You Mean Anarchism Isn’t All About Chaos?
Social activist Lucy Parsons once said, “Anarchism has but one infallible, unchangeable motto, "Freedom." Freedom to discover any truth, freedom to develop, to live naturally and fully." Anarchism then, is being able to live and not be ruled by a government, but instead to live by one’s own means in order to increase the good for oneself and others who share the common belief. Human beings are capable of making the decisions. Instead of being ruled by one, anarchists live by agreement on decisions that will work for everyone.
Like anarchism, conservatism, liberalism, and libertarianism, have different views as to how one should be governed or ...view middle of the document...

While some religions may argue that homosexuality is a sin and that it should not be tolerated, anarchism accepts these relationships and embraces them. One should not base their relationships off of what a church or law says, one should do what they feel is right. Why should others have a right to choose whether you can be with someone you love or not? It is an unjust way to treat others who love the exact same way that everyone else does.
What some people don’t understand is that not everyone is alike. We all have different tastes in clothing, music, or books, but also whom we date. Unlike the other stances, anarchism includes the belief that one should be in whatever kind of relationship they choose to be in and that it should not be limited or restricted by “higher power” or what is said to be morally correct. In her essay, Highleyman states, “Anarchists generally want to get government out of the business of approving personal relationships, rather than extending such approval to same-sex relationships” (9). Through this she says that rather than waiting for the government to pass laws that say its okay to marry if you are gay, anarchists would rather have the government just mind their own business and not worry about a man marrying a man or a woman marrying another woman. Therefore, anarchy creates a better society through acceptance and not tolerance.
Much like the progression of same-sex marriage acceptance, technological advancements have also dramatically increased within a small period of time. According to anarchistic belief, not all technology is used for the welfare of everyone but it also is not used in evil manners. The division between the two is clear, however, technology isn’t being used for just one purpose. For example, not all guns are being used to kill innocent people. Instead, some people obtain them in order to keep themselves and their families safe. Just the presence of the gun itself is not going to keep a family safe, but if there were to be someone dangerous breaking into their house to harm them, then the gun would provide them with the safety necessary to get away from them. Although the gun could potentially hurt someone or even kill them, it also provides them with assurance that they are safe from harm’s way.
On the opposite end, guns are used to harm innocent people. For example, on December 14, 2012, 20 children and six adults were killed in Newtown, Connecticut because a man decided to use firearms to resolve his personal issues. He may have been mentally unstable, or he may have just been an evil man searching for a way of release, but he is a perfect example of how technology is being used for evil. There is no acceptable reason for why someone would kill innocent children and adults. Although some people think that the banning of technology like this will keep us safe, there are ways that the technological advances can help with the welfare of all. If not for technology,...
