So you've heard about these "anarchist jurisdictions", and you know it is a joke, meaningless usage of the word Anarchism as a pejorative much the same way these TV dictators froth at the mouth at the mere mention of Communism.
Many people who assume it to be synonymous with chaos and mindless acts of destruction, or maybe just a general air of anti-authoritarianism will skim past this headline and ones like it in the future, but Anarchism is not these things, it is a different way of looking at the world entirely.
If you're curious about what anarchism actually is, consider reading this FAQ to get started with the general principles and some history: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/the-anarchist-faq-editorial-collective-an-anarchist-faq-02-17
