1  Questions And Challenges / Challenges To Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: The Austrian School of Ignorance on: May 13, 2014, 01:51:50 AM
The so called  "communist" Soviet Union created Sputnick. What's you're point? Are you attempting to imply that the Soviet Union was egalitarian? That's really the only reason I can see you quoting that and replying the way you did... If that's the case I suggest you do some research into the Soviet Union.

I believe he is under the assumption that no one owned anything there, anti-proprietarian was the term you used.  That is of course a completely incorrect assumption on his part.

Then again, everything he says is an incorrect assumption.  I am curious why anyone bothers talking to him. 





For the benefit of those who may come along later and read these threads.

We thank you for your sacrifice

I have bipolar disorder and don't take breakups very well, I've cut myself and made several attempts at suicide. Only my Asatru faith and my desire to spite the world were able to pull me back from the pit.

I wonder why the Fed hasn't yet started bying bitcoin (unless they have) because acquiring a large amount would mean once mining ends they could use their vast government funding to shrink or expand the available supply. If they wanted they could by up a massive supply of Bitcoin and then flood the system with it devaluing it and causing financial strain for the "dissident" users.

They already have a significant leg up on most of us with the seizure of the silk road bitcoins. 

Very true.

I don't think BitCoin is going to be what most individual people want it to be, because Wall Street is buying into it big time with Regulated Funds, like Second Market, Bitcoin Investment Trust, and Pantera Capital each with million upon millions of dollars to be dumped into Bitcoin.  While this should raise the US Dollar value of Bitcoin, however, the likely-hood that it will END THE FED like everybody wants it to becomes highly unlikely. 

High-Frequency Trading between different AltCoins will make using AltCoins for currency very unlikely.  The fact that these funds will just cash out, and sell their AltCoins so they could later buy them back cheaper and sell them high -due to the limited supply of BitCoins and LiteCoins and the amount of traders, this process will happen over and over again- will keep the price point of entry relatively high; and since most early adopters where so giddy to just spend BitCoin at Overstock and such, the only people really going to make money off of this will be the Bankers, the Creator(s), and those who were patient and held.

If I ever stop being a leftist I'll miss the music most of all. It is within the bones of my movement, naturally grown from years of struggle

Haha...  

I'm a leftist because every time I see homeless person I want to shoot myself, leftism gives both a reason the world is so fucked up that makes sense, and a way to fix it. Honestly if I stop being a leftist I'll kill myself because it will mean humanities just a fucked up piece of shit, and not a fucked up piece of shit because of capitalism.

When your busy considering giving a beretta a blowjob do you ever stop and think about actualy helping people? I work a minimum wage job that barely covers my rent let alone food. I subsist on mostly ramen and frozen Pizza. I spent the entire month of January living in my Jeep. And yet every time I go over to Wendy's on Lunch Break for a McChicken (or the Wendy's equivalent) I buy a extra one f there is a panhandler out on the corner and give it to him. Arnt I such a greedy capitolist pig who wants to live off the people. I am the fucking proletariat and I want none of you liberals help.

Although I don't like republicans they give a hell of alot more to charity than bleeding heart liberals. Liberals like yourself want to use the STATE to STEAL and redistribute wealth. Not like a disgusting capitolist pig like me who only wants to steal from the workers through wage slavery, sense I employ so many people, I want to help people on my own terms. I don't want your welfare, I want my freedom.

The best way to fight an Abrams however is not to fight it. Allow it to pass and within 6 hours it will have to refuel, which means you ambush the refueling trucks and leave the tanks stranded. They then become bunkers that can be knocked out with explosives or swarmed with infantry.

If you can't take it, destroy it, leave nothing for your enemies.

I wasn't suggesting leave them behind I was saying the tank would be left stranded out of gas, in ferfect position to be knocked out with IEDs and other weapons.

I use my family's 280 acre farm and timber to run my own Nihilist little joke of a micronation that's a parody of the Soviet Union. Basically and excuse to yell "suns out guns out in a Borat accent and give my friends titles like "Party minister of sexual activities", but I have seriously considered transforming it into a serious Ancap "micronation" (I prefer the term Freehold) and have alot of stuff written out, plus a basic militia structure and defensive plan incase SHTF.

Micronations alwase fascinated me like that.

What state, praytell?

It's located on the Mississippi River bluff in Iowa, across from Wisconsin. About 1/3 is arable the rest is timber.

Different vehicles have different capabilities. I believe that the Abrams comes with it's own atmosphere and it might night die to molotovs.

Remember there is no single solution to a problem.

Most modern tanks are totaly sealed and impervious to Finnish Grenades (Molotov Cocktails) but if a hatch is left open or initial damage done to the tank they can work.

Other vehicles would be vulnerable but in order to effectively take out a tank a better civilian method would be to use Dynamite or similar explosives to knock out the tracks.

The best way to fight an Abrams however is not to fight it. Allow it to pass and within 6 hours it will have to refuel, which means you ambush the refueling trucks and leave the tanks stranded. They then become bunkers that can be knocked out with explosives or swarmed with infantry.

Quote from: Syock

He is making reference to a thousand years.  That spans quite a bit of time and a lot of changes.  The Celts spanned Europe prior to the Romans.  When you get to referencing Irish Celts, and before that the Scottish Celts, you are talking about groups that managed to fight back the Romans,and had yet to be conquered by the local remnants of the Romans, now and then known as the English.  A thousand years easily reaches across these changes.  I think a thousand years is also a very conservative guess as the Celts were around long before that.  


Just to knit pick sense I'm a history major, that's not entirely true about the English being Roman, they are Saxons, the English are REALY Germans. The Romanized Celts or "Romano British" were killed, outbread, or forced into Wales. It's the welsh who's ancestors were Roman.

But I agree with he gist of your post.

It's an intimidation thing. If noone moves to invade then never bring up nukes of our little militia group who now controls them. But if someone comes the threat should atleast be made against his troops not necisarily his city's. as I said you could never use them, they are for intimidating people into leaving you alone. I understand what your saying and yes it makes sense but I think maintaining an existing Ancap system is worth being sneered in the Statist media like we already would be. Eventually the truth about the freedom and economic might of this country would bring people around. Everyone would be stashing their savings there, investing, building factories, ect without a government to tax and slow growth. We only need the nukes untill we reach the point of being economically indespensible to the world. That is why the US andChina can't fight, they are tied to the hip. With Ancapland full of their Swiss bank accounts and factories and investments forgien stateists will be in a similar position to the US now with China. Once that point comes, make a public show of disarming the nukes. They are only a weapon of intimidation to ensure the revolution survives long enough to fully establish an Ancap society without interference.

The sheer volume of ICBMs possesed by major nuclear powers ...

You are jumping between theoretical and actual.  I am not going to go in depth on the actual as it is irrelevant to this thread.

The tech to defend is there, and actually has been for decades in various forms.  The political will... not so much. 

If we were making an ancap society, we wouldn't have the arsenal of a big nuclear state.  The funding would be lacking because most people do not like nukes.  We would be the rogue nation they are all hopped up about.  We would be the biggest target in the world.  Whatever we have wouldn't be enough to defeat their existing meager defenses (making MAD obsolete), would be immoral (if you care about that), and amazing propaganda for governments around the world.  Personally I would abandon a nuclear ancap ASAP, and never would financially support it in the first place. 



Your making a theoretical leap too by assuming we would have few ICBMs. If it was a uprising of the people a committed group could make sure to capture our nuclear arsenal. There could potentially even be an uprising or mutiny in the final days. We know the location of silos, why couldn't we take them. Then if any nation began an invasion we threaten to turn them lose. It dosnt matter what the world thinks there is no forgien policy. What I'm saying is nukes are the ultimate trump card, the thing that makes world oppinion irrelivant. Should you use nukes? Fuck no casualties of civilians would be massive. there is no way to ever justify using those things, but they don't know we won't. Those people's fear of anarchism may be puffed up by the press but atleast anarchism will exist.

Rather than figuring out how to fight as an anarchist nation just prevent the fights in the first place. All the statists care about is not losing what they have and in a nuclear war everyone loses.

If illiterate Finnish Reindeer Herders could take out Soviet tanks in 1940 with a glass bottle full of gas and some storm matches (the first Molotov Cocktails) we can figure out how to take out these.

Conversely if an organization exists (possibly included in your NAP contract) that uses the sellof of former government property to maintain the MAD systems of a former Nuclear State you could esentialy hold the world hostage and say "try to invade us statists, just try and find out what happens."

MAD is all but obsolete at this point.  There are automated defensive systems around the world that shoot them down. 

You are absolutely wrong I'm afraid.


The sheer volume of ICBMs possesed by major nuclear powers far exceeds the capacity of defensive systems to handle. There are only three large scale ABM systems in the world with the majority of other AMB defence being short range interceptors who's performance is so poor that atleast a dozen are needed for them to be considered an effective counter for a single ICBM. Further, the advent of Multi-Warhead ICBMs has further outgunned defensive systems and Cold War tensions prevented the building of truly comprehensive and effective systems.

Even the most favorable estimates of defensive capeability still accept dozens of hits in a US-Vs-Russia Nuclear exchange with successive waves gaining higher hit rates as the supply of ABMs is drained. Nuclear Subs further as to the hit rate with their ability to strike suddenly from anywhere with a short fire to impact time and ability to remain hidden through initial salvos.

Even if a ABM is effective only one system in the world, the new and reletively small system put in by the US in Alaska, uses Kenetic missiles, with the rest being nuclear and still causing EMP and radiation. The US's Kenetic system covers a very limited area and has reletively few missiles. Similarly proposed laser built systems (and those few working ones not already scraped) still leave a mass of radioactive debris falling to earth.

MAD is alive and well.  Who the hell told you otherwise?

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?

Most likely in my mind: the statists cannot grasp the concept of voluntary government or that nothing government gives you is free because you already paid taxes for it. They would throw some sort off occupy riot burning the property of free citizens who refused to join the new governments and communes they tried to organize (you better believe the Commies would be all over that chance) and it would all end with some statist country rolling in with tanks to "end the chaos" and "restore order" and "free the people".

One possibility though is if the state that ruled prior was a nuclear power or even just a large military power. What woul happen to the weapons? You can throw open a armory and start selling rifles, grenades, even RPGs and Tanks but the other states out there won't be to happy about ICBMs and Nuclear Subs on the market to the highest bidder.

Conversely if an organization exists (possibly included in your NAP contract) that uses the sellof of former government property to maintain the MAD systems of a former Nuclear State you could esentialy hold the world hostage and say "try to invade us statists, just try and find out what happens." There are problems there but I think working out something like that could get somewhere so long as supporting this group was voluntary and contract based. After all we don't oppose government, we oppose involuntary and coercive government.

Either way though I think whatever internal problems there are would normalize and dissipate when April rolls around and people realize they don't pay taxes anymore. People have notoriously short attention spans. The real threat to AnCapia is States. They will inevitably see AnCapia as either an opertunity to expand their influence into what in their minds is a Somalia-esqe black hole, or see it as a threat, a becon for disidents where anything is available, where freedom seeking people flock, and where businesses migrate en-mass. The economic exodus of corporate HQs and factories to an AnCap nation alone would cause enough economic instability to make most industrial nations shit their pants.

That's why we need a global revolution. Just as republicans and democrats hate eachother untill its time to talk two-party system, States fight eachother non-stop until there is a "hole in the map".
