    You couldn't have Capitalism without some level of authority, at the very basic level to give authority to and settle disputes with regards to private property. Also an absolute monarchy, in effect, still constitutes a State.
    No, what you need is the element of trust, Silk Road showed this was possible, not only without the state but under the threat of state sanctions.

    By state I was referring to socialism.

    So, in your AnCap society what happens when a property claim is disputed?

    Also you really need to stop equating the State and Socialism they are not even nearly the same thing.

    LOL at you guys, making stupid false dichotomies and making all the usual pro-market sophistries. Please, have you people even read Adam Smith? You cite these hundred year old argument without realising that there is a pretty fundamental difference between bakers and butchers providing me my dinner by serving there own self interest, and high frequency financial speculation. I'm calling it, Smith would be in the Labour Party, or at the very least have a pretty strong one nation bent. Go read some books, I suggest Ha Joon Chang as a good place to start.

    What about left wing capitalism? :holmes:
    thank you, I feel like this entire argument is absurd, has no one given any thought to the social democracy that governs pretty much the entire western world

    Use an independent arbitrator or a jury of ones peers.

    Anything but an oligarchy (including monarchy) is likely to be socialist.

    Current right wing means low taxes that cover what we need without anything going to waste.
