I was about to give this topic a very wide berth…
But I have to ask… can you back up such a strong claim with evidence and professionally trusted sources?
I’d like to drop this quote in, though.
If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary
If we were a society that could be trusted to function in a utopian, anarchist society without someone taking advantage of the power vacuum, then we’d already be in one. Humans are, by nature, greedy and selfish individuals. If you succeed in eliminating rule by external forces (read: government), the natural course would inevitably lead to someone finding a way to establish control over others by force (read: dictatorial government).
I’d also like to present that in almost all cases where the rule of law is not present, outside of small and closely knit communities, the result is not true anarchy; the result is the strong prey on the weak.
EDIT: technically, I’ve not researched this claim. So its probably imprudent of me to claim this. However, I know of no non-trivial case where peace as general consensus of behavior is achieved outside the context of some form of external force. If you could present me a non-trivial case (e.g., an existing anarchic society that has last at least two generations with a population above one thousand, without abandoning anarchy) then I would be more willing to take you seriously. But as is, the logistics of human nature seem to preclude the possibility of this occurring.
The purpose of democracies and even feudal systems is to provide protection for the weak. Does it often fail at that purpose? Yes. Can it be corrupted? Of course. All human institutions are prone to human greed and selfishness. An unenforceable anarchy is doomed to be destroyed from the inside. An enforced anarchy is a government, and consequently not anarchy.
