Since when is anarchy tyrannical?
When it leads to people's rights being violated, obviously. If you get shot walking down the street because there's no government to stop it, that's tyrannical.

Anarchy can be just as tyrannical as totalitarianism. A lack of governance is just as big a threat to freedom as too much government.
