#unitetheright Sometimes ancaps are thrown in with the cucks for not taking a violent stand against antifa. Afterall, the physical remover’s argument goes, antifa are already perpetuating aggressive violence so violence against them is self-defense. This principle can be extended to any statist, since government by nature is an aggressive use of force. Libertarian fascist such as Cantwell and T loosely cite Hans Hermann Hoppe who said that certain members of society needed to be physically removed in order to move towards a libertarian order, so to speak. This argument has appeal of the face of it - taxes are theft, commies support taxes, taking from thieves isn’t stealing, the body is property, so we [can justifiably] take their lives. But at the end of the day this is a distorted view of the NAP. The self-defense under the NAP applies to those situations in which one’s own person or a person one was explicitly tasked with defending, is put at immediate and bodily risk. Even in the case of vigilante justice (suppose batman draws a batarang on who he ascertains is a would-be robber in the act of taking a woman’s purse), we must still accept that this is a violation of the NAP. What penalties would such a culprit suffer? Perhaps none, at the end of the day, if his actions were deemed to be both reasonable and justifiable by all parties involved. Perhaps he would even be rewarded by the potential victim or the community at large- but prima facie the NAP has been violated or else leaving room for unpunishable actions in the name of goodwill. Going back to the example at hand, what if the women was not actually being robbed but instead flirting with her male friend in a way that was interpreted as distress. Perhaps her lover would have legal standing against Batman - such is the price of a course of duty that involved dispensing violence on unknown foes. Considering this, the forced deportation - or murder - of anyone that supports, is part of, or influences government is a far stretch for our humble principle. The ancap that sees himself as a would be lawmaker - a potential arbitrator in a future free from the state - must be staunchy and cold when it comes to his applications in order to avoid the arbitrary nature of law we see in society today.So, onto my main argument, if you view antifa with disgust, flying them out of the country, beating them with a stick, or physically removing them into the pavement all pale in comparison to libertarian commentary that would offer real and justifiable solutions to the issues at hand.For instance, what if Virginia did not have public parks. What if the state made no claim that there is some sacred ground to which the services of defense and justice will be made available to all who pass by? The influx of participants and observers in Charlottesville's rally demonstrated handily that at least the entity entrusted with such defense, the police, we unable to uphold such a promise. I make no claim that a libertarian society could be made with such guarantees, I would just offer that nobody would be foolish enough to make them. This is because by offering safety to all whom enter your property, and by taking no actions which preclude certain safety threats from said environment, you have exposed yourself to a legal liability that does not currently exist for public agents and property they steward. Additionally, [erecting], renaming, and removing a statue from a park which was paid for by everyone’s money will ignite tempers at every turn. Whereas private parks that serve only their paying customers will not be responsible for the feelings of the uninvolved and would be able to better suit their customers’ demands.Indeed auctioning off the public parks and the city streets - anywhere where this violence is unmediated - we would curb future disruptions to the message boards - where fighting words and provocative slurs can be kept from their real world consequences. The longer the government keeps up the illusion that it can keep its house of cards in order, the harder the crash into chaos will be when its citizens have exhausted their faith. Government agents must admit now: we cannot promise you safety. That is what the Mayor of Charlottesville essentially meant today when tweeted out “go home.”In a sentence, chaos comes from those that spread it. There is no greater threat to a peaceful coexistence on this planet than governments. It’s a funny day when you realize anarchy is the best solution for chaos.
