No one inherently deserves authority over another. Authority should only exist when freely earned. The current structures do not operate this way, however. If hundreds of years ago men signed a document removing your right to choose who you want to protect your property, how can that be legitimate? Government, if it is to exist, … [Read more…]
Government is not merely systematic violence, it starts as an idea. The idea is that there needs to be a central power that orders people to interact in a certain way. The end of government does not come in facing off against the individuals inhabiting it, but cultivating a new idea of liberty to supplant … [Read more…]
Money is a medium of exchange for products and services. It necessarily must originally evolve from a commodity. This commodity should be easily divisible and nonperishable, such as gold or silver. Today we have a fiat money, one that is only backed by the guns of government, and not by the wants of everyday individuals. … [Read more…]
How do we get from here to there? Agorism, education, civil disobedience, political action; each benefits from the others. Awareness of slavery is crucial to squashing it. A problem with agorism is that most see underground markets as illegitimate and scary. Political action, while derided by agorism, can serve as a method of change, albeit … [Read more…]

The problem is not merely that they don’t understand, but that often times they will refuse to. Favoring voluntary interaction over what ultimately amounts to slavery is not absurd.

A monopoly is an organization with an enforced right to produce a certain product or service. Another company cannot compete, not because it lacks the ability in and of itself, but because it is forcibly stopped by the guns of government. Without competition the quality of the good served has no pressure to increase. Even … [Read more…]
General ignorance, sloth, and widespread belief in the necessity of government, stem not from western philosophy, but from an inherently corrupt education system. Mull this over for a moment: Government educating the masses. The monopoly on legitimatized force, teaching the adults of tomorrow how and what to think. Disturbing. Education should be a liberation of … [Read more…]
If a better system exists, why should tyranny be afflicted upon individuals? Be it slavery or the unnecessary evil of government, it is senseless to continue a horrible system.
“In truth, no man knows enough about any worth-while subject to entitle him to feel that he has the last word on that subject.”— Napoleon Hill In order to achieve a free society, you must understand liberty.Afterwards to merely sit on the sidelines, though, is fruitless.To win the game you must play. 1.
