Anarchy Is Simply A Means To An End.
Anarchy from the point of view of a modern community IS lawlessness only because “modern” societies have accepted the illusion that only a “government” can establish “law”. There is ALWAYS “law” but human ignorance would lead us to believe that since there is no “government” there can be no “law”. Nature itself is a “governing body” and has established her own “law”. Therefore, Anarchy is NOT “lawlessness”. There is still “law”. It is simply derived from a “natural” set of “rules”.
However, Anarchy as a form of “society management” is not sustainable. It can not effectively “manage a community” simply because as human being we are constantly plagued by emotional handicaps such as “greed”. So Anarchy can not exist for any extended length of time. But it DOES make for an excellent temporary system of evolution from one form of government to another.
Once you accomplish Anarchy then the process of organization inevitably begins. By human nature there are naturally leaders, and followers. And the “followers” will naturally look to the “leaders” for support, direction, and protection, because they themselves are incapable of providing these things for themselves. So the weak will submit their “dependence” on the strong. As this progress continues through time the “leaders” become overwhelmed with the demands of the followers.
Followers, as a result, then become arrogant, greedy, and discontent. Blinded by their “dependence”, they are no longer aware of the “needs” that they have never been required to provide. This ignorance proliferates into greed, and their requirements of the “leaders” become corrupted with WANTS instead of NEEDS. Because of this arrogance, they utilize the assistance of the “majority” (whom are naturally “followers” as well), and establish “themselves” as the “leaders”. Thereby, assuming control over the “majority” that assisted them. And thus, in their own ignorance, the “majority”, has assisted one into power over them, whom which has no idea how to provide, support, directions, or protection, for the “majority”.
Then to secure their new “position” they proceed to alienate the true “leaders” so that the “position” they have usurped will not be threatened. Then define this rancid attack on the integrity of the true “leaders” as “leadership” and “change”. This will go on until the “new” “establish society” collapses from a collection of leadership deficiency, fiscal irresponsibility, organizational degradation, and intellectual depravity. Understandably followed by the impending Anarchy that will start the whole process over again. After all in truth, a revolution, is simply Anarchy.
All of the great civilizations through history have survived for about 200-300 years. During those years these civilizations have all progressed through the same pattern of existence:
