Libertarianism is a bit different from Anarchism. There is a shared value of anti-authoritarianism. But there are differences. These points from a jokes page illustrate the difference a little:


What's the difference between Anarchists and Libertarians? • Libertarians are anarchists with money. • Anarchists believe property is theft. Libertarians believe everything is property. • Libertarians are bosses; anarchists work for them when they run out of other options. • Libertarians buy more guns, but anarchists use more ammo. • Libertarians ride in stretch limos; anarchists throw bricks through their windshields. • Libertarians go shopping; anarchists go shoplifting. • Libertarians go to the police after they've been mugged; anarchists get mugged by the police. • A libertarian wants to marry another libertarian, but only after sleeping with enough anarchists. • Anarchists ignore the IRS; Libertarians hire accountants and attorneys to fight them. • Libertarians think the government is trying steal the property they rightfully own; anarchists think the government is trying to defend property that nobody rightfully owns. • Libertarians are organized in a political party; anarchists aren't organized in anything. • Anarchists ignore elections; Libertarians run for office, vote and lose. • Libertarians think anarchists are naive and unrealistic; anarchists don't care what libertarians think.

Unfortunately since the moment we climbed out of the tree's and started roaming around on 2 feet there has been a percentage of mankind who have sort to exploit and manipulate others for their own personal advantage and control.

Nothing has changed.

Anarchy would only gave those more manipulative and violent greater opportunity to further their desires.
As a result laws and religious dogma would develop to control those under their control and thus the circle of government, religion and control would continue.

Very sad, but true none the less.

come now, to say anarchism is impractical and unobtainable is silly. I mean, people support socialism, communism, democracy, and "englightened self interest" capitalism, and yet none of these things are either practical or attainable. They are all ideals that we strive for, so we just get to pick which ideal is the one for us.

Anarchist are not Liberal you fool..

How does that even make sense. "I am a Liberal! I don't want ANY form of Government telling me what to do, taking care of people, defending people, screw law and order!! yaa!!!!"...

Anarchy is Ultra Conservative.

Not Social Conservatism which is the Republican Party, which is also Liberal in terms of Government (IE NEOCON half liberal, half conservative, also known as Fascist)

Should they be stopped?

No, they are just punk kids without a clue. When they have to go get a job I would bet they shave, dress up, and all around clean up quite as well as the rest of us. Party days don't last forever. For most anyways.

Bring back Native North American anarchy and tribal warfare. Bring back freedom and Shamanism. Bring back scalping.

True conservatism.

Right i'm a fool.

I'm a punk kid without a clue.

I am jobless.

Next time I am going to read political philosophy I will just consult with you instead, since you clearly understand this better then me.
