Rules are needed (and wanted) to ensure that our behaviour is regulated to meet the common expectations of society.  The absence of laws, the inability to enforce laws or the unfair and unequal application of laws can result in states of anarchy or tyranny.  What circumstances can you imagine when there might be an absence of laws, inability to enforce laws, or unfair or unequal application of laws?


DEFINE: From the Greek word anarchia – “without a ruler”  The absence of laws and government  A state of chaos and disorder, resulting from the absence of rules and laws 

A state of anarchy may break out during a revolution or after a natural disaster, because law enforcement agencies no longer exists or are unable to enforce the laws of society  Violence and widespread looting are two early indications that a society is on the verge of anarchy   Certain philosophers believe that anarchy doesn’t imply chaos, but rather a ruler-free society with voluntary social harmony.


DEFINE: The opposite of anarchy  A tyrant is a single leader who has unlimited power over the people in a country or state  Generally involves severe punishment for any infringements of the law. 

Tyrannical power is often (but not always) seized  Countries where tyranny exists are often referred to as “police states”  There is no rule of law when there is tyranny 
