"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Order of Supposed Existence/Importance:

America speaks about Freedom like it’s the most important thing in the world, whereas the most important thing is, and always will be, Love.
The problem with Freedom is that Freedom with Love is everything that’s wrong with Freedom. The freedom to hurt, to conquer, to control, to strive for the self, to be selfish and self-centered, the freedom to continue on in ignorance or in stupidity, to continue on as a horrible person without anyone to tell you otherwise.
There is a faction of people who would be perfect for Anarchy. Without anyone to tell them what to do, what to think, what to feel, they’d relish in their newfound freedom and joyously live out their lives without ever having to harm or bother anyone else. A true pursuit of happiness with no restrictions, none needed, because things like theft, murder, adultery and fraud, lying wouldn’t be necessary for them. They’d be strong enough to live, breathe, feed and exist without those rules, for they completely rule themselves. Anarchy is great, for them.
What Anarchists probably don’t realize is that the rest of the world isn’t like that. Some people have the law being the only thing between them and rape. Some people only have the bible standing between them and murder. Some people would need the government in place to control their more negative sides, their more dark impulses, the things that are supposedly opposite from humanity. Crimes are committed on a daily basis today, with the law in place. Prisons are only getting more full as time passes on. What Anarchists probably don’t realize is, how bad would people be without imposed law?
It’s not that Freedom and Anarchy are bad things. They can just be badly used.
Sunny: That went way farther than I thought it would.
