a way of life in which there is no supposed "form of government," has become popular by followers of the punk pop culture beause they (a) do not understand what it is, (b) think it is a sign for avril lavigne, or (c)know what it is, but don't realize that it will never work

it is completely impossible for there to be no form of government, human nature forces us to look to authority figures for guidance, and also when some fucker comes and steals from you, your gonna want said fucker to pay for it, getting together a group to go after him, said group will become a tribe, and such will happen all over the world

the punk posers who say they support anarchy and are aggainst the "corporations" do not realize that their beloved hot topic is a corporation, so is the anarchy brand name, the anarchy brand is truly smart, they realize the stupid shit for brain skaters have no idea what the fuck anarchy really is and will buy whatever is "in"

anarchy is a good idea, in theory, SUPPOSING every single person was willing to work and share the fruits of their labor with the rest of the world, sure, it could happen, but there will always be people who say, fuck no, you give me some of that "whatever they made" and ill give you what you want, causing people to eventually revert to a system of money, going against everything true "anarchists" stand for

oh, and the a with the o around it is the anarchy symbol, not the avril sign
punk fucker: dude, lets go skate, and then buy some anarchy shit from hot topic
me: do you even know what anarchy is?
punk fucker: yeah dude, GO AVRIL

It's the absence of goverment, to put it simply.
It's where you believe that you should have no goverment. Therefor, you have no system of law. Obviously. No laws, nothing. Just human beings ruling themselves. Which of course, would equal total chaos. And a collasped society. Making Anarchy a waste of time.
Guy: I need to find an Anarchy symbol?
Me: Why?
Guy: I'm putting it on my website. How do you spelll anarchy?
Me: a-n-a-r-c-h-y. Why, do you beleive in anarchy?
Guy: Hell yeah! Anarchy is what we need right now.
Me: -snort- Anarchy is the LAST thing we need right now.
Guy: How so?
Me: ugh. do you even know what anarchy is?
Guy: Yeah. It's where you hate the goverment.
Me: It's more than that.
Guy: -silence-
Me: You believe you should have no goverment. And we need a more enforced goverment with this war.
Guy: Well... you'd have a leader...
Me: That'd be Monarchy. That's a form of goverment.
Guy: Well, you'd have SOME sort of goverment...
Me: Anarchy is the ABSENCE of goverment, moron.

Literally, society without government. Initially, it would likely be chaotic, and violent, but may stabilize into a safe system eventually. All this is hypothetical, because there's been no long lasting, large scale example to draw precident from.

A lifestyle typically seen in early man and all animals. Somewhere along the line man decided he needed someone to take care of him. Freedom and power are an illusion.

Anarchy is a theoretical form of self-government which is practically unattainable. Historically Anarchy only exists between the shifts between other known forms of government, and it is in fact no government. There are two types of Anarchists: punk rockers, and romantic political philosophers.

The main argument of anarchistic thought is that any appointed, hereditary, or aristocratic government is coersive in nature, and coersion is intrinsically evil. Therefore, all government is inherently evil. The only solution to eliminate coersion in society is to live in the state of anarchy.
The main flaw of this argument is that in order to completely eliminate coersion even in a system of direct democracy there cannot be majority rule, that is the whole society has to unanimously agree on all issues. This is not a practical solution, but a theoretical state of perfect unanimity which is an extreme condition only possible in theory, an utopia.
A state under Anarchy is either a state ruled completely and unanimously by all the people for the people, or a state in civil war.
