  • Whom is the government aggressing against when it collects income taxes via my employer?

    My employer said it would pay me $X/hour, however it only paid me a fraction of that amount. It gave the difference to the IRS. Does my employer owe me money? Or is there an unwritten clause in my employment contract that says that even though the contract clearly states that I will be paid $X/hour,...

  • Private Courts and private police

    Private Police If you take the libetarian perspective given by Walter Block police and courts wouldn't be paid out of taxes. How would private police be able to afford to investigate child abuse as children wouldn't pay for their services? What about poor people that can't afford police insurance...

  • Why is coercion bad?

    So I'm reading Ethics of Liberty , and Rothbard makes a distinction between freedom of choice and power or abundance of choice. If man is stranded on a deserted island, he has a completely unrestricted freedom of choice. Unfortunately, he doesn't have much of an abundance of choice: he can either...

  • Belief in objective morality a large impediment to anarchy?

    It occurred to me recently, reading arguments against libertarianism/anarcho-capitalism, that the majority of opposition to it seems to stem from people's beliefs in objective moralities. To elaborate, I'm referring to when people take their own subjective moral preferences to be an absolute...

  • anarchism and gated communities

    Just a brief question. If there's nothing wrong with gated communities (including the fact that people can't secede from them and thet can raise 'taxes'), what's wrong with a state?

  • Ron Paul is a Voluntaryist (video)

    In this video, using Ron Paul's own words from his books and interviews, it is shown that Ron Paul's goal is voluntaryism. He adopts limited-government positions and appeals to the U.S. Constitution as part of a long-term strategy for achieving a completely free society, absent any State.

  • Leftist anarchists love violence

    I keep seeing posts about lefty anarchists attacking police and causing riots on these kinds of blogs: Do you think there's a link between...

  • Anarchism: how to sustain it?

    I don't consider myself an anarchist, at least not yet. One huge intellectual roadblock I am having preventing me from accepting anarchy is how it can be sustained. Who is to prevent a government from forming, or a powerful elite from taking over and acting as a de facto government? What if somebody...

  • On the strategy of persuasion, a caveat.

    There is a disturbing trend that I’ve come across lately and that is when, people of anarcho-capitalism persuasion drag down their fellow free-market libertarians and minarchists for not going 'all the way'. Now i personally would say that support the rights-based anarcho-capitalist ideal;...
