Stay Tuned for A Little Anarchy   3 comments

When Becky Akers and I met to talk about her books — Abducting Arnold and Halestorm, we touched on subjects of political philosophy. Becky is an anarcho-capitalist, whom I stalked after hearing her on local talk radio.

It should not surprise regular readers of this blog that Alaskans tend to be enamored with the idea that government — especially the federal government — gets in the way more often than it helps us. I’ve always had anarchist flickerings in my soul. At the same time, I grew up in a state that is government heavy. Alaska is a deep scarlet state with a huge government apparatus. I don’t think I can imagine a future with No government, but I think I would like to try.

Thom Stark and I are having a wonderfully fun debate across the progressive-small government divide, but Becky and I are going to have a conversation in which I hope to show you what I find attractive about the anarchist philosophy and also answer some of my own questions to see if it’s a bridge too far or right up my alley.

So, hang on! Tuesday Coffee with Becky starts tomorrow.

  1. I love the premise of this. Two people discussing interesting, and perhaps challenging, stuff. My own personal perspective is I am suspicious of any labels, especially ones like “Anarcho-Capitlist” that almost seem contradictory. I just don’t think in terms of labels like that. Anyway, it would be interesting to hear this conversation.

    • I’m a label avoider too. Check out my statement in About Me for some thoughts on that subject.

      Come back tomorrow and in subsequent posts and hear what Becky and I have to say.

      If you want some interesting balance to Becky’s topic, also check out my conversation with Thom Stark — who is definitely not a philosophical ally with Becky.

      And feel free to join either conversation or post on any topic of the blog. I welcome reasoned and civil debate.

      • That all sounds wonderful and I’ll definitely keep an eye for the upcoming posts. Great conversation and debate is awesome and sometimes hard to discover online. Thanks for providing a forum for that. Good luck.
