What exactly is this situation known as Anarchy and how dangerous is it? Parents often say it’s having more than 3 kids running around the house at any one time! It also has been said that one person’s anarchy is another’s patriot revolution.
Anarchy is defined in the dictionary as (1) A situation where there is chaos in a complete absence of organization or control, (2) A breakdown in society where there is an absence of any formal system of government or authority.
So what does that mean for people who want to prepare for such an event and come out of it unscathed?
The formal definition doesn’t mention the violent destruction aspect to any extent. Probably because this is taken for granted in such a social circumstance where there is supposedly no longer authoritative law and human behavior is uncontrollable.
But one thing is for sure. In an all-encompassing social breakdown, anarchy will become a part of everybody’s new ‘life style’, in one form or another.
Anarchy or Mob Riots?
First let’s examine more of a real time definition of the types of ‘anarchy’ that most people might be exposed to in the uncertain future. It will not resemble the ‘zombie’ movie versions that much and will likely be worse in some circumstances. Complete disregard for people’s lives and property will be demonstrated in all manner of so-called anarchy after the escalation of violence.
The rule of egalitarian law and order exists mainly to prevent the dark side of human nature from taking control of society. When lawful authoritative social control is virtually gone, the void is invariably filled by dangerous unrestricted malevolence. It’s part of human nature and amounts to nothing less than pervasive criminal activity.
