    I just think any self defense or punitive force should be proportional.

    And yes I dislike cops more than private criminals. No private criminals ever come close to doing as much damage as the "public" ones. The police and the military are the muscle of the state. They are it's executive arm. They are the one's that actually go out and do it's dirty work. One cop on "the force" (appropriately named) does more harm to people in just a few weeks than even than most criminals can do in a year. The scale of it is mind boggling.

    I'm definitely not an AnCom. Trust me, I'm all about markets. But this doesn't mean I always have to side with capitalists and business interests, especially when they behave in very "un-free market" ways.

    However, communist type social arrangements are not inherently in conflict with the nap. Just like just about anything else, they can be when used by a state, but there isn't anything that I know of in communism as a concept that says everyone must be forced to participate. So long as participants are voluntary choosing then its part of the market and supported by me. Personally I'm too propetarian for a communist environment. I'd prefer a community with a little more interdependence.

    I'm curious why I seem like a ancom?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It doesn't take anything away from the truth of what's being said. I can thank Molyneux for introducing me to anarchism as a matter of fact, especially the old early podcasts (you should really check out the bomb in the brain series and the intro to philosophy series). It seems he gets less and less political as time goes on which is a shame. He is awesome on parenting though. Of course I also recommend branching out as you move along.

    Better than raiding the trust-fund while still going deeper in dept, like we've done for the past two administrations...

    Also this isnt the be all end all, but it really helps with your dilemma for being so short.

    Also, you were a less radical libertarian previously is that right?

    You probably couldn't. If I snapped my fingers and disappeared the state tomorrow, people would immediately set themselves to creating a new one. A prerequisite for a free society is a population aware of the true nature of the state and a desire to do without one. This doesn't require changing the minds of the whole world though. That will never happen. The vast majority of people make decisions on what is practical for them. All you need is some toehold city somewhere and offer people a choice.

    I'm against small states as much as I am big ones, and we also have to remember that we are currently in the midst of the results of exactly that kind of experiment that I believe had the best possible chances for "success".

    do you consider yourself an anarchist these days?

    You are wasting your breath. The two die hard socialist, wont listen to anything proven with facts, and they deny anything that does prove they are wrong.

    No, you can choose to leave. Or if you stay, change the rules. There's nothing magic about 50% - you can change it to whatever you like. Tyranny by the government is a risk in any system - you have freedom to leave, or in a democracy, vote to change the rules. In most countries, the judiciary and the constitution are the primary restraints on state-sponsored tyranny. But they can fail, and in many countries the best option is to vote with your feet and leave. Unfortunately for hard-core libertarians, there is probably nowhere on Earth for them to be happy with the political system. Hence the OP makes the very rational suggestion that Libs should use relative rather than absolute policy evaluations - something you and others on this forum seem loathe to do.

    Maybe we both need to enroll in the INTJf discussion of Rousseau's social contract. I deny the "violence" - taxes and the resulting government services are mandatory and enforceable by violence only once you voluntarily agree to the social contract of your place of residence.
