Why don't libertarians respect chaos theory more?


It feels like a great way to get out of the old determinism v. free will debate by arguing about whether certain classes of natural phenomena are predictable as opposed to 'predetermined.' You can better incorporate the salients points of Hayek's local knowledge and Mises' calculation arguments. You can point out socialist hubris. Finally, you can actually speak in a harder and more rigorous scientific point of view.

I'm looking for books/articles that depicts in a positive light the libertarian era in the US. In particular I'm fascinated about the rise of big companies, private infrastructures, etc

I can always find hints of this in some books of austrian economists but I'm looking for something more specific and more of a light read.

Do you have any suggestions?

>I'm looking for books/articles that depicts in a positive light the libertarian era in the US. In particular I'm fascinated about the rise of big companies, private infrastructures, etc

I suppose I could suggest the three volume work of "The Economic Mind in American Civilization" but the notion of calling the 1800s (or any era in US history) a "libertarian era" is rather erroneous.

One thing you'll notice with American history in general is that for the most part, liberty is very rarely every gained throughout the course of US history, rather it's slowly lost through a period of a few hundred years to what we have now. This can be noted with the development of the Federal Reserve, the introduction of the income tax, the implications of the Civil War, World War 1, etc etc. That's not to say there's not notable events that contradict this trend (such as the repeal of the alien and sedition acts) but such acts are hardly indicative of US history as a whole.



thanks. I know liberty is slowly lost and never gained, but I think in the early period liberty was enough to be considered a libertarian era. The birth of the Federal Reserve was probably the finishing blow.

David Beito's book From Mutual Aid to the Welfare State: Fraternal Societies and Social Services, 1890-1967 is wonderful and a must read. It actually made me angry reading it, imagining what things could have looked like now before the welfare state came in and killed it off. Vid related is Beito giving a talk about the Voluntary City and Mutual Aid Societies at Libertopia 2010.

The US isn't sure whether it wants to be a Rome or a Greece so to speak and walks the tightrope between a "Old republic" Timocracy and a French / Greek democracy with the US developing capitalism and the South / slave states remaining in sort of a Pseudo-Feudal / Capitalist haze


Lincoln (The liberator) shatters the Feudal / slave power in the south and opens the rest of the country up to capitalist development fully progressing it to a new mode of production


Class conflicts become more evident / Crisis of capitalism etc

Should people have to pay for water?

11 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


>Should people have to pay for water?

"Should people have to pay for ____" always comes down to three simple questions.

1: Is the ____ you're taking somebody else's product?


2: Is the ____ you're taking a resource from somebody else's land?


3: Is the ____ you're taking a finite good that would be noticed if mysteriously missing?


If you want it without paying, ask nicely. People get shot over tampering with streams. Filling a canteen is a different story but the average "I don't wanna pay for stuff" kid probably isn't going hiking any time soon.


Nothing is free thus people can not have rights to free stuff.



Hmm. Water flunks two out of three and I don't believe in land.



i dont think it is very scarce



I think the better argument is that if it was very scarce then it DEFINITELY should require payment.

Ancaps will build a welcoming home for the white man, but only if he is a high-IQ alpha male (not a commie/neet-soc).



I don't care if I survive the "fallout dream" so long as the statist cucks don't outlive me.

nah, too much have happened for it to become beyond a coincidence. Also you are probably one of them.

> prevent libertarians from rising up

People in government want to keep their jobs as well as justify their existence. You will do whatever it takes to keep your miserable but easy job with 100,000$ retirement funds.



>never attribute to malice that which is explained by stupidity

On the whole, I agree. However, when you see disparate groups of people all exhibiting the exact same kind of stupidity at the most opportune possible moments repeatedly, it's much more difficult to presume innocence.




>White Nationalism

lol wtf are whites a nation now?



It's not simply a co-inky-dink, all that anti-white SJW bullshit is one of many tools of statecraft being used to weaken and exploit a population. Firstly, it's easier to control low IQ niggers than whites, and secondly, it's easier to control someone who has been shamed and beaten down from birth (modern white men) than someone who is completely confident in himself and his abilities (white men of the past).



>People in government want to keep their jobs as well as justify their existence. You will do whatever it takes to keep your miserable but easy job with 100,000$ retirement funds.

This too. National-socialism is still socialism, it's more likely that governments would let neetsocs in or copy their policies (as they did after WW2), instead of letting libertarians get into power and erode credibility in the institution of government.

>In ancapistan why wouldn't rich governments just buy all the land?

If they're doing so fairly, then they're paying you well enough to buy more land. Likely this isn't the case.

In a land GRAB, the historical habit of claythirsty governments and their cronies, the idea is to get people to "sell" the land for so cheap that they become tenants instead of owners from that moment forward. In other words, the government gains land it does not appropriately trade land for land.

That means coercion, that means aggression, that means McNuke™.

If American Communists pay through GoFundMe and Patreon, Centrists pay through Paypal and Credit/Debit Card, ☭☭European Communists☭☭ pay through WeChat and Yandex Pay, what will /librety/lads pay with?

Bitcoin and Ethereum are excellent alternatives to unreliable (((bank accounts))) that can be closed for being a part of an Alt-Right organization. (see → >>12778968 or http://archive.is/YIAOR) However, not everyone trusts opening a Bitcoin/Ethereum wallet with a clear Chinese entity used by druggies and porn addicts. The time for a /pol/ form of payment is now.

Here is the system I am suggesting… name it “/librety/lend™”

>User 1 wants a product from User 2

>User 1 send paper money directly to /pol/pay with a form attached

>User 2 receives the money physically, User 2 sends the money to his Church

/librety/lads could even give money to other countries. If a German from Berlin needs a product from America. The American could send his money to /librety/lend, /librety/lend HAM radio’s /librety/lend Berlin, and /librety/pay Berlin sends the money to the German. /librety/lend Berlin would be supplied the money in advance by investors.

Essentially, /liberty/lend is a underground bank network. Money comes in and proxy money comes out. The money is shipped in a special envelope that cannot show the money inside with a heat scanner.

It’s the perfect money exchange system for /librety/lads across the world.

There's an excellent 200ish page book on how the government will raid your home even in a foreign country if you do just that and how others have tried something similar. I'll post it tonight if I can find the pdf.

Here we go, this is the one I was thinking of.


I have never heard of a more ridiculous critique about using cryptocurrencies. It's code. It doesn't matter what it's mostly used for. Most drugs and criminal activities are exchanged with USD and yet nobody cares about that.

In fact when internet began being a thing, it was mostly used for porn and drugs. So people had a very similar perception that the people who use that new technology are criminals/weirdos.

Sending cash is illegal, slow and your money can be taken away at border control.

Crypto is the perfect money when people actually start using it and its value stabilizes.



The issue is Crypto grows too big and then proceeds to collapse in on itself due to people treating it like a stock market instead of using it as currency.



That's an issue that the market will solve given time. Since BTC and other crypto is used primarily as a store of value and investment tool rather than as a standard of exchange, there isn't a lot of market demand for it to be stable–while it has more than its share of problems, USD is still stable enough that people don't have any issue using it to clear short-term transactions. If and when USD, the euro, the yen, or some other major currency becomes less suitable as a currency due to instability or some other failing, there will be more market pressure on crypto speculators and arbitrageurs to provide a stable price, as people start using crypto as a currency and not just as a store of value.

is not the petrodolar thing a conspiracy theory?


USA have a government.



The Waco Siege is a conspiracy theory. Fast and Furious is a conspiracy theory. Cultural Marxism is a conspiracy theory. Seth Rich is a conspiracy theory. And muh Russia isn't a conspiracy theory but a sound and grounded investigation. If you haven't caught my drift yet, anything the left doesn't like can be labelled and dismissed a conspiracy theory. And while the question of whether or not US actively pursues the maintenance of the petrodollar in its foreign policy may be open to some interpretation, one cannot deny that the petrodollar has been very beneficial for USD monetary expansion, even if this state of affairs was reached entirely by accident.



Technically speaking any deed committed by a plurality of people is a conspiracy and anyone proposing such a deed was committed is proposing a conspiracy theory. I understand you're using the spooky government version of the term, as the poster you're replying to was, but at some point we need to take back language. We can't let evil people redefine English on us.
