I truly believe that anarchy is the only true path to all of humanity becoming strong and genuinely peaceful. The biggest problem though is that it would take many years of people dying like crazy till all the bad people are finally done away with.

No matter what you do there will always be bad people.

If it wasn’t for the police, not only wouldn’t we be safe in our homes but also preys to predators. If police didn’t exist, groups and organizations of people will create their own government. Not exactly good, reasons in my eyes are not only would it lead to Anarchy, where people would basically go ballistic and needy for food, protection, supplies and etc. But the fact that people would form different gangs and territorial defenses. More lives would be lost than won. Resources would eventually become scarce, and no order would seize to exist.

@Notbertquigley: You forgot to capitalize your sentence “dummy.” You forgot a period as well. LMAO

While this little dreamy land we’d all like to be true is nice, our nation, and the world for that matter, would collapse. There are too many people out there who would take advantage of it and the crime would be uncontrollable.

Yeah just imagine every single bad thing that you could imagine happening.  It would definitely happen.

     Anarchy is like Communism; (to some people) Sounds good on paper, doesn’t work in real life.

Then who would scare bad people into behaving correctly? The most major factor that prevents total anarchy is law enforcement. Ever heard people mention how seeing cops make them nervous even f they did nothing wrong? Just the presence of police and knowledge that bad actions receive harsh punishment help keep people line for the sake of the safety of everyone else. Laws and the enforcement of them is needed for human society to stay as civil as possible.

We need valid authority, but what we don’t need is corrupt cops, and government that allow these horrible police to do whatever they want. There are good and genuinely steadfast cops that are here to help, but many do not hold those same values, and they ruin what being a police is supposed to be about.

There is always going to be corruption because humans as a race have the prominent trait of greed. In writing, it may seem easy to ask for the eradication of corruption and at the end that is what law is attempting to do, but it is harder to maintain law when law officials themselves are the ones that are corrupt. Law and legality can only do so much to maintain order, but people themselves need to have common decency and integrity which they seem to lack.

Do we really need an order?

Do we really need a government?

Do we really need oxygen?

Imagine a world where there was nobody to keep any sort of order… wait you would be dead in that world. At that point, there would be nothing to differentiate us from animals. Each of us is there to survive and the biggest bully would be the winner. If we are in a society where there are millions of people incarcerated each day for committing crimes, even while existing in a society with some ideals of order and law, then how exactly would we exist in a world where there was nobody to follow right or wrong? In theory, the non-existence of cops may same as a utopia because of the increase in news about corruption, but there are noble cops and we need someone to preserve our hopes for a functioning environment. On a side note, are we really at the point in humanity at which we start questioning the establishment of order, essentially devolving us to caveman days?
