We have a purpose and the gravity, pulling us from "them" to we.

"The private ownership envisaged by the anarcho-capitalists would be very different from that which we know. It is hardly going too far to say that while the one is nasty, the other would be nice. In anarcho-capitalism there would be no National Insurance, no Social Security, no National Health Service and not even anything corresponding to the Poor Laws; there would be no public safety-nets at all. It would be a rigorously competitive society: work, beg or die. But as one reads on, learning that each individual would have to buy, personally, all goods and services needed, not only food, clothing and shelter but also education, medicine, sanitation, justice, police, all forms of security and insurance, even permission to use the streets (for these also would be privately owned), as one reads about all this a curious feature emerges: everybody always has enough money to buy all these things.

"There are no public casualty wards or hospitals or hospices, but neither is there anybody dying in the streets. There is no public educational system but no uneducated children, no public police service but nobody unable to buy the services of an efficient security firm, no public law but nobody unable to buy the use of a private legal system. Neither is there anybody able to buy much more than anybody else; no person or group possesses economic power over others.

"No explanation is offered. The anarcho-capitalists simply take it for granted that in their favoured society, although it possesses no machinery for restraining competition (for this would need to exercise authority over the competitors and it is an anarcho- capitalist society) competition would not be carried to the point where anybody actually suffered from it. While proclaiming their system to be a competitive one, in which private interest rules unchecked, they show it operating as a co-operative one, in which no person or group profits at the cost of another."

if by public you mean government, then of course not its anarchism... if by public you mean voluntary-communal solutions of course those who support that are free to create/fund it... if by public you mean free at point of use? of course those that support it can/will create those solutions...

really people need to stop getting their information from such ignorant sources, with little understanding of what theyre even criticizing or an inability to define things properly... hard to know which

"When the price of exercising one's freedom is terribly high, what practical difference is there between the commands of the state and those issued by one's employer? . . . Though admittedly the circumstances are not identical, telling disgruntled employees that they are always free to leave their jobs seems no different in principle from telling political dissidents that they are free to emigrate."

THIS IS AWESOME! A 17 year old worker at a Hardee's in Knoxville, Tennessee was outside washing windows when he saw an elderly customer unsteady on her feet as she walked to her car.

He rushed over to lend his arm and ensure she was safe, escorting her to her vehicle.

Another customer in the parking lot saw this, snapped a quick picture with a cell phone and posted it on Hardee's Facebook page.

This young man's act of kindness was rewarded by his employer with a $1000 bonus.

He's apparently quite embarrassed about all the attention but says he'll welcome the money to help pay for college next year, when he enters freshman year as an engineering major.

SHARE THIS and show that there are VERY good kids out there who have been raised right and have compassion.

Thanks to my former colleague Curt Autry for bringing this to my attention.

Have you ever seen a post, comment, or reply that absolutely reeked of behind-the-scenes compensation by corporations like Monsanto? In the growing age of internet activism, and the expansion of so...

I know we can do this.
Introduction
I'm Franklin,the scientific method and the potential it has to improve the world, brings me joy. I no longer have political leanings and am overwhelmingly disgusted with consumer culture as technology has made them irrelevant. I don't think societies problems have solutions in past ideologies, laws, regulation or religions but I have faith in you and your ability to change and grow. Why? Because you are a human being (presumably) and we are all capable of amazing things.
Bragging rights
none to speak of.
