Mutual defense

“Those who support the state have one answer to all questions of how would ‘we’ do X? The answer ultimately is ‘through force.’ Sure, they will try to spin it as a positive, ignoring the negative elements, whether that be denied liberty, stolen property, missed opportunities, or other harms to innocent people. Still, ultimately, their answer is ‘pass a law,’ ‘create an agency,’ ‘increase regulation,’ or some other form of simply using state force. Even though that approach almost never actually solves the perceived problem, and by necessity creates other problems, the devout statist will offer it as a definitive solution that is supposed to silence all opposition. Agorists (and anarchists in general) don’t have the luxury of pat and unconsidered answers.” (11/16/21)
