    Can Anarchist or NOTA (none of the above) be added or is it already full?

    It should be an easy enough change to implement, but given other more badly needed fixes and enhancements, you could have a long wait.

    Anarchist would be classified as 'very liberal.'

    WRONG! Only anarcho-communists and possibly syndicates would fit that catagory.

    Ask pine, or google the Greek root of the word.
    I'm an anarcho-capitalist the only type of "anarchist" that is true to the title.

    Cognito, don't worry about the time, it would just be nice.

    Maybe something based off of the moral matrix system?

    An anarcho-capitalist means that you recognise the system of free economy and money as drive for human activity. But you still want to abolish the organise state, laws atc. Which leads to a negative sort of interpretation of anarchy, because here we are talking about the strongest's survival. I am not sure a anarcho-capitalist is true to the title.

    The purest form of anarchy denies every law, beacuse theoretically everyone knows how to behave, their obligations, so a mechanism of enforcement (law, punishment, goverment) is not needed. In this case violence simply doesn't exist: in fact it is considert bourgeois.

    Anarchy simply means: no-power(authority,rule,order, pick one), and it is a kind of positive utopia. But over the years there have been many interpretations of it.

    In true anarchy, even family structure is to be abolished. No man or woman can be it's head. It is an impossible system of government, even down to the most base levels.

    It's not survival of the strongest, it self responsibility for all aspects of one's life. Including defense of it. AnCaps also believe that certain government "services" (such as common and personal defense)would be desired by some, however a more efficient system would be through private contractors hired voluntarily on the free market. I'm not a person who would do this since I feel I can protect myself, and my community with those community members, however I believe in the theory for others.

    This concept (of no laws) is fairly hard for some to understand. However anyone who has ever lived in a small town (still possible in a large town with today's methods of communication) understands the power of shunning. Which could (should) be the enforcement of (non-lethal- self-defense situations) For example, my town is home of 900 (3000 in the whole county) and when a new deputy pulled over the only tow-truck driver (a friend of mine) in town for a broken tail light (a victimless crime law) they found out that they no long had anyone to tow vehicles for the city/county and the ticket disappeared.

    I've always heard it translated as No Ruler....however it's very hard to argue this with someone who lives the root tongue.

    This is not recognized as valid by AnCaps. The child once able to understand his situation has every right to leave the family/home at any time with no legal ramifications. However by staying he/she is entering into a contract to be ruled. I'm raising both my children as AnCaps however when there is a conflict I just point out that I'm a tyrant whom they've voluntarily chose to rule them. I tell them they can cancel this contract at any time they want and go live with their friends/other relatives/ or even on their own.

    No, it referrs to the entire system, not just the lack of a Ruler. It is a community thing, in an ideal form. It's beautiful, and impossible in my opinion.

    As for anarcho-capitalists I guess you've given it more thought than me. Still it's not pure anarchy. Poor deputy, hehe.

    Nice topic though. I've never met an anarcho-capitalist before!:)

    Thanks, for your expertise in the Greek. I've never met a woman by the name of pinelopi, only a couple of Penelopes.

    :rolleyes: Yes, in english it is written Penelope... long and short vowels, that sort of thing... but I made the difference so that you'll meet the only Pinelopi you'll ever know:D

    I feel very special, and not in the short-bus kind of way this time. I also feel this thread's end, in this area coming. Is there a political ideology thread / section already established?

    This anarchist realizes he has voluntarily entered into a contract to follow the forum rules and is trying the best he can after the embarrassing start.
