What is Anarcho-Capitalism?

Anarcho-Capitalism is a political philosophy proclaiming that a laissez-faire economic system is paramount and must never be hindered or obstructed by the state.

In the core view of the anarcho-capitalist, the state is unnecessary and detrimental to the free exchange of goods, services and ideas, which are the catalyst that propels civilization forward.

Anarcho-capitalism seeks to maintain organically grown order resulting from voluntary communication between private entities and individuals adhering to the principles of self-regulation and non-aggression, allowing the overarching ethos to recognize natural, inalienable rights without a centralized authority.

  • Lysander Spooner
  • Ludwig Von Mises
