Anarchism, Agorism, and Voluntarism
There is no political solution to the problem of government. Voting for a new ceremonial figurehead every four years has never, will never, and could never create any significant lasting positive change because governments cannot be improved or made moral from within. There are too many vested interests and no Statist system, be it Monarchy, Oligarchy, Communism, Democracy, Republic, or Dictatorship, none of them respect the right of the individual to opt-out of being governed.
make the mafia moral?
Anarchy, a once respectable term simply meaning "without rulers," advocating society without government, has long been re-branded hand-in-hand with "chaos" wearing bandana face-masks throwing molotov cocktails. The actual idea of non-violent sovereign societies enlightened and capable beyond the need for Statist governance, however, is certainly ideal, and not chaos.
just keep it simple and call it Freedom; it is the missing ingredient in all governments and the root of all State corruption and criminality. If people want to have a bureaucracy of diplomats creating a bunch of social programs for their benefit (what governments claim to be) then that's fine, but just because some guy in a suit wrote something on a piece of paper doesn't make it mandatory, and just because the mafia says "you'd better pay up" doesn't mean you should.
