Of all the different political philosophies, none is more misunderstood and misrepresented than Anarchy. From many debates I've both heard and engaged in with different people, it has become clear to me that most people are completely ignorant of what Anarchy really is. People think Anarchy is chaos, they think it is a society without rules, there are even some very unintelligent members of society who seem to think Anarchists are the same as Fascists, but in reality Anarchy is the most ideal form of society. Anarchy is not a society without rules, it is a society without RULERS. It is a society without hierarchy; everyone is on the same level and the society is governed by voluntary participation and mutual cooperation.
Anarchism advocates the existence of a society without ruling bodies and figure heads; which means no kings, emperors, dictators, or presidents, and frankly in this day in age with the growing advancements in technology that we presently have they are an antiquated governing system anyway. The only real reason we needed a Congress and a president when this country was first formed was that it was not possible to get every member of our society together to discuss important issues and vote, so we elected representatives to represent our respective towns, cities, counties, and states, but now that we have this marvelous thing called the internet which is able to connect people all around the world there really isn't too great a need for fraudulent representatives who do more to represent their wallets and ignore the will of the people who elected them. Another important principal of Anarchy is Voluntarism, which is the idea that people willfully choose to participate and help out in society as opposed to be told to by some corrupt ruling class. Foolish Statists often question who will build and maintain the roads, run the schools, fund the hospitals, and defend our borders in the absence of a central government, and the answer Anarchy offers is those who willfully choose to do so by the virtue of their own free will.
Everyone is forced by necessity of life to take responsibility for him or herself. Of course Anarchy is also the most difficult form of society to achieve because people must learn to put what's good for the whole before their own personal wants and biases. People must learn to respect each others rights and freedoms, and truly live up to "The Golden Rule", to do unto others as they would have done unto them. It is because Anarchy is difficult and because people are naturally inclined to be egotistic and bias that people demonize Anarchy as bad, but nothing truly good ever comes easy. I personally sit on the bridge between Libertarianism and Anarchy.
I see Anarchy as the ideal that must be ultimately striven for, and Libertarianism as the path to getting there, and it is for that reason that I attempt to promote Anarchy and viciously smack down the falsehoods which have been spread about by the power-mad and the ignorant to blemish its ideals.
