anarchy no , as many people shouldn't be allowed to think for themselves.
So what is new? That's what TPTB want right now and have for a long
time. No one thinking for themselves wouldn't create a need for anarchy.
I know you said "some" but if the big dogs had their way totally, "none"
of us would be able to think for ourselves.
As far as anarchy goes, I believe it would turn into a highly lawless
society. You definitely would see gangs roaming the streets kicking in
doors and attacking people and stealing whatever they want without too
much worry. They only thing they would have to worry about is the
typical gun owner that won't put up with any of their crap. That is why
anyone who has a hate for guns, or are afraid of them, or have never
been around them and don't know much about them, should really think
over the possibility of buying at least a .22 calibre rifle with a few hundred
rounds of ammo and learn how to shoot it, and get over the fears.
Anarchy may indeed be a thing that will hit this country. I hope not. But I
know I am prepared for any of these thugs and it won't be a pretty sight.
Anarchy in my opinion will be a terrible mess. The only law abiding people
will be sort of like the law abiding people we have now. There won't be
much change. They will have to keep a constant watch over the criminal
element that will undoubtedly run amok everywhere trying to get what
they feel they have been cheated out of in life. They are the ones who
will be breaking the laws. I am going to be hunkered down if it happens.
Sorry, but anarchism is a theoretical form of government. By theoretical read unattainable.
There does not seem to be a commonly understood interpretation for what anarchism is, but in my book it is society without authority.
I am afraid that in human society there is authority, either explicitly, or implied through act and intent.
If you disagree then maybe you could - in your own words, and concisely - say what anarchy is from where you stand and (more importantly) how it could work in a society full of different people.

But spend an hour or two on these boards reading various threads where the contributors are some of the most open minded and free thinking individuals around will prove to you that we just aren't ready for it yet.
But isn't the "criminal elite" a "self-organizing element of society"?
