I feel you're just being contradictory. Debtors prison? Honestly... I'm out of touch but... seriously, yo.
Labor, rather Toil to put it more accurately, is more than just time in my opinion.
Also, the influence of your community is not so easily ignored. You are not an island. You owe your support system mutual support. Shoulders of giants..


I owe society nothing, but nor does it owe me anything.  Specificly, I don't owe the society that I was born into any loyalty, although I might choose to grant same for some time in exchange for ongoing consideration.  Likewise, my society does not owe me any support, although support might be provided. 

Quote
I'm convincing you that capitalism and anarchism are not compatable, and that capitalism requires some slavery. We seem to be agreeing more and more.


You have convinced me of nothing, and have yet failed to provide an argument.

Quote
I think your image of me and my values is a bit lacking, not your image of yourself.

My image of your capacity of rational thought is a bit lacking.  I know too little of the rest of you to form an opinion.  I honestly have no opinion upon your values, because I see no evidence that you have formed any of your own; all you do is quote other people's opinions.  That would be like me quoting my pastor in a debate with an atheist, and never so much as mentioning the Bible.  The impressions, opinions or value judgements of others are entirely irrelevant.

Quote


Also, also, look up Socrates. Now, there's an arguing fellow!


And my point is, once again, made for me.  Now you want me to read (again, mind you) the opinions of an ancient socialist, as if I should sudden declare, "Of course!  How could I not have seen it before!"

Quote

Edit: Abe Lincoln wouldn't have called that 'word salad'.



More word salad.  You are a liberal arts major, aren't you.  That degree is perfect for a career in food service, BTW.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

In practice, what you describe is the exception to the rule within a state capitalist framework. Dependency on employers prevents many from ever coming far enough out of debt to do what they want.
I have a hard time with equating pay to exoneration or choice because reliance on any paycheck does not let you all the way out of the state or capitalist's control. Pay is giving a man a fish and assuming he has means to stockpile fish until he can learn to fish.

More nonsense.  Pay is giving the cabin boy a fish out of the day's catch, he learns to fish by observation and participation in the trade of the fisherman.  His increases in the skill of the trade increase his value to the captain of the boat, and also his pay.  Eventually his wages exceed his need, and he can save up to buy his own boat from the boatmaker; or simply convince the boatmaker of his creditworthiness based upon his reputation as an experienced fisherman and crewman, in which case the boatmaker secures an ongoing source for fish for his own family's table.  Every step without coercion.  Employing an unskilled laborer is both giving him a fish for a day's work, and teaching him to fish.

Pay is to coercion as exoneration is to execution.  This does not in any way suggest that pay is equal to exoneration.
Pay is merely a civil agreement to perform for compensation so no it does not let you all the way out of state control, this is not its promises.
However it very well may put you all the way out of any particular capitalist's control, if by control you really mean enticement.

Pay is giving a man a fish and assuming he has means to stockpile fish until he can learn to fish.

Taking the example of the fisherman.  I had a tenant that would fish in Alaska during the season, so I know just a little about it.  I do know he would work dangerous and difficult 18 hour shifts for weeks at a time with no break.  All the fishermen would get a share of what the boat catches and they pressure each other to be excellent, and the boat captain and owner gets extra for risking their equipment.

After each season he would then take some months to relax, vacation, and enjoy himself in the city of his choice around the world until he ran out of money.  Then he would go back and fish again.
He is a good fisherman.  Some of his friends worked several seasons in a row and together bought a boat.  He now works for them.
All of those people have choice and voluntarily made that life for themselves.  They are friends, and each are happy, though they are no longer all on the same side of the employee/employer relationship.
None of them consider themselves slaves, even if you might.

Form a premise that we can agree upon, and then try to build up from that logical beginning.  For example, you have already conceded that you own yourself, and that I own myself.  That's a premise. 

And based upon that premise; that I own myself, then no one else can own me without my consent.  How exactly, did I come to owe anything?  Did I consent to some great 'social contract'?  If you're going to say that I owe because I was born, when did I agree to that?  Even communist societies raise children for the benefit of the communist society, not for the children.  How do the children born in China under Mao owe Mao, or even China, anything?

What is there to elaborate?  Those words are opposites, and they are absolutes.  There can be no middle ground; literally speaking.  If you are working for someone, either you agreed to the terms in order to improve your own conditions, or you were forced into servitude against your own will.  Being 'forced' to work for a living simply because the alternative is hunger is not involuntary; society does not owe you a living, much less a comfortable one.

'Consenting' to toil for a capitalist has never been free of coersion. One can be practically owned without one's consent.

Every job I've had has taught me something.
The learning is the responsibility of the learner.
The aware awaken, the sleepers slumber.

The point being, when we lose the difference between the aware and the sleepers, society loses.
That difference, often, is pay.

Payment is a signal.  It is information.  When we lose information we lose something of value.  a society that willfully destroys that, is not going to be at an advantage to one that retains it unless there is something of greater worth to replace it.  Present that counterbalancing social benefit and I will convert.

If Capitalism can work, how come there are no historical records of it working?
Will respond in my related thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=210802.msg2416291#msg2416291
I move to not derail this thread. If anyone wants to continue, Ill post responses there.

Glad to meet you there. The 'fight' against the collectivistic religion (Lenin, A. Smith, Th. Hobbes) must go on.

I don't know guys. I think anarchy is like communism. It sounds great on paper, but doesn't scale well beyond a commune.
Anarchy is everything you enjoy in life, and violence is the opposite.

Personally I might do well in an anarchy. But make no mistake I would organize an army and take what I want. I would charge you tribute or burn your village, take slaves, etc.
Join me and be with the strong! In exchange for your unwavering obedience and occasional military service I will allow you to live in peace.
Gota love anarchy!

your idea of anarchy is flawed. . . sounds more like a state.

It sounds like if the idea became reality then every country (if there were any) would be in constant turmoil.
