What do you think of Larken Rose's anarchism?

I read “the most dangerous superstition.” It is a very forceful and convincing argument. I mean how can you really argue against not committing violence? It has to be the right way to go.

I go back and forth. Sometimes I question whether it is really best for honest, non-violent people to remove themselves completely from the political process. Will not voting and not politically organizing just leave all the corrupt individuals with free reign to dominate everyone instead of at least being resisted? The counter argument being that if everyone just stops participating the whole thing loses its imagined legitimacy and we don’t have to “resist” it at all.

I just wonder what Larken Rose thinks of Ron Paul. Was “Ron Paul” “worth it?” It seems to me that some good can come from political action as a way to educate people about issues. I emailed him the question “What if there was a candidate that ran on an uncompromising platform of abolishing the state and all throughout the campaign they handed out copies of “the most dangerous superstition?” Would that type of political action be ok? But he did not email me back.

What do you think?

"I just wonder what Larken Rose thinks of Ron Paul. Was “Ron Paul” “worth it?” "

I've heard him say that he likes RP in his videos and he refers to him in his book, "The Iron Web" when Grant Collins gives his speech.
"Some faces were openly angry, many were confused, but Betsy noticed, with some surprise, one elderly congressman grinning widely."

"“What if there was a candidate that ran on an uncompromising platform of abolishing the state and all throughout the campaign they handed out copies of “the most dangerous superstition?” "

Look what happened to RP in his presidential run, people aren't ready for that yet if ever.

future is bright, it is because it at some point embraces voluntarism. Tweaking the Constitution, or going back to the Articles of Confederation (preferable of the 2) is going backwards. The early American founding was a necessary evolutionary step toward self governance and eradicating or at least tempering our fostered impulse to control.
