What are your thought on anarchist that dislike anarchocapitalism on the grounds that capitalism is just as bad as the state?

moralanarchism:

The majority of the times the problem comes down to definitions. 

Most anarcho-capitalists define capitalism as the voluntary interaction between individuals. 

Most anarchists who despise capitalism define capitalism as what the current system we live under.  Which is a marriage between the state and corporations. 

Though, I’d hope that all anarchists, capitalist, socialist, mutualist, or communist would agree that all interactions should be voluntary.  They might have slight disagreement on ownership, capital goods, labor theory of value, or property.  But they all agree that no one should initiate force against others. 

The criticism against anarcho-capitalists should be against the Ayn Rand Puritan work ethic.  A lot of an-caps believe that work in the most important thing.  I think that is absolutely ridiculous. 

Work is only a means to an end. 

Anarchists should be concerned about individual happiness.

Called the “City of 1001 Churches,” Ani stood on various trade routes and its many religious buildings, palaces, and fortifications were amongst the most technically and artistically advanced structures in the world.
At its height, Ani had a population of 100,000–200,000 people and was the rival of Constantinople, Baghdad and Damascus. Long ago renowned for its splendor and magnificence, Ani was abandoned and largely forgotten following the earthquake of 1319.

52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.

The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.

His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.

thinking for yourself.

might just save the god damn world.

The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”

That quote deserved to be bolded.
