Anarchy means that everyone does whatever they want, whenever they
want. That is a sure-fire recipie for pandemonium. Without rules that
everyone can agree to, people do whatever they want without regard
for the other person.

Anarchy always leads to violence. It is where the people don't govern
themselves because they are without a *govern*ment and no agreed upon
moral code. Any form of government is better than anarchy.
