This video unwittingly demonstrates how anarcho-capitalism fails. Ancaps claim that once we get rid of government, the market will find better alternatives to protect individual rights. But as this vid shows, the market (or the "throng") can just ignore the government right now, and yet, it doesn't.

In other words, we are already in a state of anarchy, and the market has chosen government as the best method of protecting individual rights. #anarchy #anarchocapitalists #libertarian

Richard, you have the correct response to Corey's argument. The state exists because of an inculcated worldview - a worldview that the state obviously takes great care in maintaining. But worldviews are not forever.

Another point is that if the market were naturally supportive of the state, then the state would not have to introduce so many market distortions to keep itself alive. The market is not actually free at this point - otherwise anarchists (for example) would be able to go off and establish an anarchist community without being bothered by the state. Of course the state cannot permit this, or many other expressions of the market.

That's not to say that a free market cannot generate some statist examples; personally I think it would do so, and that is what Panarchy is all about.

Gasoline prices in the U.S. are the lowest they've been in four years. Why? WSJ's Jason Bellini has #TheShortAnswer.

8:42 "Taxes are not a voluntary process."  Well then, if wanting to give more money to the government makes you "patriotic", then you must not be that patriotic if you need the government to force you to give money.

It should be noted that this absurd system of "mandated benefits" didn't start with Obamacare; it's been going on at the state level for decades, which is the main cause of high insurance costs in the first place.  Obamacare compounds the problem by establishing Federal-level mandates. #obamacare #aca
