In keeping w/ my ongoing project of showing uses of "anarchy" in the bks I read, I refer the reader to page 186 of this. On it, the space colonists, after having been attacked by government forces from Earth, are informed that 'civilization' on Earth has been destroyed by a nuclear disaster, & are asked to accept this new government that's just attacked them as governing them too. The patriarch of the family accepts their authority, informing his family: "That's the way it has to be. Otherwise, there'd be anarchy." Right. There'd be anarchy, there might not be any more nuclear disasters or government forces attacking them. Heaven forbid.
