Best not come to the UK

No, I'm an anarchist. I use the Constitution to make solid grounds that our government needs to restrict itself, but ultimately I would prefer a world without government -- a totally free-market.
Republicans sit around blessing the free-market, but they don't truly feel that way, otherwise they would be anarchists.
Although I suppose that anarchy is a form of libertarianism - so both are correct.
I had taken you for a extremely limited Govt Libertarian.
And I agree that is a dispicable move by the Brits.
Actually quite funny and sad... you can be a fanatical muslim screaming death to britain and screeching about Islamic domination of the west and flying the black flag of Islam over Downing street... but don't be an anarchist.
No you can't.
But you can be a none fanatical Muslim and locked up in Gitmo!
What a despicable country.
Edit: Notice how the government argues FOR the illegality of anarchy. "It's anti-what-we-are, thus it needs to be abolished".
"Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy. Any information relating to anarchists should be reported to your local police."
It's argument is NOT "Anarchists do property damage, and they carry out acts of violence".... Their argument is "Anarchy is anti-state, and thus should be illegal".
I could easily rephrase that argument: Because government is the negation of liberty (taxes, laws, and regulations are all the negation of liberty), their argument is LITERALLY "Anarchy is freedom, and thus it needs to be stamped out because we're tyrants". ... I could say that, but it would convince no one.
Anyway, this should REALLY raise some red-flags over there. Their argument is literally "If it goes against what we claim to be, then it can get you into REAL trouble".
PS: I think we all saw this coming, and we all know where it is going to end. Witches => communist => terrorist => anarchist.
Anyway, thanks for the post, I hadn't seen it.
Of course, Britain's government actually announces that it's suspicious of Anarchists... ours is probably just wiretapping us and sending people to our meetings.
I constantly remind my friends and family "Just remember, because I'm a self-proclaimed anarchist some federal agent is probably listening to our phone call... So if you're doing something illegal, don't tell me"
The concept of the bomb wielding anarchist has been with us a long time, since the 1890s I think.
In terms of destruction to our economy and society, speculative bankers have been more damaging - so will the London police put out a general warning to be on the alert for risk taking bankers?
And are fascists on the list?- because they do set off bombs and hurt people and damage property.
Speculation isn't evil. It evens out booms and busts on a daily basis.
The problem with banking isn't speculation, it's the fact that they are in control of artificially increasing money. They are then the first people to be allowed to spend the money.
Imagine that! You get to make money out of thin air, then spend it... ... AND NO ONE CAN THROW YOU IN JAIL BECAUSE IT'S LEGAL!!!
If I weren't so dedicated to liberty, I'd start schmoozing with Bernanke!

If there is no progress in changing the direction of our economic unbalance and the opportunity that has been a springboard into upward mobility, can we expect more social unrest? The US in the past has been a success story in providing opportunity and freedom to many different races and creeds but...

Hey Even, Mises said big business was not evil. To be fair, he did not live to see the TBTF banks, but I am waiting for his libertarian followers duped by this stuff to say the TBTF banks ARE evil. Say it Evan!Here is my post to your off the wall review of my ebook on Amazon. It will show that your...

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 regulators were in bed (figuratively and literally) with those regulated. Whereas...
