I enjoyed your article, however I must disagree on the definition of anarchy. I've always perceived anarchy as meaning "without government or leadership". I think the whole idea of not having a government or some kind of leader scares a lot of people. Especially the people that doubt themselves as having the potential to lead themselves or make their own decisions; or are fearful that their neighbors, or other individuals, in a world without government or some other higher power to subject individuals to the rule of law, would hurt them in some way (physically, psychologically, etc.). However, I also think most people's definition of anarchy is "complete chaos" and I do applaud you for trying to show people how wrong that definition is. There is such a thing as a peaceful anarchist.
If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
