Do you think it's possible to live in a organized society that doesn't have a government? And why?
I can't remeber when I lost faith in our current system, it's been a while for sure. Year after year is getting more clearer to me that we need radical changes in the way we live. We need to evolve in manners to evolve in consciousness.
The government that should, theoretically, protect and provide for the population are often caught protecting and providing for large coorporations while restricting the power and liberties of the people.
I don't believe that any politician could bring real change to our lifes(for the better), most of them say they would but what they really do is get richer and richer. The really rare and spare people that try to change it are marginalized by the mainstream media, and because of the poor education(made poorly by choice of those who wants to perpetuate power) most of the people sits by and watches.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't lost faith in humanity, only in the system. I think government it's the biggest weapon of all times, and only a few have the right to use it, and most of the time they use it against the population.
Until now, with knowlodge I found on my humble research, I'm inclined to believe that only a anarchist society could break our chains and set us free for real. But anarchism is a strong word, many will associete it with chaos. But it isn't! It's just voluntarism!
Anarchism is free people contributing with free people to do what they judge best for them selves, their family and their friends.
"Oh, but without the goverment and the police who would protect us from bad people?", one could ask. So let me say: the biggest and baddest organized crime that exists in plain sight is the government and it uses cops as it's gun.
In my view, any country that allows alchool consumption but doesn't allow marijuana or any other "drug" is, besides hypocrite, not free at all. If an adult can't decide for his self what to do with his own consciousness, he isn't free.
Another example: You mom calls you sick and sounding really in trouble, you get your car and go the fastest you can to her... but the fastest you can is not always allowed by the government. So you could actually be stopped by the police and even go to jail because you're trying to reach your mother.
I know there's always some bad people that will try anything to get it easy for them, and we can't change that. Some still believe that we need government and police to protect us from those people, but we really don't. In fact it's way worse when those bad people are in positions of power, that they crave for.
Keeping it "short", I belive so much in humanity that I believe we could live way better, in reall harmony with us and the nature, without anyone that rules over us. I believe that are lots more good hearted than genually bad people. The real problem I see, is that good hearted people not always stand up for them, and for others, because of fear of repression, and even aggression, from the police and the government.
I'm from Brazil but I think this vision could be applyed in many, if not all, countries in the world.
Just one more tought: I think the good people in a anarchist society could be really effiecient in working togheter assited by an Open Source Society Colaboration Software =)
So, what do you think?
