Japan: Why can't I be an anarchist?

Japanese university student Hasan at hasanhujairi[dot]com describes a class in which his professor, outlining the progression of the study of Economic History in Japanese academia, ends by telling his students: “Just don’t be Anarchists; we can’t have rebellious Anarchists running amok on campus.”

    What does that silly professor think an Anarchist is? He needs to do a bit of studying himself. The basic tenant of Anarchy is any form of government has people in power with a number one priority of staying in power. Ergo all governments are not in the interest of those governed.It
    is not Anarchist who run amok, but governments. People in power who will do anything to stay there.
