This is Peter. Peter is an anarchist.

This is Jane. Jane is a revolutionary syndicalist.

Peter and Jane like to play together. Today, they're playing the violent overthrow of the oppressive post-feudalist order. This is their favourite game.

Would you like to play the violent overthrow of the oppressive post-feudalist order with Peter and Jane? You can play too. You'll need some dynamite, a box of matches and a tin can.

If you haven't got these in your play room, you can find them in Daddy's workshop or Mummy's sewing kit.
