Contrary to popular belief, the word Anarchy does not refer to a society without rules in which complete chaos reigns. Anarchy simply refers to a society where there are no rulers, where no one is above or not subject to the rules of this society.
In the above video Mark Passio reveals the true definition and Latin origin of the infamous term ‘Anarchy’. Anarchy comes from the Greek prefix an-(av-): “without; the absence of” and the Greek noun archon: “master; ruler”. Anarchy does NOT mean “without rules.” It literally means “without rulers; without masters. Anarchy is the state of existence where there are no Masters and no Slaves. Therefore, Anarchy means the absence of Slavery, or in other words, Freedom.
