As Long as Anarchy Exists, Our Freedom Is Insecure?

My friend Sheldon Richman contends that, "As Long as Government Exists, Our Freedom Is Insecure."

But, of course, for every society that ever existed without a government, either that society disappeared, it gave rise to a government, or it was conquered by a society with a government. So if Sheldon's title is correct, logically we ought to also note that "When Government Does Not Exist, Our Freedom Is Insecure."

Or, more simply, freedom is insecure.

Which, I think, is correct.
