Everyday Anarchy - Part 5 of 7

Stefan Molyneux 2008-08-13 15:00
Anarchy and Morality Another paradox that anarchy brings into uncomfortable view is the contradiction between coercion and morality. We all in general recognize and accept the principle that where there is no choice, there can be no morality. If a man is told to commit some evil while he has a gun pressed to his head, we would have a hard time categorizing him as evil ' particularly compared to...

Exclusive to STR April 23, 2008 Separating facts from myths is always one of the greatest challenges when examining the past. In particular, narratives that benefit those in power are particularly resistant to rational examination, since they tend to be propagated among the impressionable and credible ' particularly children, in the form of state 'education.'
A Handout for Statists

Exclusive to STR November 27, 2007 In the interests of efficiency, I have decided to distill every argument I have ever had with your average statist, so that I can hand it out to those who argue that government is voluntary, if I don't like it I can leave, taxation is not violence, etc. I thought this might also be of use to you, because life is short. Me: Tell me, do you think that violence...
My Secret Life Exposed

Exclusive to STR November 9, 2007 I guess the time has come to finally come out of the closet. For the past 20 years, I've been living a double life. The strain of my deception has finally gotten to me, and I wish to officially come clean. I live a secret life as a black man.
Libertarians and Taxation: To Pay or Not to Pay?
0
Stefan Molyneux 2007-10-10 15:00
Exclusive to STR October 11, 2007 As libertarians, the question of participation in a statist society can be a great challenge. How can we claim to be resolutely anti-state, anti-war and anti-violence while at the same time driving on public roads, consuming public services, and paying the very taxes that make the coercive power of the state possible?

Exclusive to STR September 6, 2007 For the audio version of this article, please click here. When I was younger, and optimistic to the point of being na've, I had an economics professor ' let's call him Dr. Destructo ' who repeatedly made the following argument:

My Son: Klan Reformer

Exclusive to STR May 30, 2007 Ah, my son, my son . . . . He's 40 years old, and really needs to change careers. When he was 20, he joined the Ku Klux Klan, because he was concerned that the Klan was getting too big, too aggressive. In those days, they were lynching some poor man every week, which he felt was wrong. He felt that the Klan should limit itself to a lynching every month, and that...

In my role as a business consultant, I am often asked to provide solutions to highly complex problems. Recently, a large, politically well-connected agricultural business paid me a fortune to provide them with a five-year plan on how to best allocate their assets, capital and human resources in order to maximize profitability. The complexity of the business challenges involved were overwhelming,...

Exclusive to STR September 27, 2006 One of the truly 'hot button' libertarian issues is immigration. While most libertarians would reject the argument 'we must have taxation to pay for the welfare state,' many do support the position that 'we must control immigration because of the welfare state.'
