We Can Do Better Than This

Writes Free Your Kids:

When we libertarians, voluntarists, and anarchists say that the state should not be providing a service, we are not saying that the service in question shouldn’t be provided.

The hungry need to be fed. The disabled need to be cared for. The children need to be educated. The roads need to be maintained. The poor need to be uplifted. The sick need to be healed.

We acknowledge that problems exist, and always will exist. We submit that a free people can solve these problems better than an overbearing state. We can do all of these things (and more) without a violent, tyrannical monopoly pointing guns in our faces and threatening us with cages. We can do better than this. And we will, if given the opportunity.
