I stumbled accross panarchism the other day, and it really is an interesting idea. Basically, it is loosely some kind of mix between anarchist and libertarian, and can be very basically described as the belief that more than one form of government can exist within one area, and each man can choose which government he chooses to follow. http://www.panarchy.org/day/multigovernment.1977.html The link above is just one mans personal idea of panarchism in practice, although working on the idea of more than one government in a locale, its got a lot of potential. As I find myself loosing all faith in political systems, I find this somewhat attractive ideology on paper, although I think in practice the beauracracy and human nature would absoloutley cock it up. But then again, if democracy came in for thie first time tomorrow, would it suffer all the problems of a new system? Would panarchy work if it had been implimented for long enough for the early problems to dissapear?
