Would you travel to another country illegally?
You mean by risking my life to do so…? Probably not under the current circumstances but I do not know what the future may hold in store for me. There may come a time when I need to flee somewhere else with my family. I only hope no one will try to stop me from protecting my family and attempt to shoot my while I am doing it.
In general, I reject the idea of asking permission of government to move. Government has no rights. Though, I would not trespass on someone else’s property either.
In times long forgotten travelers used to have much more freedom to move. In fact, property owners would not become so indignant when people attempted to cross their property lines. They might have stopped travelers and asked them their business as any prudent person might do but it was always assumed that “right-of-way” would be upheld under common law. After all, there were no notions of property easement until government came in and stole land for “public use” from property owners.
The article said he claimed He’d been having his house broken into and his property destroyed.
Also private ownership of property is only facilitated by a governmental authority. Otherwise it’s only yours until some bigger and strong takes it from you.
Ownership is a legal state, the concept is completely erroneous without an authority.
Let me save you some time and aggravation.
Don’t waste your time trying to apply logic with that guy. Somehow he got this absurd anarchist bent that there is no reasoning with. As much as I generally believe in a supremely limited government, there is only so much you can break it down until we descend back into tooth-and-claw cave dwellers. The notion that man would somehow be productive and peaceful if there were a complete lack of governmental structure is nothing but fantasy. [/quote]
There’s no evidence from any point in history of anarchy being productive. Usually, brief periods of anarchy come after the collapse of one government or another. Then, the vacuum of power is filled by a strong man or whoever else can suppress the criminals.
South Africa and Zimbabwe are in states of anarchy, more or less. You have a 90% chance of getting away with murder in SA. What a garden spot! How about Somalia? Lots of anarchy there with all of the Islamists, pirates, and warring clans vying for control. Any takers for a vacation to Somalia?
If there were ever ‘anarchy’ in the US, all of the ex-military guys would quickly establish their own areas of control, much like the retired soldiers living on the edge of the Roman empire as it collapsed established their own feudal states.
