Mmmm....fresh mea....err, I mean, greetings and salutations! :wink: Another An-Cap, though I came from a decidedly right-wing background. As the others have said, beware the trolls as they abound here.

O.P: Hi. :D
I believe once one is a voluntariest, nothing is incompatible with it. If a group of morons want to voluntarily live in some socialist commune, no other person in the voluntariest society would stop them.

Howdy.

Many labels in your intro... so, what is it that prevents you from just skipping all the stages and getting straight to anarchy?

I really should. I think that's where I'm inevitably headed, ideologically, and I guess I'm just trying to grab onto everything I can on the way.  :P

Oh yeah btw I'm an anarcho-capitalist, and I used to have more left-anarchist leanings. These days its all about the Non-Aggression Principle. If you havent heard of it check it out.
Reminds me of Locke's Harm Principle. I think I used to subscribe to NAP in essence, but these days I'm a little skeptical about taking that at face value. Probably because of the unsustainability of it. I don't think theoretical anarchism is unworkable, but if it's governed by non-aggression, I feel like aggression will inevitably arise and then you'll have no tools or organization to fight it.

So if I tell you to play "Hide and Go Fuck Yourself", that doesn't mean anything?

You come on a libertarian board and question the NAP? That is cute.

just because YOU might subscribe to it, doesn't mean that everyone else does or would.

No. Most don't.
Subscribing to the NAP is however, many peoples DEFINITION of being a libertarian. We can't have a free society if people believe they can force others to do things. period. People who want to use force on others who are not hurting anybody are evil.

I agree, I don't think government is the only threat to freedom though. >_> It's not that I disagree with NAP as much as I'm skeptical of what it implies.
