      Had no idea that this term even existed!!!

      • japes16, a month ago

        of course you haven't

        It is not one that most people in the power structure want the common people to familiarize themselevs with

      • ericguillermoguzman, a month ago

        I prefer consensualism, voluntarism doesn't necessarily imply the agreement of two different parties, but I generally agree with the concept.

      • gigi, a month ago

        Another -ism?? You guys just keep expanding my political horizons...

      • calyptratustzm, 25 days ago

        Yes, yes it does. Voluntaryism is very much about that all agreements have to be based on consent.

      • ericguillermoguzman, 25 days ago

        I meant the term itself doesn't necessarily refer to an agreement, it's more of a word that goes against coercion. Consensualism may be more apt at describing the philosophy, but it's not the conventional term used.

      LOL! love Julians hat, he had it on last time too

      Great questions by @mrof4343, although the title of the debate seems to be confused according to the responses

      • japes16, a month ago

        yup. technicalities on definition, but Julian is failing to answer the questions so going with the other guy on this .one

    • caratara, a month ago

      HEHEHE

        But if every political ideology had to be universal then there are no real political ideologies!

        • japes16, a month ago

          so if a non-governmental, self-proclaimed leadership takes over an anarchist group with the group's consent, is that voluntaryism?

          you guys can leave video comments as closing statements by the way

              Julian deflects from answering any question because he doesn't fundamentally understand any of the arguments. @mrof4343 made very good cases regardless, solid performance.

              • ericguillermoguzman, a month ago

                Notice in each debate Julian runs to contrarianism under the "it's all subjective" argument. He has no arguments.

              • mrof4343, a month ago

                I'm not an anarchist, although the definitions get murky because AnCaps and Voluntaryists have a LOT of overlap.

                I'm also pro-life, I was sorry to see that your debate didn't have a better result.

              • calyptratustzm, 25 days ago

                Not all anarchists are voluntaryists, but all voluntaryists are anarchists. You can not be a voluntaryist and support rulers. All anarchy means is a disbelief in others having authority over you (which is always held by force and/or coercion by definition).

              • ericguillermoguzman, 25 days ago

                Well the thing is they defer authority to an individual by their own volition. So I can understand a government that exists in a voluntary society

            • calyptratustzm, 25 days ago

              This was a headache to watch. Julian has not at all understood what voluntaryism is, ans therefore has absolutely no clue what it is he is argumenting against. It was a horrible display of red-herrings, non-sequiturs and straw-man arguments. As a lecturer on rational thinking and logic discourse, …

                I was pulled down a rabbit hole. But I give credit to Tim for being a strong debater. I knew he would present a challenge and predict he will win the tournament,

              Funny how socialism demolished Somalia, and ever since the statetheism failed there, the country has been under constant improvement, under what can only vaguely be described as anarchy.
              Somalia is a complete non-argument. It always has been.

              As for mrof4343 I have to say that he is actually …

                My argument had less to do with the idea of anarchy in Somalia, it was more about the lack of resources and the conflict it presents.
