This is something that a post to Facebook inspired--sorta. It seems to me that people don't quite know the difference between anarchy and mob rule. To me they are different, perhaps I see it that way because there are many self-described anarchists in "Occupy". But it seems to me that while Anarchy is a society without rulers, where decisons are made by consesus of small groups, that mob rule is the abscence of rules, besides "might makes right". What does everyone else think?

It's not too often that someone sends me to the dictionary, but Attikos did.
