  Anarchocapitalism & Libertarianism vs. Liberty | Take Liberty
The arguments for anarchy and/or anarchocapitalism – and the arguments for limited government or constitutional government – both seem to bypass liberty on the road to an application.
All the arguments that I have read against anarchocapitalism are brilliant at demonstrating, by reference to human realities and logic, that anarchy, in any form, will only result in a "might is right" situation – rule by brute force, massive corruption, and no agreed-upon, standardized, enforceable definition of rights (law).
Anarchocapitalism clearly depends on dropping context, and fantasizing that "somehow" it would work.

 Joseph Salerno - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While attending Boston College as an undergraduate, Salerno encountered an article written by Murray Rothbard and was converted to what Salerno describes as "the pure libertarian position...
anarchocapitalism." It was this experience that Salerno credits with piquing his interest in the Austrian School.
Upon his graduation from Boston College in 1972, Salerno enrolled in the graduate economics program at Rutgers University from which he received his M.A. in 1976 and his Ph.D. in 1980.

 EconLog, Anarcho-Capitalism and Statist Lock-In, Bryan Caplan: Library of Economics and Liberty
Anarchocapitalism is contradictory; civil war between mafiosi, as in Somalia, is about freedom for aggression.
In Somalia, the specified conditions obtained, favorable to anarchocapitalism, if such could arise spontaneously at all, yet states have appeared in the areas of "Somalia" which have stabilized territorially.
The political culture needed for stable anarchocapitalism to function would require a belief in the superiority of anarchocapitalism, coupled with the willingness to maintain, through ostracism and other means, the primary public good of anarchocapitalism - the absence of a prevailing security provider.

 Looting an Ideology
A different tradition is anarchocapitalism, which seeks a stateless society that operates along free-market lines.
Due to this market emphasis, anarchocapitalism generally is regarded as an extreme of the political right, although its adherents do not necessarily self-identify as right wing.
Anarchocapitalism has been a tendency of some libertarian institutions and intellectuals (economist Murray Rothbard was a major advocate), and it sometimes receives a respectful hearing even in libertarian publications oriented toward limited, rather than nonexistent, government.

 The 2+2 Forums: 21 FAQs of anarchocapitalism, new update
Anarchocapitalism cannot and will not come about without a large amount of people supporting it, otherwise another government will rise again.
There will still be problems, it's just that anarchocapitalism allows people to deal with their problems and assess risk on their own terms, without a coercive force telling them what they should do.
The key to anarchocapitalism is not really the "anarcho" part; it is the "capitalism" part.

Anarchocapitalism would be at its fullest swing if you had people that understood it.
Anarchocapitalism only can work when the vast majority sympathizes with the ideas behind it.  Minarchism works irregardless of political persuasion so long as constitutional law holds sway over unrestrained democracy.
In Anarchocapitalism, people would be happy with the way they live, so with Anarchocapitalism, there is automatically a vast majority that would sympathize with it.

 Natural Law
The premise of this paper is that anarchocapitalism, at least in its Rothbardian version, (1) presupposes the existence of a natural order or law of human affairs.
The supposition is that the world is constituted by a multitude of separate, diverse, individual—but not isolated—human agents whose survival and well-being depend on their ability to produce (find, make, transport) useful things and to get along peacefully with one another.
In short, anarchocapitalism, in its Rothbardian form, stands or falls with its supposition that there is a natural order—a natural law—of the human world and that each human person has a place in that order that is delimited by his or her natural rights.

 Liberty, Anarchy and the Libertarian Party by Roberto Dieg
Their professed goal must be that of a limited government that is charged only with defending and protecting the rights of man. Further, they must not join forces with others who advocate opposing systems of government.
This article will examine anarchocapitalism in order to show that the arguments made for it are false, that anarchy would achieve the opposite of man's rights, and that anarchocapitalist ideas can only sabotage and destroy the true movement toward liberty.
The result of this association is that Libertarians and their political party have been corrupted by fringe groups whose only goals are to move into the mainstream by means of the concept of freedom.

The more balanced conflicts where both sides have strong arguments result in very little restriction, while extreme imbalances (dumping nuclear wastes into water supplies, or excessive tax to give one example of each) are heavily restricted.
At this time, I think that the government and corporations can collaborate too easily, and that is partly a result of increased regulations over the past 40-50 years.
At the same time, ALL of them would think they know what's best for me...or maybe it's really all about what's best for them at everyone else's expense, and their so-called convictions are just rhetorical nonsense meant to confuse the issue.

4) It's not clear that AnarchoCapitalism is a serious political ideology instead of mere political maneuvering.
So I find equal time given to AnarchoCapitalism to be a bit irritating.
anarchy would have a note at the bottom saying "sometimes used in a broader sense to include AnarchoCapitalism, which blah blah" but would otherwise treat traditional forms, and libertarianism would have a note sating "formerly used in a broader sense to include AnarchoSyndicalism, which blah blah" but would otherwise treat what have become standard forms.

 Mises Economics Blog: Polycentric Law
Posted by: Manuel Lora at July 10, 2005 04:20 PM I think anarchocapitalism would be a strong example of polycentric law, but the latter could refer to any set of overlapping or competing legal systems or jurisdictions, including ones where individuals have little choice about which system they fall under.
As for poloycentric law, I had not heard the term until now, but I understand it to mean decentralized, market-based law that is fully in keeping with the stateless, cooperative rule for which I suggest the name cooperacy.
Posted by: David White at July 11, 2005 04:28 PM The anarchy part of anarchocapitalism is also lack of force.

 Walter In Denver: Comment on Recommended
On anarchocapitalism, it's no less a dream state than the withering-away communist one.
As WUTT posted before, "if government is outlawed, only outlaws will have governments." And they'll be perfectly happy to impose their government on us once ours is abolished.
Guys, "purity tests" have been a staple on the net since before the Web was invented; it's just a term, pretty much stemming from the joking "sexual purity tests" ever so popular with adolescents of all ages; think of it as a hyphenate.

Or more likely, based upon some of his assertions about anarchocapitalists, he's merely setting up a straw man argument by starting out with fallacious assumption that anarchocapitalism is something that clearly is not.
In discussions with people who dismiss anarchocapitalism, I've had my arguments rejected out of hand, because I backed up my ideas with my own real world experience, and on-going real world examples, instead of referencing some obscure Ayn Rand essay.
This is because "At heart, most right wing anarchists are right wing statists." I have no doubt that having been completely wrong about everything that anarchocapitalists are, he's wrong on this.

In the end, would I prefer to see anarchocapitalism or socialism survive?
A lot of the value in society is the cooperation between people, and I just don't think that anarchocapitalism would provide much of a basis for cooperation.
Our current form of capitalism provides that basis, roughly speaking, but I think anything much more anarchocapitalistic would be very difficult in that area.

"We talk an awful lot about whether you have to stop at libertarianism or go on to anarchocapitalism," Jillette said the other day.
Luckily, Jillette and Provenza steered themselves away from anarchocapitalism (Death to Aristocrats?) and toward the science of dirty jokes.
