Do the poor and mentally ill have any rights in an anarcho cap society?Submitted by BmoreBrawler on Thu, 06/12/2014 - 20:48
We know that they will ideally have contract rights and property rights (that they can't afford to enforce) somehow, but...
Specifically, do they have the rights enshrined in our Bill of Rights?
The right to due process of law.
The right to legal counsel even if they cannot afford it.
The right to be held innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The right to jury trials.
The right to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects, even when accused of a crime unless there is probable cause?
The right to confront their accusers.
The right against self incrimination.
The right to not be cruelly and unusually punished.
What method is there for absolutely securing these rights procedurally where these people cannot afford to subscribe to agencies of law/defense etc? How can we make sure these rights are absolute and not conditional on the magnanimity of profit-driven entities with a disincentive to encourage free riding?
