  • Re: What's the deal with Somalia?

    [quote] The "anarchy" in Somalia is, to my knowledge, hardly comparable to the type envisioned by Rothbard of Friedman. It has no ruling government, although there is one technically in existence which is backed by the UN, and I believe that various tribes and tribal courts prevail as the de...

  • Proof that there are dumb statist liberals in the south.

    I had always hoped that the dumb yokels of the south would be on the side of Anarchism if the shit hit the fan (see: I hate da guvernmints), but there is a horrible, growing trend of these bastards that are becoming statists. Because who doesn't want free shit right?

  • Re: If Anarchism works, explain Somalia.

    This one's always bugged me.I mean if somalia is what we believe in and statism is a failure too then we're screwed both ways and might as well give up all political thinking now. My thoughts on why somalia is not an example of the anarchy we believe in are 1. though the somalia's have the...

  • Is Somalia Still Anarchy?

    I have seen many anarcho-capitalists use Somalia as an example of a stateless society. However, according to the map below, it looks like almost all of Somalia is either controlled by the Somaliland government, the TFG government, or one of the various Islamist governments. Is the map inaccurate, or...

  • Re: The Somalia argument

    I don't classify myself as one, but there is a difference between what anarchy is (or is supposed to be) and mere chaos . A temporary absence of a central government does not an anarchy make, and several violent groups competing to become one either. Believing, that in countries fresh out of a civil...

  • Property rights on Water : Somalian Pirate's Edition

    I read this on NYT article on Somali pirates. The piracy industry started about 10 to 15 years ago, Somali officials said, as a response to illegal fishing. Somalia’s central government imploded in 1991, casting the country into chaos. With no patrols along the shoreline, Somalia’s tuna-rich...

  • Stateless States & Free Markets? Somalia - Good Example?

    So frequently when arguing with people about free markets, said people will declare free markets "the law of the jungle" or they will resort to citing third world nations as examples of the ultimate free market economies. It would seem that Somalia might be one example of this kind of nation...

  • Re: Failed States

    [quote] The Failed States Index 2008 The Rankings Page 2 of 9 This year, Somalia claims the unenviable distinction of being the state most at risk of failure. In many ways, Somalia has failed already, as the unpopular transitional government lacks control of the streets of Mogadishu—much less the...
