Che Guevera, Nelson Mandela and Leo Tolstoy are recognized as anarchists

Anarchism is an ideology which emphasizes on the creation of a state which isn’t ruled by a government, but the masses themselves. Although Anarchism aims at eradicating hierarchy in a society, it has often been criticized and has been seldom followed. The prime reason is the widespread belief that anarchy leads to a state of disorder and chaos. Many activists, over the past few decades, have earned the title of ‘prominent anarchists’. The hero of the Cuban revolutionary movement - Ernesto ‘Che Guevara’, Nelson Mandela, writers Leo Tolstoy and Oscar Wilde are considered one of the most famous anarchists of all time. Che Guevara, along with Cuban communist icon Fidel Castro, staged a political coup to overthrow Fulgencio Batista, the dictator responsible for the sorry state of affairs in the Latin American nation for a long time. Many eminent writers like Oscar Wilde too opposed capitalistic governance and felt that anarchy is ideal for a society.
