Anarchy would NOT be good for most people. Know why? I'll give you two big reasons ...
1 - Those who are ill or chronically ill. Anarchy means no medicines. No antibiotics. No insulin. No heart medications. No bloodpressure medications. No way to have operations. Women would die in childbirth. Chronically ill people (like me) would suffer insane pain. A simple tooth infection, that can be taken care of now by a root canal and antibiotics, would kill you if anarchy was going on.
2 - Financial collapse means most people in the USA would be beyond poor. Food production and delivery would stop. Nearly everyone would starve to death. Poor countries that depend on us for food and medicine - like in Africa - would be wiped clean of people. All dead.
Anarchy means MASSIVE numbers of dead.
There are 7 billion people on this planet now.
Almost all would die .. either of starvation, infection, freezing to death, or for lack of medical help.
Text Survival of the fittest. I agree. we are limping along the weaker ones, and its a drain on many. Truth hurts, yes. Im not saying to hell with medicine and dont try to save people. But the ones who cannot live without artificial intervention are not meant to still live. Sorry. I hate this saying but it is accurate: we have been playing 'god' for a while now with 'modern medical marvels'.

It says alot about how the modern world makes us impotent. Makes us feel imasculated. The modern world makes us paralysed. The themes seem to blame consumerism materialism and commercialism.
Text Second, anarchy NEVER stays anarchy for long because it creates a "power vacuum" and a dictator or other "control freak" eventually takes over. Out of chaos - ORDER. It's a cycle that can't be broken with the current state of humankind.

Text That is putting the cart before the horse. The persons who judge their self-worth by their buying power are the same persons with lack of confidence ... and confidence is something you ALLOW yourself to EARN and Possess.
Text First, survival of the fittest refers to the person who can procreate the most ... and has nothing to do with anarchy and it's correllary "survival of the morally weakest."

Real anarchy cannot exist because no matter what system we are in, whether it's capitalism, communism, socialism or whatnot...one essential role plays the exploitation of people for the gain of others. Whether it is for gain like financial gain (letting others work for you)....or simply for the reason "to have power over others".
Even in a hypothetical anarchic society, people will in some form micro-organize themselves with the result that ONE person will tell others what to do and when to do it...while one side will be the "sheeple" and the other side will be those who are in control. Because it's how humans work.
