First let's define government. Two criteria are needed.
First, it is a compulsory monopoly of jurisdiction in a given geographic region even in cases that include itself.
Second it is the has a monopoly on taxation (the price that everyone pays for the services of it[the State].
Monopolies are always bad for consumers. So why is it preferable to allow a monopoly to exist in the most important service society needs? Security? Monopolies will always render higher prices and bad service. And this 'service' the government is supposed to provide has no contract. What happens when they fail? Do the people get their money back? Do they make a change? No. They like failure. Failure allows them to increase the cost and perpetuate the problem so they can do less for ever more money.
I did not say the founders of Anarchistic thought did not go way back. Poetsie lived in the 15th century if I am not mistaken.
Anarchists are the only ones who know that humans will always have evil outliers. That is why creating an institution with the legal right to be evil will only attract these people. You can't fight fire with fire.
I know you can't think that Katrina or Sandy are examples of anarchy, c'mon. Both are examples of a why the USGovt sucks in spite of the most monstrous tax burden ever! Including the Scandinavian countries. Yep, you have to add in our health insurance to compare us with them and that puts us higher than them.
Anarchy is not utopia. It is merely the elimination of a flawed legal monopoly on justice. Just like Ron Paul like competing currencies, Anarchist like competing justice systems.
When will you Minarchist concede that it just didn't work?
