    Totalitarianism, anarchy would become totalitarian after a while anyway.

    If you mean anarchy to a free society with no coercive monopoly state, then I vote for anarchy.

    I think that question is like asking do you want to be stomped in the nuts by person A or be person B,either way your screwed.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Anarchy or Totalitarianism?

    I think it depends on the totalitarian. I don't think I'd mind being ruled by a super powerful computer that is programmed to be beneficent. A lot of people like the idea of a totalitarian system ruled directly by god or Jesus. Anarchy would dissolve into rule by the oppressive and brutal, like the dark ages. Totalitarianism could be nice. It probably wouldn't be, but it at least has a chance to be greater than 0%.

    Totalitarianism is better, mostly because at least science progress would still be possible.
