Anarchy Defended: Reply to Schneider
Tags Legal SystemOther Schools of ThoughtProduction Theory
Jordan Schneider's article is directed in part against a talk I gave in 2004 titled “Libertarian Anarchism: Responses to Ten Objections,” in which I defended the moral and practical superiority of stateless over state-based legal systems. Schneider is unconvinced, maintaining that market anarchism will be unworkable because of the absence of legal objectivity. Unfortunately, it’s not entirely clear to me what Schneider takes a legal system’s objectivity to consist in, or why this feature is supposed to be available to states but not to anarchies.
