WHY ANARCHY SEEMS SO SILLY

Statists, and by that I mean most people, are confused by the concept of anarchy because it is so far removed from the status quo. People say things like ” the government gives us roads, schools, police, wars, firemen and stuff” without realizing that doesn’t preclude the concept of eliminating other functions of government.

(then we can get around to talking about the basic stuff)

THERE ARE THOSE THAT WILLINGLY TAKE ON THE YOKE

And there are those who would rather not be turned into cat food.

THE TERRORISTS HAVE LOST

Or at least have not won. Whatever terrible shit anericans might do to one another out of fear benefits “the terrorists” nothing. Aside from the few true psycopaths amongst them, nost “terrorists have a goal, generally of getting the us government out of their lives. They might have a good laugh at seeing granny get groped but they would mostly just rather neveer see another us tank

TSA

It is quite distressing to see how many people buy in to the idea that tsa security measures are enhancing “security”. They believe that they are sacrificing a little liberty for safety. A ma jor problem with this is what a narrow part of their lives they securing. Given locked and armed cockpits the most damage a terrorist could do would be to kill the small number og people on a plane. Given that, why bother with an airplane? A bus or line at disneyland would do. (Please note that the wtc was an unexpected dissaster. It is not possible for anyone to have predicted that the towers woukd have collapsed. And oh yeah, locked cockpits.). So no, we can pretty much do away with security at airports ( bomb sniffing dogs probably give a good roi), we are nit made safer even with x-raying carry ons.

the universe is infinite

as near as we can tell. So don’t hinder your neighbor. Unless he/she’s hindering others. Physically speaking. Sticks and stones.

WHY WELFARE DOESN’T HELP

Whenever someone receives something from the pool of scarce resources without contributing something, the result is that everyone is made poorer. The path to wealth is creation, not depletion.

PRICE ESCALATION

Prices can only rise as the ability to pay them exists.  If the price of a product/service rises beyond the capacity of consumers to pay, than the price/quality must fall or the product will become unavailable.
