Laissez Faireholm Regional Message Board
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!
Taking into account the much higher cost of living poverty is much worse in ultra big government California than it is smaller government (but still big government Kansas).
Someone who sincerely thinks that California is better governed than Kansas has some serious problems with their judgement.
Although Kansas has a lot wrong with it - after all it has a much bigger government (in relation to its economy) than South Dakota and some other States.
As for the idea that government schools do a good job of educating most people in cities such as L.A. - that is nuts, just nuts.
California depends on taxing a small minority of people - who are presently making a lot of money due to the Credit Bubble economy pushed by the Federal Reserve (as reflected in their Capital Gains).
When the bubble economy bursts - California will be finished.
The Dark Ages were indeed a terrible time - but Roman civilisation has been in DECLINE for centuries before it collapsed.
The Empire was a time of stagnation - nothing much new was invented, and in the later centuries of the Empire things actually decayed.
The new states that grew up in Europe had many grievous faults - but they also had advantages over the Empire.
In 877 it was formally accepted by Charles the Bald that even a King of France could not take land from one family and give it to another.
That was not isolated to France - it became normal to think in a "Feudal" way that government was LIMITED that there were things that government was not ALLOWED to do.
No Roman Emperor (or Islamic ruler or Oriental Despot) would accept such limits on their power.
Under the Roman Empire ordinary people were unarmed and untrained.
In "Feudal" Europe most people (and most people were NOT serfs) were used to weapons - owning them and using them.
And the idea of "the law" was that it applied even to the King himself - that the law was not just the "will of the ruler" as with Roman Law.
Building out of nothing at the end of the Dark Ages - medieval Europe made vast progress - there were inventions, the European lands of the 1400s were vastly different to the lands of the 900s or 1000s(there was no stagnation).
Europe slipped back in its legal ideas - with the return to the Roman Law concept of law being the "will of the ruler" and nothing being beyond the ruler.
However, in some places (such as England) the idea that the law was NOT the "will or the ruler of rulers" remained - the liberty of the subject, unknown in the Roman Empire.
See Chief Justice Sir Edward Coke (of Doctor Bonham's case and so on) and (even more) Chief Justice Sir John Holt of the 1688 period.
The state is not a business.
The only corporate monopolies are created by the state.
I don't want to impose anything on anybody. That is the entire point of voluntaryism. You're the authoritarian one here. You are completely oblivious to what is going on, and have this warped idea of what government is and how it functions. What is laughable is your belief that a government will limit itself to a few functions. You are religious. And statism is your religion.
Do you not know how to scroll? It wasn't that long ago that I addressed risk.
Your argument is so weak, you resort to namecalling and attacking a strawman.
I don't want to force anything on anyone. That is the entire point of voluntaryism.
I never claimed that everyone will voluntarily follow the NAP. I have specifically pointed out that not everyone will follow it, multiple times. Strawman much?
Minarchism is illogical. No logical and rational thought process comes to the conclusion that a few should have rights others don't, to rule over them, to extort them, kidnap them and murder them.
There are way too few anarchists to do anything. The problem is the statists.
How is everyone today?
The central problem for anarcho capitalism is the military one - and it is a problem that must be thought about seriously.
I am not saying the problem is impossible to solve (I just do not know), but it is not solved by the half baked military thinking (and false history) of the Rothbardians.
The military problem - how a society would be defended against attack by technologically advanced and (more importantly) utterly ruthless, enemies needs to be thought about seriously.
By the way - a short version of what I said above.
To use the test of even the arch statist John Rawls - I would rather be an random person in Kansas than a random person in high-cost-of-living California.
And when the Credit-Bubble (Federal Reserve generated) economy bursts - California is going to get worse, a lot worse.
I would suggest perhaps merging our regions, mine seems to be dead, and this region would probably like 19 new members?
