How come we don't see more communities popping up for like-minded ancap people to live in.
I'd like to see communities like what you see with hippie communes but using ancap ideology to run the community. None of that socialist bullshit. I was thinking to purchase raw land on the outer edge of bigger cities and establish it as an RV park. This would allow people to still go to the city if they need to work.
Space rent would be very cheap like $25/month. Electricity - use solar panels or pay per KWH for grid power, water from a well and you pay for how much gallons you use. Internet would be shared community plan. Maybe you pay $1 for month for the shared internet plan or use your own private 3g/4g if you want something dedicated.
The community would be invitation only and for people that believe in ancap philosophy. Anyone causing problems in the community would be banned from the community.
Now we have a basic community of like minded individuals and can grow from there and start cutting out all the government bullshit. If you need your car repaired, you can use a mechanic in the community. The mechanic gets paid in cash. Need some household supplies? Likely someone has figured out how to get cheap supplies so you pay them for the supplies in cash and everyone wins.
Everyone wins in a situation like this because we get to cut out all the government bullshit imposed on us (taxes!).
This objection is sometimes raised, that anarcho-capitalism might not work because someone (who is wealthy?) might just try to create their own State, and anarcho-capitalism won't be able to prevent this.
I don't think this is a problem unique to anarcho-capitalism though, currently States are subject to secession or becoming worse, so anarcho-capitalism can't prevent a State from forming much more than the State can prevent being dissolved. There's somewhat of an equal problem, it seems like.
What are your thoughts on this objection that anarcho-capitalism can't work because it will just form into a State or State(s) again?
Another common criticism of anarcho-capitalism that I've seen is that people think that if people have freedom to have the ability to defend themselves, for there to be private armies, than then this will lead to warlords taking over and ancapistan would be warlords constantly at war with each other.
I think ancaps in response have argued that states are kind of like "warlords" and they sometimes go to war with each other, and often are at peace because peace can be mutually beneficial. I guess there's no real guarantee of how much war ancapistan would or wouldn't have, any more than there's that guarantee with states.
What do you think of the "warlord" objection and how do you respond to it?
What are the different schools?
What are their views?
Which do you agree with?
Someone argued that private prisons have an incentive to enslave people and that it would be bad for there to be private prisons under anarcho-capitalism
Others have argued that private prisons would be rarer and crime might be more in fines or other ways of making restitution rather than prison times
What problems exist with the idea of private prisons and what solutions do you suggest to these objections?
Unlike many libertarians, I think that big-tech is indeed acting unconstitutionally. That's because, I don't think companies like Facebook are acting independently, but as an agent of the state. It's no different than if the deep-state hired private contractors to intimidate and silence me. The fact that they are private actors is irrelevant.
Also, the left tries to use the fact that they are private actors as a bludgeon instrument to shut us up. But the truth is, even if that is so, we still have a right to call them out as being assholes who deserve to get their ass kicked.
However, unlike many other people, I personally think big tech is doing us a favor. Alternative platforms, and decentralized technologies have sprung up everywhere. All of these entrenched tech companies have the unenviable task of shutting down the free flow of information just as the information age is blowing up out of control. It is not only unworkable, but as decentralized technology improves and the size of the network grows, the cost of trying to impose internet censorship grows exponentially.
I think the State Sucks.
On memorial day patriots win had stuff pinned all day about veterans who died due to the holiday. But mods also pinned an anti taxation post too which had great comments on it. What do you guys think of this contradiction of people being pro memorial day for those who died in war yet also anti taxation? Do you think there's a contradiction? (Sorry I'm a week late for this)
All my family took the vaccine except for myself.
I've read all the horror stories.
It's been said that everyone vaccinated will die within 2 years or less.
Meaning my family will just die off in 2 years for taking this shitty cocktail. They wouldn't die off later if they never took it. They could've so easily declined it. I wouldn't be able to cope with their deaths.
Because of that, it makes me contemplate suicide. I figure after they die, I might as well sign up for euthanasia to die with them. By euthanasia, I'm just referring to the lethal injections that kill quickly, what they've used in the past for people that wish to die to exit their misery.
But if I can't get euthanized then I think I'll have to use a gun or noose to end my existence. I will be in too much agony and misery from my family's deaths to where only killing myself can help me get rid of the pain.
The saddest part is that I'm only 21 and already potentially so close to losing all family and having my life ruined.
None of them have yet to have any serious side effects but I know that mesns nothing because it's only been months. Months is short term. Years is long term.
I feel like a spiritually short lived, failed life already.
This is in response to a post in here I saw. Haven't checked here in awhile. Didn't want my response to be buried in a month old posts comment section, the people here really need to post more often.
Anyway for the guns against tyranny thing you need to draw a line in the sand that can't be crossed no matter what. Even if the boil the pot is used and the enemy only pushes a little bit we have that line in the sand to hold firm against. If the normies are too stupid and there is no widespread resistance then well "boating accidents" are a thing. Any one on here know on what the government requires to prove you lost your gun.
