of course i dont either, but relying on them in a situation like arresting a rapist or someone who attacked you is not strenghtening them any more than relying on money to buy your tofu is strenghtening capitalism.
Cops are just a coincidental consequence of class society not a root cause to any problem.
It's particularly contradictory that you seem to be so down on actively creating and using alternatives more in line with Anarchism...
i dont see the contradiction. I use money, but want a moneyless society. I have a job but do not want bosses. I go to demos to demand UK gov to stop the war in Iraq, but want a world without politicians.
Don't make the all too common fallacy of taking social and political issues and just reducing them to individual lifestyle choices mate.
