  • Re: Meritocracy is vulgar.

    [quote user="EmperorNero"] [quote user="Scott F"]My point is that in this among other things, it's not enough to oppose the state.We need to oppose cultural authoritarianism and the state too.An-caps don't get that and until they do they're cutting the ground from under themselves.[/quote] "Scott, you seemed to agree

    [quote user="Jack Roberts"] "I find these quasi-anarchism systems have bastardised true anarchism." The same could/is said about 'Anarcho'- capitalism. And I think it's pretty true. "In my opinion communist-anachism is an oxymoron. They are incompatible," So people can't voluntarily choose communism? that's

    [quote user="Angurse"] Tucker was a mutualist as were 99% of individualist anarchists throughout history. Where did you get that number?
