Innovation Makes Anarchism Possible

I had a nice conversation with a friend today about Anarchism. One of the things he was curious about was the probability of statelessness in our lifetime.

I’m optimistic. I believe that entrepreneurs and innovators will make the state obsolete and it may even happen in my lifetime. Bitcoin completely out competes the Federal Reserve and projects like the open Bazar are building a free market future. It’s simply a matter of the right profit incentives meeting the right great minds.

Will the state totally go away? Probably not. However the trends are pointing to a future where the government has less power. We could see a world where democratic states go the way of the english monarch. Still existing, still having a minor influence but not an all power beast like the past.
