  1. When I read this:
    “I tend to refer to myself as an abolitionist instead of an anarchist because the latter term makes most folks fill their pants in fear and misunderstanding.”, I instantly thought of that whiney little coward, outlawpatriot. You know, the LIEberal that pretends to be something else.

    Unlike Buppert, I don’t care what whiney cowards think.
    All of them can be cured by a good hard punch in the face, or a .223 for the more resilient of the wretched species.

  2. Pay attention to the Amish, they have broken the code on eluding government chains in broad daylight via peaceful means.

    I don’t see that. A major goal of government is to reduce a peasant’s lifestyle until they have no free time, money, or land in which to build or invent things which compete with the elites. The Amish live in the same situation, due to the same mental illness of self-loathing. I don’t see any “Amish” operating airlines, doctor-owned hospitals, or petroleum refineries in competition with mainstream fascist offerings, do you?

    • Exactly right…Why can no one see that…They freaking exist because of what’s surrounding them…Drop them in the middle of the middle East and they might last a week but I doubt it…I’m beginning to think that most people live in a fantasy world…

    I don’t care what whiney cowards think either. I’ve declared myself as an anarchist/voluntarist that has read Royce’s HOL, Bastiat, Mises, DiLorenzo, and Larken Rose to name but a few (as Larken stated in a video, “we didn’t END slavery, it’s merely been repackaged and pushed on everyone in America”..something that DiLorenzo failed to realize..).

    The current mania for “who gets to wrestle for the ‘Ring ‘O Power’ to be uberlord of Mordor on the Potomac” inspires nothing more than a yawn from me as no one in ‘gov/authority’ owns ME or is my ‘boss’. I’m my own boss and don’t “need a leader” (in the mythical political sense).

    Keep spreading the wisdom Bill, especially to the young folks!!

    Well! That explains a lot. 😀

    While I may agree in theory with anarchists, one of the glaring issues to me is it seems to divorce itself from the geopolitical realities of today. We’ve seen dictatorships of all stripes and sizes. A true anarchist society? I can’t think of one example. Not that a lack of existence implies an impossibility, but it does seem to show improbability and the difficulty of convincing people who are at a genetic level tribal in nature. Regarding today, I fail to see how a collective of atomistic individuals maintain nuclear or military parity in today’s world without some type of organization. The fact being, history has shown even tribal societies cannot compete against an aggressive nation state. Ask the Indians. Ask the Germanic tribes, the Irish, the Scottish, and most of Africa. While the idea is attractive, I simply don’t see a) how to practically implement it today with success and b) how to preserve said society against other nations. Perhaps it’s time to consider whether we are aberrant minds who are more fit in an independent society, but do not posses the numbers to actually do so, by definition. The myth of Cassandra comes to mind…

    • A true anarchist society? I can’t think of one example.

      Iceland did it for 200+ years.

      You don’t need to convince them, you need to prevent them from enforcing their policy onto you. Much easier goal.

      Regarding today, I fail to see how a collective of atomistic individuals maintain nuclear or military parity in today’s world without some type of organization.

      I’m sure there be will a web forum to nerd out over the details of personally owned and built nuclear missile submarines.

      The fact being, history has shown even tribal societies cannot compete against an aggressive nation state. Ask the Indians. Ask the Germanic tribes, the Irish, the Scottish, and most of Africa.

      Those tribal societies lost because their cultural knowledge contained far less technology, which put them at a military disadvantage, not because they were tribal. Tribes in Afghanistan with closer technology parity successfully repelled the aggressive nation states of USA, USSR, UK.

      Perhaps it’s time to consider whether we are aberrant minds who are more fit in an independent society, but do not posses the numbers to actually do so, by definition. The myth of Cassandra comes to mind…

      ‘Do not possess the numbers to actually do so’ is the conclusion of a military analysis predicting the results of future battles. Now imagine 10 million freethinkers each owning 10 drones with pistols. I don’t think your conclusion is justified.

      • I have a question Mr Libertarian.
        At what age am I no longer morally enabled to force my child to eat his greens?

        • At what age am I no longer morally enabled to force my child to eat his greens?

          Children legally and morally become adults when they act like adults. That means setting up their own separate household, earning their own money, paying their own bills, and being punished for their own crimes as adults. If you are a nice parent, you will give them your blessing when they move out. But they don’t need your blessing, and if you are a control freak they can run away. Essentially, the children are demonstrating a homesteading claim on themselves, by open and notorious possession of themselves.

    • “….divorce itself from the geopolitical realities of today.”

      When was the last time you chose to ask the gov’t for assistance?
      Read that line carefully.

    Seeing that we’re still obviously having cognitive dissonance regarding
    the subject of anarchy/voluntarism here are some suggested videos on
    the subject.
    I also suggest reading both “The Iron Web” and “The Most Dangerous Superstition” by Larken Rose. I’m even willing to help out with giving
    the new reader a ‘head start’ in terms of an audio book version (pgs 1-20) below:

    If YOU Were King

    What Anarchy Isn’t

    5 Questions (gov on trial)*

    *these 5 questions are the primary one’s that any supposed
    liberty lover/freedom seeker should pose to themselves as
    they will help show contradictions that still exist for the querrant
    in regard to how successfully they’ve evolved away from being
    a statist and fully embraced true self-ownership.

    The Whole Problem and Solution in Two Minutes

    In the end, this whole discussion boils down to the question of ownership.

    Who owns you?
    If you DON’T own youself, who does?

    If YOU accept ownership of yourself, responsibility for your
    life and your decisions and actions, YOU DON’T OWE ANY
    obligation or fealty to an imaginary entity called ‘government’
    or ‘authority’..any more than you owe it to Santa, The Easter
    Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.

    Freedom or slavery..it’s that simple..it’s YOUR choice.
    And ‘voting’ or being a ‘parchment worshipper’ won’t help you
    any more than Linus’s blankie.
