so not to be an autist or anything, but allow me to be a bit of an autist on this.

"anarchy" is often just taken as a premise to do whatever retarded, depraved bullshit you want, but imma let y'all in on a little secret: anarchy requires tightly structrued and rigid constraints.
The term "anarchy" does not mean "no rules", it means "a lack of rule", i.e. no rulers can dictate the course of one's actions. That does not mean that social norms go out the window; you don't get to just punch people, or piss in the streets. Driving on the right side of the road is a law in America, but it is also a norm; people often isntictually walk on the right side of the side walk because it's a social norm we've developed, based on the driving practice. following these rules. No dictator, king, president, etc., is commanding that we walk on the right side of the road. But we still do so because it is a rule -- a norm developed by the community.

in his response to some theives who stole from a shop in the name of the communist principle "from each according to their ability to each according to their need", Peter Kropotkin wrote an essay titled Anarchist Morality. Kropotkin refers to utilitarians like john stuart mill and jeremy benthem as moral influences, as well as the Golden Rule -- a moral principle found in most religions worldwide. One can take up philosphical disagreements, as one should but the fact is that anarchist political philoisphy is not just bomb throwing punk bullshit. Similarly, peter vallentyne's left-libertarianism makes ample use of utilitarian ethics, particluarly rule utilitarianism, which states that the ethics of an action are to be judged based on the total amount of pleasure derived from the rule.

so keep keep that in mind when some dipshit uses the term "anarchy". if you give a fuck about the meaning of language, know that a state of anarchy doesn't give you liscence to be a degen pos (although it doesn't prohibit it), it means that no one can force you not to be. As Sartre said, "man is condemned to be free".
