Please refer any statists you know to my site, especially ones who are hanging onto statism by a thread (say they've been persuaded that statism is immoral, but they think that anarcho-capitalism is impractical).  Readers are free to submit any question, which I will add and answer.
Ancapistan?

Egggg...

Why don't just ancapia?
2  Questions And Challenges / Challenges To Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: why capitalism is unsustainable on: April 01, 2014, 08:06:22 AM
Money is used to make more money

Money is actually used to lead people. Its just money. But its also a great resource to make ventures that will lead people (give them work). It also motivates entrepreneurs, the people that lead the world.

There is also nothing wrong with resources running out, in capitalism nothing is a problem. A problem means profit when you solve the problem. If resources mattered, we would all die when they run'd out, and they would run out if it wasn't for capitalism.

Also, money is limited, but wealth is not. If someone has a net worth of 100 million he might only have 5m$ cash. The rest of his wealth is in his property etc. If we had no property, we limit the amount of wealth someone can have, therefore we limit the GDP. If we limit the GDP, we limit innovation.

Someone said something about the sun dying. In anything other than capitalism its gonna be a day everyone dies. In capitalism its gonna be a day we solve a problem. Who is gonna do it? The people that want the useless resource - money.

Money is the best invention human kind has ever had.

I said that one day the sun would die, to show him how his idea of sustainability didn't allow for anything to be sustainable.

Let me add something.

In free market capitalism, resources are measured in how much do they cost so if they're hard to find, hard to extract or scarce  his price will inevitably rise so its use will start to slow down, but... big enterprises arent stupid, if they extract resources they know better than no one how much are left and they  can predict easily if its going to run out or not.

 So they will have to put all their efforts to find a sustitute, and the more important is that resource is more investigated to find alternatives, all because their survival depends to find a subtitute BEFORE the resource becomes rarer.

 So you have rational self-regulation and strong impulse in I+D to solve the same problem. Goverment, will fix prices and use force to maintain the prices of those resources even if they become rarer to find, and when they cant maintain that lie prices explodes and everybody loses.

Hacking the military should be taken as a support way, because the more you ciberattack someone the more he will learn about his flaws and fix them(maybe creating others but at military levels every exploit should be treated as a treasure)

Hacking cant win wars, as tanks or planes cant win wars by themselves,  you still need people to occupy and maintain positions, is a tool not a main front.

 And forget about hacking an entire country, efective hacking is a mix of social engineering and the use of exploits in security, can you get lucky and gain access to CIA or FBI? of course, but you cant rely on that and even if you gain access that doesnt mean that the entire institution is under your control.

Im saying is universal but now that you ask

Art is a form of expression and identity.

You could also say a dog howling is music.  That doesn't mean they can understand and sign the NAP.  

I was trying to say, that non-ancaps should respect ancaps beliefs when they're in ancapia ...

They should, but to expect it would be risky.  Also, how would you keep them out?  I doubt an ancap society would be into border control. 

1-It was a joke dammit.

2-I guess that or you cant because they are humans and you cant initiate force against them, just make the NAP so dangerous to violate that people will take care to read about it before entering and respecting it(and still there would be problems but thats why Im paying for weapons or private contractors right?)

I was trying to say, that non-ancaps should respect ancaps beliefs when they're in ancapia because even if they're are allowed to pass(because its not neccesary to make tolls for all roads in a private society)  they have to respect others property even if they come from a society of collective property because that would be initiation of force against others.

The NAP is for humans, not for other signers.

Seconded, but guerillas take the weapons of their enemy. So yeah maybe one day if this is built we will be the ones wearing it.

Why not just go remote control/automated?  Why put yourself at risk?

It really depends on the tecnology you have at your disposal or the engineers you have in your guerrilla to capture and maintain such "toys".

 It would be logical that things like bots and UAVs would be expensive and rare and only used in special moments to keep them out of risk as much as you can, unless you can buy or make them easily. Humans are still absurdly cheap to use as force and even more desirable, since humans can have peaceful intentions and camuflage between the population or learn and improve in even more cheap ways.

With open source work, this can be replied maybe not at military level since they have the monopoly of high end industries, but definely cheaper and quicker to make(open source is  DIY dependent so it needs to be cheap and easy to make all in relative levels of course).

When he said "I got to vicepresidency without any vote... democracy is overrated"(I watched the show in Spanish, I dont know if those were the actual words or not when he was being elected vicepresident officially) that phrase was astonishing, as it shows how corruption and social skills can  easily handle government mechanisms of corruption.

Ok I get it, people can be part of ancapia whether they accept a Shire contract or not.

The only rule is accepting the NAP as ancaps do even if you refuse to follow it(And is not even a rule as itself just a social conclusion).

This is because I havent ever heard about how to stablish an anarchocapitalism at early stages, when most of the people is still statist, libertarian socialist, comunist... and they actively reject ancapia.
12  General Category / General Discussion / Re: A question on: March 30, 2014, 11:09:15 AM
But they dont accept the NAP as the most basic principle, so they dont accept to be part of ancapia therefore they cant live in it.

Thats because they're not accepting that they cant initiate force, or private property.

But... but... you're part of the state too!.

Anyway, I dont know why but his accent make his speec even more orgasmic.
14  General Category / General Discussion / A question on: March 30, 2014, 06:20:22 AM
The last day a question went to my head.

 Lets say that by... the power of imagination I go as a president of my country and say "lets create ancapia!"s so I cut all taxes(efectively destroying the state) and create a social contract like the Shire society one so people can choose to be part of ancapia or not by voluntarly acepting the NAP.

But, what happens with those who dont signt the contract? They cant stay in ancapia since they reject it but no one can initiate force against them since the NAP is universal.

Note: Any fellow spaniard here?
