Bill, you amazing ignoramus....

People are arguing for the general principles that government consistently fails and markets consistently work.

That's it.

When these ideas are understood and believed widely enough, a shift can begin, away from organization through idiot force, and toward the literally limitless possibilities markets offer.

Nobody can predict what forms market organization will take. Nobody 30 years ago could predict the iPod, or the Daily Paul, or craigslist....Nobody 200 years ago could predict Ford or Edison or Montgomery Ward....But someone who understands markets can predict that ingenious services and organizational schemes will result when individuals have free choice and sane incentives.

The so-called anarchy position just applies market logic to areas traditionally handled by psychos and thugs enjoying a monopoly on certain functions in society.
