More on anarchy

I think anarchism is the natural state; a state that allows all things and generally results in the strong oppressing the weak. Anarchy is actually reality. What we can do as humans is seek to establish fictions on top of reality that serve our purposes.

If you’re strong and wealthy then you seek to establish a fiction that maintains your position. This would be an anti-anarchic propaganda because you don’t want the people you are standing on to realize that your position is up for grabs.

Anarchy is the starting point; the natural state if you will. I think as humans we can (and all of our most esteemed acheivements have (medicine, technology etc)) supercede nature.

I think we should supercede anarchy in favor of a state that allows the most people the most freedom; allows them to pursue what interests and builds them.

But alas I think the best we can do is to bring a brief respite from anarchy every now and then until it inevitably re-establishes itself. Because anarchy is reality and all political/moral systems are fictions that anarchy allows to thrive for a bit until something more powerful comes along.
