Forum Post: You are not an anarchist if you want to use a state to change the world. State = violence, tyranny, evil, death and destruction

You are not an anarchist if you believe in using the initiation of force against peaceful people to accomplish your goals. Using men with guns to extract money or involuntary compliance from people is exactly why the world is in such a bad place. Initiating aggression is always immoral. In society-remembering that society is not the government, it is the people-we do not allow anyone to initiate aggression EXCEPT the state. We allow a huge moral exception for this parasitic and criminal organization. Just because men wear funny costumes, black dresses and act like they have a right to rule and dominate other human beings does not mean they actually do. If I do not have the right to go to my neighbors house and demand a portion of his income or use violence against him if he does something I do not like so long as he is not hurting my property, then no one else has that right either. It is impossible for an individual to delegate a right to a group that they did not have in the first place! If you don't have a right to steal and initiate force, you cannot delegate that right to a political party to do it for you.
No amount of voting makes the initiation of force moral. Just because 51% think we should hang jim for adultery or steal from rick to fund a new water fountain does not make it right. Is that the belief we want to embrace? That is acceptable to initiate force so long as you have enough people on your side? I hope we aspire to more lofty ambitions than tired and immoral democracy. Only through respect of the self ownership and dignity of the smallest minority (the individual) can we reach our full potential and leave behind a better world than we found.
It is foolish not to realize that someday someone else will have that power to initiate force, the true evolution is understanding the truth that no one should have the power to initiate force. There should be no state. Without a state there will be no corporations sine they will be unable to use this monopoly power to shutout their competition, the field wil truly be leveled when anyone can compete and the only barriers to entry are natural ones. Voluntary human association is moral and more efficient than immoral coercion and violence. End the state everywhere, set people free. Everything should be voluntary in an evolved society, if your initiating force and violating others you are the problem.
The evolution of humanity must come through peace, not taking over the immoral and illegitimate state and using its monopoly power to initiate force on our behalf. We are seeing this voluntary evolution occuring RIGHT NOW through inincredible technoligies like 3D printing, Bitcoin, Namecoin and blockchain based technologies. We are beginning to see the promise of these technologies;
Bitcoin blockchain technology will enable us to:
- Conduct voluntary transactions without a third party sticking a straw into it and stealing money(the state or corporations)
- Determine who owns what property with the need for a centralized authority
- Free us from central banker imposed slavery with the first decentralized distributed currency
- Create an alternative internet that cannot be taken down, censored or controlled (.bit)
- Innovate without permission
- Bring the power to get a loan, be your own bank, access financial instruments and create financial instruments to BILLIONS who are currently locked out of the financial system by corporations and governments
In addition to block chain technology, 3D printers make regulation and prohibition of goods (drugs, firearms, guns, patented items, etc) impossible and pointless. In places like detroit where the state has grown so parasitic that it destroyed the economy, freedom beginning to take hole as people refuse to pay taxes, voluntary services (like Detroit threat management - private security) are springing up to replace previously slave funded services and anarchists of all stripes are moving in to turn desolated lots into gardens and selling their products without government permission and without being stolen from by government goons. These new services do not point guns at peoples heads to earn their paycheck, they do so by serving their customers and earning the trust of the community. DTM has never killed a single person, compare that to the local police from anywhere. Because they have to earn their paycheck and cannot depend on just stealin it, they must provide people a good service and be responsive to market needs-unlike their statist equivalent who does not need to respond to the market since they get paid regardless of how many mentally retarded men they beat to death or dogs they shoot for no reason. People are asserting their right of self ownership and reclaiming their dignity as humans from the criminal gangs of the state.
Who will build the roads? People who want to make a profit by providing a service. Our technological advancement will not be held back by governments or corporations who seek to maintain their stranglehold on the markets, we may not even need roads! Who will put peaceful people in jail? No one because we will not tolerate the initiation of force nor the arbitrary creation of law by politicans. Our law will be natural law; don't hit, don't steal, don't kill, don't rape, don't commit fraud and don't initiate force. Who will protect us from invaders? We will along with market based security, we will not cower into statism for fear that we may be overtaken by another violent state, we will not shrink into fear and abandon liberty and our potential. But who will start the wars? No one because no one will have a claim to power any higher than another man and there will be no nation to attack.
The evolution is already happening peacefully. In the future states will become more and more irrelvant. They will be these big scary criminal organizations that swoop in every once in awhile to make examples of people (like they do with file sharing), but the vast majority of people will see their criminality and laugh at them as they fade into irrelevancy.
