...persons can choose to make the State
nearly irrelevant in their lives. I believe that recognition of
irrelevance is the only path that would eventually lead towards a
critical mass, wherein enough support of the irrelevance would make
non-compliance with Statist edicts virtually unenforceable, and the
State would die.
This is similar to the philosophy behind agorism, although more detailed. As for the commodity backed currencies, some have been tried with some success. Bernard Von Nothaus' Liberty Dollars come to mind. Not surprisingly, the apparatus of the State did not react well, but I think most of the legal issues with the Liberty Dollar could be avoided and maybe after Mr. Nothaus serves his sentence he would be interested in pursuing another such currency.
With regard to the "social debts" it seems to me that one area in which the freedom movement is lacking, at least in the popular view, is such debt. It seems to me that demonstrating that an anarchic society could provide for those type of needs in society is something that could gain a great deal of distance for the movement. People would like to see that the poor, the aged, and the sick will be cared for, that the environment is respected, and so on. Mutual aid societies and the proliferation of private conservation efforts will need to be a part of the freedom movement before we are freed from the state (and of course, they will be a part at some point).
