In an anarchy, what would be done to to this criminal
? Would he just be exiled from a community? Would he merely be offered rehabilitative services? What, precisely, would be done to prevent him for harming another individual after such an incident?
I want to address a few possible (anticipated) responses in case your reaction resembles one of those following.
a) "He would be less likely to commit such a horrid act if raised in an anarchy."
b) "Which type out of the myriad of types of anarchy, son?!?!? You clearly don't even understand anarchy if you think we all believe the same thing! Anarchy just means a lack of government. Grrr!!! Get a clue!"
c) "The government does x, y, and z, all these awful things!"
Correspondingly, here are points I emphasize:
A) Unless you believe nobody
would do anything so awful, then you have only dodged the questions. I still want to know what would be done to a guy who does that, regardless of how few may exist. Please just be honest and directly answer the question.
B) If you have a personal flavor of anarchism, then I want to know what would be done according to your personal flavor of anarchism. If you merely claim to lack a belief that there should be have a government, then please just be honest and admit you have no answer.
C) You may raise excellent criticisms of the government and provide a great argument. But if you point out the government's flaws and injustices, all I ask is that you please just explicitly answer my questions and not duck them. Please just provide your honest answer.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to you replies!
