    I understand that the desire for anarchism is the removal of government, not chaos.
    Without some form of government, there is no way to achieve a lack of government. And if it were possible to achieve voluntarily, unless it was a worldwide agreement, some other government would just take over all the people that just decided to get along. And without some kind of government there would be no way to prevent the rise of government. Therefore the lack of government could only occur if there was complete agreement among not only the majority of the population, but among the entire population. Government is the way that these diverging opinions can be somehow turned into unified action. This idea that we don't need government is based on the idea that it is possible human nature for all of us to get along in everything that we do without anyone making us do so.

    I don't understand what the point of this is. How about a rewrite?
