    Yup. I was there. I second that.

      In a free land, these types of people would get no aid, because they wouldn't earn it. They wouldn't survive, but it'd be their right to act as they please. Those truly enlightened would have no problems adjusting and be as they're meant to be. This is why ancap society needs to be a gradual persuasion, because a controlled, brainwashed public that is used to relying on the government for all aid tend to act this way. They're like a domesticated animal that has been used to a hand feeding them, without it, they panic.

      Pigs released in the wild eventually become fierce boars though.

      If you can look around at all the fattened, weakened, pacified, hormonally manipulated herd of cattle, and still claim that statism is good for society, then I don't know what to say.

        Society would never have evolved if humanity is doomed to barbarism without the government there to tame us. The state has created the very demographic that you site as illustrating the horrible truth of anarchy.
        The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

            Personally, what ya'll are calling anarchy, I call freedom. I believe that SMALL governments on the state level are a good thing. Don't like the government in your state? Move. Federal government of today is the real baddie here. It disgusts me what they get away with, and what the people LET them get away with. I wish more folks would open their eyes. I wish folks would stop mindlessly voting the party line and electing these greed hungry lunatics in Washington.

            I can only be so lucky I live in the sticks and have the ability to provide for my self and family %100. Ya'll in the cities? Ya'lls screwed if it gets bad. I suggest you move. Like... yesterday.

              Only when people are ready to lay down their own lives to get justice for future generations will anything change. Look at the 99% movement. Probably the biggest attempt at revolution the United States has seen in a long time and it was suppressed and beaten down to nothing. Many people see the injustice of the government but without the sheer selflessness that it takes, nothing can be done.

              People are lazy and cowards, no wonder most are just fine with the status quo.

                "Fighting for peace" is the biggest paradox there is. I just don't believe you can create a better world when you start with bloodshed.

                  Ugh. The 99% movement was a joke. A bunch of people in all the big cities around the country protesting....? They all had different reasons. there was so leader, they really didnt have a cuase and it turned into the "cool" thing to do.

                  What people need to understand is... Just because they say it's the law... Doesnt make it the law. there is only one law in this land. The guidelines spelled out in it are fair, just and equal. That is my only law. Whats YOUR law?

                  Unfortunately, Yogabare, I don't think we will see a change in this country without bloodshed. I personally believe it will come down to goverment/military against the citizens. Sounds disgusting, right? Well, Germans were completely clueless to the nazi take over. It was just "politcis." Then, suddenly, the man that saved them from themselves turned out to be an evil dictator. Of course, no one saw it coming because it happened so slowly. Well, look around... Don't be a german.

                    Think of all the times there's been revolutions and the powers that be are just replaced by more powers that be.

                    Many of these big political movements started out with ideals. But ideals can only become reality if the people implementing can live up to them. Most people tend to take the moral highground and just blame others. Seeing a splinter in other people's eyes and not seeing a beam in their own etc. For as long as that happens we'll never replace anything with anything better.

                    Hence I go with Gandi's "BE the change you wish to see in the world". Trying to change others is an exercise in futility.

                    Edit to note: A lot of times, people's impulse to fight something (whether it's another person / another race / a government) is just a displaced attempt at fighting something within themselves. Homophobia is an example of that.

                    • OK, I came back, looked at the last several comments, saw the predictable names: Derb..., Yoga, Kenn and decided to do what Rojo did. It is too ugly to stay.

                          People that work for what they have tend not to riot and pillage as much as those that are used to having everything provided for them. That is what I meant. Without the nanny state there would be a lot less of those types of people around.

                            Eh, there would still probably be a good amount of them. They would just band together. I honestly dont see an enlightened society being possible without some divine intervention. Lots of people are just born bad or inherit it from their parents.

                              And if there was no state to stop them, the decent people (who would no doubt outnumber the losers) would deal with the losers. An enlightened society isn't really the goal of anarchy, there is no goal with anarchy. The result of anarchy though is absolute freedom, for better or for worse. I would rather err on the side of too much freedom than too much regulation.

                              • Remember, Yoga, how this country came to be. I agree with you, there is a risk that the replacement could be worse. But, we have to stand up for ourselves at SOME point (which I believe to be now.) Look at what they're doing to our food system! Transportation, work force. This country is just fucked due to what this "government" has done starting WAYYY back in the day. Not just in the last 10 years.

                                "Be the change you wish to see in the world" is something I live by. I want to see changes in the food system. What do I do with my life? Grow and raise food not only for my family but for other families as well. I want folks to understand why the right to owning firearms is so important, so I speak about it. Etc etc etc.

                                We cannot just talk about it. You have to do it. We have to stand up for ourselves in any way we can. I practice civil disobedience every single day. Could I go to prison for what I do? Oh yes. Am I afraid? I'm not anymore. Do not fear them. That is how we become slaves.

                                Essentially, I agree with what you're saying. I just want people to be more proactive about it if they see what is going on. You can do something in your own way.


                                Anna5.... Please go away. No one cares if you're here. No one cares if you comment. You've done a bang up job of making a complete ass of yourself. No one cares about your ridiculous, worthless degree. No one cares of your heritage. Maybe I WOULD have cared if you weren't such a disgusting bigot.
