@ Duk, That's what I was saying. The two states of society are government and conflict. The term 'anarchy' is sometimes used to describe the conflict stage and sometimes misapplied to describe simple quasi-utopian government. Since the term is thus both ambiguous and mostly incorrect, it would be wise to describe such situations in other ways.
No, no, no, no! You don't get to cherry pick the part of my post that you liked and pretend I'm agreeing with you.
What I said was, there is just as much evidence for the optimistic view of anarchy as there is for the pessimistic view. So, while the pessimists might say "the two states of society are government and conflict", the optimists might say "the two states of society are government and co-operation."
My conclusion was that it is a transition stage from one governmental era to another, but I did not lend any credence to the theory that the transition stage is necessarily evil.
Allah fucking a llama Duk, what is your problem??????
First of all what you call 'cooperation' is in fact, GOVERNMENT, thus it is NOT anarchy.
Secondly, don't use the word 'evil' unless you're making the joke. Hell, the closest thing to evil is a person who thinks something else is evil... and even that person is not 'evil' just stupid and/or douchey; for example, Sym.
