According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first quoted usage of the term “anarchy” occurred in 1552. The Dictionary defines anarchy as: “absence of government; a state of lawlessness due to the absence of the supreme judicial power; political disorder.”
In 1850, a new interpretation of the word occurred, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, and the concept was defined with greater precision: “A social state in which there is no governing person or group of persons, but each individual has absolute liberty (without the implication of disorder).”
