Brad Spangler on anti-politics and links to his exposition on the differences between anarcho-capitalism and agorism:

I hope to have more in reply to it later, but David Gordon has a new
piece up attacking the anti-political perspective as part of the
Paulian effort to leave no potential voter un-hectored.

"An Open Letter To Libertarians on Ron Paul"
http://www.lewrockwell.com/gordon/gordon31.html

While I was working on a larger piece addressing that and the general
Rockwell et al tendency of late to muddy the waters while attacking
"left libertarians" [said tendency noted here:
http://www.bradspangler.com/blog/archives/866], I stopped and put
together a shorter post that I hope addresses well a certain aspect of
Gordon is saying.

That post:

"Distinguishing between anarcho-capitalism and agorism"
http://www.bradspangler.com/blog/archives/867

Rockwell and company could end up doing us a favor if they keep
lobbing softballs at us, but we have to be able to exploit that by
replying and replying well. Suggest riffing on the themes I touched on
above.

Someone was wondering if discussions like this were "allowed" .... I was thinking that this is about what I had in mind for our forum. :)
I also said I like all of Jack's posts.

A lesson in ecology, when you clear out the competing animals (politics,) different animals have a chance to thrive.

Maybe it's really a lesson in husbandry.  Seems like your a good husband Russell.

Sorry, I can't ever resist a pun.

Please don't ban puns Russell.  I wouldn't know what to do :)

If politics and antipolitics collide and annihalate that will be fine.  No more elections or demonstrations.  Just freedom.

Let’s define the term “politics.” It seems it can amount to no more or less than “a competition of ideas about government.” When you boil it down, “politics” amounts to
'Auntie's' ideas about how “the best government” ‘ought to be’/‘operate’ vs. how YOU think ‘it’ should operate vs. how Rush Blowhard thinks it should operate vs. how Dubya Bush,  John Skerry, Osama, etc. 6 billion others think “the best or just or perfect etc. government” ought to be!..It seems it certainly could be an interesting, healthy competition if it were done in a rational, honest way..

But 'politics' today is an obvious stinking fraud..dominated by the cho$en few 'viable Republicrat candidates' whose stinking 'ideas' have been deemed as no threat to the exi$ting, stinking Republicrat order!..  ;)
