Gandhi’s ideal State was a non-violent state of enlightened anarchy where social life would remain self-regulated. In that State there is no ruler, no subject, no government or no governed. It is a perfect State consisting of enlightened persons, self-regulated and self-controlled following the principles of non-violence.

(From “Gandhi’s ideal State was a non-violent state of enlightened anarchy“)

According to the above article, in Gandhi’s ideal non-violent state of enlightened anarchy, every individual (who is enlightened) lives a self-regulated life, instead of depending on a centralised authority or government. This ideal state resonates with me because it promotes peace, unity and harmony among people. It is a worthy goal to work towards. As long as there is a government, no matter how noble or uncorrupted it may be, it tends to perpetuate a continual dependence of people on the government to regulate their lives.

In this Age of Enlightenment, we all can work towards becoming responsible for our own actions and learning to be guided by love from within. When more of us do that, there will be no need for police to keep law and order because we will respect one another’s rights. Eventually, there will be no need for government too, as we can learn to collaborate with one another to achieve our dreams and meet our needs. I hope to see more of this happening in our collective evolution.
