“…I hold that a little rebellion now and again is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical…”
–Archy (Latin -archia , Greek –arch): political rule; government.
My name is Robert Taylor and I run A Little Rebellion: Archy’s Archenemy.
I write because I have to; out of both inspiration and frustration at the world around me. I defend and support all forms of governing society through polycentric law, decentralized insitutions and the market – Anarchy, rules without rulers- and oppose root and branch the archaic, coercive and authoritarian model of Archy – institutionalized coercion – that still reigns over our minds, culture and institutions.
I write with the firm conviction that anarchism and liberty, as Edward Abbey said, are not “romantic fable[s] but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners.”
In its most mildest form, Archy gives us police states, surveillance, restrictions of liberties and speech, stifled innovation, regulatory cobwebs, and a numbing, bland egalitarian culture. And in its worst state, Archy gives us guillotines, gulags, and gas chambers.
I oppose taxes, government regulations, police states, drug laws, corporate welfare, subsidies, central banking, money printing and live my life in internal and external rebellion against political rule everywhere. I support freed markets, Bitcoin, peaceful parenting, homeschooling/unschooling, self-improvement, agorism, and the infinite ways human beings can peacefully cooperate in the market.
I defend the classical liberal/libertarian/voluntaryist tradition of free markets, sound money, peace, civil liberties, and civil society against all forms of initiated coercion.
Against Archy, I take my stand and offer “a little rebellion.”
