520    Christian anarchism has been around for at least as long 
       as "secular" anarchism. Leo Tolstoy is its most famous 
       proponent, but there are many others, such as Jacques 
       Ellul, Vernard Eller, Dave Andrews or the people 
       associated with the Catholic Worker movement. They offer a
       compelling critique of the state, the church and the 
       economy based on the New Testament
