I cannot see an anarchist state as degenerating into anything other than some kind of meritocracy, in which injustice would be rife.
Hahaha, how terrible and unjust - a meritocracy!

Interestingly (though I'm sure you already know this), the word "meritocracy" comes from an essay by Michael Young in which a 'meritocratic' society is presented as dystopian and undesirable. It's interesting how words enter our political discourse.

£20 says the government starts using this and adds ID tags to packets of crisps and then fines you if they find one.

I saw the story below and thought that it illustrates that it is people who solve problems and make changes for the good not governments. Wouldn't more people solve more problems if there were no government to supposedly solve it for them?

This is almost exactly the same thought that I had when I read this story in the paper this morning.
