An Anarchist FAQ is an FAQ written by an international work group of social anarchists connected through the internet. It documents anarchist theory and ideas while arguing that social anarchism is a better form of anarchism than individualist anarchism, which it critiques. It also explores other debates internal to the anarchist movement, and counters common arguments against anarchism. It has been in constant evolution since 1995. While it was started as a critique of anarcho-capitalism, by the time it was officially released it had become a general introduction to anarchism.
The FAQ is published under "copyleft" terms and it is dedicated to "the millions of anarchists, living and dead, who tried and are trying to create a better world." It was officially released online on July 19, 1996 to "celebrate the Spanish Revolution of 1936 and the heroism of the Spanish Anarchist Movement."
