What a retard. Anarchy is the opposite of government. He is thinking of Nihalism. Government is the worst but really.

He did not clarify what he was really thinking. God established government; the best being a Theocracy. After that, a government run by righteous men is good, but once a people vote in unrighteous men, government becomes a burden on the people, and eventually their master.

Read your history books and you will learn this statement to be true. Government may start with good intent, but always ends in a power struggle to impose unjust, and oppressive laws on its people. The true road to individual liberities and freedoms is anarchy!
