"What would generally be termed anarchy is not necessarily bad. No, anarchy is the state of someone who wants to lead their life in their own way and refuses to submit to the established order. Whether this order be good or bad, they want to live according to their own ideas, and these ideas might even be superior to those of the established order.
Society might regard them as anarchists, but if they aspire to more love, more fraternity and greater justice, they are not anarchists in the eyes of heaven. For initiates, the only people who are anarchists are those who refuse to recognize the divine order, the existence of the Lord of the universe, of higher entities and forces, and rules to which they must submit. They may be in perfect agreement with a society composed of millions of people who have no spiritual life, but they are anarchists in relation to the Sublime Intelligence of the universe because they transgress its laws." - Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

1530s, from French anarchie or directly from Medieval Latin anarchia, from Greek anarkhia "lack of a leader, the state of people without a government" (in Athens, used of the Year of Thirty Tyrants, 404 B.C., when there was no archon), abstract noun from anarkhos "rulerless," from an- "without" (see an- (1)) + arkhos "leader" (see archon).
Either the State for ever, crushing individual and local life, taking over in all fields of human activity, bringing with it its wars and its domestic struggles for power, its palace revolutions which only replace one tyrant by another, and inevitably at the end of this development there is ... death! Or the destruction of States, and new life starting again in thousands of centers on the principle of the lively initiative of the individual and groups and that of free agreement. The choice lies with you! [Prince Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921)]
"Jesus Christ was the supreme example of authentic anarchy — the creative non-violent anarchist par excellence — working not from the top down, but from the bottom up with the poor, and the poorest of the poor, to empower people and enable them to realize their potential, as men and women made in the image of God."
