone just as a teetotaler can get blind drunk, but they would hardly continue to merit the name.

Others may be sym­ pathetic to Anarchism as both desirable and possible but refrain from action in its favour. To borrow a phrase from another part of the forest, they may be fellow travelers of Anarchism. The Polic� are the cornerstone of the State (though sometimes, in extreme cases, the Government of the day needs to use the armed forces in lieu of, or in addition to the1 police - in some countries this has led to replace­ ment or control of the Government by the army so long as the officers are tightly in control).
