Come to sunny Somalia, where your vacation can't be ruined by socialism: they've been government free since the 1990s!
I was able to hunt down a great article showing that, while things suck in Somalia, they're a lot better now than they ever have been.
In the article, he points out that -- since 1991, when the "It's-not-really-anarchy-because-governments-do-still-exist-and-taxes-are-still-being-collected" began -- businesses ARE paying to have their products protected (i.e., voluntary police); Death rates have gone down 16%; GDP per capita has been increased by 300%.
He also points out that it's idiotic that people think "oh, it'll be grand when only ONE group of people are trying to steal all my money. Especially when that ONE group of people is the MOST VIOLENT group of people".
HE also points out that one reason these warlords likely exist is that Western Countries are trying to force a pro-western government in there.
HE also points out the foolish argument that "because Somalia is a country...". Every seems to think that just because Somalia once WAS a country, that it should be considered that way forever - why is it not that each Warlord's territory be considered a new country? And, if it DOES require one overarching government, then why has every other country (warlord) lived in relative peace (minus the US launching a new war every 5 years) with every other country (warlord)?
And, here's another paper outlining how Somalia has done quite better than it's other African countries:

Would a free market have prevented this from happening?I'm guessing the libertarian argument would be that the failings of state regulation was a contributing factor. Those failings stemming from the fact that the...
