Welcome to /liberty/, your board for the discussion of politics, society, news, and the human condition without authoritarianism (fascism, full-on communism, etc). The board's philosophy is simple - welcome all discussion from non-authoritarian viewpoints, light moderation, and most importantly of all fun.

We've seen SJWs, we've seen the far right, and we've seen the far left and we've said no, stop this madness - the moralizing authoritarians who seek to control society and shape it to their whims and test out their vague theories would enslave us just to feel that society was better. At /liberty/ we believe we would be best served by sticking to the path we've been on for so long, that of personal liberty.


See the image - if you make the cut, you'll be right at home on /liberty/. Even if you are an authoritarian (far left or far right), you're welcome to join us - just don't expect to be taken seriously.


1. Global Rules uber alles.

2. Spamming can result in a short ban. In the event of raids, discussion threads will be stickied to weather the storm.

3. Rules are lame, don't make me make more and don't whine for more moderation unless it is absolutely necessary.

4. This board has an actual topic and it's not fetish porn. Content that is clearly beyond the pale of the board's topic (fetish porn, clop, gore, etc) will be removed. If you need these things, they are a mere three clicks away; you can even get there one-handed.

Board Policy Vis-a-vis…

1. "Shitposting"

There is no such thing as shitposting. It's a vague and subjective concept that boils down to "irreverent posts or things I don't like," and therefore makes a bad yardstick for moderation. If you want discussion without fun, may I suggest another board?

Sorry but there isn't any other ideology that killed more parasites than communism. Stalin alone wiped out many useless parasites from USSR society.

But there's still many out there…and no, it's not just the jews. There's many, many more. Including you and the entire population of the USA

if a land lord in ancapistan owned land the same size of a country, would you pay rent for living in his property and to help pay for the mercenary defense contractors?

I'm not going to rent to people that have military weaponry. Perhaps a few if I assume they are trust worthy. Weapons will be confiscated by the police on entry.

Soldiers will obviously get a nice bonus after the war :)



>Every renter just ups and decides to steal my property because I collect rent despite every country ever having taxes and it not happening



early bitcoin miner



>im not going to rent to people with guns

Okay. I have no sympathy for people who voluntarily agree to that.


The problem isnt the taxes, it's the exhorbitantly high taxes and the behaving like a warlord. People dont give a shit about a little bit of rent. When the government gets out of hand people righteously chimp out. There are precedents for this, namely the American and French and Mexican I guess revolutions.

I don't understand why an entire nation is paying rent anyways. Most people want to outright own their land. No one's going to rent your land when they can buy it elsewhere. And if it's not for sale elsewhere they could probably rent it cheaper than what youre charging. So youre not making any money off your land; suddenly it becomes economical to lower your prices or make your land available for complete purchase. Youre really outlining the criteria for a shitty, awful country. I assume this is ancap planet where everyone can leave your "country" for a better one. If it's not ancap planet and you own the only ancap state, well how did you come to aquire it? Nobody's going to sell you all the land. People like having their own stuff. Plus with every acre you buy the price of all remaining acres goes up. It's just not feasible. This hypothetical scenario is stupid. I mean, I know you set out with the intention to bait but surely you could come up with a better strawman than "what if i bought all the land?" You couldn't. You just cant. Back to >>>/pol/ have fun worshipping a failed liberal art student.



> it's the exhorbitantly high taxes and the behaving like a warlord

If you don't like the tax rate fuck off to someone elses property

>Most people want to outright own their land.

Outright owning land is going to be incredibly expensive

>Youre really outlining the criteria for a shitty, awful country.

No, i'm outlining a blueprint for a wonderful society. Who the fuck wants to live in a gulag? I can't extract many taxes from a gulag vs a wealthy society.

Libertarianism is Conservatism but without religion or a strong underlying foundation.

Atheists don't believe in God, therefore no morals, ethics, values, sanctity of life, marriage, etc. But they could still believe in freedom. Hence Libertarianism.

>Conservative: I believe in freedom because ____

>Libertarian: I believe in freedom because freedom

Conservatives view freedom as a means to an end, whereas Libertarians view freedom as an end itself.



Libertarians view freedom as a means to an end, but it recognizes that your end is not necessarily my end and gives everyone the ability to choose their own end. I just want my wife and my land and my books. Take your wars and your ethnostates and whatever (((ideals))) you deem worth robbing me over and fuck right the hell off


>voluntary interaction infringes on liberty



Conservatives value whatever the system currently is.

If capitalism is a good thing, why is it universally hated in Eastern Europe? I am from Ukraine, a country where to the vast majority of people, capitalism is a synonym for poverty, homelessness, and war.

I personally don't know a single person who believes anything positive came out of the restoration of capitalism. I also don't know anyone who wouldn't want socialism back.

How do you reconcile this with your ideology? It's not just Ukraine, but almost every Eastern European country, with the exception of Poland. And it's not just 55%, or 60% who miss socialism. It's 80%, 70%, and other overwhelming majorities.

where everyone starves equally (except for the people that actually run the government)




Greedy Croats keep on invading Liberland to steal their shit. But Croatia only has an army of 7,000. So, 700 dug-in rednecks could give them a very hard time of it. Also Croatian government cares about EU membership and German government would tell them to fuck off for fighting against civilian militia. Also Serbia still hate their guts and would give guns to the rednecks.

Would anyone like to see an actual debate between Anarchist philosophers. Most of the debates I have seen between AnComs and AnCaps have been between "amateurs" to say the least. It seems like kind of a shame because there are really influential thinkers on both sides and it would be an interesting watch.

The topics could include the ethics of capitalism, tactics for achieving a stateless society, economic calculation problem, problems with democratic unions, etc.

I can think of a team made up of Hans Herman Hoppe, Jeffrey Tucker, and David Friedman vs Noam Chomsky, Slavoj Zizek, and one other influential left anarchist if leftypol wants to make a suggestion.You could also use more intermediate thinkers like Tom Woods or Lew Rockwell for the AnCap side with whoever the left wants to add.

For real fun you could have a celebrity match up with the likes of Alan Moore and Dan Harmon vs Glenn Jacobs and Penn Jillette or something. Thoughts?

Is this a historic ancap experiment?

File: f05aa8f95ca790a⋯.png (412.19 KB, 5000x5000, 1:1, f05.png)


Ancaps and Libertarians believe in the supreme power of the free market to make everything work out, but how can that happen when buying on credit breaks supply and demand?

When people can freely take out a loan at basically any time, they're basically just being enabled to buy things that they can't afford. These things are more likely than not to be luxury items like nice new cars or big houses, because people who can't afford basic necessities generally can't get approved for a credit card or loan. So when lots of people are getting loans to buy these luxury items, it skews the market toward expensive, high-end luxury items and away from basic necessities. This causes the price of those necessities to increase, which means that everyone in all of society has to pay an increased amount to support themselves.

Additionally, because these loans are almost always ill-advised (the relatively few people who shrewdly take maximum advantage of credit card bonus points and loan interest rates lower than investment return rates are effectively being subsidized by other people making poor choices), the entire industry is basically built to exploit market inefficiency without actually contributing anything. And on top of that, because fractional reserve lending causes inflation that's focused at first in specific markets before radiating out, it's a prime factor contributing to economic bubbles, an existential threat to the free market. Together, this means that the most effective method of lending is a pump-and-dump: create imaginary money by making a larger pie, use that money to buy physical assets (belonging to a separate pie that isn't increased by lending), and laugh at the filthy plebeians when the bubble pops and they're left with worthless paper and you have valuable land and products.

How do you propose to protect ancapistan from the specter of usury? Certainly, the lack of a central government to enforce property rights will help, since it will discourage people from making exorbitant and/or conspicuous purchases and presumably reduce the scale of businesses and making lending riskier, but there is no mechanism by which it's possible to place limits on the ability of banks to fuck everything up without so much as a vestigial state.

>That is pretty much the scenario pre-FDIC.

Fractional reserve banking existed for hundreds of years before the FDIC, and it was theft and fraud for that entire time, just as it continues to be today. The question (in part) is how it can be prevented in a free society since it's effectively defrauding future generations that don't yet exist to defend themselves from it. The other half of the question is how we can counteract the poor-to-rich wealth redistributing effect of lending without resorting to taxes.



It was not always fraud and theft, otherwise there would be no future depositors. Even in free societies, fraud can be deterred (i.e. DRAs, private courts).

>poor-to-rich wealth redistributing effect of lending

Can you clarify this?



>calls people idiots but is a disgusting degenerate that posts nigger porn, is a literal soy boy, and doesnt understand how money works.

consider suicide



>It was not always fraud and theft, otherwise there would be no future depositors.

There will still be future depositors, because those who don't understand how banks work will continue to throw their money at them without a second thought, and those who do will be convinced that they can keep the jig up for just a little while longer.

>Even in free societies, fraud can be deterred (i.e. DRAs, private courts).

And yet fractional reserve banking has continued to exist for hundreds of years. What is the magical component of a stateless society that prevents fractional reserve banks from existing?

>Can you clarify this?

See: >>76766.



>We have, but it hasn't been constantly bailing out banks for that entire time.

With infinite federal reserve money

>but that's plenty of time for two entire generations of bankers to make their fortunes defrauding the public

You ever met old people that keep all their money hidden somewhere? People used to have very shitty trust in banks. Its only now that they will be paid back in printed money that they trust the system.

>It pumps unbacked money into the economy

It does not pump unbacked money into the economy. It allocates future money and labor into the present economy.

>What we end up with is smaller houses on smaller plots, but more plots and more total land area dedicated to housing.

Shitty small houses where you have to rent for years instead of getting a loan and buying a luxurious small house.

> There's a practical lower bound for plot size, and once you go below that no one will want to live there.

Unless they are paid well, see SF.

> Put another way, the many benefit at the expense of the few

No everyone is fucked by living in a shittier house, and having to rent before they can buy that shitty house.

> lending is wealth redistribution, from the poor to the wealthy.

Not its wealth redistribution from the future to the present. A trade of labor now for labor then.

>Fractional reserve banking existed for hundreds of years before the FDIC

A a much smaller scale, with much higher interest rates, with many people not trusting banks.
