I had to demote myself to 105. I misunderstood the question of privatizing police forces. They could be sub-contrcted to private firms, but there would have to be a higher authority to watch over them.

Im no Facist!
galenrox said:Alright baby.
Why don't you go back to Italy and build some more square concrete buildings as you ally yourself with Hitler you facist!
Kelzie said:I will. I'll drink some nice wine, eat some good food, develop technology, and generally help advance the human race. You and all your anarcho friends can live like cave men. Or like your gods in Spain 60 years ago. Not that they accomplished much besides SURVIVING.
galenrox said:lol, how about the more realistic situation where we'll live like kings while you live under the oppression of government.
Yeah, because so much good came from Italy under the facists, plus we've got plenty of fine wine and food out in Iowa. Not to mention most are buildings aren't hollowed out concrete slabs!
galenrox said:Yeah, Europe today, and economy that is solely propped up by W's stupidity and race riots, yeah, fantastic example.
And of course, without law we'd forget how technology works.:roll: :2wave:
galenrox said:How so? You just keep saying things that you haven't backed up sufficiently. From business comes innovation, and business would thrive in anarchy.
galenrox said:Then the company joins with another company to afford a bigger security force (plus that would raise the question why someone would pay for a security force that costs more money than the business could afford to pay in the first place? If the business can't afford that level of a security force, then they don't have enough money to take to pay for what is spent on the larger security force in the first place)
What you're talking about is idiots. Most people won't spend money to take less money. That'd be like me buying a $20 knife so I could jack you for $5.
galenrox said:Of course it would. Businesses wouldn't waste their time stealing from each other, they make far more actually selling goods and services. You're basing all of this on the assumption that everyone in business is a pirate who can't afford a ship or can't find international waters.
galenrox said:It's a bad investment. If he was smart he would've started a smaller pawn shop with enough money to hire competent security, if it meant protecting all he had. You don't see banks taking those chances, even with a public police force.

Comrade Brian said:Actually I am not an anarcho-communist, I'm a communist.
The difference is that anarcho-communists want communism almost immediatly after capitalism, I and mainstream communists want a socialist "transition stage".
The reason why further left=higher score, is because both communists and moderate-left both disagree on privatization. But communists want a stateless society, whereas most others don't.
