  •  I'm sure Jillette has a good idea what he's saying (0+ / 0-)

    I may not agree with him on a lot of things economically, but he certainly is not an idiot.You may not agree with him either but I think you can find hours of him at least detailing his positions. He is quite rational on most other things. He may have a definition of the term other than what you are familiar with.

    But again, please remind me which anarchist economic system are you talking about which is successfully in play. What anarchist method of government is helping what developed nation to thrive?

      during the revolution/civil war to look at in terms of what an anarchist economic system would look like, though I wasn't actually talking about anarchist economic systems, I was talking about the difference between libertarians and anarchists and how libertarians aren't anarchists.

      And I doubt he does have an idea of what he's saying, not that I've heard him say that. But really, there's a bunch of libertarians going around claiming to be anarchists now and they just plain aren't. He happens to be one of the people who doesn't know what he's talking about. He is not that smart.

      He may have a definition of the term other than what you are familiar with.
      Yes, like I said, a right wing definition that isn't actually correct. They decided that anarchists were cool and so they took the name, just like with libertarians last century.
