What if – just what if – the system is flawed this way. What would we expect to see? And what would the response be of the academics on the inside, when criticized from the “cranks” on the outside?
“Anarchism denotes a spirit and strength of character that other philosophies fail to discern, that other people fail to grasp or care about. Anarchism screams acceptance of humanity, and it declares all individuals as totally sovereign, only governable by the will and moral compass of their own passions.”
Being an anarchist is not just a catchy and trendy, temporary way of life; nor is it a passing fancy or a cool philosophy to use for the sake of winning arguments.
Anarchism is deeply, intimately personal.
I chose anarchism because I do not believe I should have to obey someone for the sake of obeying. I chose it because I know “government authority” is a useless and dangerous concept, which only gets innocent people caged, harmed or killed. I chose anarchism because I enjoy independence, because I loathe the idea of being ruled, and because I acknowledge that freedom from institutional and social violence leads to happiness and love. I chose it because I believe people are innately free, that they have the power and decency to live their own life and solve their own problems, without a perpetual father figure looming over and judging their decisions.

The Doctor and Camille find themselves caught in a war of desperation, and the cost for freedom may be too high even for them..

I’m not exactly sure why libertarians are hated so much. I hear so many strawman arguments about our position: the position that says that other people are not your property.
Take the photo, for example. “All cats are libertarians. Completely dependent on others but fully convinced of their own independence.” This is a strawman of our position, of course. Libertarians understand that we are all interdependent. No man is an island, so to speak, so we all must work together in the division of labor. The difference between the statist and the libertarian is that latter has no sense of entitlement to the labor of others, whereas the former demands it due to birthright. The “independence” that we desire is freedom from arbitrary rule.
