Chaos isn’t always a bad thing, it may be fun for somebody to cause an anarchy, as you know, some governments make a chaos in some cases to achieve their golden goals in other fields, it’s such a powerful tool to disturb and confuse the public and abuse it for own benefits.


“Without order nothing can exist – without chaos nothing can evolve.”

Chaos is a very bad thing. It immobalizes you, making you make mistakes. The other days I’ve watched the movie by Steven King, Mist. I was quite dissapointed by the ending. the ending is VERY BAD, untypical to Hollywood movies.  But it’s Steven King and he got a point picturing through literature the bad effect of panic, chaos, not being able to stop to think and have common sense and eventually giving up and making an irrevesable mistake.
