People argue with me all the time about anarchy. A lot of people can’t get over the erroneous dictionary definition equating anarchy with chaos. Anarchy means the absence of government, the absence of state. I ask you…do bad people stop doing bad things because there are laws against them? do good people need laws to behave ethically? I realize that lawmaking is not the sole function of government, but that is the reason most people give when I ask why they don’t think anarchy could work. I guess that a lot of people would rather have organized criminals in charge of everything instead of the Road Warrior future most imagine when thinking of anarchy. Ah well. But I will say this. My main reason for being an anarchist is that people who want authority over others rarely, if ever, have the best interest of those they rule over at heart. OK, to be technical I really believe I am a social libertarian, but we don’t really have that in the US. It’s really a european concept that grew out of the anarchist movement there, but I can still like it.
