The Oxymoronic Sovereignty MovementSubmitted by OctoBox on Tue, 01/26/2010 - 17:35
Propertarian-Sovereignty vs Consumer-Sovereignty
Rothbard vs Mises
When people say sovereignty by itself here on DP they are talkin about Rothbardian-Homesteading and the Common Law Movement.
Law -- is a right, backed by a force-agency
There are no voluntary "laws" -- voluntary means you may freely disregard and propertarian-homesteading laws are "supposedly" enforceable in a free-society by voluntary courts. OXYMORONIC.
Voluntary Courts means you get to chose the court -- If I deny every court you come up with there is NO mechanism in a "voluntary" free-society to make me appear. A mediator only has as much power as we voluntarily give it -- even then they don't have the power to remove assets in a "voluntary" society. You can appeal endlessly.
If we seek an individualist model that benefits the maximum number of people and does not prop-up "perpetual war" (workers vs owners: capitalism - corporatism - founders-minarchism - nobles vs peasants) then we are truly seeking Consumer-Sovereignty.
Everyone (workers, students, owners, seniors, and children) are all consumers.
This is an important debate -- Because in my opinion if we cannot fully conceptualize liberty we will never have it -- we will manifest a short-run Founders-Type Minarchism or an even shorter-lived Rothbardian-Anarchy.
Liberty is a One-Size-Fits-All model
