We should all be a nation of one individual. No need to have states to try to hold us together.

its a bit idealistic, but I am very much an individual and fit a bit into many groups, but not enough. So, I get what you are saying. Things such as group-think and peer-pressure and keeping up with the Jones are nasty things to me. I don't want to be put in a box. or forced to accept all of the tenents of any one group.

That may be your desire, but I have the right to disagree and band together with other property owners to establish a Covenant Community, and secure a private border against ideologies and activities that detract from Human flourishing, and that oppose the protection of my rights.

I wish to disassociate with the delusional ideology of extreme Individualism.

I wish to affirm the Human nature of a guardian of children, community builder, group-survivor and promoter of supportive culture.

The rejection of the State is not the same as the rejection of a National identity.

The rejection of the State is not the same as the rejection of voluntary forms of Government.

Anarchism is the rejection of the Archon, the aggressive overlord. Anarchism is not Lawlessness or the prohibition on Voluntary Organization and Natural Hierarchy.

| extreme Individualism what the hell is THAT?! That's a bit like saying a person is too healthy or too smart or too attractive. Sir, you are being TOO you! I think your wording may be off. Perhaps you meant acting weird just to get attention - as in an attention-whore or a drama queen who has a purple mohawk and walks around in thongs to get attention so she can scream "I'm offended"?

I read the article. I thought it would expound more on the ideas you mentioned above.

What's the line between a covenant community and government? What's the line between covenant community and extreme individualism?

I never advocated for lawlessness. The nonaggression principle is key.

That's the term he used first to describe mine. He never defined it. I'm trying to get a chat going but he hasn't replied. Though he's an ancap he believes in some sort of collective that's still a bit more than the socalled extreme individualism i purpose.
