Anarchy: Idyllic Yet Unrealistic

Posted on November 30, 2006 by D' MacKinnon

Anarchy, a society where there are no rulers. Order is maintained by agreements between tribes and men but no government rules. A lot of people mistake chaos for anarchy but they are separate ideas. Chaos is disorder, anarchy is order by self-regulation. Anarchy as a political system means no wars, no oppression, no classism. Without a rulers and capitalism, man cannot pay man to do his killing for him.
While the dream of anarchy as a political system seems peachy, we’ll never see it happen. The problem with anarchy and other political structures such as socialism is that humans are inherently weak creatures. They need people to tell them what to do, they need rulers. If we were to overthrow our current government today and replace it with an anarchistic system we’d eventually evolve back into an organized government. It may take one hundred years, it make take ten but it will happen. People don’t want to deal with the pressure of not having that security blanket. They want someone to play that paternal figure, corrupt or not. Human beings for the most part are unintelligent and without original thought. Do you think the average person knows how to hunt for their own food, how to make their own clothes? The circle of capitalism and government rule will always come back into existence because the general public is too apathetic.
Anarchy is a beautiful dream but wholly unrealistic. Do I suggest giving up and accepting the ruling class? No! Revolution, even on a small scale is still a worthwhile pursuit. Think for yourself, be yourself, educate yourself. The chains of ignorance are the true bonds of slavery, intellect will set you free.
