there are many corrupt governments in the world today

and as far as I know we blame the governments

I do not believe that people should blame the government. Maybe yes, but not entirely.
First of all, who voted these officials? Is it not the people themselves? Why do they do this? Because of poverty? Because they have no knowledge? Because the officials bribe them? Most in power take advantage of what is there to be taken advantage of. Most allow themselves to be ruined by hell, so what do we really have now?
Everyone has a duty - to find a way to learn, to do what is good, and fight for the right. What we need is not a change in the government or in the world, but to the people of the world. Moral revolution is what the we all need.

LOL this is a joke right? The governments we formed today are because of governments such as monarchy's, anarchy's and such, bringing us back into worse governments will only...well show how often people taken one step forward, and two steps back.

I don't think that would work very well in the U.S because of the whole republicans vs democrats thing going on. No one would be able to unite for a common cause because of this division. Even if the government were overthrown somehow, the people would be divided into these two sides and no sort of order could be established because of all the opposing views. And of course, it's hard for many of us Americans to just show common decency towards one another, and we'd probably all kill each other without laws to keep us under control.

I don't know much about any other major nations.

No. Anarchy doesn't fix anything. It never completely has fixed anything. Sure you made your point, but the expense of others that might have followed you.

No, while the goverment may create problems, anarchy is worse. Many people, having little fear of goverment retribution would take things way out of hand and do stuff they normally wouldn't.

anarchy is not a solution. there has never been a successful anarchist state. it either gets conquered (spain, paris, etc.) or defaults to dictatorship (cuba). besides that, humans are tribal creatures and would eventually start cutting out pieces of land for themselves anyways.

i think that there should be more laws monitoring our politicians, restricting where they recieve funds, and having campaigns publicly funded (as in no one is allowed to donate to a campaign whatsoever. a new tax would be created that forms a campaign fund for politicians on a state and federal level). there should also be laws making it easier to remove public servants

My parent probably thinks so. One of my parents claims to be an Anarchist. I just laugh about that. I have no clue about the other parent, my house isn't really that into politics. But as for my view, I don't really think it(Anarchy) would. There would be chaos and no structure, and we are partly to blame for electing them. Like in CA where I live, I bet they voted in Arnold since he's a movie guy and people think he's 'cool', but then I heard nonstop complaining. They shouldn't have voted for him then, should they have?

anarchy??
sounds like Coup d'état to me
it will only work though if the masses joins your attempt to overthrow the goverment
anyway the people are partly to blame beacuse they are the ones who elected the goverment officials

There is an irrational assumption here that all governments are modeled after the example of the United States.
Posted 6/16/08
The government represents us. Does that say anything? If there is anyone to blame it is the people who elect those people on. Anarchy solves nothing. In each society there is a need of some kind of government. That is part of what it means to be a civilization. Without government or any source of control over a large population, there will be conflict and tons of it.

How so? There is no absolute anarchy considering that we, humans, tend to organize ourselves and that it's inevitable that a superior being would rise and appoint himself a leader. Then the cycle would go on again.

It would be really chaotic and I doubt would be beneficial.

anarchy means no clean water, no electricity, no food in grocery stores, no gas, no functioning law and order, no functioning social institutions, and all elements of civilized life goes down the toilet.

I don't know about you but I want my toilet to flush.

Violence and chaos are answers to government problems >.>

I think that movies like V for Vendetta glamorized the idea but that doesn't mean it's a good idea
