Guest Commentary… Anarchy: Truth or Fantasy

Guest commentary again and this week we have a topic that I think will spur some interesting conversations. Many of you have had your debates with Black Flag and Kent and others who espouse a form of anarchy. I have come to understand the difference between what they mean when they say it and what is accepted as fact in popular culture. They are two very different things. Even understanding that difference, I still sometimes find myself skeptical as to whether it can work. I remain, however, open to learning and understanding even better than I do already. I like the idea, in principle, if not in practice yet. This week we have a guest article from none other than Jon Smith. He has already posted this article on his site, and the debate began a bit there. I believe he will be moving some of that discussion over here as well. I encourage everyone to take the time, now, while it is a main article topic, to press BF and others on this concept. But do so with an open mind, one at peace with the idea of learning something new. I am not yet convinced that a world without government at all would work, so I will be learning too…
