Do people who call themselves anarchists really believe a world with no order and complete choas would be a good one to live in? If this is the case, why would they believe that?

This is not the case. Anarchists believe a world in anarchy, that is without rulers so people make their rules and form their social organizations with like-minded fellows, will be a world with the greatest prosperity. People always say a free market is one that brings the greatest prosperity. So what about social freedom along with economic freedom?

anarchy literaly means "without rule" (monarchy being "ruled by one") if you have ever heard of the "social contract theory" (to which i adhere) you'd know that total anarchy is impossible, for people will always band together in small groups, and over larger periods of time, would form old forms of government again. the "commonwealth" idea of no police no taxes, is not really anarchy. the peole still rule themselves in many ways. the problem however is that in a world with no rule, no-one would do anything for the greater good if he felt it was not for his own good as well. roads, bridges, sewer systems and the like would fall n disrepair, because "i'm not gonna pay for road that i will never use" will be heard a lot. the benefit of taxation by the government is that it is meant for just that.

It's more of a way of life, and trying not to be part of a system that uses, abuse, and lies to you for its own personal gain. Its also about helping people out and demanding something in return.

when you think about it anarchy is just letting people do what govs already do, which is kill and steal from each other. FUn!
