Anarcho-capitalism

Anarcho-capitalism (also known by several other names, e.g. private property anarchism) is an individualist political philosophy that advocates stateless capitalism and the provision of all goods and services—including systems of jurisdiction, law enforcement, and territorial defence—by the free market. Anarcho-capitalists argue that a pure free market system, based on justly-acquired private property, would maximise individual liberty and prosperity. For them, the only just way to acquire property is through trade, gift, or original appropriation. Anarcho-capitalism rejects the state as an aggressive entity that steals property through taxation, initiates physical force, uses its coercive powers to benefit some businesses and individuals at the expense of others, creates monopolies, and restricts trade.

Notice any familiar themes or practices? Privilege is derived from the Latin meaning “private law.”

Let’s see, oh yea,

Anarcho-capitalism rejects the state as an aggressive entity that steals property through taxation, initiates physical force, uses its coercive powers to benefit some businesses and individuals at the expense of others, creates monopolies, and restricts trade.

What anarcho-capitalism rejects sounds much like the behavior of those republicans we’ve been beating on for so many years.

Also, while it has been a long time since there has been a democratic administration it doesn’t take too much memory work to realize they behave much the same way.

If the businesses being aided are minority owned, if the monopolies are government services, if the individuals are union members, you have this crew, who are less and less like any Republicans I’ve ever known.

They accumulate power but don’t do anything with it. They are corporate raiders who takeover thriving businesses and gut them. They aren’t building anything. They have no vision for the future.
