People use the word anarchy as if it meant something bad. In truth, it is the ultimate right wing philosophy: no government at all.
When people cry about the downside of anarchy, typically they point to unrest and killing. This doesn't make sense at all. Throw out whatever number you can find about the number of people killed each year by anarchists. I guarantee it won't even come close to the number killed by governments, whether through torture and/or murder of the very people they pretend to protect, or by the mass killing of foreigners through war. American soldiers killed more people in Iraq in one day under George Bush than anarchists have killed in all the years since.
Unrest? What exactly is causing the so-called unrest in the world? You guessed it - GOVERNMENT. People aren't satisfied (one way or the other) with whatever governmental arrangement they have, so they riot. Government does or does not do this or that, and people get pissed. Why have a government at all if you would be better off taking care of yourself and those you care about.
Some liberal nutbags will tell you we need government to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves. Hogwash. Just look at the current state of affairs for proof. Government taking over the healthcare system for just this purpose has caused nothing but problems for everyone. All that happened was that the problems that government was allegedly trying to fix (ironically but not surprisingly caused by the same government doing the same things) simply got worse.
Anarchy does not mean unrest. It means peace. People are free to decide exactly what law to accept, what security entities they wish to utilize, and even what to offer and/or accept as money. No one is forced to accept or deny anything. No government to get people riled up about stuff that shouldn't even be happening.
It couldn't be any worse than what we already have.
And it couldn't be any more right wing.
Let's do it!
