Why does a blog called No State No Problem have a post about Trump?Why do I talk about Politics on Twitter?
Why will I be writing posts that talk about the Constitution?
These are all good questions.
I decided to name my future blog No State No Problem while reading Lew Rockwell’s Against the State: An Anarcho-Capitalist Manifesto and dreaming of a stateless society.The name is easy to remember, clear in its intention, and not taken. If you have never tried to register a website name, you may not be able to understand the importance of “not taken”, but I ensure you, it is the hardest to overcome.
Yet, I recognize that we live in a world where the majority of people believe that the state is not only necessary, but desirable.
We are a minority, and the uninitiated tend to dismiss our ideas when they are presented directly.
The only way to open some people up to our ideas might be to begin with a Constitutional argument.
The only way to reach others may be a political campaign.
Ron Paul introduced me to Rockwell and Rothbard, and he was a congressman running for president. His message first resonated with me because he spoke of what was constitutional, and those arguments opened me up to the others.
I also believe that we cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
I think there are constitutional amendments that could make things better.
I believe that there are some candidates that will be better than others.
I believe that if the minarchists make progress, then we make progress, and minarchism is easier for the masses to accept.
So I will talk about the dream of a stateless society, and reference Rothbard, Hoppe, Rockwell, and others, but I will also try to deal with the reality of today, and try to find ways to improve it.
