Who leads an anarchy? LO29150 -was: System Rules

Hello Wayne,

Who doesn't lead an anarchy? We're all trying to make sense of our
environment - anarchy, chaos, equivocality, uncertainty, surprise being
the natural state - and organizing seems to offer a smart way out. The
more organized we become, however, the more we want to control, the more
we run the risk of running into a revolution, an anarchy. In Orwell's
Animal Farm there emerge bosses, masters because the animals (? are they
animals) were unable to manage leadership and let anarchy "rule".
Perhaps "Lord of the Flies" is a better example.

Kind regards,

Jan Lelie
