Laws, governments, societies - these things do not inhibit freedom. All they do is establish consequences for certain actions.

But you've also missed the point that the laws of physics & life in general imposes it's own consequences on a person's actions.
Law is *supposed* to promote justice between people, but the current law structure is too large & unwieldy to do so...What is needed is not anarchy, but a serious down-sizing of what already exists. The government is too big & they even place themselves above the laws that they create for everyone else...The law structure is too large & complex for *anyone* to understand all of it. Anarchy no, but "simplification" wouldn't hurt anyone...
Except those who've made their very existance *depend* on the complexities that they can't even fully embrace.
