“I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.”
Zero Gov now has a forum. By popular demand and reader emails, we have developed a forum and will be unveiling it today. The blog has been a terrific vehicle for…a one way conversation. Mind you, I love the replies and welcome them but the forum will allow readers and editors to be much more interactive. It will allow much more drilling and deep philosophical exchange.
I am hoping that most everyone will channel Socrates and discover that, at times, the questions are more informative than the answers. We have a variety of boards created and posted now and hope that this will provide the impetus for the creation (or potential elimination) of boards and other areas of interest as traffic and discussions merit.
This is the abolitionist project and we are on the cusp of shifting the paradigm and convincing our fellow humans that ownership of another against their consent is wrong any way you shake it. As I have mentioned before, Wilberforce started this fight and we will continue the battle against initiated violence and its largest protagonist, government.
I would ask that we conduct ourselves with gentlemanly comportment and keep the insults instead of arguments to a minimum. We invite every creed and philosophical touchstone into the conversation.
Our tendency is to be non-interventionist freed [sic] market individualists whose influences tend to be Hoppe, Rothbard, von Mises and Spooner so that will most likely be the characteristic meme on the board but I invite the “other” anarchists, minarchists and even government supremacists to come and test your rhetorical mettle. I am hoping this enterprise creates new friends and goes even further to test veracity and philosophical depth of the yen and possibility for a stateless society.
Please visit the forum and see if it suits your fancy. Be sure to advise us on any recommended changes.

We will have a drawing at the end of the month from members of the Forum to win a copy of James J. Martin’s seminal book, Men Against the State. The winner will be announced on 1 April 2011.
