Since Bitcoin news is heavily involving China these days, it's a great time for me to present some articles to my fellow anarchists (and anyone else who is reading along) about how anarchy could be implemented as a solution to a knotty problem in China.

I read these articles a few years ago with little understanding of the issues involving Taiwan and mainland China.  I came away with an understanding of that issue plus some great insight into how anarchy should look in practice as people are given the true right to govern themselves (not the fake right called Democracy).

A brief introduction to the China/Taiwan issue: The Republic of China was founded in 1912 and governed mainland China until 1949.  The RoC withdrew to the island of Taiwan.  Mainland china was then governed by a different, Communist government called the People's Republic of China.  (Do not get the RoC and the PRoC confused.)  Today while some feel that Taiwan should be "independent," this idea is offensive to many.  It is offensive to those that feel that the RoC is the proper government of all of China.  It is offensive to those that feel that the PRoC is the proper government of all of China.  There's a lot of tension between Taipei (Taiwan/RoC) and Beijing (PRoC) - and the issue may seem strange to those with a western idea of "independence" that conflicts with the view of "One China."

Bevin Chu presents the real solution: market anarchism: let each person decide who they want to govern them.  It could be the RoC, or the PRoC, or some other institution.

Chu was a bit hard to follow but I felt that the effort to read his articles were rewarding to me because he really did depict anarchism well.  I moved from an understanding that called for the abolition of government to an understanding that if everyone were simply granted the right to secession at an individual level we would have what we need.  I've sometimes seen this called panarchy, or individual sovereignty.

Chu's other articles were pretty good as well:

Another word for what Chu is describing is libertarianism or something close to it

How and why is the Chinese Politburo relinquish its total power to anarchism now, when China has so much cash?
