Laissez Faireholm Regional Message Board
Governments can fail. What happens when they fail? The nation is taken over, and their people is subjected to another state that may be harsher on them for ethnocentric reasons. Look at Eastern Europe for an example. The state has a strong incentive to protect their people. They do not have a strong incentive to do much else but this.
A business that has a monopoly on force wouldn't need to generate profit. It is inevitable that they would use their position has defender to extract money based on geographical location, since defense is primarily a public good that is tied to geography. And why wouldn't they? It's in their rational self interest.
"A state may form." No. A state, or state like entity WILL FORM out of nothing in any circumstance. And I'd rather have a state that is at least tolerable from a libertarian standpoint, then to risk having a less tolerable entity form out of anarchy, just as how some oppressive local kingdoms formed after the period of anarchy following the collapse of the Roman Empire...
I am continually surprised by the Moderate Party of Sweden. One article in loosely translated Swedish I read stated their support for literally privatizing all of education, a policy that I would not find pushed by any other sensible conservative party in Europe.
Hahahaha. This would be a valid point if I said that governments cannot fail. You're going to teach me about Eastern Europe? Please teach me more about the failure of the government of the USSR.
You are the only one here that has this idea that a monopoly would form. Monopolies do not naturally form.
You seem extremely risk averse. Don't go out. Terrible things may happen. Then again, terrible things may happen at home. The world was built on risk. And North America was built on even greater risk. Reducing risk is prudent, to a point. Avoiding risk is idiotic.
They did a lot of radical things in relations to other places. Privatizing roads and medicine sectors as well. One of the better liberal conservative parties out there.
California did the exact opposite of Kansas. In 2012, when California was in a dire budget crisis, voters passed a critical ballot initiative undoing the state's requirement of a two-thirds supermajority vote in the legislature to raise taxes. Through the initiative, California voters passed tax increases for everyone, including the rich, marginally increasing the sales tax while creating new income tax brackets of 10.3 percent for those who earned between $250,000 and $300,000; 11.3 percent for taxpayers who made anywhere between $300,000 and $500,000; 12.3 percent for incomes of $500,000 to $1,000,000; and 13.3 percent for all incomes above $1,000,000. The richest Californians would barely notice it, given the immense wealth in California's major economic hubs like Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the wine country.
After monitoring the results, the New Jersey Policy Perspective, a non-partisan think tank, found that California's tax increases are paying off big time. The state's coffers will gain approximately $6.8 billion in new revenue every year, all of which will be invested in public education. California saw 2.9 percent job growth in 2013, making it the third fastest-growing economy in the US. California will have an operational surplus of $9 billion by 2018, meaning even more public sector jobs created and a better economy for everyone. And because education is now a funding priority, California's schoolchildren are set up to soar above and beyond national education averages. Well-educated kids means more people in the future able to take on high-skilled, good-paying jobs.
The USSR isn't a valid comparison. How do you compare the government of the USSR to most other countries, while not perfect, are immensely preferable?
Prove why not.
Which is neither true in economics or psychology
Aly: Population growth caused Cali's boom. Meanwhile the California government continues to mismanage the water supply.
TAXATION IS THEFT SO YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID!!!!!
This would be a valid point, if I was actually comparing the USSR to something. I was not.
The real world proves this. The only monopolies are mandated.
Put on your helmet and read what I wrote. The world is full of risk. Without risk there is no gain.
You are not very good at this.
The ones created by the state, yea. Which is why we should be vigilant. But the mere existence of a state is proof of being a natural monopoly - where in the state of nature were people following the NAP before the state came along? Nowhere.
There are entire organizations dedicated to minimizing risk. Too much risk is counter-productive. If a banker always went for the more risky option, he'd be broke or fired in a free market.
You are an authoritarian. You are not a libertarian. You wish to enforce your anarchist dictatorship without the consent of the people. You want to make it very easy for another PDA to come along in AnCap and fvck us harder than the state before it. You want to subvert the rule of law that people fought for for a thousand years for a more primitive statism, one controlled by gang warfare. You don't give two craps about the non-aggression principle, as you'd believe that people will voluntarily follow it, a laughable notion to anyone who studies history, psychology, or sociology...
Minarchism is the ONLY logical outcome of libertarianism. I'm sick of all these 'anarchist' edgelords everywhere - you guys are the reason why libertarianism won't ever be a serious political movement. You guys are the problem!
