A bullshit idea that revolves around the idea of no government. This idea also suggests that everyone in a community should work together for the better of the community, which will not happen because some people are selfish and most will not enjoy this way of living. This idea is mostly used by punks who think believing in anarchy is rebellious when most of them do not know anything about anarchy or believe in it because their friends do.

A form of non-government where each individual rules their own self and anyone else they can beat into submission.

A thing which, even if it were desirable, would be impossible. There will always be a group of people who are willing to organise themselves and fight for government. They will either kick our asses into submission to a worse from of government, or we will have to organise ourselves, and fight back, meaning that when the conflict is over we'll be left with a government which we'll probably end up keeping by choice, or they'll decide they like having power an force us into it.
Government is no different to anarchy, because government is, in rrality, just a group of people imposing their will on us, so any type of organisation will evolve into a government.

Anarchy is a theoretical form of self-government which is practically unattainable. Historically Anarchy only exists between the shifts between other known forms of government, and it is in fact no government. There are two types of Anarchists: punk rockers, and romantic political philosophers.

The main argument of anarchistic thought is that any appointed, hereditary, or aristocratic government is coersive in nature, and coersion is intrinsically evil. Therefore, all government is inherently evil. The only solution to eliminate coersion in society is to live in the state of anarchy.
The main flaw of this argument is that in order to completely eliminate coersion even in a system of direct democracy there cannot be majority rule, that is the whole society has to unanimously agree on all issues. This is not a practical solution, but a theoretical state of perfect unanimity which is an extreme condition only possible in theory, an utopia.
A state under Anarchy is either a state ruled completely and unanimously by all the people for the people, or a state in civil war.
