VOCAPs

I just wanted to share this stupidity.

He starts out by saying that voting is a violation of NAP (non aggression principle) and later goes on to complain that ANCAPs have a bad reputation because of the "anarco" part in their name.

For the first part:

What is violent about voting? By participating in democracy you are given a chance to affect the government, the policies and laws through proxy. Sure, it's not usually direct democracy but in countries it would be incredibly slow, massive and incompetent way to make major decisions and electing politicians to represent the will of the people is still letting the people voluntarily choose how the country is run.

How are ANCAPS or VOCAPS supposed to do anything with other people if mutual agreement is a violation of the NAP?


As for the "anarchist" bit... They are still trying to dismantle the state as much as possible. Aside from realizing that he's doomed to fail all he did was change the name. He isn't actually changing anything in the ANCAP philosophy.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

People don't like ANCAPs because of the "anarchist" bit?  Colour me fucking shocked, Batman.  Its almost like anarchism is complete bullshit, betraying a person's complete, fundamental misunderstanding of the purpose of having an effective governing body.

Though, I agree that anarchists shouldn't vote.  After all, voting is tacit support of government, and government isn't the solution to (some) problems, government is the problem and now you have cholera.

How the hell is it remotely possible for all social interactions to be voluntary?  I'm walking down the road, turn the corner and bump into another guy.  Boom social interaction that neither of us chose to have.

Ancaps make lolbertarians look rational and reasonable by comparison. I'm not surprised they don't understand the nature of social interaction.

Again, I thought it was the alt-right that mostly did that. It seems unlikely that anarchists would be Pinochet fans.

Then again, there are ancoms who like Stalin and Mao, so maybe you're right.
