Describe your political beliefs without using scary buzzwords like 'anarchist'. Say "I support direct democracy. I think the common people should make the decisions in our political process, not a bunch of congresspeople who are wealthy, corrupt, and out of touch with day-to-day life. I want workplace democracy, where you don't have to deal with shitty bosses and greedy CEOs. I think we need to drastically rethink how we handle the military, police, economy, and education. And I think we need to support women, minorities, and LGBTQ people in their struggle for equality, and give no platform to the disgusting, hateful people who don't even consider them human."

I've heard that works surprisingly well.

That's actually a very good idea. They don't care much about the freedom to make their own choices or how our welfare here in the west directly impacts those who aren't so lucky in the middle east and parts of asia, but i think they would have an easier time considering something simpler, that's more directly related to them, such as police, inequality, economy and handling apathic and greedy bosses.
