RE: Are You Confused by the Word "Anarchy"?

in #anarchylast year

To be more precise, autarchism is more consistent as it means "self-rule" rather than "no rulers" based on the Greek prefix. You control and own yourself.

Sort:  

an

Greek: prefix; no, absence of, without, lack of; not

archon

(Greek: ἄρχων, romanized: árchōn, plural: ἄρχοντες, árchontes) is a Greek word that means "ruler", frequently used as the title of a specific public office. It is the masculine present participle of the verb stem αρχ-, meaning "to be first, to rule".

Seems like without rulers to me.

Self-rule is maybe implied within the non-aggression principle and the philosophy of liberty.
