I define anarchy as a situation in which there is a lack of domination or institutional authority: without laws or rulers.

The answer would be different if you asked about anarchism, and I purposely excluded any value-laden language in my definition (so I am neither saying anarchy = good or anarchy = bad, although I personally strive to make anarchy happen as often as possible).

ANARCHISM: beliefs or behavior opposing hierarchical power, exploitation, and alienation, instead advocating collaborative self-determination and intentional resistance, historically through diverse means.

ANARCHY: absence of hierarchical power, exploitation, and alienation, especially through collaborative self-determination and intentional resistance; a society without rulers.
