If someone was running a private security company in Ancapistan I wonder if they would be tempted to offer a deluxe package which costs ten times as much and offers immunity to minor crimes, or a platinum package which costs even more and shields you from murder investigations.
Would you want to buy security from a company that would let some members of Argumate’s Hypothetical Security Firm not be prosecuted for murdering you?
Probably not, in which case you would have to buy from me! 🙂
It’s kind of surreal to watch libertarians argue, and forget that some people don’t have money. Or do you just think that victims of crime don’t matter unless they are rich?
It’s kind of surreal to watch statists argue, and forget that some victims are black. Or do you just think murder doesn’t count if the perpetrator is a police officer?
^-Oh look it’s almost as if super uncharitable readings are a thing.
Yes of course there are people who are poor. The AnCap position isn’t “fuck the unprivileged,” it is “Maybe if we removed the biggest, most privileged violator of rights, that is, the state, people without privilege would maybe have fewer of their rights violated all the time.
Reminder from history:
In October of 1966, in Oakland California, Huey Newton and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. The Panthers practiced militant self-defense of minority communities against the U.S. government
Ah yes, I can see that poor people and minorities can expect to be totally fucked over immediately if we abolish the state because they definitely didn’t give us some of the greatest examples of what to do if you have no state or, even worse, continually get fucked over by the state.
