Summary/Abstract: The paper analyses the good elements of (classical) anarchistic movement, i.e. the idea that a well-organized society requires each individual to understand and obey a common set of self-accepted rules rather than wait for the State to impose the rules unto each individual. By making a parallel between the 1990 civic movements in Romania and the current ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement in the United States, the paper explores the possibility of renewing the particular rules based on popular demands while keeping untouched the idea of ‘rule of law’ as a key principle in building a functional society.
