    You are mistaken. (You probably also haven't read the history of police and law in Murica, chronicled in various posts and threads by AF and I) The town that eliminated the police- :) http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/local/story/2017/jul/12/without-warning-city-eliminates-police-depart/437834/

    As we've been through a bazillion times on this and threads like it, it's about voluntary. I don't mind voluntary associations to protect property, life, liberty, etc. If you think this is egalitarian and unrealistic as communism, you should examine closely constitutionalism. (not the unrealistic and irrational promises, the practice) ;)

    If you don't read the thread, of course not. Not sure why, but W/E. If you've produced the first sound legal theory behind Constitutionalism and are just hiding it from the masses for lolz, that's not very nice. ;) :D All they've got going for them is bullshit on stilts.

    Wut? You've gotten extremely, ridiculously specific and detailed answers. You just don't want to fucking read. You want to be spoon-fed. It's y'all CONstitutionalist minarchists who have yet to come up with a coherent legal theory after 200+ years of opportunity to work on it.

    No. By very definition a fiat currency is a currency imposed upon the people by government fiat, by law. All 900+ cryptocurrencies currently extant have arisen from the market, not government fiat, and therefore cannot justly be called fiat currency.

    Flawed analogy. The minarchists' "machine" still only exists on paper. It's 5% built and they tinker with it in the garage as they go along. They haven't even got an actual coherent theory to explain it in a rational way.

    Nonsense. Anarcho-capitalists are realists. (and I'm a Voluntaryist, not an ancap) Minarchists are in utter denial of praxaeology and history. They are very utopian-though not to the extent of anarcho-communists.

    You've proven yourself to be worth no significant effort. (is it my fault you lack reading and viewing comprehension skills? If you had them you would understand the system, bro) I reserve serious effort for thoughtful and intelligent adversaries (i.e. erowe). The only reason I bothered with this thread as long as I did is that it shows onlookers the failures and fallacies of statism generally and the Murican statism in particular that you endorse.

    It's the wrong question because it has nothing to do with how private courts work. You can have your own agency if you want, but if you and I don't contractually agree to be bound by said agency, your agency has no authority WRT me.

    08/03/2005Robert P. MurphyIn a recent article, I discussed the possibility of private, competing security agencies. I took for granted the background rule of law (or lack thereof), and merely made the relative argument that a monopoly institution of violence (i.e. the State) would not aid the achievement of a working consensus on legal norms, and that in fact (as history shows) government-controlled societies are certainly susceptible to civil war. In the present piece, I will elaborate on how law itself could be efficiently and equitably produced in a private setting. PRIVATE JUDGESWhether society is in anarchy or under the domination of a State apparatus, individuals will always have disputes. Although most arguments are settled between the parties themselves, some disagreements are too serious for such resolution. In such cases, the disputants (in anarchy) can turn to a judge, who is simply a person who agrees to render an opinion on their dispute. Although many anarchist theorists link private judges with enforcement agencies in their expositions, we should keep in mind that the two are conceptually distinct. In its essence, a private judicial ruling is just that—one person’s opinion as to who is right, and what he or she is owed, in a given dispute. One major difference between private and State judges is that the former only entertain cases when both parties submit to the “jurisdiction” of the judge. (In contrast, one or both parties in a State court case may strongly object to the judge and/or jury who will decide the issue.) Cynics of private law may consider this proposal as ridiculous—the very idea that a rapist or bank robber would agree to plead his case before a third party, ha! However, this glib dismissal overlooks the fact that most disputes in modern commercial society are not between an “obvious” innocent and an “obvious” malefactor. Rather, it is often the case that both parties to a dispute genuinely believe themselves to be in the right, and would be happy to make their cases in front of a disinterested third party. Another consideration is that, without the government monopoly and selection of judges based on political pull and demagogic appeal, a crop of professional judges would arise who were, well, quite judicious. (Any unmarried female judges would quite truly be the fairest maidens in the land.) When reading their previous opinions on cases in which they had expertise, people would recognize their excellence, and say, “Wow, that was a great ruling! When I first heard the evidence, I thought the plaintiff was right, but after Judge Barnett explained it with his analogies, the defendant is obviously not guilty.” In anarchy, people would demand judicial services for all the reasons that people desire law itself: They would want to satisfy their desire for abstract justice, but they would also want to foster predictable business relationships, as well as enjoy a good reputation among their neighbors. Let’s consider a concrete example. Suppose Mark Johnson owns a store and he breaks the arm of Gary Owens, a customer. Owens proceeds to tell all his friends (and anyone else who will listen) that he was minding his own business when Johnson attacked him. Now in the standard view (and even to some extent that promoted by anarcho-capitalist writers), unless Owens belongs to a protection agency himself, he has no recourse. But this is simply not true. It is bad for business if Owens runs around telling people he was brutally attacked, and if Johnson does nothing to rebut these charges. If people give any validity to Owens’ story, they will shop elsewhere. Even beyond the pecuniary aspects, if Johnson is at all a normal human being, he will feel uncomfortable at social events if people are whispering about the tale behind his back. Consequently, Johnson will publicly invite Owens to bring his charges to any reputable judge who ...
