Anarchy can best be described as a state of absolute lawlessness, absence of control, disorder and confusion. Such a state optimizes an absolute absence of government.
Such a situation stalls political progress, stagnate economic development and stultifies meaningful achievement in the social and welfare sectors.
Indeed nothing works, everybody is unsure of the next moment as these is usually complete break down of law and order, peace and tranquility.
God in His infinite majestic wisdom foresaw the grave consequences of such a chaotic situation and divinely ordained that act of lawmaking, the amply demonstrated the seriousness of His intention in Genesis chapter 2 verse 16 where he enjoined Adam and follows; “you may eat fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad.
You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day”. God further demonstrated His distaste for lawlessness in Exodus chapter 20 verses 1 to 17 where He handed down the Ten commandments to the Israelites during their journey through the desert to the promise land.
Among the various Nigerian traditional tribes, different means of law enactment and enforcement have always been put to use. In most case lawless conducts, criminal disposition and deprived behaviours are usually frowned at and outrightly regarded as taboo. Those who perpetrate them are supremely punished, ostracized or perpetually banished.
In such circumstances, the cabinet members of the respective traditional leadership, the age grade system or even masquerades may be used as law enforcement agents. In Ancient Greece, the birth place, of demonstrate the function of legislation was the supreme responsibility of the king or Anax, appointed by Zens. Lawless citizen received all manner of punishment, upto and including banishment.
