The existence of factory farms (or farms at all, arguably) proves that the all-consuming domination of at least a-human animals by at least humans exists, so claiming the concept of "anarchy" doesn't apply to their lives at best abandons them to be imprisoned forever, at worst naturalizes their imprisonment. And that's just one facet of it -- any life one claims "anarchy" doesn't apply to is one that can experience fierce authoritarianism bereft of solidarity from others.

Perhaps I should have said "anarchism" instead of anarchy from the get go, because I agree with what you said. I was simply off-put, apparently because of a failure of myself to communicate properly, by a statement that because a nightshade is living in "anarchy", "anarchy" cannot be a culture. Anarchism is human made. Anarchism is a human culture, that cannot be put onto animals/plants as if they are anarchists, it simply affects our attitude towards non human beings.
Farming is authority, a hierarchy, and in my opinion at least, anarchism is against it. Anarchism is a human culture though.
sorry for the late response.
Oh, okay! That makes sense actually. Out of curiosity (if you're still invested in this thread!) would you not see any value then in extending the term "anarchist" (either as an adjective or a noun) to any context outside of anarchism as a culture/ideology? Or would that just muddle the anarch-ic with all the baggage of anarch-ism?
