"Anarchy, like communism, fails in practice"

"Conservatives" like to pull some statement of this sort out of somewhere dark and musty: "Anarchy, like communism, sounds good on paper but fails in practice."


I've never seen anarchy fail when it is followed. Not once. Of course, it's not a political system, and those who try to make it one will see it fail every time. It's like trying to use the family SUV to get to Mars. You're doing it wrong!

That's also why communism always fails when imposed as a political system. It might work OK as long as you don't try to make a government out of it-- keep it 100% voluntary and let anyone opt out at any time for any reason without punishing them. But once politics enters the picture, it's going to be bad, just like when politics is mixed into medicine/science or anything else-- nothing is left but politics. 

And why the pathetic attempt to always tie anarchy and political communism together? Might it be due to government school indoctrination? I'm sure it is.


Thank you for helping support


  1. When confronted with a "freedom Republican" I like to point out there are those who will aggress against otherwise peaceful people and there are those who won't. If you violate an otherwise peaceful person, you can't possibly be "for freedom" etc.

    In that circumstance there is no fundamental difference between a Republican and a Democrat.

    The ensuing meltdown is just about as nonsensical as if I were engaging a Democrat, except I might not be called a racist. Lol.

    1. What I tell "conservatives" is usually something like this: I'll happily stand right beside conservatives until they reach the point where they say "No more liberty for me, please. That's enough!" Then, as long as they don't try to stop me from going further, we can part as friends at that point. I'd tell "liberals" the same in the same circumstances.
