  • To Anarcho-Capitalists: In a society like the one you advocate, what should be the age of consent and how should that be determined?

    The question is bascially just that simple. This was prompted by my viewing another post on child pornography in a libertarian society, and whether the making and sale of it should be permited. One poster basically said that parents own their children until those children reach the age of consent (thus...

  • Anarcho-Capitalism

    So I'm doing a research paper on anarcho-capitalism and have compiled a list of resources. I'm just looking for some feedback on the texts I have chosen. For example, am I missing any crucial literature? Have a listed any texts that wouldn't be all that helpful or aren't relevant (that...

  • Political Definitions

    I would be interested in seeing a post, blog, website, etc that is devoted to defining political terms. I was at a Tea Party where I saw signs calling Obama a communist, a socialist, and a fascist. Which sign was correct? All three? What about Bush, what would we classify him as? I believe there are...

  • Voluntary Slave contract?

    I was at youTube today ( and got into a debate with someone who brought up the issue of Walter Block's support of voluntary slavery. He brought up the issue that in an anarcho-capitalist society, that there would be a risk of people signing their lives away...

  • Could anarchy work in human society?

    Okay - in another forum, a side issue came up, largely because of my ignorance. While I'd love to discuss the possibilities, all of the anarchists I've encountered to date have been nihilists, with no coherent idea of how anarchist society would work. Finding a self-identified anarchist with...

  • Re: Autodidact: The Unnecessary Leper

    I'm not certain that I am entering into this intercourse properly, but here goes: Just joined the Forum. Have considered myself to be libertarian for years. I'm impressed at the level of knowledge that I see here. But, I fear that anything that I might post will be summarily dismissed because...

  • The Climate Change Debate

    I am currently a freshmen student enrolled at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and an avid anarcho-capitalist. I am composing an essay where I need to invent or endorse a government policy that would "deal" with global climate change for a scholarship. It pains me to admit that I can't...

  • Re: The market for hearts and minds...Is a free society self-sustaining?

    One anarchist presented to me the follow theory: Throughout human existence, we've had government get bigger and bigger and bigger until revolution happens and it shrinks. Then it grows bigger and bigger and bigger, but never as big as it had been previously. Again, a revolution happens, and government...

  • The Market for Liberty

    I recently read The Market for Liberty , Linda & Morris Tannehill's 1970 anarcho-Objectivist manifesto. I was struck by many passages. There were many ideas presented that I had not thought of previously, and this work really helped solidify my perspective of anarchism as an orderly system. As...

  • Re: Courts in an anarcho-capitalist society?

    If Smith has done no harm to Jones, but Jones nonetheless hires an agency to take Smith's car because, as Jones falsely claims, Smith has "stolen" it, then the agency and Jones have both aggressed against Smith. (The agency should have varified Jones's claim first.) What is Smith's...
