What goes where

I just stumbled upon nostate.com which quoted this fine bit of writing:

I get tired of the same old questions about anarchy, especially the one that goes “What would you put in the place of government?” The answer, obviously, is “nothing”. I’m an anarchist, remember? What part of an-archy do you not understand? I liken the question to someone’s asking you what you are going to put on your neck after you have that tumor removed.

Just freakin’ beautiful. And I really appreciate that he wraps up with:

It’s not my job to tell people what to do once they throw off their rulers. I don’t know what a post archy community would be like. There’d be an infinite number of possibilities for folks to organize cooperatively. The state is evil, and I won’t budge an inch on its legitimacy.
