Look up the definition of anarchy

___________

"Definition #4 on Dictionary.com."

Why did you choose #4? I was talking about #1;

[ 1.a state of society without government or law. ]

No pesky government rules, laws, etc. No publicly enforced laws. The ultimate motivational society.

"People who don't care because they'll be getting freebies."{

Again, freebies suck. But let's explore that a minute. Suppose someone is happy with sucky freebies. You don't want them to have even sucky freebies. So, in your ideal society, what happens with those people? Let them die? That isn't a society I want to live in. How about those who've had a run of bad luck, hard times, or simply lack the ability to 'do better'? Same question; let them die?

"They won't answer to authority nor accept it. They'll rebel and say "Just give me my stuff". We can't have everyone running around doing whatever because there are no consquences for bad decisions."

That's what anarchy is. Turns out you like government for some things, eh?
