Why Am I an Anarchist?

Source: Everything Voluntary
by Owen Alexander

“Simply put, I am a selfish bastard. My ego is too important to me, and no one values my life more than I do. No one ever will. I value my life, and consequently I value the freedom to control my body and property, as those two things directly allow my life to persist. If I am the one who would value these things the most, how could I willingly let anyone else control them? How could I want anyone else to be responsible for my life? The docile and meek excuse non-self-government because they believe they are still free, so long as they play by the rules of their leaders.” (07/25/22)
