funky@, yes, i'm enjoying this and am glad that others are too. i wasn't sure when i posted the question, tbh. but our conversation in the prior thread (complexity/complication) reminded me of some of the arguments made by capitalists. so, i thought we could have another question/answer on @101 to demonstrate, and in my eyes undermine, the silliness of ancap logic through dissecting a major, and largely unexamined, presupposition of that logic. the funny thing is for me is that this kind of play could be used for many of modern civilization's features, like, as mentioned before, schooling.
as to electronic markets, i see them as an extension and continuation of the capitalist paradigm in that so-called cyberspace, and an instant invite into most peoples' homes, is simply another form of cyclical (primitive) accumulation; TV but with a far more active participation from so-called consumers themselves.
