Klasmarchy is a term that should be used instead of anarchy in order to describe regions with fragmented governments.
Somalia is probably a great example of the misconception about countries with fragmented governments being labeled as anarchy. It is indeed close to anarchy, as there has been limited government control of the region overall, since the fall of its national socialist regime. And it has seen benefits from that. But it isn’t exactly an anarchist system. And as far as I can tell, there really is no existing word for the condition in areas such as post revolution Somalia. It is not that the region was free from government entirely, but rather that regions formed with local rulers. Perhaps then, rather than call the system an anarchist one, it it should be called “klasmarchist,” from Greek “klasma” meaning fragment.
The advantage of distinguishing between anarchy and klasmarchy is significant. The arguments used by those opposing anarchists disappear. It is not anarchy that we are seeing after all. There is still government. It just takes a very different form. It also better allows us to classify data points in order to see how various levels and types of governments impact a region.
