I thought I would come over here and start a topic that might be too "radical" for those in the other libertarian group.

Personally, I am 100% a free market advocate; an unapologetic capitalist. I secretly think that tax evasion is not only a justifiable crime but a civic duty!

I think of my political beliefs, such as they are, as "rational anarchy" because I cannot figure out from the evidence when government ever works. No matter what, government is a pact between the the idle rich (who did not earn their money) and the idle poor (who do not want to earn their money); the productive, the entrepreneurs, and engineers, the creaters, the inventors, the innovators, the artists, the risk takers are not even part of the equation except as golden egg.

Until the productive, et al, quit accepting the contraints placed upon them by the state and those who operate/benefit from it, there can be no change.

If you read God of the Machine, you might recall that Patersen relates in that book the inspirational story for Atlas Shrugged: that in the latter days of the Roman Empire, the artisans and craftsmen were taxes above 100%--they laid down their tools in revolt.

You are not too radical. I am an anarcho-capitalist as well.

I actually like to think that it's the Keynesian's that are radical in their thinking. Radically incorrect lol. That's my standing joke. I am 100% for Free Markets as well. If you all have not heard him yet, I suggest Stefan Molyneux's podcasts at He gives excellent arguments for Anarcho-capitalism.

I have listened to many of his podcasts and read his articles. He does give good arguments, but he has other things which I vociferously and strongly disagree with.
