'Anarchy' as a noun ('an anarchy')
« on: April 11, 2007, 01:47:41 PM »

I don't think this term makes sense. You can call something a democracy because it has clearly defined regions (all the people that can vote), but how can one make a logical distinction between government and a gang?

That's not a good reason.

How?
By caring.

According to Lindsey one does not need feelings to care.

Just as we call outer space "a vacuum", we can call a region "an anarchy".

This doesn't answer my question:

how can one make a logical distinction between government and a gang?

Governments say they rightfully own you. Other kinds of gangs don't.

Anarchy is a noun, but not all nouns are correctly preceded by articles (as in "an anarchy.")  For example: "Anarchy is the state of being without rule."  "Anarchy is good."
