Libertarian Regional Message Board
I accept that absolute freedom exists only in pure anarchy, however this leaves one ginormous flaw. There is no one to ensure that generally accepted 'rights' are protected. As history proves, any state in anarchy will not remain so for long; every power vacuum has been filled by some political entity, often through the use of brute force. This is the basis for my belief in a libertarian state; one that is very limited in scope and exists solely to protect individual rights (defense from foreign aggression, police force that protects and serves, courts to settle disputes, etc.). When it comes to an individual's decisions that don't have any direct effect on anyone else, the guberment should have no authority.
I personally struggle with this question myself. On the one hand, I am concerned that it may not be possible for "small government societies" to avoid eventually becoming "large government societies", but on the other hand, I think any true AnCap society larger than a city-state would be at high risk of being regarded as a safehouse by organized crime and a "wretched hive of scum and villainy" by statists and socialist libertarians alike. I hope a time may come when a large, peaceful, prosperous, low-crime anarchy could realistically exist, but I don't think we're there yet.
Zomia may be an example of a region that once had anarchist societies.
climate change is a swindle.
changed my mind.
"Anarchy" and "anarchism" are terms often used by anti private property in the means of production people - Black Flaggers (collectivists by another name).
"Anarcho capitalism" is better - people who shy away from the word "capitalism" trouble me (yes it was coined as an insult by socialists - but that is not the reason that some people shy away from it, they are hostile to be associated with factory owners and so on).
However, I remain unconvinced by the military arguments.
I am open to being convinced - but the writings of Rothbard and co are laughable on military matters.
The IRU Founder and Chancellor of Conservative Idealism says:
"Some members of Libertarian appear interested, but I have not yet contacted ThinkPads - until this telegram, anyway. To get you up to speed, ThinkPads, we're wondering whether your region would like to join an organization dedicated to defending regions from authoritarian invasion - it doesn't exist yet, but with the support of enough regions, we can create it. I'm aware that your region has been victimized by the Red Fleet and I would like to prevent such a thing from ever happening again."
My only concern is that if nations leave to assist invaded regions, will they need the regional password to rejoin, or can I allow them entry manually?
Please vote in the new poll regarding this issue.
As long as no-one but you knows the password, the region should be secure. I would imagine he pictures our region as one that would be defended, but yes, if anyone leaves the region, they would need the password to get back in.
Also, the IRU is a member of REATO.
Depending on how it is implemented, I could support this. But I don't think we should be sending anyone out, the password gives us better security than they could. The downside with passwords is, no new nations will arrive to the region. Some residents will die off, and our community will dwindle.
As long as The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads keeps the password to himself (which I still support) a defensive alliance wouldn't really help us.
The best security would be for The Commonwealth of Whipjangle to turn off the WA delegate region control, and then no raid can be successful. But that seems unlikely at this point. So if we dwindle and The Commonwealth of Whipjangle doesn't come back, we should probably do a re-found.
There are worse things than overbearing big government and the power of the state? Seeing as the worst things in human history have been a result of both, I would say in reply "not much."
Reduced government is increased freedom, increased government is decreased freedom.
