Anarchism is possibly the most misunderstood political philosophy ever.

Anarchy can work, and HAS worked, but right now probably wouldn't work with the state the world is in right now (drugs, gangs, civil wars, etc.)

Anarchy is not chaos, as laws are uneccessary anyway, even when there is a government to enforce them. As Ammon Hennacy said, "Oh, judge, your damn laws, the good people don't need them and the bad people don't follow them, so what good are they?" Like I said before, if anarchy were to happen right now chaos would probably ensue, but this largely due to how fucked up our governments have let the world become.

Government is an unneccessary evil. The idea that people should be bound by agreements their ancestors made is absurd. I believe I am better fit to run my own life that George Bush is.

If you ever see anny dumbass in an anarchy shirt from hot topic, scribbling it in textbooks at school, I want you to ask them to explain anarchy to you. Chances are they have no fucking clue as to what they're talking about and will tell you that they want chaos so that they can blow things up and drink. Punch them in the face for me.

Anarchy would be a very bad idea to try right now. In times like these anarchism is better left as an ideal for people who do get it. It's not something worth arguing about over the internet, because anarchy is not going to happen on a large enough scale to matter in anyone's lifetime who is alive today, and if there was anarchy, there probably wouldn't be an internet for very long ;).
All my teachers want to tell me how bad an idea anarchy would be, when I already know that. They need to tell that to the idiots who listen to sexist and homophobic music such as Insane Clown Posse and wear anarchy shirts they bought from Hot Topic.

Theres a real simple definition of the term anarchy that everyone seems to lack an understanding of;or aleast the majority of people defining the word on this site. Its pretty obvious that all anarchy can ever really be (unless the world started over) is an idea, a dream or a belief system that selfish, capitolistic and murdering fools were not able to run shit. Reason being, the government is too powerful and too witty to ever overthrow.

Its obvious that a true anarchist wants to be peaceful,but you just cant get what you want without strength in numbers, money, and power. O and the abilty to kill, torture, or incarcerate anyone who disagrees with you. Thats what the government has. HOW BOUT YOU!

And the reason theres misguided youths running around wearing black and causing mayhem should be crystal. Subconciously, they know somthing is wrong with the way we are governed,unfortunately theres just no one around to sit them down and explain to them the real reasons shits so fucked up. Come on; these kids get lied to on a daily basis on just about everything thats going on around them.and until they get past puberty and have lived a little, they wont understand why they are lashing out, but their time will come, hopefully without the law intervening. Hopefully its on their own terms and realizations. These are actually really smart kids. They just recieve alota wrong information and hidden truths.
Theres literally millions of people that are anarchist and have never even heard the word. I wonder why. why is it that our prisons and jail systems are packed with people of poor communities. Its all about capitolism and oppression. The only way to fight the system is with your mind. You cant take action agaisnt anything as powerful as a goverment. Hence my definition, notice I said MY DEFINITION, of anarchy as being an idea, a concept, nothing more than a dream. Unless you wanted a war. And who wants that?

1. An idea misinterpreted by "punks" to mean chaos and a complete lack of structure in society.

2. A society with no government in which people work cooperatively to thrive. The ideal of communism. Theoretically, this is completely possible - as long as people in a society are not conditioned to crave power, everyone can work together at the same level in peace.
1. ANARCHY IS COOL!!! (probably knows nothing about the true meaning of anarchy...)

2. Anarchy, or something very close to it, exists in hunting-gathering societies. It cannot exist in today's advanced, industrial societies because people in these societies are conditioned to crave power and money. However, if we started things all over from the beginning and really tried to make a collective, anarchist system work, it could, in theory, last forever.

anarchism is the only way to respect people. It is based on self-knowledge: when you deeply know yourself and you're in contact with your nature, you have a perfect contact with other human beings and you can understand everyone's needs. Other lifestyles are offensive for human beings, cause they admit that we cannot manage our lives by ourselves but we need a chief, a boss, a head of state and so on... so we admit that we need someone to tell us what to do. It's offensive for our intelligence.

Anyway, we love to be stupid slaves so anarchy cannot work.
am i really free right now in anarchy? please tell me what i have to do right now!

Something that, currently, has become over popular. Everyone seems to have an anarchy tattoos or has written it on something or has bought something with it on there. IF YOU BUY SOMETHING WITH THE ANARCHY SYMBOL ON IT YOU ARE SUPPORTING THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY ARE PROFITING FROM WHAT YOU BOUGHT!
Anarchy is everywhere.

Some ignoramusses (spelling is not my strong point)would call anarchy merely doing whatever you want. This system would not work. Real anarchy is what is best for everybody. It is where everyone acts in their own interests whilst taking into account the wishes of others. In an anarchic state, religeon, government, and other such institutionalised ways of thinking/organistations would not exist. Anarchy is the perfect way to live, but sadly, falls into the same catergory as communism in the eyes of the US and other capitalist world powers. We are told to belive that anarchy is a bad thing, but most do not know what it means. It has been assigned it's negative connotation (pure chaos) by governments worldwide, in order to preserve the system. The system of discrimination and hatred, which is leading you deeper and deeper down the dark road of oppression and subjigation.
"Anarchy rules muthafuckers! And you don't even know what it really means, yet you choose to oppose it."

1. what 12 year old middle class "punk rockers" write allover everything they own while yelling about how the "system" is getting them down and how somehow the world would be a more equal, peaceful place if everyone could go around robing and killing anyone who is weaker, while repeating the phrase " punks not dead" like some kinda mantra... then go tell their principal when they get there weed money robbed by a bigger kid.

2. what a lot of people mistake for autonomy

3. similar to communism in the sense that people who support it believe that people have everyones best interests at heart and wouldnt screw thousands of people over in a second for personal gain.

4. something someone really smart had the idea of pasting the symbol for allover all types of merchandise to SELL AND MAKE MONEY off the hardcore anarchists supporting their corporations.
retard: hey man the world would be a better place if it was anarchy.

person: how?

retard: because everyone would be equal and we would all make the decisions and work together for the greater good of everyone

person: your so fucking stupid i want to go anarchist on your ass and beat you to a bleeding pulp cuz i can. your thinking of autonomy.

retard: no, if there were no rules or law nobody would fight or starve or argue.

person:.....? do society a favour, go listen to the exploited or some other wank ass band that ruined punk rock on your ipod touch, buy a bunch of overpriced patches and t shirts made by kids in sweat shops by the corporations you think your trying to take down, then dig a hole and die in it.
