An Anarchhist Need Not Be a Terrorist

My newspaper article today linked “anarchism” with terrorism and violence. Please know that the Grammar Anarchist is a gentle soul who loves words and honors the language of the U.S. My anarchism is directed at those stuffy grammarians who pretend to have “rules” that must be followed. Ah, but there are so many sets of “rules”. My mission is to encourage writers to look at them, then decide for yourself which to follow. The Grammar Anarchist proclaims: Down with “rules”; Hooray for guidelines!

Aren't you terrorizing us with your failure to recognize rules of English? I follow the rules I was taught in school and so far I haven't had a problem.

Depends on which "rules" you learned. I wonder how spirited your writing has become.
