Sons of Anarchy, Esq.

I just saw a promo of a new TV show about bikers/gangs called "Sons of Anarchy." In the ad, a bad-ass lookin' biker dude looks with disdain at the dork in the truck next to his bike at a stop light and says "we're all free men, protected by The Constitution."

Perhaps he doesn't understand the definition of the word "anarchy?" I'm pretty sure citing legal documents is the last thing an anarchist is supposed to do when arguing his political/ethical world views.

You've definitely put your finger on a very real inconsistency. Anarchists don't tend to look at anything beyond their self-interest to justify their behavior, with the only "constitution" they recognize being their own physical ability to prevail.
