The problem is crime and drugs. Capitilism perpetuates crime. Society based on competition creates crime.
No argument there, see above answer. But in a non consumer, competitve capital based society then gangs would be called cllective cooperative groups.
Yes a FEW, nothing is ever perfect or 100%. There will always be exceptions to the rule.
You don't think so eh? Read some real history and not holyweird Amerika won the war single handed BS.
Well the idea is not to disolve into Anarchy (at least not in the sence you're using the word) or better put disolve into chaos.
Again look at Spain, they did not disolve into chaos but worked very well collectively and cooperatvely.
Do you really think that government keeps scoiety from becoming chaotic?
Just look at the TV or read a paper, the World is full of chaos, war, death, suffering, exploitation of the weak and vunerable by the very powers that are suposedly keeping us from killing each other.
If you really look at Human nature and the way things are controlled, it's the control of government that keeps us all in a constant state of chaos and disorder in order to justify their existance. When people tire of government what do they do? They start wars, artificialy create crime, create artificial economic slumps etc...All to justify their existance.
And no I'm not so naive as to believe we could just do away with government overnight. I also don't believe revolution would work either. Situations like that usualy just replace one master with another.
No it takes education, de-conditioning, the realisation that we do have the power to control and govern our own lives.
What's the biggest hurdle to that goal? People not having any faith in the power of thyself! Go around saying it can't be done and it won't.
