Introducing Episode Eleven – Anarcho-Capitalism

This week we will try to discuss anarcho-capitalism. While we agree that ancaps are not anarchists in the sense that we use the word we don’t think that means they’re entirely without consideration. Why do people who argue for the non-aggression principle want to associate with the rabble who are most definitely aggressive (ie anarchists)? “private property anarchism” versus an anarchism of the abolition of property, but what does that mean pre-ATR. But most importantly for our conversation is that this phenomenon mostly seems to exist in the US alone. What is it in US history and intellectual history that makes this obsession with property such a flash point? What is it about rights and principles that attracts anyone to this position or is this just another meme fight for the internet?
