Rothbardianism? Build a Model. Go Ahead, Think It Thru.

ROTHBARDIANISM? BUILD A MODEL. GO AHEAD. THINK IT THRU.

Build a model. Go ahead. Try it. You have an opinion. Prove that you’re not a fucking idiot.

What will occur if you could manage to put 1000 rothbadians in a small city on a trade route, tomorrow, what would happen? model it out.

1) it’s easy to find 1000 people to claim they are rothbardians.
2) it’s IMPOSSIBLE to find 1000 people who DEMONSTRATE they are rothbardians.
3) but lets assume for a minute that you can, by luck, get given some land along, say, the new silk road. And you want to set up a rothbardian society. How will you do that?

Here is how your conversation will start: “if some rich person (please mommy or daddy), or some nation (please king, or government) will fund (pay me to play around) a libertarian order (a place where I can keep my meagre earnings outside of a major market) I will (I fantasize) move there (away from all the creature comforts of an empire and a mixed economy) to a place only other losers like me will go to, and feel good until we fail and blame it on other people who don’t come for not having our fortitude (subsidy).

So, why do people come? What will they do? Why will they choose it over the alternatives? how will you create private defense, private, courts, private property, and how will your courts determine what private property, and what contract terms, they will rule in disputes over, and what not?

How will you prevent a nearby city, state, or empire from boycotting you via trade barriers? how will you stop organized crime? How will you stop an influx of people who prey upon nearby cities, states, empires by violence, fraud, conversion, immigration, or fiancialization, or some other scheme?

Why will WOMEN want to move there? or live there?

If you can’t get 100 libertarianis to agree to the scope of non aggression, or the definition of private property, despite 50 years of trying, how will you get them to take real life and property and commercial risks together?

In other words, how can you OPERATIONALIZE rothbardianism? How can you bring it into existence in the real world instead of the fantasy world of silly teenagers and immature young males?

I mean, if you can’t operationalize your ideas, you (anyone) is just saying that youre stupid ignorant and fantasizing over hot girs on porn sites, right? I mean what’s the difference between envisioning yourself with some hot chick, envisioning yourself as some athlete, envisioning yourself as some warrior, envisioning yourself as economicallly successful, envisioning yourself as a leader of men, envisioning yourself as a politician, a king, a despot?

I mean, if you can’t OPERATIONALIZE some objective and demonstrate that it’s at least POSSIBLE then you’re just masturbating to political porn the way young men masturbate to car porn, gun porn, chick porn. RIght?

“I’m a libertarian” is, like “I’m a Marxist” just signaling that you masturbate to political porn unless you can state some strategy for operationally constructing what it is that you desire.

I’m pretty smart and I CANNOT OPERATIONALLY CONSTRUCT A LIBERTARIAN ORDER. I CANNOT locate a candidate geographically, discover any incentives that would produce membership, discover sufficient means of organization to produce the minimum commons (rule of law, defense) discover a means of constructing sufficient comparative advantage that it is possible to attract and maintain population (particularly women). Or discover a means of preventing such a territory from being populated by raiders of nearby or remote markets who then seize power until the external markets prey upon them.

I can’t do it. Tell me how it can be done. Show me people will do so. Show me rational incentives to do so. And the answer is, that you can’t. All yo ucan do is say “i would prefer to wok on the borderland where I exchange limited regulation and taxation for much lower standard of living and much higher opportunity costs – so high that I can only survive by parasitic remote subsistence on remote markets. Why? subsistence farming by an individual is fucking hard and libertarians aren’t exactly the hardest working folk you know.

ROTHBARDIANISM IS NOTHING MORE JEWISH SEPARATIST PARASITISM sold to young ignorant men who have a touch of intelligence, but are of little associative, reproductive, commercial, military, and strategic value, precisely because there is something WRONG (undesirable) about them.

it’s just that this parasitic argument, like marxism before it and christianty before it promises the impossible to people not smart enough to falsify that vast overloading and framing that the propaganda is constructed from.

It sucks to admit you were played. That you’re not that smart. But libertarianism played a pretty good sized group of people. Not enough to make a political movement. But enough to make a cult for misfit boys.

Grow the fuck up.

Men fight. They kill. They destroy. They take. They rule. They profit from their rule. They decrease the cost of profiting from their rule. They profit more so.

If’ you’re a free riding effeminate loser unwilling to fight, kill, destroy, take, rule, profit from taht rule, and build a civilization that constantly decreases the cost of profiting from that rule then you are just a fucking whinny little bitch.

Lift. Run. Explosively Sprint. Read about war. get a weapon. And when the time comes be the first guy to sprint to an opportunity to fight, kill, destroy, take, and rule.

Otherwise youre just a child. Not a man.

Thus Endeth The Lesson.

  1. “I’m pretty smart and I CANNOT OPERATIONALLY CONSTRUCT A LIBERTARIAN ORDER.”

    Do you recall reading “I, Pencil”? No one person creates the order or knows how to, it emerges from the coordinated actions of many different people serving many different interests.

    “What will occur if you could manage to put 1000 rothbadians in a small city on a trade route, tomorrow, what would happen? model it out.”

    I mean, same thing that can/will happen to Liberland if they have 1000 people there for a minarchy. They may be able to survive unless attacked; but that’s also true of smaller countries in general. So an anarcho-capitalist settlement might require a lot more people and coordinated efforts. “Big government” may be a bad thing, but since it exists, to defend against it requires a medium-sized effort that can leverage its strengths. Or it takes luck that a small operation won’t be tampered with.

    In short, anarcho-capitalism is still in a theoretical phase, but its failings to become reality so far aren’t an argument it isn’t ultimately workable

    1. I hamburger (where you do know how to construct the product but can’t because of seasonality, perishability, and work required), I Pencil (where no one person knows, in toto, how to construct the product), and the Fable of the Bees (capital accumulation as risk abatement), all teach us particular lessons about the seen and unseen.

      However, in the case of I Pencil, we learn of the distributed knowledge, but we do not learn of the method by which to construct a polity that permits it, and the market that facilitates it.

      So if you hold a (false) Rousseauian opinion of man, where markets evolve naturally without active and expensive suppression of crime, fraud, free-riding/privatization-of-commons/socialization-of-losses-and-costs, conspiracy and corruption, conversion/disinformation/propagandism, immigration/invasion/conquest.

      So it’s impossible to produce sufficient incentives to form a voluntary polity under rothbardian ethics. He merely parrots the low trust ethics of teh low trust levant, as a means of preserving all possible means of parasitism, while at the same time prohibiting violence.

      This makes it impossible to form a polity because it CREATES demand for the state.
