This political philosophy is a good philosophy that would work on a small Island or an extremely small country with a small enough population where everyone who lives there shares the same cultural values. The problem with Anarcho-capitalism is it could not possibly work in any large nation or anywhere that is extremely populated. With more people there is always more problems, conflicting beliefs, values, etc... The more people in a nation the more complex things are and simply trying to have a system where everything is privatized only one can imagine all the things that could go wrong when just looking at how things are in every large nation around the world now. This is just my own opinion about it, although I will admit I am no where close to being some scholar on this political philosophy.

I gotta agree with this sentiment. For small communities, that weren't real technologically advanced (very little required infrastructure), it might work, but, get beyond a certain population point, and/or a certain level of technology, and it all goes out the window. Too much 'stuff' that needs to be paid for, and maintained, that not every individual is going to have a vested interest in. Schools for those with no children.... Health care facilities for those that are healthy, etc.

To be free people need a system where the politicians, bosses, cops etc that's to say all the potential dictators and their strategic crime partners have nothing to win and everything to lose trampling their rights.

 

Nothing to win because the parties would have the same financing so the corrupt politicians who serve the rich bosses are not advantaged.

Nothing to win because the cumulation of powers, notably of the economical and political power would be forbidden.

Nothing to win because any politician, boss etc whose honesty is in jeopardy would be systematically suspended and only reintegrated when his/her innocence is proved.

Everything to lose because they would be systematically denunced by independent medias, because the cumulation of a company and of a media would be forbidden and because the state would not control any media through "subsidies".

Everything to lose because they would be automatically punished by an independent justice that would automatize the penalties depending on the facts and apply equitable penalties.

 

Anarcho-capitalism is nothing more than the privatized version of marxism-leninism.

historically speaking there have been two medium sized Proto-Anarcho-Capitalist societies Gaelic Ireland and Medieval Iceland with amazing success
