    Athenian democracy was a state, and therefore not anarchic. Republics just establish a system where the majority elects a ruler to control everybody. If you analyze the failings of that system, it was actually that the aristocracy and "idiocracy" rose up through the ranks by being slick and persuasive. The ruling class always develops within a state.

    By the way, Alexander the Great was from Macedonia, not Athens. Athenian democracy ended because of war, which is a necessary struggle members of all ideologies must contend with.

    Ho Chi Minh established the inverted totalitarian one party state. The CPV manufactured cult of personality gives the illusion of legitimacy to this day.

    Anarchism is a political solution, and not an economic solution persay.

    Is there any chance primitivism is the answer? :)
    It's a hard way I know ;)

    The foundation of capitalism is the casino. And money printing. The foundation of socialism is genocide. Two glorious options for humans to choose from.

    Interesting that both of them survive on one thing, and that is military fire power.

    Now, in the age of drones, untraceable, and delivering cluster bombs and nuclear warheads, we can forecast, that the future of society is global enslavement followed by cannibalism.
