Anarchy is yet another childish idealist philosophy that ignores human nature, i.e. that people are bastard coated bastards with bastard filling.

Any philosophy that entails "if we were all nice to each other we wouldn't need laws/government" fails on human nature.

You know why there are laws, why they evolved? To protect the weak from the strong. Yes, they are used the opposite way, but for fucks sake its better than nothing and hoping people won't be bastards.

@gedvondur If so, why is it that people in anarchist or anarchist societies (e.g. Rojava, Revolutionary Catalonia, Ukraine Free State, tribal societies) generally have to be forced with violence into joining/rejoining a state?

@TheoEsc @gedvondur same reason: people aren't all nice. If your anarchist society is prosperous enough, it doesn't exist in its own special universe. It's surrounded by those same people who at some point will become interested in consuming your society (especially if it's prosperous). This is why states with military forces survived any other way of organization: there are always non-nice people close by.
