Anarchy and the Good Life


Anarchy and the Good Life
by Lee McCracken

A lot of ink has been spilled by writers of the libertarian and market anarchist persuasion about how exactly to get from here to there. That is, how do we move from our present, state-infested situation to one of freedom? Do we pursue political action and if so, through the Libertarian Party or one of the majors? If we favor a non-political solution (either for moral or practical reasons), what form should it take? Passive resistance, civil disobedience, tax-dodging, even violence? Rather than addressing this question directly, I’d like to focus on a tangentially related topic and see if it might shed some light on the strategic issues.
