the nonexistence of government. The theory became popular in the 80s punk/hardcore scene, but for the most part has since faded away. Mostly seen today when posers write it on their books and bags and anything else they can find to write on. its rare to find a true anarchist anymore, but they're out there, and when they talk about their beliefs, no one listens to them because they're "crazy" and the world "needs" structure. Contrary to most belief, Anarchy does not HAVE to be chaos (although it usually is)
True freedom, equality and peace can ONLY exist in a perfect and untainted state of anarchy.

A state of society where there is no governing body, synomym for chaos. The idea of anarchy is to have an equal power distributed throughout all society, people screw that part up but wanting more than is alotted to them. There is no lack of morality, just that the morality is chosen by the individual, not by the government. Anarchy has been tried in the past, such as in Catalonia during the Spanish Civil War, but has never succeeded. Anarchy usually has a negative conotation due to those who follow it and wish it, but is basically what you make it.
That guy is an anarchic! He's cool!

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!

A plausible social system involving no government, and no hierarchy. Society is a collection of non-hierarchical groups of people voluntarily cooperating. With the internet complex deals between groups could be made more efficient in a short period of time.
Many people say anarchy will never work. But if you think about it if man's nature is inherently corrupt why trust man to rule over man? It would be better to have a society with a general understanding that using force or coercion against somebody who isn't threatening your person is always unjustified. Any struggle to achieve an anarchist society would essentially involve education about how the new society would function, so the goal of creating a society with this common ethical understanding would definitely be achieved if an anarchist struggle ever succeeded. And government is basically the institution that has a general monopoly on force in a given territory. It doesn't hold up to reason that force used in a given circumstance would be right for the government, but wrong for an individual or private group.

The well-thought-out philosophy of drawing the letter A with a circle around it on traffic signs, getting all your political information from punk rock songs, and moaning about your conformist parents who won't let you go skateboarding until you've done the dishes. They like, totally don't understand you man because they're just cogs in the corporate machine and you're so original and against conformity with your trucker hat, studded belt and ripped girl's jeans. I bet they just believe everything they hear on Fox News. They should listen to more NOFX instead. Fuckin' dad!

Oh yeah, property is theft and as long as there are employers we will never be free. Down with capitalism....and stuff.

Yeah, man. You're deep. Rage on.
Anarchy is the dream of many rich, male, spoiled white kids from the safe, secure suburbs (in other words, the core demograph of punk rock fans).

The Anarchist was dumbfounded when his teacher told him that she wanted more credible sources of information than Dropkick Murphys and Bad Religion lyrics for his term paper explaining what anarchy is.
