How come he didn't try to hurt anybody? He tried to destroy somebody's property! This doesn't count?
Of course not. Anarchists destroy stuff. That's what they do. We should respect them for it. Standing for election and proving they have the respect of their fellow citizens and approval of their destroying stuff would just be a waste of time.
While there may be a few good people out there who understand what anarchy means, most of the people who call themselves anarchist are just idiots who like an excuse to destroy stuff.
