Social anarchism (sometimes referred to as socialist anarchism or anarcho-socialism) is generally considered to be the branch of anarchism which sees individual freedom as being dependent upon mutual aid.  Social anarchist thought generally emphasizes community and social equality.  The term emerged in the late 19th century as a distinction from individualist anarchism.
