Systems like the Internet require cooperation on a very large scale.

I wouldn’t go so far as advocating full anarchy. I believe systems _do_ serve their functions for people yet I believe all systems that gather and process humans are flawed.

I don’t believe full anarchy is a solution, tempting as it is. I want cops. Judges. I want to be able to buy a product made 5000 miles away cheaply because of systems in place that allow for things to get to me.

Where am I gonna get my laptop from where I am?

Systems like the Internet require cooperation on a very large scale.

BUT within these flawed systems, some basic civility and an allowance for anarchy is necessary imo for a functional society. Push and pull. Lots of “leave me alone and I’ll leave you alone”. Cooperation on scales greater than basic civility when a group of people want to accomplish a goal.

But I put civility as primary with force (either from the in to the out or the out to the in) as something that should rarely be necessary.

I took a test once that put me as a “social anarchist”. I’d say that’s more or less true.
