that ol' time anarchy

Robert A. WicksWrites Robert A. Wicks:

I grew up in a black, rural community in Mississippi. …

Those neighborhoods, with their localized anarchy, were nonetheless orderly places. The communities policed themselves through ostracism and familial ties. There was little disorder within anarchy. …

And what do we frequently see in those areas now? Chaos. Disorder. Mayhem. Government. …

What afflicts many American black neighborhoods and communities today is not the absence of rules so much as the natural effects of rules forced upon the unwilling. …

Far from bringing chaos, the anarchic portions of our lives are usually the most peaceful and orderly parts of them.
