> "The kingdom of God is within you" he argued that moral principles must be universal and concluded that state is a criminal organization

So basically only if he were in charge? Applying universal codes creates the problems that they're trying to fix. Ideology sucks imo. In fact I'm writing an article, when Davi gets back from Liberty Forum he'll critique the second run and we'll go from there.
Why? No; universal means that if individual is not allowed to do something, a group of individuals is not allowed as well. And that one cannot delegate authority one does not have to some other person or a group.


 >"Not sure how one can be socialist with that kind of moral code - socialism cannot exist without violence."

Neither can capitalism. Neither can you, or I. Socialism means different things to different people. They're a diverse lot.
I disagree. There will be violence in any meaningfully large society, there was no argument to the contrary. There are differences however: capitalism or anarchy do not require the initiation of the use of force against those who have forced no one. As opposed to socialism. Socialism is generally defined as public ownership of the means of production (I think Mises defined it this way), plus popularly, perhaps, welfare state. Anarchy is the absence of state, which is a monopoly on the legitimate use of force within a geographic region. Capitalism could be defined as system with full respect for private property, which in the ultimate analysis requires anarchy. If we agree on the above, then it is not entirely subjective after all.

>"Rothbard's explicit conclusions, thus maybe he did not realize he was an anarchist, but I think he can be called one."

Rothbard was anit-State, I wouldn't call him an anarchist though. Hierarchy etymologically means "sacred ruler" private property is a hierarchy. (And NO I'm not saying you can't own your toothbrush or whatever). It's all subjective anyway.

That's the point of anarchy though, decentralisation and mutual agreement between all parties.
Was not it Rothbard who created the term "Anarcho-Capitalist"?
Private property is hierarchy? If it is (though I don't see it this way), it is entirely different kind of hierarchy than state's, because you do not have to initiate violence to have property, as opposed to the state. Based on the definitions above, Rothbard was in fact anarchist if he rejected the state and the initiation of violence.

What do you mean when you say anarchist?

EDIT: It appears from what I've gleaned from Wikipedia that he was some sort of Christian libertarian socialist?

He rejected state or any central authority; in "The kingdom of God is within you" he argued that moral principles must be universal and concluded that state is a criminal organization. He did not call for any sort of final solution as far as I know, but for rejecting violence, including that legalized by the state, at personal level; such as going to war and killing at the government's command. Not sure how one can be socialist with that kind of moral code - socialism cannot exist without violence. He did not reach Rothbard's explicit conclusions, thus maybe he did not realize he was an anarchist, but I think he can be called one.
Yes, he was Christian, but damned and excommunicated by the official church, and was not without illusions, but one thing which he always rejected was violence (he even went too far, did not like even the idea of defensive violence); that is what I understood from reading his works, anyway.

Those are not Cossacks, just clowns and thugs dressed similarly.
True cossacks were destroyed during the civil war.
They were free armed landowners and their society was originally stateless.
Leo Tolstoy was among them and wrote a novel called "The Cossacks". At the time they were in the process of being absorbed by the empire.
Leo Tolstoy was an anarchist.
