Anarchy In One Lesson
Here is the practical case for anarchy in a nutshell (well, most people think anarchists are nuts, don’t they?):
“The use of aggression in a particular situation will, on average, make matters worse, and it is not possible to know in advance when the general probability doesn’t apply nor to create institutions that will limit their use of aggression to when the general probability doesn’t apply, so a policy of completely rejecting the use of aggression or institutions of aggression is the optimal strategy in the real world.”
The rest is elaboration and commentary. For those who can’t wait for the next installment, I suggest you begin with Friedrich Hayek’s 1945 essay, The Use of Knowledge in Society, available at the excellent Library of Economics and Liberty here.
