    We recently got a $14 minimum wage rise in Brampton where I live (its part of the greater toronto area for those of you that are wondering) and now we can't eat out as much anymore.

    This partly has to do with War of 1812 bullshit but mostly this mentality revolves with the fact that Canada has gun control laws so that somehow makes it safer than America where the whole Country apparently consists of Detroit with a bunch of smaller ghettos surrounding it where if you even take one step south of the border your basically walking into a redneck infested slum. But surprise surprise. Everything costs 1/4 dollars less and most of the suburbs and cities have no crime so I really don't know why I should be bragging.

    The purpose of your question is to propose a fantasy situation as real and possible as the one I did and then assert the relevance of minarchy based on a problem that can only occur in fantasy. Might as well ask, "What would happen in Anarchy if an evil High Dragon attack the village with magical flaming breath that converted everything around it into salt?" This is illustrative of my point though. Minarchy is only logical in a utopian fantasy.

    Yeah, I see that you need to read more works about Liberty. There is a reason they're called Natural Rights. That is because they exist naturally, totally absent of the existence or non-existence of God. Even John Locke, himself quite a religious man, recognized this truth. Reason, he said, not revelation, is how we derive the rights of man. It is by nature of our reason, our sentience, our humanity, that all rights are recognized. You need no God to recognize that you own your life, that you own your body, and that you own the fruits of your labor-your property. These are obvious. You own your life, not anyone else because no one else can become you and live as you. Only you can, therefore your life is yours. If no one else can own your life then they surely cannot own how you live your life, meaning you have the right to determine how you live. This is freedom/liberty. Because you own your life and can decide what to do with it, you produce things using your life. This is property. And as no one has a right to take your life or liberty they have no right to take what the product of your life and liberty- aka your property. Likewise your body is your own for the same reason your life is your own. No one can enter into your body and seize control of it. Therefore they cannot claim it. It belongs to the one whose life is housed in it and who commands it, you. You have your rights exactly because they are biologically natural -hence Natural Laws- entirely distinct from the existence of any Divinity. Indeed, trying to establish the validity of Liberty upon religion will only damn Liberty as religion is a subject that people will never agree upon. If your method of delivering the ideals of liberty is constrained by religion then there are billions who will never accept Liberty because they will never accept your religion. I haven't responded to anything else you said because that is a waste of time. It all precedes from the same errors- conflation of moral and human rights and totally misunderstanding what Natural Rights are. It is funny though that you would accuse me of globalism when only one of us it promoting a violent, all-powerful government which would be able to impost its will on billions of people against their will and without their consent. And that is you. I am doing the exact opposite, promoting a system that if followed would prevent any such global power from even existing. That you would accuse me of globalism just demonstrates how ignorant of Anarchy you are. It also suggests that you are ignorant of what makes globalism so dangerous- the possibility of the Global State. No one frets, "Oh, no! Global Anarchy will prevent any world power from existing and therefore allow a non-existent entity to take away my liberty!" Rather people fret, "The Global State will dominate the world and crash everyone under its monopoly of violence until we all lose our liberties!" Minarchy is the foundation of totalitarianism and totalitarianism is the foundation of globalism. Anarchy is currently the only idea proposed that actually counters the development of globalism.

    There. FTFY. Look, I even triggered the Precious Little Snowflake that he had to cry into my rep page. Look at him whine. The delicious irony is that he accuses me of acting like its high school while he does nothing but mindlessly rant about empty-headed conspiracy theories. At least I'm not acting like its preschool.

    Why spend time on a stupid hypothetical? Might as well ask, "What would happen if alien missionaries from the planet Zurgtopia landed in your backyard and tried to convert you to the faith of Buddishaon-Theta, the One True God?" I'm not interested in fantasy here. Or sci-fi.

    Responses in bold. Voluntary communes happen all the time. There are plenty that take place now. Is it feasible that a group of people should decide to live together and treat all their property the same? Sure. But that is the power of voluntaryism. Things that the State can never make work by force will function when everyone chooses to engage in it willingly. Further, the success or failure of anarcho-communist communes has nothing to do with proving your argument, which is based on entirely subjective preferences anyway. The past does not dictate the future. We live today without the need of many institutions that the past found "necessary."

    No, because you clearly don't have an understanding of rights, anarchy, or morality. Anarchy doesn't permit for murder. Not because murder is immoral though, but because it is a violation of property rights. You are falsely conflating two things -morality and human rights- and saying the absence of an order built on one means the lack of the other. This is simply a false assumption and not true. Further, the deep irony is that you are accusing anarchy of allowing for murder while defending a system literally built upon murder. The basic claim of Statism is that the State has the power to murder you for disobeying its dictates. That is what the monopoly on violence is all about. If your claim is that all systems of government that institutionalize and legitimize murder are false then you have set a trap that destroys your own argument- because Statism is institutionalized and legitimized murder. Your own argument damns what you are attempting to defend.

    Disagree. The presence of protection services does not impose order by force. For example: I pay a group to protect my home. That means anyone coming to my home and violating my property may be met with force. But what do those police force not do? They don't go to my neighbor's house and force him or her to do what I want. Defense is not imposition. That is anarchy. Minarchy, and every other form of Statism, is when you send your "protection services" out to violently attack others, extorting from them their property in exchange for the promise that you won't kill them, THIS time. That isn't social order. It isn't even civilization. It is banditry and barbarism. Yes, and for millions of years no society of any "consequence" (a truly subjective and meaningless term based entirely on who is speaking and what they think should be valued) ever organized itself without a nobility and official aristocracy. Yet we can do it today. The past does not dictate the future. Stop trying to stall human social evolution.

    i ignored your question because it is a pointless fantasy. Just like aliens on a mission from Zurgtopia. Right and wrong have little to do with what is allowed by law and what is not. Human rights are not based on right or wrong or any moral code.

    You cannot regulate a corporation or business. Businesses are just dumb things. When you "regulate" a corporation what you are doing is telling the people in it what they can and cannot do. You violate their rights to say and do what they wish with their liberty and their property.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.

    If you can't "let it pass" then that is your problem. You should resolve it through private messages. When you use public threads you make it everyone else's problem. Just use your head is all.

Not necessarily. Which is why context is important. Here the context is given clearly in the first paragraph I quoted, which I will do here again for you:

As to the intention of the framers of the Constitution in the clause relating to "the migration and importation of persons, &c" the best key may perhaps be found in the case
