Anarchist As Victim

I was making a presentation on nonviolence and anarchy when in passing I disdained "worker violence for change" with the idea that employment was voluntary, so why would anyone need to employ violence for change?

Well!  That did not go over well.  The audience asserted that the workers had no choice, no alternatives, so they had to do the work available, and thus violence was the only option.  Anarchist as victim.

Odd that, an anarchist depending on a boss for employment.  Seems to be an internal contradiction.  The anarchist answer to exploitation is migration, but of course we no longer have open borders, or, in other words, we have outlawed freedom.

I don't buy the anarchist as victim idea.
