Sorry to be a pedant, but whatever the environment, the alternative
philosophical term could be anarchism, not anarchy, for that implies
chaos.  However, we do not have any practical experience of anarchism
since the Spanish Civil War.

We do not have chaos in software development, even though not all of us
approve of the rules under which it occurs.
