    Okay. You didn't really explain the differing modes of anarchy but I'll let you slide since it's a copypasta. Now. Add capitalism to the equation. Add economic security to the equation. Both are anti-capitalist. Yet both require economic security. Economic security demands servitude. Servitude is achieved by force of written rule or gun. It's just a given. Capitalism is organization. Anarchists (at least true to their principles anarchists) reject capitalism in whole (organization) because they recognize that some capitalist transactions are accomplished by force. To steal a quote from a good book on the topic, "It is a truism that government's power needs only to exist to be feared to be dominant, over the fear-ridden, without ever needing to be exercised aggressively."

    Hm. I didn't even know they transcribed Ron's videos. But I don't need to read it. Let's start with the question that was asked of Ron by the facebook subscriber in that transcript. First question on anarchy: I want to go to this email, and this is from Nathan Kelly. And he emails in to you: would you agree that the best form of government is none at all Or put another way, the only legitimate form of governance is individual governance. Ron Paul: Well, I'm glad he put the last sentence on, because you always want government.

    Well, I don't know what you mean by equating HB's list of works by various authors as "those days." We've always been for small, limited government as a platform. Limited for Liberty. We've not been ant-government as a platform so far as I can recall. If we have and I'm mistaken, then please tell me when that time was. That aside, let's take a look at HB's list. It contains works from a broad cast of authors. All of whom offer differing, varying, and most often contrary applications of an ideal. Now this presents a problem. I'll tell you why. It presents a problem because each and every one of those varying applications must be secured by a governmental body of some concoction which must be supported by both society as well as smart people. It's far more complex than just applying an ism to something and rolling with it. Each one of those varying applications of a single ism demand a tailored means of security. And in every case all you're doing is trading one State for another. The application of any ism (particularly with regard to securing it) is equally as important as said principles of the ism.

    HA. "Natural Citizen'' is new to you. Granted, it's very easy to say that something has been 'covered' just because an opinion has been written down some place. Right? Of course it is. Here is the answer to the question. It is the only legitimate answer. And I'm sure that not one person on this board will disagree with me. Libertarianism permits for voluntary socialism so long as you're a libertarian and have renounced the use of force.

    Ah gawsh. When the youngsters start saying youngster, it's probably time to put me out to pasture. lolol. I keep forgetting that we've watched people basically grow up under the tent for the past 30 years or so. But that's a good thing, I suppose. You guys would've had fun in the 80s when a feller had to pound pavement the old fashioned way. No Internet, no smart phones, no nothing. Instant activism was unheard of. Only radio and newspapers and if your letter got through to the editor and printed, it was a small victory. Billboards were the memes of the day. lolol.

    But there would be a State none the less. Economic security requires a coercive force. As a consequence, any system which depends upon coercive force to achieve economic security demands servitude. This is fundamental. Another thing, Pierz, respectfully speaking. This is just a little tip for functionally debating, since I've noticed that you try to do this quite a bit in order to sell your ism. And it's not just you, this happens every time we debate trustees of this particular ism. You cannot reframe the question or the terms of the whole of the debate in order to omit your ism's shortcomings. At least, not honestly. You will get busted and called out on it every single time. At least, on this forum. Every single time. Simple ignorance, of course, is an entirely different matter. We'll try to help one to understand the shortcomings of voluntary socialism if one is willing to objectively hear them so as to make an informed choice toward a functional understanding of the workings of culture, government, proper man-to-man/government-to-man relations, etc.

    Aw, geez. Why'd you have to quote me, of all people on this thread? Hm? Why? I left the thread. Firstly, I advocate for small government. Meaning that the government has one and only one role. Which is to protect Individual Liberty. That isn't possible in what is being offered in this thread. What is being offered in this thread is the question of replacing one State with another State. And in the replacement State (A Democracy in this case), the Individual and any group of Individuals has no protection against the Majority. None. In a Democracy there is no mechanism to protect the rights of The One to the right to his rights against the unchecked power of the Majority. Secondly, I'm intellectually honest enough to know that anarchy and capitalism do not mix. They are patently contrary to one another in fundamental principle. I'm smart enough to understand that economic security is not possible without a coercive force.

    Well. Collectivist mindsets do tend to view humans as members of groups rather than as individuals. I know vegans who just mind their own business and don't bother anybody.

    Is the president as ignorant of the world as he displayed in this speech? Wow. Just wow. He speaks of respecting the sovereignty and independence of other nations yet threatens to invade and overthrow the leaders of nations that have not threatened us. Iran has not invaded another country in hundreds of years and they have been completely compliant with the Nuclear deal. Hezbollah is a result of Israel's illegal invasion of Lebanon in the 1980s; they are a political party in Lebanon and even the Christian Lebanon president has stated they work directly with the Lebanese military forces and he is thankful for them. Venezuela, seriously Mr. President? You're going to invade Venezuela next? What happened to "respecting the sovereignty of other nations"? How has Cuba threatened us? More sanctions on yet another country that has not threatened us? What happened to "America First" instead of being the policeman of the world? If you are talking about invading other countries due to their human rights abuses against their own people, how about looking at the U.S. criminal justice system which treats U.S. prisoners the way they are treated in 3rd world banana republics? How about looking at our ""allies"" in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey whose rights abuses against their own populations far exceed Venezuela? Do you blame the North Korean government for clinging onto nuclear weapons after Gaddafi got rid of his weapons & yet was murdered by U.S. backed jihadists? No, Mr. President, there is no proof Assad used sarin gas against his own people, but there's plenty proof the U.S. military used white phosphorus and depleted uranium against the Syrians and Iraqis -- neither of which was any threat to the U.S. at all. What about the U.S. backed genocide against the Yemeni people? A country that has never threatened us, the humanitarian crisis there is larger by far than any country on earth right now due to the U.S. military backed war against the indigenous Houthi's who simply want political representation in a U.S. puppet state. What an arrogant buffoon you are Mr. President.
