  • Re: government is good!

  • Re: Capitalism Refuted?

    [quote user="krazy kaju"][quote user="Nick Ricci"] Anarchists, I believe, use the notion of "coercion" in a completely backwards way.

  • Re: Austrian Economics and the Concentration of Wealth

    It's worthy of note that people who employ such arguments reason with a fallacious understanding of the concept of wealth.
