Is Somalia an anarchist entity.
asked Jul 21 by xdxd
anarchists ultimately don't want to be controlled by anyone else in a non-mutualistic manner. From what I know somalia isn't any better of a place to do that than your typical bougie first-world country like the US, Canada, Europe. I think people making a big deal out of rojava is kind of funny even if traveling there might be exciting.

no, it's not.

anarchy is not just the absence of officially/internationally recognized government. it's also the absence of tribal or other kinds of feudalism, warlords, capitalism, etc.

i don't know much about somalia except for what one can glean from mainstream news sources, but i believe there are many hierarchical institutions still operating there.
