For starters, they don't keep an IP log, so there is no way for anyone to know what email is actually linked to you.  The email is encrypted from their server to your PC, so it can't be read on the way to you.  You can also easily send encrypted messages out to people on other networks. 

We support sending encrypted communication to non-ProtonMail users via symmetric encryption. When you send an encrypted message to a non-ProtonMail user, they receive a link which loads the encrypted message onto their browser, which they can decrypt using a passphrase that you have shared with them. You can also send unencrypted messages to Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook and others, just like regular email.

The best would be to have both users in the same encrypted system, but it isn't needed.

This is probably the most secure your email can get right now.  It is hosted in Switzerland and completely encrypted.  

This isn't posted to be an ad, but I know a lot of people here value their privacy, and email is one of the worst offenders right now.

Do you realize you will get a staggering number of people that read this and not get it, nor agree with it?

I started this one on my own long ago.  It makes for a happier life.

I stopped wanting to talk here because it became less about sharing ideas and more about constantly headbutting with socialists all over the forum.  That isn't fun or productive.

(ENG) The anarchocapitalist park and pay for sit on a bench
(CZ) Anarchokapitalistický park a placeni sezeni na lavičce

In English too.


I am not sure if you are suggesting that in ancap people would actually pay to sit on a park bench or not, but I pity anyone with such a lack of forethought.  It would be like suggesting that wal-mart is going to charge you to park, or walk inside.  There is a difference between a service with a revenue stream, and enabling it.

I don't know much about the foundation.  From a glance it seems like an organization finding ways to monetize something they are interested in.  There is no requirement to interact with them.  It is like the companies that offer their own versions of Linux.  You can just go get a free version of it if you want, or you can get involved with them.  If anything the visibility they create helps everyone.

You seem to be saying that I made death threats. Your weird claim makes me confused and a bit  scared.  Undecided Cry I call: emotive argument therefore a fallacy.

If you are complicit in the act, you are guilty of it as well.  

It is not sharing when those that can't or won't pay go to jail and are robbed anyway, and those that refuse to go to jail will die in the attempt.   It is not something people do because they want to.  

That confused and scared feeling you claim should be claimed by all when hearing the uttering of those that advocate the state, for the tacit threat is quite real when you test it.  It is no better than the racketeering schemes run by the Mafia, just hidden under a veil of legitimacy as slavery once was. 

If it was really sharing, it would be charity.  I do advocate sharing, you advocate theft and murder.

"Free" healthcare has been available a long time.  It is only recently that it was outlawed.  Religious hospitals tended to lead the way in it.  There is a local hospital system that has been providing free care for an entire city.  The free hospital is only available to those in need, and is funded by the other hospitals in the network. 

A few years ago it was basically outlawed to give free health care.  It is a big political game.  Now those in need have to vote for the government health care systems. 
10  Questions And Challenges / Questions About Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: What's an anarchist to do ? on: January 14, 2015, 10:29:48 PM
I regularly ask myself about this. "How can I be free?"

I don't ask about defeating fascists, the gov', specifically. If fighting the fascists is a losing game, which it seems to be, then the best strategy is to not play it. It's like facing a force of nature - a tornado... Unless I have some really cool tech', the best move is to prepare for it, avoid it, and live it out.

So, I try to figure out, like in a game of Weiqi (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gECcsSeRcNo#t=135), how to increase my liberties.  Smiley Which is rather personal, depends on the country, and economic situation, and so forth.

However, I do wonder about the best tactics for fending off fascists. Fascists are akin to flies; you want to get rid of their disturbances, but you don't want to waste all your time on it, losing focus from more important things. I jokingly told a friend once, "If flies have an electric trap that efficiently solves the problem, then I wonder what is the trap for fascists."  Tongue

If you want a fly trap for fascists, give them a pile of feces.  They will like that, so will the flies.
11  Questions And Challenges / Questions About Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: Health Care and long-term disability on: January 14, 2015, 10:26:41 PM
"Across the world, people with disabilities have poor health outcomes, lower educational achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities"

World Report on Disability WHO
July 2011

Why should this be so?

All over the world disabled people are left to struggle on charity. Are they not, also, allowed the dignity of a right to care? We all have human rights which we bestow on each other? In Africa there are many, many, very rich people among the poor-there is no welfare-yet the disabled and they're families suffer greatly. It is not any proof that you hope that individuals will donate. Let's not gamble peoples lives and humanity on guess work.  Some countries provide universal health care-free. Great idea!

A society without taxation in a good goal for any country. I'm sure it can be done,but, not by sacrificing  the weak!-good for you if your not vulnerable.
In such a society that you speak of babies with a even slight disability will be aborted or killed-this idea was actually discussed by professionals in the UK.

Let's think again.

I call BS.

First off, if you want to talk about rights, what right do you have to threaten the lives of everyone to steal from them? 

When you look at societies with government health care systems and very socialized services, there is a incredible drop of charity as people assume it is taken care of, and tend to require their money that remains after the mass theft to keep themselves alive.  Without your death threats, perhaps people would be more charitable than you assume.  Your mention of rich people in Africa tend to be the very same ones that are causing the poverty through government theft that you advocate.   

Why don't you think again instead of making ignorant self-righteous claims.
12  Questions And Challenges / Questions About Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: How Popular is Anarcho Capitalism? on: January 14, 2015, 10:14:35 PM
I have to say, I find it sad, if not insulting to be called libertarian 'right'.  It seems that it is called that due to the concept of free market.  The problem is the actual 'right' is anything but free market.   
13  Questions And Challenges / Challenges To Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: Stuff Anarcho-Capitalists do that I hate on: January 14, 2015, 10:02:19 PM
1) Explain Why individuals should be allowed to keep and control a "means of production" if they happen to already own one and/or manage to gain one (bonus points if you can prove that hierarchy will still exist in some form under property collectivization)

By using the word "allowed" you show the problem of regular socialism.  By taking something, they wouldn't really be all that libertarian would they?  

I've always backed voluntary forms of socialism.  They can make a voluntary kingdom for all I care.  As soon as it is no longer voluntary is when problems arise.  If a group of people get together to obtain their own means of production, great.  Let them go for it.  If they want to take things from someone else, they have to expect resistance.

If they want communal ownership, they could buy stock in companies.  They will then have partial ownership of a publicly traded company with the means of production.

There is some assumption in this thread that the economy didn't exist prior to these dictators.  It did exist, it just wasn't centralized and controlled by a government to be counted.  The native Celts of Europe had global trade, which made them so valuable for Rome to invade and steal from.  They were relatively wealthy before they were conquered.
