Anarchy Regional Message Board
Most of the state's actions during the 19th century were to give preferences to certain corporations over another, ergo bastardizing the idea of the free market in order to incentivize the Hamiltonian idea of "progressive industralization." An authentic free-market would not favor the bourgeois that similarly gained a lot of power during that time period, but work against it. The Jeffersonians knew that much and worked to prevent it - but ultimately caved in.
"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country." -TJ
Also, the Gilded Age was not laissez-faire capitalism, and definitely not what market anarchists and market minarchists, and even many ancaps, wish to regress to. It was, for the proletariat, much better than both today and the 19th century as real wages increased sharply along with the standard of living, and liberal presidents did much in the power to cut subsidies. But it wasn't perfect.
The latter group that you are talking about aren't confused at all, they simply define capitalism differently. (As for the record, I am a left-libertarian minarchist, or left wing classical liberal, whichever works).
How do I turn a civil rights love fest to a anarchy.
Hello everyone! I'm new here with a new nation. Look forward to being part of this community.
I have a question. When I created this nation it asked me what kind of government I wanted it to be, and I chose "anarchic", which I imagine should tell the game my nation is stateless. Yet my overview page talks about my "state-planned" economy lol. I take it NationStates is not very anarchist friendly with its game mechanics. Or is there some way to change this stuff through issues or settings?
You are playing a game called NationStates. Your nation type is determined by how you answer your issues, but there's no getting away from the fundamental premise of the game, which is to build a state. Answering your issues like an anarchist is likely to create some kind of centrally planned bureaucratic nanny state.
Nations with the "Anarchy" classification are described as being warzone wastelands ruled by roving gangs like a cross between the worst areas of Somalia and The Road Warrior. They typically have high morality rates, poor health outcomes, low rates of intelligence and education and often unfettered capitalist policies as well.
I realize the name of the game and that the overwhelming majority of players would create states, but I assumed when I saw "anarchic" in the government type that it also allowed for stateless options. I thought you could build a nation that operates in the context of a statist government or one that operates on the principles of stateless anarchist organization; the name of the game just reflecting what most people would make. I realize that's not the case now.

I see. The developers of the game consider anarchy in the dictionary sense (chaos) and the not the philosophical, political sense. That's a shame.
Yeah, it's dictionary anarchy. Imo the closest classification to philosophical anarchism is Left Wing Utopia.
