Thread: Anarcho-Capitalist Reference List

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Anarcho-Capitalist Reference List

    My bookmark tab being way too full and disorganized gave me the idea to start this collection. Scrolling through hundreds of bookmarks is a pain. For some reason I never bothered to make new folders lol.

    Having some of these important works all in one place for easy reference might be useful. A lot of these are good resources for FAQs. There might even be something new even for veteran Voluntaryists . A lot of these could probably share categories but I attempted to separate them as best as possible for easier reference.

    Great resource!

    No Treason is a total must-read. Spooner was so out of this world, so ahead of his time, people are still trying to catch up.
    "When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system's game. The establishment will irritate you - pull your beard, flick your face - to make you fight, because once they've got you violent then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don't know how to handle is non-violence and humor. "

    I haven't read no treason yet, but I will add it to my list now that you recommend it so strongly. I really admire him because not only was he a great philosopher, but he was also great entrepreneur.

    I finished that earlier this year. That guy was seriously so far beyond his time. Not only was he a great thinker, he really set the bar for non-cooperation and civil disobedience.

    I would say that Atlas Shrugged belongs on the list. You have Child's rebuttal, which is, fwiw, not anti-objectivist. In order to get its context, it is worth reading Atlas Shrugged. This lays out the philosophy of anarchism. While Rand herself was a minarchist, this is merely a failure in her imagination.

    I kept the list to things I have had a chance to read and works that are available for free online. There are a lot of free books on www.mises.org but I wanted to keep the list composed of short essays and other *relatively* short works. I'll probably add a book section eventually but my primary goal was to make a list of good intro and FAQ material for people to easily share, hoping the works would spark people's interest enough to read whole books.

    I haven't read Atlas Shrugged yet, I plan on reading it eventually though. It will probably be a while since my reading list is quite large and my main interest right now is economics and stateless order.

    NP.

    I figured these short videos are easier to spread, especially for the commonly repeated objections. People are more likely to watch a 5 or 10 min video than to read the equivalent amount of text. The whole chapter is available online, but iirc it is over an hour long.
