To be fair, I don't know the guy who made that video but he does come across as at least a big douchebag as he makes Vogter out to be.

Welllll, if you put me on the spot like this....
What got to me is how he went on how he kept Vogter around because he was usefull to him, which kind of made his sound like someone who's willing to keep up friendly term on false , what's the word, pretense?, just because it furthers his own agenda. I mean I don't like Vogter, but the guy making the video makes it to me like choosing between a cesspool and a dung heap.

"I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war, a position, or two, or maybe three. I don’t know. I think he has more war positions than he’s had wives." --Rand Paul

"1800 Humans know slaves can't be free because there is no history of it working

1900 Humans know machines can't fly because there is no history of it working

2000 Humans know anarcho-capitalism won't work because there is no history of it working.

'there is no history of it working.' is a really lousy predictor of the future." --jeffiek

"The spirit of 1776 is not dead. It has only been slumbering. The body of the American people is substantially republican. But their virtuous feelings have been played on by some fact with more fiction; they have been the dupes of artful manoeuvres, and made for a moment to be willing instruments in forging chains for themselves. But time and truth have dissipated the delusion, and opened their eyes...I sincerely join you in abjuring all political connection with every foreign power: and though I cordially wish well to the progress of liberty in all nations, and would for ever give it the weight of our countenance, yet they are not to be touched without contamination, from their other bad principles. Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to T. Lomax, 12 March 1799

I'm pretty sure I've quoted this before.
But still, as an anarchist, it's pretty freakin' awesome:

You guys should read Native American Anarchism (1932) by Eunice Minette Schuster. This was taken from a book review:

 
Quote
The second chapter of this book is devoted to "Anarchism Adolescent - Individualism in the Romantic Period (1812 - 1860)". The author begins by maintaining that the anarchist impulse in this period grew out of colonial Antinominianism and the principle of laissez-faire. The author shows how in particular the writings of Thomas Jefferson combined individualism with agrarianism and thus gave birth to a form of proto-anarchism. Further, the frontier in the West offered a means for those who believed in the principle of individualism to live on their own independently of the State. The author also explains how various impulses arising for example from the philosophy of Rousseau or the Platonic ideal of "Know Thyself" or out of various offshoots of Calvinism came to approximate anarchism. In particular, William Ellery Channing attacked the Puritan idols of New Englanders and thus gave birth to Unitarianism. In New England, Transcendentalists such as Emerson and Thoreau came to embody principles of self-reliance and civil disobedience. Thoreau refused to pay taxes and became an ardent abolitionist. Many of Thoreau's writings could frankly be described as anarchistic, in which he maintained that the government is best which rules not at all and in his opposition to government in general. A second religious offshoot which involved an anarchistic impulse was that of Perfectionism, perhaps best represented by John Humphrey Noyes. It too sought a form of spiritual anarchy. In addition, non-resistance came to play an important part in the formation of anarchistic ideas. From Christ's dictum "Resist not evil" sprang many Christian Non-Resistance and Peace Societies. Further, abolitionism became linked with anarchism, though many anarchists were also to see the dilemma in both opposing slavery and maintaining that the South had a right to secede.


Yes so you commie anarchists can eat a dick*. Telling me I'm not a "real" anarchist" Go to hell.

"Government is good at one thing: It knows how to break your legs, hand you a crutch, and say, 'See, if it weren't for the government, you wouldn't be able to walk.'" --Harry Browne

"I say that the Second Amendment doesn't allow for exceptions — or else it would have read that the right 'to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, unless Congress chooses otherwise.' And because there are no exceptions, I disagree with my fellow panelists who say the existing gun laws should be enforced. Those laws are unconstitutional [and] wrong — because they put you at a disadvantage to armed criminals, to whom the laws are no inconvenience." --Harry Browne

R.I.P. Harry Browne.
