My comment on a Mises blog thread:
Geoih, “I don’t consider myself an anachist because I think the idea is utopian and only attainable under the extreme conditions that all utopian ideals require.”
As I explain in What It Means to be an Anarcho-Capitalist, to be an anarchist simply means you oppose aggression, and you realize the state necessarily commits aggression. If you are not an anarchist, it means you either condone aggression, or think the state does not necessarily commit aggression. As you say you are not an anarchist, can you please tell us which one describes you? Are you in favor of aggression (like socialists and criminals are)? Or, do you think the state does not commit aggression (like children brainwashed by government schools think)?
