Philosophically, I like the idea of anarchy but pragmatically speaking, I agree minarchy is probably more realistic.

It'd be interesting to hear e.g., David Friedman's take on what private/individual/voluntary-association-based defense against an invading army might look like under anarcho-capitalism, though. Seems like the kind of question that gets to the core of why states arise and to what degree they're more or less beneficial and to whom.

A constitutional republic like america once has been (before it got turned into today's democracy) seemed to work out really great.

It's simple game theory. Anarchy > state > gangs > anarchy. State is preferable to gangs, therefore we begrudgingly accept the state.

It's so hard to get this point across to leftists. "Isn't it terrible what betsy devoss isn't doing?" "no, the doed is illegal" "??? do you hate [protected class strawman]?"

Man, I really don't understand the hate for DeVos. The closest I can come is, "we're not used to these ideas, therefore they must be bad." Meanwhile, I've been saying some of the exact same things for years whenever people start griping about the quality of education (which is often).

I suppose there's also a healthy dose of Trump derangement syndrome by association.

Imagine a world where everyone is financially literate, financially responsible, and where all the government services are efficient and all the taxes are low.
