>I only believe in self interest. Self interest. Self interest. Self interest. Self interest. Self interest.
Yeah? So what? People go against their own self-interest all the fucking time. They are also irrational. All the fucking time they are irrational - do I even have to mention "The Madness of Crowds"? Fucking free-market theory /depends on/ everyone acting in their own self-interest - sellers and buyers all. But you know what?
YOU CAN'T HAVE A FREE MARKET UNDER THOSE CONDITIONS BECAUSE THAT'S NOT HOW REAL PEOPLE WORK AND IF YOU TRY TO MAKE THEM WORK THAT WAY, CONGRATULATIONS, YOU ARE THE TYRANT.
And that's the thing - people espousing free-market theory and insist on society working that way ignore human behavior outright and say "things would be just fine if everyone did X." Freemarketism is an "ism" that people "believe in" like you "believe in" - it's not something that can ever exist. It's religion. It's faith. It's a fictional idealized thing that if you believe that it can actually ever happen, you should also believe in frictionless inclined planes in physics, which also don't exist, and in this universe, can't.
You mean like the fucking Pinkertons during the Carnegie steel strike?
So instead of one tyrant, you want thousands of tyrants. Brilliant.
>you absolutely do need private means of protecting yourself, and this includes private police, private insurance, private courts, weapons as well
This is warlordism. You want warlords, with their own little fiefdoms, probably imagining yourself as one of them.
