Comment: consistency

Like I said yesterday, it is philosophically inconsistent to say that I have the right to be free from being raped, but that I also have the right to rape another. An anarcho-capitalist isn't an anarchist. To say that a person is an anarcho-capitalist is to imply that they agree to the philosophical principal that they have 100% ownership of their body, and likely would agree that they have no right to the involuntary abuse of someone else's body. An anarchist doesn't view things this way, but just like we had the discussion yesterday about capitalism vs. free market capitalism, I'd say the distinction between an anarchist and an anarcho-capitalist is even more important to distinguish. In short, an ancap wouldn't think he has the right to rape you, because he knows that it is inconsistent with the idea that he himself has the right not to be raped.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
