So you're going to call me names and that's all it takes for you to prove your point? I could respond in kind, but I won't because even though I disagree with you I'm not going to resort to petty attempts to disparage you or your ideas.
I understand your concerns with anarchism, Mark. I had to overcome some of my own before I was able to embrace it. For me it came down to the fact that I could not find a moral justification for government monopoly. I believe self determination is as valid for the individual as it is for a community, large or small. If any state has the right to succeed from the nation, then any county has the same right, as does any city, or any community, or any family, or any person.
You take issue with anarchism not being able to make absolute guarantees, but neither can the system we have now, even with the Constitution. The Constitution does not give us our rights, it merely expresses the idea that we have these rights by our very nature of being human. But if people don't believe in the idea then it doesn't really matter that it's written on paper. We can see this plainly today. Even in our Supreme Court.
We have to make people believe in the idea of personal liberty again. It needs to be written in their hearts and minds, not on a piece of paper.
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.
