Many attempts have been made to describe Discordianism. Many attempts have failed. Discordianism is a philosophy. Some have described it as "like Taoism, but funnier. " Some people think that Discordians take serious things humorously. That is not quite true; rather, we take humorous things seriously. Discordianism has a lot to do with Order and Disorder (which is what Chaos uses to manifest itself onto the material plane). The two are considered equals, more or less. Discordianism isn't about anarchy, the downfall of government, and breaking stuff, per se (of course, it isn't NOT about those things, either). It's about creativity, and that takes both Order and Disorder. One camp of Discordians believes there is enough order in the world as it is, and so dedicate themselves to being fonts of disorder, thus evening up the overall balance. Another camp takes things more personally, and so looks to strike a balance between order and disorder within the individual. They're both right.
