Anarchism is total freedom and equality. It is literally "without arkhos", or without leaders or rulers. The Ukrainian Free Territory and Catalonia in the Spanish Civil War are great examples of anarchist societies.
@MechVarg There will always be a form of hierarchy, we're apes for goodness sake. Trying to prevent that is just as bad as trying to prevent innovation. The closes we'll come to anarchy is when we become hive minded.
@MechVarg Thus countries the US supports would collapse or be in ruin, etc. Also the US Wouldn't be able to trade with any other country properly. Secondly there would be know laws in place to settle disputes and thus there would be a large death toll. America would stop progressing and it would most likely get invaded.
@no* There's no reason why said countries couldn't become self-sufficient. Order would be kept in place by communities. There'd really be no reason for crime since people would get the full product of their labor or have their needs met by the community. The people can take up arms against invaders. Stop progressing? There is no reason it would stop progressing.
@MechVarg You do realize no currency means no currency. There will be no reword for working. You know how much oil your country would loss. Millions of your people would die if it became self-sufficient. America holds about 350 million people.
@reece WHY, DAMMIT? Why else would they be working? To stay alive and have a good life, of course. WHY would disease sweep the nation. Didn't happen ANYWHERE where anarchy was established. Not in Ukraine, not Spain, not Paris.
