What scares you more, anarchy or total government control?
Anarchy give one a chance at surviving, and leaves open the chance of convincing enough others to ally and create a limited government. Under tyranny, there is NOWHERE to go.
It doesn’t matter. Any government with total control is tyranny.
Neither is a preferred method of mine but total control by the government scares me more than anarchy. While choices might be harder and more dangerous under anarchy, at least I could still make them.
The reason that even the worst dictator exercises total control is to prevent the anarchy. ...they are afraid of anarchy, so that should tell you something about which is worse.
