Economic literature: papers , articles , software , chapters , books. Registered: Peter J. In the Franz Cuhel Memorial Lecture, I argue that the study of endogenous rule formation in economic life what I term the positive political economy of anarchism should be studied in-depth and that the economic analysis of the Austrian school of economics provides many of the key analytical insights necessary for such study. There isn't the slightest possibility that its in my view, horrendous ideas would be implemented, because they would quickly destroy any society that made this colossal error.
The idea of "free contract" between the potentate and his starving subject is a sick joke, perhaps worth some moments in an academic seminar exploring the consequences of in my view, absurd ideas, but nowhere else. The concept of anarchism requires, above all else, freedom from authority. To many other anarchists, the idea that individuals could freely sell their labor to another is oxymoronic; rather, they consider it to be a kind of wage slavery.

Anarchists like Chomsky would argue that compelling people to do society's degrading and unsatisfying work in order to avoid starvation isn't freedom, its just slavery with extra steps. The primary premise of anarcho-capitalism is that one's labor should be entirely one's own. Rothbard writes "The basic axiom of libertarian political theory holds that every man is a self owner, having absolute jurisdiction over his own body.
In effect, this means that no one else may justly invade, or aggress against, another's person. It follows then that each person justly owns whatever previously unowned resources he appropriates or 'mixes his labor with'. But this presupposes that everybody will be able to engage in labor in the first place. Anarcho-capitalists would argue that if you don't want to let the old starve to death or if you want to take care of your children while you're working, you could always give them your surplus resources—and if you can't or don't want to perhaps a private charity could take care of the vulnerable instead.
Maybe private charities could take care of orphans or elderly folks who have nobody else taking care of them. Of course, whether such a socially minded, private venture would exist or function as effectively or ineffectively as current government social systems is entirely unknowable.
Society without a State
This is perhaps one of the biggest flaws in anarcho-capitalism; it doesn't provide enough evidence to refute its biggest criticism: that it will abandon the vulnerable. Then again, some anarcho-capitalists would probably shrug and say, "It's too bad the elderly can't afford retirement homes, they should have worked harder.

The two concepts might seem contradictory, but anarcho-capitalists exist. Jonny White via Flickr. Seemingly diametrically opposed, some peopel call themselves anarcho-capitalists. Anarcho-capitalism argues that there ought to be no state whatsoever; the free market can sort everything out, and if left alone, will ensure everybody's liberty. The philosophy attracts considerable criticism, both from anarchists and people with more traditional politics.
This is so dyed in the anarchist wool that the 20th -century anarchist Emma Goldman once wrote: "The only demand that property recognizes is its own gluttonous appetite for greater wealth, because wealth means power; the power to subdue, to crush, to exploit, the power to enslave, to outrage, to degrade.
