An excellent question. I've enjoyed reading the responses, thoroughly. Especially
I went three ways with this. The first, is that we at ATS know we're a bunch of crackpot conspiracy theorists, but we get to look at the mundane
world as outsiders, and consider objectively what the majority of the population believes. Normalcy, I guess would be the word? And of course we
have the truly off-the-wall, out-in-left-field conspiracy theorists that believe with every ounce of their soul that the Universe was hatched from an
egg. So I've included Normalcy, Insanity, and Somewhere In Between theories as to what could cause Anarchy.
First, for those of you who argue that Anarchy is the wrong word, I disagree. It isn't likely that a sustained anarchical system would succeed, but
anarchy is a possible outcome. Consider, for the purposes of this post, a REBOOT of the current political, economic, and social systems of the world.
For just a split second, anarchy could reign, reset the world to pattern-zero, then allow us to rebuild the system correctly.
1. Normalcy: In games of intrigue, the Superpower Governments of the planet have plotted together to subjugate, dominate, and relegate third world
countries into the realm of hopelessness to keep the current top-level politicians in power and wealthy. It turns out that the top tiers of all of
these governments have been on friendly terms the last three hundred years and discuss their own actions as if they were actors in a play.
TL;DR: The world has suffered greatly and TPTB have not only allowed it, but manipulated it into being when it didn't have to be... for their own
2. In-Between. The Above Scenario, but the Director of the Play is revealed as Illuminati, Rothschilds, Bankers, one of the Bushes, or possibly a
supposed dead leader of the world.
3. Insanity: The First and Second Scenarios, but the Director is a slice of cheescake. Or possibly Elvis.
I've considered Doomsday, a meteor, the 'UFO phenomenon' around the sun that are being discussed at-length on the forums. But at the end of all of
that, unity would be our champion and savior. Anarchy would be the one thing that wouldn't occur. Together, we can find a way.
In order for Anarchy to occur, the people would have to be enraged to the point of planet-wide rebellion. It's that simple.
