This is a superb contribution from FormerlyBrainwashed. Some of the commenters make great points. It's very thought-provoking, read it when you're feeling awake and ready to think. The article is okay, but I'm four pages into the comments and I'm amazed. There are 13 pages of comments!!!!

Please continue posting high-quality webpages like this when you find them, we all can benefit from reading them.

Agreed. The article itself was interesting, but the comments represent superb dialogue.

Thanks for the link.  Was a good read but I was rather confused about the point of the article.  If the point of the article is to convince non anarchists that ancapitalism isn't like state capitalism, then I understand.  I have given up on C4SS because of the many anarcho-collectivist articles, but maybe I should read them for the comments.  Anarcho-"Capitalism" is Impossible was a provocative title and drew me in as a reader.  I agreed with several points, mainly the ways ancaps define capitalism.  Some of the assetions about what will exist and won't exist was too prophetic, such as a billionaire would find it too hard to protect his property.  This falls into the category of "I can't imagine how they could pay for it, so it isn't possible."

However, I found it worth my time reading because it provoked a discussion about the nature of ethical property claims in the comments.  This has, and shall likely continue to be the area of anarchial theory that keeps me up at night the most.  Anytime you come across any such article, please continue to post!

Helio-

If you enjoy working through mental gymnastics as it relates to "property" then here is yet another interesting read for you to chew on (linked in the comments of the original article referenced in this thread).

Is Property Theft? http://anarchywithoutbombs.com/2010/03/07/is-property-theft/

In fact - The "Is Property Theft?" article is worthy of it's own thread (but I'll just leave it as is). Wink

I saw lots of flaws in this article.  It would take me pages to refute it point by point.
