Competitive definitions

I can offer a competitive definition of anarchism.

During the time period between 1776 and 1788 there were 13 State governments limited by Constitutions in each State.

Each state was a Republic.

Those Republics then created a Voluntary Union under The Articles of Confederation as documented by The Declaration of Independence as the source of principles governing this effort at Voluntary Association.

The British Monopolists (Legal Criminals) didn't like the idea.

What was in operation at the time, despite The British problem which was solved, was a Free Market of Government that worked like a shopping center of Republics.

Governors sold government to potential buyers called Tax Payers.

Tax Payers shopped around and invested into better or best governments, moving freely from a more despotic government to a less despotic government.

In place, in operation, was, then, the force of a Free Market, as the buyers demanded the governments that they wanted, and therefore the governors had to supply what was in demand, or another governor would supply what was in demand, and that force forces the quality of government up, and the cost of government down, as individual Tax Payers voted with their feet, and the total sum of all the votes is, in fact, that FORCE of competition.

That is how it worked, as documented in clear examples such as the events that became known as Shays's Rebellion, and as many of those against Monarchy, or Consolidation, or Nationalism, explained in so many words during that time period.

Anarchism, or Voluntary Association, or Free Market, or Open Source, government did work, was defined in that time period in that way, and so anyone claiming that anarchism is defined in another way, does so competitively, side by side, your individual definition against that one as that one did exist in that way.

All those people living in that time defined anarchism that way, between 1776 and 1788, under The Articles of Confederation, there was, here in America, Free Market government, defined by them, in that way.

So your definition of what might be anarchism, according to your imagination, is weighted on the Liberty Scale held by Lady Liberty, against that which did, in fact, exist in this land.

Free Market government is not a conspiracy theory.

Voluntary Association is not a utopian dream.

You who are suffering from Absolute Abject Belief in Falsehood Without Question aught to read what the Legal Criminals offer to you, before you swallow hook line and sinker.

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

And whereas, it is in my judgment necessary under the circumstances of the case to take measures for calling forth the militia in order to suppress the combinations aforesaid, and to cause the laws to be duly executed; and I have accordingly determined so to do, feeling the deepest regret for the occasion, but withal the most solemn conviction that the essential interests of the Union demand it, that the very existence of government and the fundamental principles of social order are materially involved in the issue, and that the patriotism and firmness of all good citizens are seriously called upon, as occasions may require, to aid in the effectual suppression of so fatal a spirit;

Section 4.
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

Adam Kokesh has it right if the idea is to return to a working Republic, to regain Constitutionally limited State governments that may, or may not, invest in a Voluntary Union.

You, if you have been fooled, aught to wise up.
