Anarchy is often used pejoratively simply to mean chaos, violence, and complete lack of political and/or social order. This is one ordinary use of the word, but it does not describe a suitable subject for an encyclopedia article. Anarchy has an interesting use, according to which anarchy is a political ideal.

But when it is used to describe a political ideal, anarchy is a term used in two different ways by the adherents of two different political views: TraditionalAnarchism and AnarchoCapitalism. It is worth noting that although it is likely that adherents of either view will surely have many disagreements with the other, it is not correct to think of them as being diametric opposites.

See AnarchisM.
