Who Knew?

Wow. The Urban Dictionary just defined what I am.

Dude! I didn't know there was a name for it.
Anarcho Capitalist
A person whose philosophy is based on the idea of individual sovereignty, and a prohibition against theft, coercion and fraud. It sees the only just basis for law as arising from private property norms and an unlimited right of contract between free and sovereign individuals. From this basis, anarcho-capitalism rejects the state as an unjustified monopolist and systematic aggressor against sovereign individuals, and embraces anti-statist laissez-faire capitalism. Anarcho-capitalists would aim to protect individual liberty and property by replacing government monopoly, which is involuntarily funded through theft by taxation, with private, competing businesses that use physical force only in defense of liberty and property against aggressors. Hence, they believe that all goods and services, including law, order, and security, should be supplied through the mechanism of a free market.

Anarcho capitalists know that when you keep all of what you produce, you have an incentive to produce more, thus the whole of society benefits greatly from each individuals inherent greed.
Okay....this makes sense. This is where they got it:  Ludwig Von Mises Institute



  1. Doh! You must be kidding? Anarchist Utopia? Free market law (how much will that decision cost your honor?) Competing private armies? Sounds more like the Godfather than capitalism.

  2. Yeah, so much worse than enslavement by Government.

    P.S. Only idiot progressives believe in "Utopia".

  3. The function of government in this scenario is to provide a system of courts to enforce contracts and protect us from foreign aggression by maintaining a core cadre of armed forces that can be used to train a large army for wartime, which would then be immediately disestablished at the end of hostilities.

    Hmm...sounds something like what our Founding Fathers envisioned, doesn't it?

  4. Problem with government, as we have doesn't stay "limited". By it's very nature it grows, and grows and grows. Despite our brilliant Founding Fathers' vision...look what we have today: A totally out of control dictatorial Central Government that does not believe anything is outside their sphere of regulation or taxation or control or oversight.

  5. Anarcho-capitalist sounds like a much better fit than min-archist....and I'm just too nice a guy to be a pirate.
