Voluntaryism is a Vehicle

Doug Kendall wrote in a Facebook group, “Voluntaryism is the vehicle, not the destination.”

As long as I’ve identified as a voluntaryist, I’ve never looked at it quite like that. I’ve always considered voluntaryism as a less-controversial synonym of “anarchism”. Really, though, as Doug points out, voluntaryism is the vehicle, anarchism, the “free society”, the “absence of the state”, or even “the absence of unrighteous dominion” is the destination. Love it.
