Essentially it's the same way with the government.
The government has taken "might makes right" and moved it to levels where the person has no chance of defending himself against it or changing it to work in his favor.
The government have monopolized might makes right.
As long as you're with the mob it's fine. Take a step outside of the mob and you see the cage around you.

In natural law based society or anarchy, it is controlled by power, conflicts, amount of money and chance, with public and legal opinion being of low importance.
It's organized crime running off of mob-rule support and extorted property.
Mob rule, might makes right, can happen with or without a government.
Having the government just makes it okay.
So to fix this lawlessness the answer is more lawlessness?
Yep. I'll do it without the bloody labels and selfish superiority complexes though. The greatest benefit is that I don't associate with those that choose to use the label "anarchist" anymore. In fact, the "anarchist" label has become something of a red flag for me...warning me of impending idiocy and immaturity....
What is capitalism?
Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned. Under capitalism the state is separated from economics (production and trade), just like the state is separated from religion. Capitalism is the system of of laissez faire. It is the system of political freedom. www.capitalism.org...
