    But authentic anarchism of any flavor is based on the principle of not allowing unjustified authority.

    Thus, it is not at all correct to use the term to describe authoritarian systems.

    Capitalism is authoritarian by definition, and for that reason the term anarchism does not apply to the so-called "free" market, which in capitalism is anything but free.

    True anarchists are all anti-capitalist, and against wage slavery, because these are authoritarian in nature. There are no exceptions.

    You can use the term anyway you like, but I will point out incorrect usage if I'm around to comment.
