THREE DECADES AGO, I published “Do We Ever Really Get Out of Anarchy?” The answer I gave is that we do not, that government only substitutes one kind of anarchy for another. In this paper I revisit the eponymous question, drawing on Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau, as well as several contemporary scholars, for support.
Keywords: anarchy, democracy, dictatorship, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau
