    I've also noticed that Burning Man is used as an example of successful anarchy. I'm beginning to think that our "anarchists" smoked a little too much Wacky tobacky in their lifetime. :o ;)

    It definitely seems to be happening… slowly but surely. And it is prophesied.

    I used to think Uber was great, until one of their drivers charged my debit card for a "cancellation fee" even though I didn't actually book the ride, I was merely inquiring about it. Made me never want to use them again and delete the app.

    I knew someone was going to say that. So basically what you're saying is, because our system is being subverted and turned into something it was never supposed to be, we should throw out the baby with the bathwater and go to a system that is also going to end up subverted and turned into something it was never supposed to be... Except that in your AnCapLand, you are starting out without a true foundation, but with an illogical, contradictory idea that won't work longer than a few days. Makes loads of sense. :o

    Ha ha… That kind of reminds me of a movie I saw recently, about a family that lived in an underground vault for a few decades then finally came out into a completely different world. I can't remember the name of it, but it's with Brendan Fraser. Natural Citizen knows what I'm talking about. :)

    Once again, you guys are misunderstanding the objections here. You're still going to have authority, and coercion, so one of the objections is that the type of wonderful anarchy that you guys want is unattainable, it aint going to happen. So if you're going to have "government", it then comes down to what is better… having a limited amount of government for only certain things, and a system of checks and balances… Or an unrealistic system that will inevitably end up as might makes right? That's pretty much Ron Paul's position, do you know more than Ron Paul? Also, my point from the very beginning was that it's never going to happen anyway. So all of this is a waste of time, because it's not going to happen… Unless maybe there's a nuclear war and the majority of the world is wiped out, including all the current powers. But then you're back to the scenario I went over earlier, the type of anarchy you want is illogical, so it will always end up as might makes right. Again, this reminds me of the communists who always insist that communism just hasn't been tried the right way yet! :)

    Oh wow. The Ariana Grande event was a pretty obvious one, iyam. Thank you for bringing up this stuff that of course we won't hear from the media. The "coincidences" are never ending…. Sheesh. ETA: Are you sure that it's the same 'Live Nation'?

    I think you both completely misunderstood why he brought that up. But I'm sure he will reply later, since it was his point. You must realize though, that the 'traditional' anarchists say the same thing, they see capitalism as completely incompatible with anarchism. Anyway, thank you A Son of Liberty for your reply.

    This thread kind of went in a different direction… But I want to get back to a couple earlier posts. I would put it a different way. I don't own you and you don't own me. I don't own your stuff and you don't own my stuff. I also agree, of course, that the government doesn't own you or me. So I agree, if we are talking about the proper relationship of man to man, in regard to force. That said, imo if you're basing an entire political philosophy on that one point, then you're going to have problems, because that is a very incomplete view of reality.

    I disagree. The real threat comes from subversive people within our government and the actual powers behind the scenes....not your average Joe schmo leftist. There's more to be said about this, but…I'll leave it at that for now.

    That goes against what the founders said. You disagree with the idea that the people have the right to throw off a tyrannical government and institute new government?

    You rarely address anything that is said by those who disagree with you. Instead of tired ad hominems, why not refute his point that Anarchy and Capitalism are oxymorons in application? Definitions are important, or else all this debating is a waste of time. In fact, sometimes people who are arguing actually agree with each other… but the problem is they're on two different pages regarding definitions.

    That's pretty much what I've been saying. Some of the anarchists' comments here remind me of communists who always say, "but Communism just hasn't been tried the right way yet!" Earlier on this thread I said that I'm all for trying it, because it sounds good in theory… but the more I learn about it and think about it, the more I can see that like communism, it'll never work.

    This is over a week late, but I wanted to reply to your neg rep comment. I actually was here in 2007, under a different screenname/account, (wildflower) but that's besides the point. I simply have a different opinion on your actions regarding the whole Gunny thing. But I don't feel like arguing about it any further, so that's all.

    Wait a second... I want to be clear on your position. Are you saying that it always boils down to might makes right because of corrupt people, but in your view might makes right is false? Or do you believe that "might makes right" is the actual reality? To put it another way, do you believe in natural law / divine law?

    I don't think it's the "food" itself... But all the stuff that's added to it, like salt, sugar, fat, cheese. A lot of people don't realize this, but those things are actually addictive. Those ingredients trigger something in your brain that make you crave more greasy, salty fatty foods....which is why when you drive by a McDonald's, your mouth might start to water. But is that addiction really worth it when what you're actually doing is putting all sorts of crap into your body, clogging your arteries, causing obesity, etc? I have a cousin who ate tons of fast food for years (in fact, he and his wife met when they both worked at a fast food place, she is obese) and ate the SAD. He suddenly died of a heart attack at age 47. It was tragic.. I know people always say this about someone who died, but he really was one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Another thing that many people don't seem to realize is that healthy food is delicious... or it I should say it can be, it's all about how you prepare it. Ever since I went plant-based, I've gotten into cooking, trying all sorts of new interesting recipes, and I'm telling you, I've had so many dishes that are both healthy AND absolutely delicious. :) And I don't have to worry about getting cancer, heart disease, or getting fat... and of course no animals are harmed when you eat a plant-based diet. I've said this before, but I'll say it again… it was without a doubt one of the best life decisions I ever made. I'd say it's number two.

    That's very vague. Who decides? And what do you do if the person you're in a dispute with says "to hell with your 'consequences.'"? It seems to me that it will eventually boil down to might makes right. Which is the very thing you guys claim to be against. Sounds great but it didn't answer either of my questions. :)

    Once again, we don't want to hear someone else's ideas in a long winded, poorly formatted wall of text. We want to hear what you guys genuinely believe, in your own words. A number of questions have been avoided. For example, a few pages back I asked a son of liberty if he considered private police, private courts or arbitration to be a form of authority. He didn't answer, in fact I don't think he's been back to this thread since then. I also asked how you would handle criminals or people who reject your private enforcement agencies, if you claim to be against coercion? I get the feeling that anarchists believe that if we just get rid of the state, all of a sudden everyone is going to be peaceful and virtuous, similar to how communists believe we can all hold hands and sing Kumbaya. But that's not realistic, that goes directly against human nature. So, are you really against all authority and coercion? Or are you guys only against authority and coercion of "the state"?
