1. Society's reset-button.

2. Term in the punk-movement, rendered meaningless due to overuse.
1. The next world war.

2. Look at the big red mark on the back of just about anyone with a mohawk. I mean, apart from native Americans.

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.

If used for a system, for a long time period it simply wouldn't work. Capitalism usualy thrives from anarchy. The person with the biggest gang and the biggest guns would rule over everyone else. Anarchy is pure freedom but the human race can't deal with pure freedom because of it's own selfishness, people would live in fear, people would get killed/robbed alot more frequently. Look at corperations today, one person makes billions while people in the third would earn next to nothing. Anarchy can be good as it is the result of a revolution which hopefully turns in socialism

ps vote socialist

opposition to government, a place where individual people govern theirselves. people claim that with no government poeple would riot the streets, but since it has never happened, nobody can tell for sure. anarchy is simply a government without a government.
most people claim anarchy won't work being there is no order

A bullshit idea that revolves around the idea of no government. This idea also suggests that everyone in a community should work together for the better of the community, which will not happen because some people are selfish and most will not enjoy this way of living. This idea is mostly used by punks who think believing in anarchy is rebellious when most of them do not know anything about anarchy or believe in it because their friends do.
Typical punk - "Fuck the government, Anarchy is the way to go!"

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.
