Do you want Anarchists to have Nuclear Weapons?

This is from another thread, but the topic is now so off-the-hook that it deserves it's own thread, and you deserve the opportunity to vote on this issue.

I'm not sure if Anarchists go too far, or if they don't go far enough. You decide, and your vote can get the force of the government to Control The Anarchists

The following thread suggests Anarchist Unicyclists Want Nuclear Weapons

(Remember, an anarchist assassinated U.S. President McKinley in Buffalo, New York.)

Now, your question seems to present that anarchy and societal controls are exclusive of each other, but all societies have societal controls, even an anarchist society. You don't need a government (ie. a territorial authoritarian monopoly) to have law and order.

And, yes, I should be able to own a nuclear weapon, either in full, or as being a member of a protection service provider.

I'm not an anarchist but I'd gladly have my own "big boy".

Got to warn you that my wife mistook the computer with the toaster a few times, though.

And anarchist pedestrians want writing implements.

Remember, a document freed US of its colonial rulers in Great Britain.

I hope your wife does not mistake your own "big boy" with your own "little boy."

I don't think anyone has had a successful anarchy except for Ron Paul's wild childhood play dates!

That is a much better outcome than allowing criminal protection rackets, like the United States, from having them. Are you really surprised by this obviously scientific poll?

Gilby: You're the only self identifying anarchist I've met that hopes to achieve an anarchist society through a politician elected to represent others.

I've always considered the anarchist tradition to be about rather more than simply an absence of government. Which anarchist writers interest you?

Harper, I actually do have a bunker in the garden. It has a chandelier and a marble fire place in it and some lovely plants on the roof.

While I think there are better options than criminal protection rackets, you may want to consider switching providers. The mafia is much cheaper and provides better services. Here are the top 10 reasons the mafia is better than the state:

My support for Ron Paul is simply because achieving an advanced anarchist society in my lifetime is probably not likely. He is also likely an anarchist himself.

To achieve an anarchist society, you need the people in that society to have the knowledge of what anarchy really is, as well as knowing the problems that is caused by the existence of the state. Ron Paul is educating the masses and bringing many people to look deeper into what libertarianism and anarchy is.So by supporting Ron Paul, I am helping to bring that message to many more people than I could otherwise do. And if he were to become the head of the monster, that can only be a good things to the anarcho-capitalist cause.

Anything about anarcho-capitalism or the austrian school of economics is good. Here is a good starting point: http://www.mises.org
