Would you call yourself a libertarian ?


Would you call yourself an anarcho-capitalist, a market-anarchist, or something similar?

I would call myself an adult. Anarcho-capitalism may be the closest term to my philosophy that is more widely accepted.

Do you think that the government is an illegitimate organization and that taxation is theft ?

No--it is legitimate. It is the law-making process that creates legality, and it is legality that creates and sustains the PR that allows them to be such fantastically successful thieves. Taxation is theft.

Do you think police and justice should be handled by private companies?

In a moral society, it would be handled by anyone who wants to handle it, just as lawn mowing is done. Anyone who wanted to hire that out would be free to do so. You can't force the delegation of adulthood.

Do you think landowners should be free to completely secede from the US ?

Irrelevant. If you identify with the political system, then you deserve what the majority will do to you.


New to philosophy, I'm learning that adulthood is the state of mind where you give yourself permission to live your life and are willing to take responsibility for your actions. Looking to find more adults in the world.
