Statist exhortation: Don't Force Anarchy on Me!



"Don't force anarchy on me, bro!"


To advocate anarchism is not to advocate a system. It’s simply to maintain that aggression is unjust, and to recognize that the state commits aggression. If you oppose rape, that does not mean you have to show that “non-rape” or “a world without non-rape” is “workable.” You oppose rape and other private crimes because they are crimes. Likewise, if you recognize the state is criminal, you have to oppose it too. - Stephan Kinsella

The concept of forcing self-ownership (voluntaryism) on someone is ridiculous. How do you force "leaving alone" or the Non Aggression Principle on someone? They aren't forced to pay for it; they aren't forced to work for you; the only time the voluntaryist condones non-consensual force is in self-defense.

The only people that should be worried about a free society are those that benefit from force or fraud; and not even all of them (for instance, people that have a genuine need for other people's help would still be helped by their fellow man; shysters and cheats would have to worry). (DBR)

In the society that anarchists envision, statist could voluntarily associate and have a State. The external "foreign" policy of anarchy is panarchy - allowing everyone to live their own vision of a good life. [HB]
