Woods did make one error, and it’s a common one. There is no Constitutional right to vote in a federal election. While it is unconstitutional to deny votes, this does not guarantee a right to vote. It’s a common misconception, and an important one, I think.
Other than that, he just needs to watch how he drops the “brains-bomb,” and he should be good.
Here’s a secret you can’t share with anyone.
Tom Wood’s doesn’t believe in the Constitution’s legitimacy.
nor do I.
Would you characterize yourself, then, as a Pournelle Irrationalist, believing that there is no way to rationally solve man’s (read: society) problems and ills?
This is one thing that I have had a difficult time understanding about Anarchist thought. It seems to operate under the assumption that man is a rational creature and, as Adam Smith described it, by looking out for my own self-interest, I am also, as a second order effect, helping society as a whole.
This does, however, contradict many observations of humanity in general, especially the barbaric effects of mob phenomenon. While this could be attributed to the idea that any kind of authoritative social structure is inherently evil, is that entirely accurate? I can’t say for sure.
One thing I will make clear is that I’m not a troll. I’m borderline anarchist and a definite libertarian. To what extent remains to be determined. That being said, I’ve been exploring anarchist thought, trying to figure out exactly what’s going on. This is one reason why I read your site as frequently as I do.
One thing I think we will agree on is the government that governs least, governs best.
There is a rational way to solve mans problems and ills, its called a voluntary society.
When people are left to their own devices without “government” involvement, the market takes care of all the problems.
Government is a monopoly on force. This is totally unnecessary and barbaric. Force must not be monopolized by any one party or group of people.
