Should all libertarians just say fuck off to the system and go live on their own? Wouldn't it be the shit?
I’m not sure all libertarians feel that way, some are very convinced it is still possible to “work within the system.” I, however, do not feel that way. My libertarian leanings led me to anarchist philosophies and, for now, this is where I have felt most comfortable. In time I imagine my outlook on life will change, but I don’t see a dramatic shift in favor of political democracy or otherwise elected despots.
no lets stick around and complain about it on the internets!
So people in authority are completely out of touch with reality. What does that mean for us? The good news is voluntary self-organization, like horizontal networks, is running circles around the old government and corporate hierarchies and eating them alive, like piranha skeletonizing a cow. Over twenty years ago John Gilmore said “The Net treats censorship as damage and routes around it.” Self-organized networks and other voluntary associations, similarly, treat the intrusions of irrational authority as damage and route around them. We’re building a world in which the irrational interference of those in authority is becoming less and less relevant to our lives and their stupid commands are becoming unenforceable. Maybe you’d like to join us?
