things have value because they're valued. The State can create things that have more value than the resources it seized.
The problem is that the thing is pretty random and also coercitive.
That said, I should have been more precise, because I didn't mean in that case that the State can create value, I meant that things that the State creates can have value.
For example a park that can be enjoyed by everyone has value and can be well-manteined. Of course it's created with seized resources, but it's not such as big a tragedy as we make it out to be.
Since people want the State, ancaps should keep study and spread ancap shit, but also help the State allocate coerced resources in a way that benefits society.
We can be autistic all we want, but the truth is that if the State spends money for a park, it's better than if it spends the money for a million-dollar consultancy on child transgenderism.
Yes, we can't know for sure which of the two is better since they'll be payed with stolen resources, but in the real world we know, and we should stop being such little shit always closed in our world that goes nowhere.
This is very important because the fact that libertarians/ancaps don't take part in politics, mean that people who don't give a shit about freedom will get more and more power, and those who give a shit won't take part in politics because there is no prize or support from ancaps/libertarians.
I mean, even Ron Paul was attacked by certain libertarians/ancaps because he wasn't "pure enough". At that point, if that's how people who understand liberty want to act, fuck them and fuck we all, we deserve to suffer.
