Do I Have To Be An Anarchist or a Minarchist?Submitted by Marc Clair on Wed, 06/25/2014 - 16:52
Something I tend to notice when having discussions with people, not just here but in other forums.
When having disagreements with an anarchist, I am usually called a minarchist.

Remember when we all first discovered Ron Paul, and we'd get frustrated when both Democrats and Republican would try to make us fit in their box, and would inevitably call you "progressive" for holding an anti-war belief, or a "fascist" or "conservative" for defending this or that on the free market?
Well, that's the same way I feel about anarchy vs. minarchy. It has become the left-right paradigm of the liberty movement. And it's just as false.
Can't I just be someone who strives for rational political debate which aims at a consistent philosophy?
