Congrats statist. What are you going to do with body, mind, and soul (not to mention money)?
Nice non-answer. Doesn't surprise me that anarchists can't abide by there own "non-aggression" principle.

Maybe I'm too dumb to abide by it and just need help to live it.

Tell me what would be a principled life for me and we can consider it.

So, what's first?

Maybe work on that before you go telling other people what's wrong with them.

W/ one current issue the moral decay starts w/ legislatures who put greed, money and reelection over the people and their rights to be safe from harm.

I'm not a super morally virtuous anarchist like half the right-wingers on this claim to be. If things think slavery and coercion of individuals are of the utmost importance to anarchists, then they ought to oppose things like Forever 21 sweatshops in Bangladesh. But, they don't have any moral dilemma with engaging in these markets, because it is a "market" and not the "state." But then the entire morally virtuous thing doesn't really mean anything.

Is the entire anarchist thing really about morals, or is it about greed? I've never heard an anarchist support the divestment of companies that use slave labor. How is it possible to be so inconsistent.

Yes, corporate greed. Their greed takes precedence over the common good.

Are you ditching Team Blue for anarchy?

Or are you simply trying to virtue signal over Team Red?
No. There's a venn diagram where the interests of anarchists overlap with those opposed to a police state. People dying in police custody is in that zone

And I can't fathom how parental influences don't account for anything.


Which child would one think would have a higher IQ and a better chance in life ? Mama June's or Neil Degrasse Tyson's ?
They explain how they controlled for parental effects. They specifically looked at brothers with significant age gaps.

Weird that you only mention in regard to the MCU and not movies like ghost in the shell or when they change the race of real people like in 21.
