The Polling Pit / Re: The 6 types of Libertarians, which are you?
« on: July 03, 2006, 10:00:59 PM »
I just saw this and voted. I voted before reading the explainations, but was pleased to find I voted correctly. I guess my understanding of the nomenclature is correct. I chose Free Market Reparationist. I consider myself an Anarcho-Capitalist, but I'm also realistic and practical, so I'd be happy to work within the state rubrick to achieve greater freedom if I thought it might succeed. I grew up with great reverence for the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. My reading of history revealed that even the signers of said documents didn't adhere to their own rules, so my hopes that pieces of paper could limit the government's power were dashed. Sometimes I consider the possibility that the only way real liberty could be achieved is if some great and powerful leader established geographical borders through force, then acted as a benevolent dictator, allowing the people of the so-called "country" to live in anarchy, but otherwise merely putting on the display of a state and military force. Fat chance.

The Free State project might achieve a sort of limited minarchy, and I'd be happy to participate if I were unmarried, but my wife wont move to NH. My only skepticism is that the police will relenquish their authority. It might be necessary to fire a lot of them and bar them from returning, then recruit new officers and train them differently. The police nowadays treat all citizens as potential criminals or as inferior creatures who are either too weak to protect ourselves. Just look at the story out of Nashua.
