Please enjoy my recent debate I conducted with John Cymerman, an old high school friend and fellow chess player. I am defending Anarcho-Capitalism and he is defending Direct Democracy or the necessity of “government” itself. Herein we discussed what is “government”, what is Democracy, where does power originate, is the lust for power part of human nature, the imperfections of checks and balances, the conflicting interests of the three branches of “government”, difference between democracy and dictatorship, what is an economy, how self-interest serves society, is Voluntaryism naïve, what is democide, the chain of obedience, what is sovereign immunity, what is the belief in the myth of authority, the modern day religion of Statheism, is taxation theft or voluntary, was chain slavery a function of “government” or private enterprise, is chain slavery an efficient business model and much more!
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
