Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 14. June 25, 1968



Sir—If Murray Rowlands is an anarchist then I'm a member of the Labour Party. I am not a member of the Labour Party. If Mr Rowlands thinks he can undermine the power of the state from within, by joining a political party, then he indulges in wishful thinking.

Paltry palliatives like the proposed abolition of the Security Service do not impress me. When the Labour Party becomes the government and votes itself out of existence, I will begin to take some notice of Mr Rowlands absurd position. He has negated all concepts of anarchism by becoming party to an authoritarian bureaucracy. New Zealand anarchists will have as much scorn for his claims as they have for the state of which he seems to be a willing and enthusiastic tool.
