  • Re: The "Anarchy Extreme"

    I'm just trying to look at things from the plunder's perspective and how to maximize profit for myself. I am sorry for asking so much, I just want to know how plunder's are going to be countered in an evironment where profit will be the primary motive of protection by an organization. Now let me take a deeper look into your idea of speculation

  • Re: Hitler Declares War on the United States

    I always thought that Hitler's declaration of war against the US was common knowledge for those who know of WWII. But then again I was homeschooled and I realized there are alot of things I thought people just knew but didn't. (I always feel like I was sheltered in HS, good thing too).

    However, if there is little crime in the area and profits cease to be made, won't their be cuts in the security forces (like personelle etc.) thus weakening the security forces ability to ward off criminals in the area who might wish to plunder the citizens.. I'm not saying there would cease to be guns but thier may not be enough guns to counter

  • Re: The "Anarchy Extreme"

    I've been in a lot of contemplation about anarco capitalism(AC) and have one question that I hope to get answered. Assuming that AC is effective at curbing violence in society to levels whereby it becomes inconsequential to have security and demand for use of the security force begins to diminish significantly in the newly safe environment. What

  • Re: Legitimacy of Non-Profit Organizations

    [quote user="Brian"] Can someone explain to me what definitively separates a non-profit organization from a for-profit organization? I mean, the non-profits still do make a profit. They just use it in a different way than for-profits. The executives still get salaries, and they use their profits to complete their humanitarian/etc. objectives

  • Re: The Kindle DX

    [quote user="VA"] I have the Sony Reader Touch Edition. Epub files work great and so do the numerous pdfs [/quote] I have one of those too. The fact that I can use the touch screen to highlight and write notes makes all the difference when I am studying some books. Also, there is a way for me to write notes when I am not reading (such as listening

  • Re: Libertarian humor: Good oneliners for discussions with statists?

    The best case against democracy is to talk to the average voter for 5 minutes. Socialism is what happens when the talen pool in society begins to shrink. The only thing the government knows how to produce is long lines. The funny thing about government, the smaller it is the better it gets. I just recently discovered an organization that extorts money

  • Re: Society: the sum of parts or a whole without parts?

    Yes it does help clarify your argument and I thank you. I think I can still explain it in a different context to still keep my argument in tact. I'll read the article and think about it some more. Thank you for the clarification this will be a good thinking exercise for me ^_^

    If the ship can only be Thesus's ship if the agent defines it as such, then what if someone takes the ship from him without his consent? He can claim the ship is his, but unless the ship is present and he can use it as he sees fit, then it cannot be his. The problem i see with your theory is that it relies to heavily on the use of terms as they

    I guess to be historically acurate, Rothbard is right. Let's say "Germany invaded France". This immediately implies "All Germany invaded France". Is this statement true? Of course not. Some people had to stay behind and make the weapons and take care of the children. It would be more accurate to say "X number of Germans
