We all want to be free to do whatever we please without government telling us what to do. (The word "govern" means "to limit.") So the idea of anarchy, total freedom, seems very appealing.
But anarchy means there is no rule of law, no one to protect the weak from the strong. Those with power will use it to gain more power, resulting in violent power struggles, and soon anarchy will cease to exist as the most powerful gain control over everything and everyone in a dictatorship. There is no alternative to this outcome.
The closest workable alternative to unlimited freedom is a Direct Democracy where every individual can personally vote on every policy enacted by the government which imposes limits on what individuals are allowed to do.
If you believe the occupy movement should support Direct Democracy as one of its objectives, you can make that known by clicking "like" below.
