But What About…?

The ideas of voluntaryism are sometimes criticized as utopian fantasy because “it just won’t work”. These people come up with difficult questions and hard problems that a voluntary society would face, and because the person they are asking doesn’t have the answers (or no one does), they assume that the status quo of statism is the only workable system simply because it actually exists. The problem with this kind of thinking is that it will agree that voluntaryism may be the only moral society, meaning that it agrees that it is the only system that should exist, it just denies that voluntaryism can exist or that it will function well, therefore it should not exist and not be the libertarian end-goal. It is pretty obvious that this line of thought is contradictory because it believes that a voluntary society should both exist and not exist at the same time, and it is a non-sequitor that because you cannot comprehend a voluntary society existing in reality that it should not exist.

So regardless if you can’t imagine a voluntary way of solving a technical problem, it doesn’t magically justify aggression. Minarchists in particular are guilty of committing this fallacy. The only consistent position to take is the anarchist, or voluntaryist, position. It is not possible to know in advance how people will live and thrive without initiating force against each other, but it is possible to speculate on the likely free market methods for provision of things like defense, justice, roads, and protection. This has been the subject of many excellent books, some of which I will do here (all of these are free on Mises.org):

City Council Terminates Police Force – Town Doesn’t Decend Into Chaos

I was shocked when I saw this headline on TheFreeThoughtProject.com — not that the town didn’t decend into chaos, but that the city council got rid of the police! Very interesting read. Every town should do this.

The Looming Financial Crisis That Nobody Is Talking About, but Should Be

This article reveals the major indicators of the coming collapse of the current financial system. As a side note, I would like to say that this may be done on purpose, to lead to the creation of a one world currency and a one world central bank. However, if we can change people’s minds, and get the messege out that central banks are the cause of these horrifying depressions, then when the next collapse comes, instead of being replaced with an even greater central bank, this destructive system could be brought to an end.

Yes, Hillary Clinton Served on the Board of a Company That Funds ISIS

Hillary Clinton is really and truly evil. I could not even make up all the terrible things that she has done. I believe that regardless of the votes, she is going to win the election because she is a pawn in the hands of the deep state, the deep state that determines who will be the next president regardless of votes.

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself: Ethan from TheLibertyAdvocate.com is on Steemit

This is my introduceyouself post on Steemit. Posted here for the purpose of verifying my libertyadvocate Steemit account. If you enjoy my content, please follow and upvote my posts.

Voluntaryist Symbol

Hello there, Steemit community! My name is Ethan, I’m seventeen years old (as of the time of writing), and I’m commited to the creation of a voluntary society. I discovered Steemit through Jeff Berwick in his Dollar Vigilante and Anarchast podcasts/websites. I have learned a lot more about it since then, and think that Steemit is a great idea with tons of potential, although whether or not it will be successful is unclear (at least to me). I’ve spent most of my life in Alaska, but have recently moved to Missouri. I believe that technology (including Steemit) will be key to the creation of anarchy by rendering the state unneccessary, but ideology will determine how and to what extent technology will be used and developed to replace the state.

For as far back as I can remember I’ve been libertarian-ish, but it was at about the age of 14 that I read Murray Rothbard’s book, For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto. From that point on, I was convinced that anarchism was the only moral system, but I wanted to know more about the particulars on the functioning of such a society, so I read, and am continuing to read, many books, essays, and articles on the subject. My favorite authors are Murry Rothbard, Walter Block, Hans Hermann-Hoppe, and many others.

Today, I have started a website, TheLibertyAdvocate.com, and am writing to change people’s hearts and minds in favor of liberty, which is what I believe will create a free society.
