I have trouble understanding how anyone can be against anarchy. Look at all those pale-skinned punks in the Sex Pistols video linked above. They seem so charming! And they denounced Jimmy Saville years before anyone else did.
I understand that a lot of people hate anarchists. But hating anarchists seems like a slippery slope. You start by hating Johnny Rotten, and soon you’ll have to be hating Ex-Army. The next thing you know, you’re wearing a dark blue uniform and marching in lockstep while giving a Roman salute to a giant portrait of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Anarchists are humans, with human flaws, and it’s easy to hate any group of humans that you can label.
I don’t see any difference between the humans who call themselves “anarchists” and the humans who call themselves “libertarians.” (Theoretically, a libertarian might choose to live under a formally recognized king, whereas an anarchist would never choose to be part of a community with a formally recognized king. Of course the charismatic men who lead anarchist communities are often kings in all but name!)
I haven’t read enough Hoppe to make a serious argument about the philosophy of anarchism, so I will start off by looking at and listening to Fulford, a guy who hates anarchists.
I suspect he hates libertarians too.
Everything below is from Fulford:
