10 Debunked Conspiracy Theories Democrats Still Believe!

The problem with political decisions isn’t that most of us don’t get our own way. It’s also that these decisions are usually imposed on us against our will, by threats of violence…Democracy, as we practice it, is unjust. We expose innocent people to high degrees of risk because we put their fate in the hands of ignorant, misinformed, irrational, biased, and sometimes immoral decision makers.

Unifying the Masses Against the Psychopathic Deep State (feat. James Corbett)

Is it really a surprise that as the government gets bigger and bigger and bigger, everything in life becomes more and more hyper-political?
When you think about it, right, there are such profound differences that people have… you will have right now in this audience… a Christian sitting next to an atheist, the most profound difference in belief: one person believes that the person next to them is going to burn in a pit of Hell forever, and that atheist looks over at you and believes you are delusional.
But you’re fine. Like, you’re not going to war, because it’s separated from politics. Now if tomorrow there was going to be a vote over whether the government is Christian or atheist, those people start going to war, because they’re warring over… who rules over you, and so, the problem with all of this, with comedy and with everything else online — it’s not that we have differences; it’s that we have political differences.
Politics is poison, and that’s why you want to reduce the size of government…

The Utilitarian Case for Voluntaryism

If I try to take something from you, you will resist, imposing costs on both of us in the form of property damage and bodily harm, in addition to the cost of security you may incur to prevent future acts of coercion. It’s not just that voluntary acts tend to raise total utility and coercive acts have no such tendency; coercive acts actually tend to decrease total utility.

– Danny Duchamp, The Voluntaryist Handbook, p. 89

Danny Duchamp creates essays and videos on philosophy, economics and politics from a consequentialist libertarian perspective.

The State is the Health of War

Critics often dismiss private law by alleging that disputes between enforcement agencies would lead to combat — even though this happens between governments all the time! In truth, the incentives for peaceful resolution of disputes would be far greater in market anarchy than the present system. Combat is very expensive, and private companies take much better care of their assets than government officials take care of their subjects’ lives and property.

Who Was Tony Timpa?

“Unless it be to do justice on an offender,” Locke continued, no one may “take away, or impair the life, or what tends to the preservation of the life, the liberty, health, limb, or goods of another.” Long traces out a key implication of this idea: “Lockean equality involves not merely equality before legislators, judges, and police, but, far more crucially, equality with legislators, judges, and police.” One moral standard for all, no exceptions, no privileges. That’s a fitting summation of the libertarian philosophy. The good news is that most people are more than halfway there.

“Only Politicians Have Rights!” – A Propaganda Analysis of The Myth of Ownership

The very same people who say that government has no right to interfere with sexual activity between consenting adults believe that the government has every right to interfere with economic activity between consenting adults.

A Right-Wing Critique of the Police State – Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

The next step in the development of what would later become anarcho-capitalism was the radical one taken by Gustave de Molinari, in his essay “The Private Production of Security.” Molinari asked if the production of defense services, which even the classical liberals took for granted had to be carried out by the State, might be accomplished by private firms under market competition. Molinari made express reference to the insight we have been developing thus far, that society operates according to fixed, intelligible laws. If this is so, he said, then the provision of this service ought to be subject to the same laws of free competition that govern the production of all other goods. Wouldn’t the problems of monopoly exist with any monopoly, even the State’s that we have been conditioned to believe is unavoidable and benign?

Why Democratic Socialists Are Wrong About “Profit”

One of the most incredible attributes of free markets is the ability to harmonize our self-interests with the interests of greater society. Contrary to the popular demonization of profits as extraction of surplus value, profits in freed markets actually represent the adding of value to society. Making a profit in free markets requires one to combine or transform some good(s) in such a way that its resulting configuration is valued more by the consumer than the cost of labor and original materials, including time, used to produce it.
