Alternatively, dealing with drunk driving in libertarian and anarchist political theory.

Does Drunk Driving Violate the NAP? If your answer is an unequivocal “No,” then you support the type of “anarchy” most people rightly fear: chaos.

Proponents of a libertarian or anarchist political society do not advocate a society of chaos. While a chaotic “free for all” or a state of lawlessness after a governmental collapse is colloquially known as “anarchy” (see Somalia, for example), this “failed state” lawlessness is not what anarchists propose when they advocate an anarchist political society. Anarchy does not mean no rules. It means no rulers. Anarchists and pure libertarians desire a society of rules, but they object to the rules being set by a central authority with a monopoly on force.

Even for the most vocal proponents of anarchism and the free market, one of the most difficult areas in which one can articulate a workable theory is in the field of law – without the government, what will the law be, how will it develop, and who will enforce it? Even the staunchest of libertarians will usually concede that the government is at least necessary to provide a basic criminal code as well as a police force and a court system to enforce it. Here I attempt to tackle those authors who have tried to define a workable anarchist solution to the rule of law (otherwise known as “private law”). Continue Reading »

As a tourist, Tallinn’s Old Town was a bit disappointing: very touristy and expensive. The Old Town did not feel “authentic” at all, being full of mostly identical tourist shops and themed restaurants (American, Indian, etc.). The abundance of English speakers was also disappointing. As far as the locals are concerned, however, the high prices and abundance of tourists is a good thing. Continue Reading »

While a proponent of free market solutions to most problems, no particular political theory can possibly provide an answer to every problem. So, in response to those who present faultless free market / libertarian / anarchist solutions, and in order to better articulate how a free market response would succeed and fail, I present the following critique.

How the Free Market Would Handle Health Care Epidemics and Quarantines

I’ll start with two major proponents of free market solutions, Robert P. Murphy and Christopher Cantwell.
