Comment: you misunderstand

(See in situ)

you misunderstand

I believe HWR was making one, or both, of these points.

1) In your everyday life, you are in a state of anarchy with respect to your social life. When you go out to dinner with your friends, there is no ruler that can force others to do things they don't want to do.

2) The governments of countries are in a state of anarchy with respect to each other. There is currently no overseeing world government (the UN has no real enforcement authority).
