What do people here think of Dave Rubin?

To me, he has many of the same issues that Sargon does, and he also claims to be a champion of free speech while he blocks people on Twitter.

One reason I'd like to move away from Utah. The separation of church and state doesn't seem to exist here. Our elected politicians don't represent us; everything they do goes through the LDS Church leadership first.

Free Market policies don't generate more freedom anyway. They lead to things like lower wages and long work hours, and not everyone has the means to start their own business.

I won't deny that the Market is effective at meeting people's demands, though.

I wouldn't consider it a true free market capitalist economy (capitalism according to the dictionary means "an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state"). Too many regulations, taxes, regulatory fees, etc.; and too many special interest groups control most of the wealth. It's more like fascistic corporatism (corporatism means "the control of a state or organization by large interest groups.") Capitalism and corporatism are two different things.

Well, it's not necessarily an easy question to answer. Looking it up, capitalism is generally defined as private ownership of the means of production, like SonGokuMonkey said (probably best to disregard my definition of it, then). But he believes that the economy is far too regulated by the government, whereas I believe it's regulated too little. Nonetheless, I think it's widely agreed by most economists that the American economy is, at the end of the day, very free market.

Also, free market capitalism seems to be defined as a kind of capitalism, so there's that.

So, while it's true that Anarcho-Capitalism has never been tried before, the closest thing to it was probably the Congo Free State which was the private property of King Leopold II. It had a privately owned police force even.

And guess what? It lead to a population decrease due to the atrocities committed within' it.
