Thanks for the clarificiation

I am heartened to see that you realize what most people here, wedded to their principles do not: That it is all speculation. And if you believe your speculation is more rightly founded, I believe mine is.

While I agree with you that Anarchy is a noble ideal to strive for, it is idealistic and unrealistic to think that it will ever be achieved.

If, as you say, eternal vigilance cannot and never will exist, then Anarchy too is impossible, for it also would require eternal vigilance. And for that reason, anarchy will always devolve to tyranny.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
