These Cages Are Only For Beasts (The DRO debate continues…)
After my first article ‘The Stateless Society’ (www.lewrockwell.com/orig6/molyneux1.html) was published, I was asked to explain how a society without government would deal with violent crime. Lew was kind enough to publish my article on ‘Caging the Beasts’ (www.lewrockwell.com/orig6/molyneux2.html) which provoked quite a flurry of positive and negative (though never unkind!) responses and requests for clarifications, […]

Caging the Devils: The Stateless Society and Violent Crime
After Lew Rockwell was kind enough to publish The Stateless Society (http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig6/molyneux1.html), I received many emails asking the same question: how can violent criminals be dealt with in the absence of a centralized government? This is a challenging question, which can be answered in three parts. The first is to examine how such criminals are […]

Disproving the State: Four Arguments Against Government
Two objections constantly recur whenever the subject of dissolving the State arises. The first is that a free society is only possible if people are perfectly good or rational. In other words, citizens need a centralized State because there are evil people in the world. The first and most obvious problem with this position is […]

Learning the Lessons of WWII
So now that it’s the 60th anniversary of the Second World War, it’s time for what you might consider a truly shocking argument. We are constantly told that WWII was fought against tyranny, in order to secure our own freedom. However, like almost all assertions that come from the State, it is put forward without […]

New Orleans
So New Orleans is underwater, and hundreds are dead, and everyone is wringing their hands about how everything should have been handled better... Really, people, it’s time to wake up to reality. The government will never handle anything better, since it has no interest in doing so. What will the results be of this latest […]

A war to be proud of..?
(a response to Christopher Hitchens's artcle - http://www.canada.com/national/nationalpost/news/issuesideas/story.html?id=88b9506a-c155-4dd3-829b-bd8b43a936b2) The reality of war is so often obscured by abstractions. Let us take a closer look at Mr. Hitchens’s obfuscating language and get to the meat of the matter. War is organized murder, pure and simple, just as dictatorship is. Mr. Hitchens can proclaim that the murder […]

A brief history of tomorrow…
How did we get to where are today? How did we get to economic stagnation, the slow strangulation of liberties? How did we get to where we will be tomorrow, with economic collapse and the war of words of all against all? Here is a very rapid tour through the destruction of rationality. We start […]

A moral journey...
I am always striving to follow the dictates of reason, and not falter from the consequences of logical premises. The path of pure reason has been a challenging, grueling, startling and joyous adventure, since it turns out that just about everything I have ever been taught – or imbibed through modern culture – is pure […]

Ahh, the media...
So I read an enjoyable – but terribly predictable – book this weekend called ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’, about how the media ‘dropped the ball’ on Iraq. Naturally, the writer was shocked and appalled, and hinted at dark conspiracies regarding the FCC, and its impending liberalization of the media marketplace. The networks were expecting to […]
