Criticisms of right-wing libertarianism, low effort gotchas, and unpopular opinions should be limited to this thread. You aren't owed attention or a platform to speak out against our views, any new threads attacking anarcho-capitalism will be deleted. COVENANT COMMUNITIES A lot of posters seem to be ignorant on what a covenant community is and what its implications are. A covenant community is a small, homogeneous, gated community with strict controls on who can and cannot enter, who can and cannot gain residency, and what conduct must be observed within the community. In other words, it is a privatized micro-ethnostate. The idea was popularized by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, attached are some select quotes from Hoppe explaining the covenant community in his own words: >there would be little or no “tolerance” and “openmindedness” so dear to left-libertarians. Instead, one would be on the right path toward restoring the freedom of association and exclusion implied in the institution of private property. There exists a legal principle known as estoppel, which says those who do not value or abide by a certain norm are not entitled to appeal to that norm in their own defense. Commies don't believe in property rights, so they have estopped themselves from appealing to property rights in their own defense. Therefore, there is no need for a covenant community to wait until the commie commits a trespass before physically removing it.

Constitutional Libertarian Monarchy Anonymous 10/21/2020 (Wed) 00:21:51 Id:dd597e No. 3907 [Reply]
What do you think of the concept of Constitutional Libertarian Monarchy? The King would be responsible for enforcing the NAP based libertarian constitution. Imagine, for example, if the British Empire had fully compromised with George Washington and adopted a libertarian constitution in order to keep the American colonies within the Empire. This is one historical way I think a Constitutional Libertarian Monarchy could have arisen nya~
>>3907 Yes. See Brazil where the monarchy was so successful it didn't have to actively use its power for decades, to the point where an entire generation grew up thinking it was no longer necessary and overthrew it creating the chaos it prevented. This is the only time where a state office has done so well it became defunct, and it is one of the greatest ironies where communists think their "dictatorship of the proleteriat" would fade away under advanced socialism yet have historically only ever gotten more powerful, while under the private and domineering hands of a monarch stands the single greatest example of liberty preceding authority begotten by individual wisdom. The United States only does as well as it does with a quasi-absolute arbitrator in the Supreme Court, in which judges sit for life to enable them to make decisions with a free conscience knowing their office is secured regardless of the political ramifications of their rulings. Adding a monarch to the judicial branch to personify the virtues of the libertarian regime would inspire faith in its values, moderate immoral excess, and establish a living tradition to be carried throughout successive generations to ensure the consistent interpretation of justice.

Listen up kiddo. We need to have a little chat. You thought you could lurk around here just because you're a cool guy and we share the same worldviews? You thought /liberty/ was open and free for everyone? That's not how it works, pal. This isn't some hippie-dippie commie shithole. Nothing in life is free besides the cheese in a mousetrap. You gotta leave a post in this thread every time you visit the board if you wanna keep the lights on over here. Yes, I know, I know, but someone had to say it. You know how the economy is these days, it's tough for everyone. Don't make it more difficult for the rest of us, we all have to carry our own weight. We all have to do our part to keep the place running. There's no room for freeloaders around here. Leave something in this thread each time you visit the board and we can keep on being friends.

do you guys consider him an austrian? he seemed libertarian leaning but not quite austrian especially on his opposition to the gold standard. yes i know i misspelled the filename
austrian has more to do with the preferred methodology in studying economics. You also don't oppose things in economics, you describe things. So, you could be an austrian and oppose the gold standard. Of course mainstream economics make us believe that economics should have policy prescriptions built into it, but that's just bad science. In any case he was a cool guy and his son is cool too.

"Corruption" Anonymous 07/27/2020 (Mon) 22:14:36 Id:b98c6b No. 3444 [Reply]
I've noticed how Marxist's goto tagline excuse is "corruption," and how often "corruption" is used as a weasel word or just bland excuse. The most blatant example is "Why did the Venezuelan government collapse? Oh, 'corruption.'" ( https://invidio.us/watch?v=IYfgvS0FA7U ) "European governments are so much less 'corrupt' than the U.S. or other governments around the world." There's no critical thought about how--say--maybe a ridiculously large government might be the cause of incredibly amounts of "corruption" or something. In other words, corruption is often defined in such a way that it allows the user to ignore root causes. That's not even getting into how would you even define 'corruption.' I've also noticed how a lot of international rankings have started including nebulous calculations and rankings of 'corruption' now. It seems like it's built into the rankings just to fix the conclusions they feel the indexes are 'supposed' to draw.

Yes, kill the kings, and the state. But also, kill the laws. We cannot call ourselves "free" when we literally have things that literally doesn't exist controlling our egos. You, ancaps, think that you're free, but you're a slave of the money, of the idea of being richer and richer. Sure you can be the boss of some workers, but you're an abstract idea's slave. We have to burn all the capitalist shit to be free? Yes. But communism is also not enough. You're the people's slave. You cannot think for yourself in communism, because, first, the community, then, you.

What would your ideal libertarian society be? Anonymous 04/25/2020 (Sat) 10:04:33 Id:c344f1 No. 2795 [Reply]

Describe what your idea of the ideal libertarian society would be like. The society I want (and yes, I know this sounds autistic), would essentially be a confederate minarchist voluntary monarchy. Essentially, the Royal central government's only duty would be maintaining a standing national army to defend from foreign invasion. If a covenant community wanted to be member, they would have to pay a small tax to fund the army. Essentially a subscription fee. The benefits of this would be protection from the national army and a title of nobility for the community's leader. Of course, membership in this confederacy would be voluntary. The communities could opt out at any time, which would mean that the national army would have no obligation to protect them, but they could always raise a militia or hire mercenaries for this purpose.

Committees Anonymous 10/10/2020 (Sat) 15:08:47 Id:856837 No. 3860 [Reply]
You know how Mises and Hayek have fundamental arguments that strike at the core of why socialism doesn't work, and then after that we have tons of real life examples of what they were talking about? It feels like committees are the other way around, there are tons of real life examples of how absolutely a shit structure they are, but they're begging for a theoretical explanation as to why they often produce the worst decisions (or really even someone pointing out to the wider world that they're so terrible, there are so many better options than forming a committee, and that making a committee really should be your last ditch option). It's to the point where I'll often hear people joke, "A committee must've made that decision!" and then not only is it often the case, but there's also no blame laid at the committee's feet. Why are committees so terrible, why aren't there more attacks against them, and why do so many organizations continue to use them?

>>3863 Nah, I stand by what I said. Also, it's not namedropping. Mises is short for the Misesian Calculation Problem, and Hayek is short for the Hayekian Knowledge Problem. If you read a bit more, you'd probably know that, instead of just responding with meme buzzwords and echoes.
>>3863 Also, there are two other people on this board. I'm legitimately curious about why you're posting here.
>>3860 >Why are committees so terrible, why aren't there more attacks against them, and why do so many organizations continue to use them? They'll never tell you this but many corporations suffer from the same central planning problems as socialist planned economies. The ones that don't are much more technologically integrated and override bureaucratic infighting for resources with intense central control.

I really cannot reconcile the complete degeneracy brought by social media with my libertarianism. I know all the arguments about how the State made things worse by destroying the family, divorce laws, various subsidies to women, etc but I really can't. I also know about closed communites and such stuff, but they don't seem realistic anymore. Current technology doesn't allow anything but the rise of big States IMO.

>>3834 You're looking for answers in the wrong places. The sorry state of our society is not because of the government structure but because of godlessness. Democracy has contributed in large part to promoting godlessness, and replacing the church with a horrible perversion of it in the form of scientism. It heavily incentivizes making the wrong choices, but the proximate cause is still those wrong choices, i.e. that men have become secular.
I'd argue the opposite. Technology is helping the state maintain it's power, but it's also helping us gain power over the state. Take 3d printers for example. You can print almost anything with them, including guns! And even before 3d printers, the knowledge to make homemade guns had been around for decades! Technology has made a lot more people self-reliant, and I think that self-reliantness is going to make the government "obsolete".

Is it time to obsolete them? In the modern day we have so many financial institutions that can serve the purposes they serve better that they no longer seem necessary. They do not store wealth in hard assets anymore, they are not better than private finance at finding opportunity, they do not provide any insurance due to fractional reserve lending, they do not even issue government fiat anymore because the central banks are directly buying assets. The only purpose left is retail banking, which is just glorified accounting, and has been made obsolete with the innovation of the blockchain. Are they simply just slow and expensive middlemen?

The federal government is bad precisely because it has power for "Karens" to abuse. On a daily basis, local Karens are worse because they can wield a lot of power and make your life unbearable. On the other, it only takes a few Karens at the top to intrude on everyone's rights, but they usually have to push harder and way for an opportunity to push their agenda. Contrast this with the local level, where they get their policies in because nobody cares and nobody can be bothered to watch them and tell them no.
