fascism IS mighty fine and funky, i must say. it's lifted many nations from poverty and obscurity up to respectable, wealthy, and powerful. but then they fall and fall hard. like germany did after world war 2, because of that wacky hitler.

but still, if you could harness fascism's power up to the good part and then someone had a political coup, everything would be hunky dorey. maybe.

i still vote for social democracy. it's like communism lite! only 1/3 the calories of normal communism!
whoever said "money can't buy happiness" was never poor.
I think there's something innately wrong about most people to inspire alien curiousity.

Democracy is alright, but it sure has a lot of downfalls. I don't like many of the rest of the choices, so I am going to go with Anarchy. Anarchy I think is almost true freedom, The Religious Lead governments I think are horrid as lets say the whole country is forced to be catholic, and it will be led by catholic beliefs, or whatever other religon(s) the leader is. Anarchy, although seemingly chaotic would work out, because the strong people would try and lead, then be overtaken by the smart people, then reverse and do it again. Complete peace is boring, and the world will be in anarchy someday, the day when democracy fails. Anarchy would grant us a more healthy enviroment, as we wouldn't be dependent on lets say coal, many would use the land and whatever power source was availible, probably solar wind or water. Go Anarchy!  grin2.gif

No. Anarchy is not a utopia, a "perfect" society. It will be a human society, with all the problems, hopes, and fears associated with human beings. Anarchists do not think that human beings need to be "perfect" for anarchy to work. They only need to be free.


I love that, its everything I'm trying to say  grin2.gif
The closest thing we can get to Utopia is actually Distopia, since the only logical way to get Utopia is Communism. With anarchy someone can live a calm, happy life by doing something to make a living that wouldn't come close to working today, like art, weaving baskets, ETC.  thumbsup.gif

Exactly.  Except no one would try to take over.  Anarchy is not chaos.

OF course it's not, except as you said, humans are not perfect. A good portion of the world would learn to cope with their differences and live with eachother with out a leadership, but a chosen few would always be there to do something bad or we would have a utopia, and anarchy cannot be utopia.

Yes there would be a few, but they would be a very small minority.  Especially after the first generation anarchists had passed.  The second generation anarchist would never have experience hate or prejudice, so there would only be a few who would even consider rebellion.  These would be people who just want to rebel for no real reason.

This thread has totally changed my view in just a few minutes!  grin2.gif

I like the idea of Anarchy now, not think it is lame, because it is actually extremely logical.
