I think that unless the depth of coruption is really exposed people will joggle along. I noticed that when it was put that the minimum wage here - set by our government of elitists - should be £19 per hour there were so many utterly brainwashed people crying Oh it would ruin business and where would it come from, yet they don't understand that the elite are richer by huge jumps at a time. This purely because they are helping themselves, with government aid,to the majority of the money this country earns.
I think unless people examine their brainwashed idea about accepting what we are told, and incidentially - someone yesterday on the news said that there were more cuts to come in Britain and no one batted an eyelid! - in britain where everything is run of the tightest shoe-string, unless of course one of the elite want some grant or other or banks needs dish etc. Its time we woke up and didn't accept cuts that have crippled our welfare system which people worked damn hard to put into place. We should be demanding much higher taxes of the elite and their extravagances. I am sure with a set of shears I could get to work pretty quickly to make a difference.

That's an interesting idea. But not exactly the anarchist's view that your title suggests.
Religious folks say (some of them, anyway) that we are now experiencing the "kingdom age," so why not do as you suggest, and divide us into groups of like minds….
Although, I could suggest, also, that this is a simulation, and if it is, then they've already done that, to some degree.
It was or is the foundation of reasoning for simulation, to cut down on the functional disagreement about everything, and separate, to provide for more peace. If that was the reasoning, and we are living the outcome, I don't know that it's worked. But then, it's difficult to determine if what we are told in the news is really happening. This is very important, as this is the only way people know in one location what is transpiring elsewhere. If we are told varying things to different degrees, then we can't know and react in an appropriate manner, or do anything in response that makes sense, really.
Anyway, I think you have an interesting idea, there.

Great idea, I agree that being around like minded people and live let live as it were would be great but that's purity much what we do now, we just don't have these "kingdoms".
I'm not sure we as a nation could get much more divided with out a civil war.
Back to your OP, the kingdoms would reflect the responsibility and hard work its people produced, which would mean there would be kingdoms full of non producers that would want the producing kingdoms to provide for them, so your right back to where we are now... but still a great idea.
