In The Political Philosophy of Post-Structuralist Anarchism, for example, Todd May argues that while anarchist theory seems at times to conceptualize power as “bad” and freedom as “good”—a model that would link anarchist philosophy to liberal utilitarianism, which, as Saul Newman (2004 107–126) points out, is precisely how Nietzsche viewed it—one can also detect a “tactical,” as opposed to “strategic” approach to political struggle. Whereas a strategic approach, May (1994, 10) argues, “involves a unitary analysis that aims towards a single goal,” a tactical approach grows from the recognition that power is exercised at all levels of society, dispersed both horizontally and vertically, and therefore cannot be reduced to one particular site or goal: “[a]narchist political intervention” May writes, “issues from a recognition of the network character of relationships of power and of the variety of intertwined but irreducible oppressions that devolve upon those relationships” (1994, 154).
