lets look at history. Places that had no laws and possessed complete freedom were taken over by societies that were "civilised" and limited the rights of people

The latter situation would "last" longer. Although both could exist indefinitely, it is more likely than not that governments will be created in the first situation. Governments are formed when people desire protection from other free individuals. They are willing to offer themselves literally as slaves or as slaves financially by paying taxes so they receive protection in return. Before there was governments there was anarchy. The reason anarchy ended is because people decided they would rather be governed than be vulnerable to outside forces.

The slavery bit I got from a Public Policy class I am taking. If you really think about it, we are in a form slaves to the government since the government has the power to restrict our rights- including if we do not pay them taxes. I am not saying we truly are slaves, but if we want to live in any normal country, we do not have much of a choice.

I don't really believe any system WOULD last that long, I was trying to say that there is a much higher chance that the latter society could. I have a feeling I will know a lot more about this topic in a month from now (when the class ends).
