Let's just get one thing straight here. According to my dictionary, anarchism is: "the political theory that individual freedom should be absolute and that all government and law is evil. Capitalism and private property would be abolished and be replaced by voluntary cooperation."

Anarchist is defined as: "Someone who believes in in anarchism, a terrorist".
Now do you agree with that? Based on what that says, I would say that anarchy is bad. I would not want to live in a society without laws. Of course, I would not want to live somewhere where unfair laws exist either(ie:communist countries)
Yes Flint, I think it would be nice to live in a society where laws weren't needed, where people treat everyone as they would like to be treated and where everyone loved there fellow human being as much as, or more than, themselves (as the Bible commands). However, this world is far from perfect. There are people who murder, rape, steal etc... and there are good people who sometimes do dumb things that causes harm to others, and I'm sure you would agree with that. And that is why we need laws.

McSpotlight: Your dictionary is wrong. Which one are you using? (there is *absolutely* nothing in the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) or the Collin's dictionary that equates anarchism with terrorism; such a usage would be incorrect).
