  • It would be utopia.

    Worldwide anarchy is something to strive for. It would not be utter chaos, and to think so just shows how little real thought you put into this. To describe anarchy as chaos means you had your first thought, "There would be no laws or authorities," and came to your first conclusion, "Everyone would run amok," and then just stopped thinking. There are still consequences to your actions in anarchy. Most people would still live peaceably, but everyone would be their own police. If someone decides there are no police, so they're going looting, raping, and killing, they would quickly learn how much more effective free people are at being their own police. If there's one thing the government can do, it's mess everything up. Jobs would still be there, but you wouldn't have to work for less wages than you want, and you would not be obligated to "give" the authorities their "piece." If they were truly, inherently your authorities, then they wouldn't NEED anything from you to maintain their position. Thinking this way, you realize that all authority is illusory inasmuch as it is voluntary. If anyone who voted no in the first place revisits this site, I hope you would take all of these things under consideration and think more than one move ahead about this. Consider all of things that CANNOT exist in anarchy: 1. Any kind of discrimination. That's right sexism, racism, homophobia, religious persecution, class warfare, any kind of situation where one group belittles another is not possible unless that group asserts some AUTHORITY over another group. Yes, individuals can still harbor ill-will to any group of people they want in anarchy, but without any irresistible force to impress their will upon others, there are no teeth in the -isms. 2. Corruption. That's right, it is not possible for governments to sell out their constituents, accept bribes, write themselves in pay raises, murder their people, spy on their people, etc if they don't exist. 3. Full scale war. Some disputes may arise, but millions of people going to war with tanks and bombs and nerve gas? Most improbable. Do you know how many people it takes to run one aircraft carrier? Now consider that everyone one of the people with the competency to operate it together as a team must ALL BELIEVE IN THE CAUSE. You know, I could keep going on, but I'm already over 400 words. There are plenty of great places to start if you want to read up on different perspectives on anarchy. In the spirit of anarchy (and true freedom), I will make no recommendations. Get a taste of freedom and believe whatever you want. Read things supporting anarchy. Read things against it. Read nothing. As long as you are not mired in the lives of celebrities, the outcomes of reality TV or the "contest" type shows, or a slave to internet porn, then you are advancing yourself and contributing to the intellectual growth of our species. Good for you.

  • Anarchy is the only sensible option now.

    Look at the state of the world. The governments of the world don't care about the people. They only care about pleasing their elite masters. We live in a world where we are not free to do what we want with our own land, property or bodies. We are pushed into labor and we are forced to give part of our earnings to the government under threat of being thrown in a cage. If you resist the cage, you're threatened with violence. Your tax dollars go to blowing up innocent families overseas. Take a very close look at the world. It is barbaric and not being run in the best interest of the people, but instead to benefit a select few at the detriment of the majority. The playing field is not even. The deck is stacked. We are all slaves and it is time to cast off the shackles and turn on our masters. I'm sick of all the suffering, the death, the systematic stripping of wealth from the people to prop up the death machine we call government. Racial division is government control. The war on terror is a farce. Every innocent civilian is regarded with suspicion and is subject to invasive surveillance. The drug war is for control. They cook the drugs or import them, flood the streets, then cage the victims. We need to end government for the sake of humanity. Most people just want to live in peace. And those who don't will soon find out what happens when they try to victimize people who look after each other.
    Think about it. If your friend was being robbed, would you just stand and watch? Or would you stand by your friend and defend them? We're not helpless sheep, despite what the government would have you believe. We can take care of ourselves. And more importantly, we're social creatures, and we can take care of each other.
    In a society where everyone is taken care of and fed and comfortable, would crime really be a big problem? Most crime is a consequence of not being able to survive in this system. If we are able to grow our own food and collect rain water without being arrested for it (that's the biggest sign that a revolution is due) and we can all get by, rather than being protective of our resources, we would be willing to share. No point in stealing to feed yourself when someone offers you a meal.

    Government, consumerism and selfishness need to go or we are doomed as a species.

  • The Natural World is Anarchy.

    From the way a tree grows under the canopy of larger trees, to the daily life of birds, anarchy is present. Many of the genus around us predate our society, yet they are still functional to this day, and benefit the whole, more so than anything man has implemented for them. Think of the methods we democratically implement when we imprison animals, or even the domestication of them. Central to the relationship is dominance, and this perversion of natural norms causes untold amounts of dysfunction.
    Now, take away the cages, but maintain the scenario with a human child and adult as the subjugated ones. The way in which they're allowed to live is democratic, the ruling body offered them a choice to live or die, have a cage or be homeless. They were given the illusion of choice. All earnings produced in captivity go to the captor. I could go further but will keep this short. Anarchy is the natural order of the world, a compilation of systems developed by the whole to benefit the whole.

  • Why do we need governments they do absolutely nothing and take good money that could be put to good use and waste it.

    Its our cash, why can we not as communities decide what happens.... More voting more often, we spend fortunes on security companies because out police aren't paid well. Government own companies should be run by individuals, in order for things to start moving forward. South Africa is going backwards, fast.... I am not sure there is hope yet? Medical services, homes, food.... Really....

  • The Venus Project https://www.Thevenusproject.Com/

    The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

  • Life is just

    Life would be based more on living then buying. Money wouldn't be in control anymore people would learn to traid there own goods for needed items.
    When told not to do something what do you wanna do... What your told not to do right. That society in a nutshell. Free the world

  • Yes we could live without government

    As long as we still follow the rules our religion gives us . There would be peace there would be no coruption to lie to us there would be no money and greatest of all there would be no power over man kind but we would need to work together for the benifit of all man kind

  • It is "possible."

    But possible in the sense that there would be nothing to hold back the animal within us. If a person can kill you, whats to stop him from doing so without a police force? I would agree that government does interfere in ways that it has no business, such as sexuality and narcotics, but that doesn't mean I'll forsake things like health care and public schools. You just have to take the good with the bad.

  • Look at the past.

    It is stated in the Federalist #51 that " if men were angels, no government would be necessary" obviously this suggests that men are not angels, and ergo this type of Government would not be possible. Also who would be there to build the roads, and bridges; and other basic infrastructure which is built by people giving their taxes to the government who then spends it as we would hope wisely; but possibly not.

  • Not everybody can help themselves.

    One of these opinions says that everyone can be there own police, but what about the people that obviously cant. Handicapped people, or the elderly. What are they supposed to do band together and try to defend themselves. You may not like every thing the government does but you still need it. The same way you don't like every thing your parents do or tell you to do you still need them.

  • The anthropological and archeological record says no

    Humans are as a species, genetically programed to be gregarious. And to form groups which turn into organized hierarchies of power and influence. Primatologists know this, and the archeological record shows clearly that man has, since the beginning, been a species dependent on one another for a variety of reasons, whether it is to gain benefits by exploiting common resources, or by mating within the species. It's only as we move into higher organizational forms that politics come into play and disagreements about resources emerge. But the reality is, we have had organizing structure since we began either by elders or by brute cometition. We would not survive without it.

  • Possible but not Realistic

    Several thousand governments exist for each State of the United States (source: US Census Bureau, Census of Governments). Nobody purposely created the problems they are designed to resolve. Governments are simply the organized effort of people. Libertarian arguments never provide any solutions nor, when scrutinized, possess any real factual basis.

  • The human race is not ready...

    The human race is not ready for anarchy. When the world is rid of child molesters, murderers, rapists, and thieves; then maybe we can consider not having a governing force to protect us. Please also consider who will take care of our roads? Fund our hospitals (I live in Canada where we have a universal healthcare system), support of schools, etc?

  • Yes, of course! (BUT)

    I think human nature, just like mother nature in grand itself, is both good and evil, and some sort of leader is required and always has been since the beginning of time, not only to humans but animals as well. A leader = some sort of structure, to help people within a group communicate and work with each other, because our nature is completely chaotic, we are all over the place, happy one day, angry the next, crazy and violant, yet peaceful and calm.
    I think our government has destroyed and brainwashed the people, so as you can see, it's not a "leader" I was talking about, it's actually something that created even more chaos then there ever was, so I think it's hard to live without a government right now because we need some sort of map to our oh so messed up playground they have built us, BUT we are definitely capable to live without them.

  • Life without government is not possible.

    People naturally form communities. It is necessary for survival. Within these communities are rules and norms. Many of them are unwritten, the most important ones are stated.

    The role of government is to set up a structure that provides a fair system to allow for commerce and trade that allows people to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As analogy the government should be like the NFL Rules committee that wants to make sure that play on the field is fair and that each team has an equal chance of winning.

  • We are used to having a government.

    I think that if we don`t have a government people will be out of control, now that we have police, people think twice before doing something because they know that there will be consequences for their actions, however, if we had no government, people will be out of control and they will do things without thinking twice about what they will do and they will just do it, as a result, this world will be chaotic and people will be murdering and stealing each other.

It is possible but dangerous living without a government is like living in the jungle but its possible everything is possible but people think differently people would be living in their own bubble in their own community people wouldn't talk any language because there would be no school everything would be messed up and everybody would be fighting for its life, it would be like the hunger games but the only difference is that it wouldn't be a game anymore but our everyday life!!!!!!!!
