What a retard. Anarchy is the opposite of government. He is thinking of Nihalism. Government is the worst but really.

    He did not clarify what he was really thinking. God established government; the best being a Theocracy. After that, a government run by righteous men is good, but once a people vote in unrighteous men, government becomes a burden on the people, and eventually their master.

     -- jordan, seattle, wa

     -- Religion is foolish, Planet Earth     
    brilliant man!
     -- god, heaven     
    Read your history books and you will learn this statement to be true. Government may start with good intent, but always ends in a power struggle to impose unjust, and oppressive laws on its people. The true road to individual liberities and freedoms is anarchy!
