Of course not.
In 1930 there were all sorts of statements about how it was "all under control" and "prosperity was returning." Some examples of the 1929 and 1930 idiocy:
"Financial storm definitely passed." - Bernard Baruch, cablegram to Winston Churchill, November 15, 1929
"I see nothing in the present situation that is either menacing or warrants pessimism... I have every confidence that there will be a revival of activity in the spring, and that during this coming year the country will make steady progress." - Andrew W. Mellon, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury December 31, 1929
"I am convinced that through these measures we have reestablished confidence." - Herbert Hoover, December 1929
"[1930 will be] a splendid employment year." - U.S. Dept. of Labor, New Year's Forecast, December 1929
"For the immediate future, at least, the outlook (stocks) is bright." - Irving Fisher, Ph.D. in Economics, in early 1930

who says experts cant or dont lie, that is an ignorant stupid statement.
even simple people like us here on ATS i think can figure out that this feels eerily like 1931. the rise of the right, economic collapse on the brink of fruitation, countries aligning with one another against another group of countries... lines are being drawn, financial collapse is in progress, is world war inevitable??

Anarchy is not the power of the people.. it is the power of the able, it is the ultimate Totalitarianism .. if there are no unity, laws or structure.. the strongest one will create it.
Libertarianism is the smallest functioning form of Government.. because government it's self isn't evil, in fact it is the guiding force of Humanity.. it's people in Government that are evil .. the less people in government, the smaller it is, the better it serves us.
Close to anarchy.. just without the wild pillaging, raping, looting and all that fun stuff.
Yes. people are animals.
But that does not mean Anarchy is a bad thing. People are.
Anarchy doesn't mean no unity, laws or structure. It means no government.
