Darn right it's the answer. One problem, never happen unless a group of selected individuals got together and made it happen within their own group.
To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically. - Henry David Thoreau

I second that, SeekerForTruth. Notable is your desciption "within their own group."

Until we humans evolve beyond our tribal instincts, any form of anarchism is unlikely. Whether we <i>can</i> get beyond tribalism is another question.

"False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

Dammit! I just finished putting my "buddy Jesus" statue on it's pedestal. Does this mean I have to start all over again?

This is for you, tenative.

Seeker, all you got to do is make it happen for you, everybody else will join in when they see that the powermongers don't squish you like a bug. Until then, you just gotta take your chances, I do.

I can't tell, Hermes, they've had alot of years, and little success.

I'm open to suggestions, xanderman. Without dreams there is only this.

Yes, impenitent, self power.

I apologize for my flip response. Just having a moment of irreverent fun.

The Achilles heel of anarchy is, that as a sytem, it only works when there is less than two people. Occasionally, cooperation between two anarchists is possible. Chance score suggest's that, but if there is any difference of opinion, then one must acquiesce to the other (in order to proceed together) and that is denial of anarchical sovereignty. In my society of one I am the quintessential anarchist. As soon as I step out the front door.....

This actually reminds me of something. Why the hell do governments act as a voice for anyone? I think of them more as supervisors of the people so conflicts are minimal and technology and comfort can advance but not as my voice really. I don't mind the concept of police protecting (though they do a poor job). I love government funded services for the people like repairing roads and that jazz but the rest is just... eh.

I read "pay the dictator of the neighbours"
that would make no sense though.
