For certain people, it's impossible to convince them to read something "old." If you find someone like that, the best things you can suggest are very short books, and online videos.
   I agree with JSNTS. It seems like most statists at the voter level are in this group. I enjoy it when a small few will listen to the audio version of Molyneaux's "Everyday Anarchy". It does say a bit that not one has been willing to go and get it themselves, I have sent it to each. Not one has come back a changed man, but has come back with questions. Curiosity will one day finish the job if they keep looking for answers. Another good resource of quick, pointed answers that raise a statists haunting questions is Larken Rose. He is on you tube. For the more adventurous weekend reader I think John Stuart Mills "On Liberty" is a good start, again not to give answers but to cause the statist to raise questions. If just one un answered question nags long enough, the road may be set.

Conscious anarchist since 2010. I always questioned what the state did and why. One day I was asked why a state? The rest was essentially a progression of logic. My greatest  regret...that while being brought up in an environment of intelligence that accepted and taught govmnt by force was a concrete necessity of lifes existense, I had not asked that question in an explicit manner on my own for so long.

On a side note, I thought ancoms were against private property, businesses, and profits. What is this guy doing with his own business?
        He did everything right, if you exclude that whole rejecting the principals he seems to be representing.

^Coast Guard? Really?  Huh How the hell do you correlate yellow and black with a branch of the military?
           It seems to resemble some of the communication flags they use. You should get one to hang by 9-11. I fly mine on my truck.

Most people dont recognize the an-cap flag. Of the very few that have asked me about it, it is generally confused for a coast guard flag. I do like the oppurtunity to discuss the meaning and ideals represented by the flag. I try to leave the word anarchy until the end. People seem the be less likely to shut off after they have already discussed and to some degree accepted, the principles before being scared with taboo words.

I agree that he did not violate the N.A.P. and therefore did not commit a crime. His actions were akin to, yet less immidiate than shooting an armed robber. This is because the president is an agressor extrodinaire.
I agree that writing words, any words on paper is not a crime. Its actually quite theraputic. One breaking into that safe and reading it, also does not make it a crime as that letter was forcibly removed from your possesion.
To type words and save it onto a computer is the same principle. Here is where I break from your analysis. Sending that threat into the world knowing it would be read, especially directly to the "target" or his/her representitives and handlers is an anouncement of intent. A decleration of sorts. It is not the act itself but a precursor. I dont believe it to be a punishable "offense",there has yet to be an actual victim, but had I recieved a similar threat to myself or family I would follow up with the sender. The recipient being the president or a janitor makes no difference.
The difference between Nathan and the president...The writings of Nathan are "I will do", while the president writes "You will do." Nathan writes of his own voluntary action while the president orders others that owe there livleyhood for most, and alligiance for some. If Nathan were to denounce his own words and not follow through, no violence would ensue. If a soldier were to not follow through with an order, even more violence would ensue as retaliation. Politicians are very nearly as guilty of criminal acts as the physical perpetrators themselves. The politicians know these orders will be followed under threat of violence. The military or police are the individuals who actually commit the crimes. These men and women pass the buck of violence from themselves to the targets specified rather than make a principled stand. Soldiers to a lesser extent since they recieve a more active violent response from the tatgets, whether initiated or as a defence. The police on the other hand are more intimately involved with a more unarmed and peacefull public. Their actions are to a large degree the initiators of force. They are the beares of the greatest guilt. Both suffer from the delusion of the Nurenburg defence. "Im just following orders." A cowardly justification to commit violence in the name of any that will grant the authority to do so.

I dont reject Ron Paul, I do however reject the idea that I need a "leader" to direct my life, no matter how little. I have met Dr Paul a few times and like him as a man. In our short conversations at no time did I ask him what could or should I do with my family or life. I also reject the idea that I may choose a leader to run the lifes of others. I choose true freedom rather than loose chains.

i have been asked to speak, and or find speakers for an anti war rally. i am a mediocre speaker at best. same goes for speech writing. i have an incomplete speech tentivley prpared. any ideas to include? suggestions would be greatly appretiated.

an anarchic society would by definition, have to arise from the collapse of the state. whether by accident, design, or nessesity, the absence of the state is required for an-cap. the best case scenario is simply one of non violence. after 100s of years on this land mass alone, the teachings of power have taken thier hold. from the devine right of kings to the devine right of guns, we are taught that power is authority, and authority is right. this will fall. the ready will fare best.

Feeling a bit optomistic today. Maybe she is rethinking the pretext of her beliefs and is one step closer to An-cap?

as best i can discern a syndicalist. I still cant find a clear answer on how one enforces a community or collective ownership in an anarchic setting. the eat the rich mentallity confuses me. how does one better ones self economically without being eaten?
43  General Category / General Discussion / Re: A great way to grow this forum on: August 17, 2011, 09:15:16 PM
i have invited a left anarchist to come and join. we dont agree on much beyond the violence of the state but he is intelligent and well thought out. i am currently reading one of his suggestions. one Murray Bookchin, Libertarian Municipalism. i will post opinion of the work when ive fleshed it out thouroughly. i hope he comes by to do the same.

How americans view the govmt should not change the usa/ussr comparasion. The two systems operate the same and will fall the same. The perception of the populace dictates only the speed. Americans will blame things on a specific political party but again perception will only play the part of a resistor as both parties are esentialy the same in their ends. The desire of the collapse of the system, or lack of, will only slow the recovery of the individual. Nessesity will bring about the personal responsibilty of self sufficiency.
