It’s self-evident to anarchists that taxation is theft. I’m an anarchist so I accept this statement as self-evident. This does require more explanation to the non-anarchist. Libertarian anarchists such as myself see no special status for the State – “government,” in more common language – that gives human beings acting within or on behalf of […]

A person close to me who’s known me for decades recently criticized me for being critical of the slogan “We Believe Survivors!” and for backing off on my intitial support for Christine Blasey Ford’s believability. I was charged with attacking the women’s movement in general. I agree with my critic that by unintended consequence my […]

From Facebook: A Discussion of Voting from an Antistatist Perspective I posted on Facebook: Zachary Fiscke responded to my post: Gross. (The voting, not the guns or language). I wrote back: One of the nice things about being an anarchist is the lack of rules. Vote, Boycott the Ballot — it’s a strategic debate and […]

As a libertarian, as an anarchist, as an Agorist I am for free movement and the right to work of foreigners crossing national borders. This is not a recent position of mine. It’s represented in an article I wrote in the early 1970’s called “The Aliens Are Among Us” published in Murray Rothbard’s magazine The […]

The FBI and Christine Blasey Ford

Google Translation: “Let justice be done though the heavens fall.” Does anybody actually care about the truth of Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that as a teenager President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her? Democrats don’t. They were out opposing the nomination within minutes of the announcement. They have a fantasy that […]

Demand Versus Demands

Here’s an irony for you. The word “demand” as it is used in economics and “demands” as it is used in politics sound like the same thing – yet the two words are polar opposites. In economics “demand” is what someone wants and what those who want their business work to supply. People want to […]

Earlier today (August 15, 2018) I sent out two tweets intended to cause trouble for my political enemies — totalitarians who want to leave no aspect of human life — even the most trivial — free from their commands. The first: https://twitter.com/jneilschulman/status/1029905033742172160 J. Neil Schulman @jneilschulman Why do progressives want to ban non-biodegradable plastic straws, […]

Greg Gutfeld: I challenge you to respond on either The Five or The Greg Gutfeld Show. Back in my salad days as a libertarian activist, in Fall 1974, I organized the first-ever conference on countereconomics – CounterCon I – featuring Samuel Edward Konkin III as keynote speaker. In May, 1975, Sam, who supplemented his income […]
