Today's view of anarchy has far departed the original views of such men as Michael Bakunin, Peter Kropotkin, and William Godwin. The fight of the Spanish Civil War would be ridiculous in terms of the current definition of anarchy. The present misconceptions in regards to the meaning of anarchy are evident when one looks at the sources for information on anarchy available of the internet.
The definitions one discovers through the internet for anarchy are far off from the original intentions of anarchists. Several of the definitions I found were fairly accurate in explain anarchy in a few words, but more often they were not.
"Anarchy is any social relationship that involves neither dominance nor submission. It is the absence of social hierarchy, with no one imposing their will on another by force or threat of punishment. Anarchy means "without a ruler", or "without government". Government here is meant in the sense of "governing over" and forcing compliance through coercion. Such order is violent order. Anarchy, by contrast, is inherently cooperative- people relating to one another as equals."
This definition encompasses the idea that anarchists do not have a problem with government dirrectly, but with the fact that it creates a hiearchy and gives power to select individuals.
