My tongue-in-cheek reply to a mutualist on Roderick Long’s blog, who had written “I’ve read lots of Mises Institute articles since our last meeting, and apparently the ‘dark satanic mills’ were actually cool, the misery of industrial England was due to population explosion not capitalism ….”. My comment:
I can picture a future world with little mutualist enclaves that anarcho-capitalists visit from time to time on vacation as tourist attractions, sort of like how I used to drive visitors, when I lived in Philly, out to Lancaster to see the Amish. But I would love to see the competition. I can picture a capitalist on a podium debating a mutualist, shouting at the top of his lungs, while banging his shoe on the table, “WE WILL BURY YOU!! WE WILL BURY YOU!!,” as a murmer of dismay ripples across the libertarian hemp-shirt wearing organic pot farmers in the audience.
