Here's one reason I'm not convinced on Anarchy.
The current gangs, the remnants of the collapsed military, and other organizations will run riot, and basically turn it into a tyranny situation. You
may be happy in your little world growing your own food, living a nice life not being hassled by the government, until one of these groups finds out
about you, and comes and takes all your food and land.
Now you could argue that you will have your guns to defend yourself, but you and your gun will be no match against an out of work group of corrupt
ex-cops with all their numbers, armor, and better weapons.
You may be able to get around this a little, by forming with your neighbours to form your own defensive gang, but not everyone will have this
opportunity, and there will always be a more powerful gang out there.
It would be like a civil war but with thousands or millions of sides.
Anarchy kind of sounds nice in a way, but to me it has too many flaws like this. Some organized systems like university's and health services work
better when everyone works together. Progress in many areas will be stifled otherwise.
Maybe someday in the future, if humans evolve to a better type of animal, it will be possible in someway, but for now the flawed democracy idea is the
best we have.
