  • Democracy and the state are incompatible with human rights.

    Your rights pre-exist the state, And they're not up to a vote. If a band of thieves vote to take your car, Allowing you to vote as well, It's still a robbery for this very reason.

    The idea that other people can decide for you what you can say, Who you can pray to, What you put in your body, Who you associate and do business with or whom you can marry, Just because they voted for it is absolutely asinine.
    The desire for a state stems from a fundamental contempt for humanity, That without the violent coercion of an elite class who have special rights to rule over you, Humanity would devolve into chaos and war, And we would be ruled by criminals and warlords. Pot, Meet kettle. The best arguments against anarchism are inevitably descriptions of the status quo.

    We feel perfectly safe in a dark cinema full of people, But terrified of a dark alleyway. The most dangerous places are specifically areas under state "protection".
    A car accident involving two people with two different insurance companies gets resolved between the insurance companies before the case ever goes to court, But a dispute between two states can drag on for decades.
    Somehow, Private citizens have figured out conflict resolution between diverse parties that the criminal gang called the state still struggles with even in the simplest cases.

    In many ways, We already very much live under a state of political anarchy. Nobody tells us what to do with our lives, We walk among people and resolve conflicts such as who goes through a door first, And form lines in front of cashiers without an authority forcing us to do so. Even in online video games, Spontaneous orderly behavior naturally emerges. In the online game The Division, Players couldn't interact with a teller at the same time, So they formed an orderly line, Without force of authority or threats of punishment.

    Humanity has a tremendous capacity to spontaneously form orderly societies without coercive action so long as we share fundamental values, And the coercive, Violent and brutish force of the state only serves to impose its own, Unnatural order that disperses the natural order that preexisted it.

  • Just my opinion

    Frankly, I believe Anarchy could be better than modern democracies. I've always been a left-wing anarchist since the government is easily corrupted. People argue that in anarchy there is no protection, But band together with some other people, Grab some weapons and you're good to go. That's just my opinion, Though.

  • Democracy is the worst form of government, Besides all the others. . .

    The modern democracy ensures that every person is represented in some sort of way, Whether it'd be through some kind of parliament or local district body. We have this because not everyone wants to rule - there're ones who do and those who follow.
    However, There also are a lot of safety measures which prevent one individual from having too much power and using that power in a way that majority doesn't want, In other words - being tyrannical.
    Another thing is elections. It's the best way we have these days to ensure a stable succession from one ruler to another.
    These measures that democracy has ensure country's stability which is the most important thing for any country.

    Anarchy has no such measures set and applying such ideology in a real world would be like building a house of cards in a middle of an earthquake when every single card is a person. Perhaps it may be possible to stack 2 for couple seconds, But when you have millions of people to deal with - no chance.

  • I guess not

    So anarchy is no government. That means the laws and rules are made by each individual person and can come into conflict with other people’s own laws, Rules and what they think is right which can cause fighting and violence which can escalate and then anarchy is not better than democracy.

  • Anarchy is not possible

    Pure anarchy is where there are no rules. I can do what I want and I can commit all manner of crimes and do my every dark whim.
    Your counter argument is to have a community or band of people with weapons to ensure the peace. That the same thing as a government.

    And I guarantee you that within that group there will fights over order. Whose turn is it to be in perimeter patrol who will do the cleaning cooking. Who has to farm, Or do the grunt work. And who is the one to whip the slaves. Who does the rat roadkill belong to? You will have to have a leader. Then after that there will be someone who lust for power and an internal power struggle. Rules and more rules later and you will have a government. Towns to cities to states to nations.

    Its what humans do. They need a leader and they need some order, But then power hungry people who have a way over the simple minded come.
    People are very weak minded and they will always listen to the strongest one, Or the most charismatic person. You might not like authority but the majority of people do and the best you can hope for is a democracy where your voice can be counted.
