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.
