Partial List of Requirements

  1. You have to read the Bible from cover to cover, in chronological order, following our reading assignments.

  2. This is a one-year program. You can take longer, but you can't take less than one year to read the entire Bible and complete other program requirements.

  3. This is a 365-day program. You can take more days, but you cannot complete more than 1/365th of the program in any 24-hour period.

  4. You have to answer one or two easy, obvious, no-brainer, no-trick questions on each of these 365 days.
      "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"

  5. You must blog your answers to our questions. We will set up the blog for you. The blog will time-stamp your answers and will be a public record of your compliance with the terms of this wager. We will "monetize" the blog with advertisements of our choice which will bring us a minimum of $1,000 in revenue per year, enabling us to pay off the bet in the extraordinarily unlikely and improbable event that we lose this bet. You will get paid $1,000; we will retain all revenue generated above $1,000. All advertisements will be family-friendly; no gambling.

  6. You are not required to provide any proof whatsoever that you can pay up when you lose this bet. (And you will lose.) You will not be required to give us your credit card number. You will not be required to send us a registered letter from your attorney or accountant certifying that $1,000 has been placed in escrow in the event you lose this bet. (And you will lose.) Since we're anarchists and don't believe in "the government," we're not going to go crying to "the government" when you lose this bet but won't pay up. (And you will lose.) 

  7. If we lose the bet and don't pay, you may sue us in one of the government's courts, put a lien on our bank account, and send an armed Marshall out to shoot our dog, taser us, throw a flash grenade in our child's playpen, put us in handcuffs, waterboard us, lock us in a cage to be sodomized by a psychopath, and nuke our whole neighborhood "back to the stone age," but we won't sue you and ask the government to hurt you when you lose and don't pay. That's because we're anarchists, and you're not.

  8. Yet.

Why You Are Going To Lose This Bet.

There are two reasons why you're going to lose this wager.

First, Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution would say this about you:

You are a victim of Educational Malpractice.

The men who who signed the Declaration of Independence and risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to make America the most prosperous and most admired nation in history would say:

  • You are not a real American.
  • You are a phony Christian, one who makes Jesus puke
  • You are a lousy steward of the gifts, talents, privileges and rights with which you were endowed by your Creator, and a waste of awesome human potential.

We are going to change that for you. By transforming you into a Bible-believing Christian anarchist, America's Founders would agree you have become

These were the three goals of Samuel Adams in  the first letter he sent to colonial Americans through the "Committees of Correspondence."
  • An Extraordinary American,
  • An Extraordinary Christian,
  • An Extraordinary Human Being.

Even though this is a "wager," what we really want is for you to experience the most profound, massive personal transformation of your entire life. We're really on your side.

We are here to transform you.

We're going to make sure you read the Bible, understand the Bible, and become a Bible-believing Christian anarchist.

Colonial American One-Room Schoolhouse 2.0

We're selling the education that government required in public schools 400 years ago.

Sort of.

If you checked out my résumé below, you read how I was denied a license to practice law in California because my allegiance to God is greater than my allegiance to the government. Today I would not be allowed to become a Naturalized American Citizen had I been born in a foreign country.

And I must admit, a few years ago I was just like you are now, and I would have looked at someone calling himself a "Christian anarchist" as loony wacko.

I probably would have been put to death 400 years ago because I want to abolish all civil governments. My brand of non-coercion ("pacifism") and proposed abolition of "the State" -- the machinery of violence and compulsion -- would have been anathema in centuries past. It is still controversial enough to bar me from any government job, including public school teacher.

America's Founding Fathers were under the mistaken impression that the Bible requires human beings to form governments, a proposition no Bible-believing Christian anarchist accepts.

But there is a core similarity between the "Anarchist Bible Bet" home study program and the curriculum compelled by every government in North America 400 years ago.

This education program is based on the Bible.

The entire concept of "public schools" was created by Bible-believing Christians following the Protestant Reformation in order to make sure every citizen could read the Bible. [If you already know this, skip the evidence that follows.]

One of the first public school laws in America is known today as "The Old Deluder Satan Act" because it began with these words:

It being one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of the Scriptures, as in former times by keeping them in an unknown tongue, so in these latter times by persuading from the use of tongues, that so that at least the true sense and meaning of the original might be clouded and corrupted...; and to the end that learning may not be buried in the grave of our forefathers, in church and commonwealth.... It is therefore ordered that every township in this jurisdiction, after the Lord hath increased them to fifty households shall forthwith appoint one within their town to teach all such children as shall resort to him to write and read, whose wages shall be paid either by the parents or masters of such children, or by the inhabitants in general....
"The Old Deluder Satan Act," Massachusetts, 1647

The 1636 rules of Harvard declared:

Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17.3) and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let every one seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of Him (Prov. 2, 3). Every one shall so exercise himself in reading the Scriptures twice a day that he shall be ready to give such an account of his proficiency therein.

That's our Program. Read the Bible twice a day. Get a Harvard education like Samuel Adams.

The 1690 Connecticut law declared:

This [legislature] observing that... there are many persons unable to read the English tongue and thereby incapable to read the holy Word of God or the good laws of this colony... it is ordered that all parents and masters shall cause their respective children and servants, as they are capable, to be taught to read distinctly the English tongue.

You were denied this kind of Bible-centered Education. You are a victim of educational malpractice. Atheistic education and ubiquitous secular media have consumed the majority of your waking hours and a moral cancer has metastasized in your heart, mind, soul, and strength.

In the early 1960's, the U.S. Supreme Court banned the Bible* from public schools, along with voluntary prayer. One of the Justices who concurred in this secularization was honest enough to admit that removing religion from public schools was directly contrary to the intentions of America's Founders:

Religion was once deemed to be a function of the public school system. The Northwest Ordinance, which antedated the First Amendment, provided in Article III that
"Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."

Many territories, when they applied for admission to the union. repeated those words verbatim in their state constitutions. Nebraska in 1875 was the last state to copy these words into their constitution.

The Government today prevents students from being taught the Bible, "religion, morality, and knowledge." Every single person who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution would say that secular schools are a threat to "good government and the happiness of mankind," and a government that imposes secularism on the people should be "abolished," just as they abolished the British government over the colonies for offenses far less serious.

Samuel Adams, the "Anti-Federalist," did not always agree with his cousin John Adams, the "Federalist." Sam wrote:

Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity . . . and, in subordination to these great principles, the love of their country. . . . In short, of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.

1790 Letter to John Adams,
who wrote back: "You and I agree."
Four Letters: Being an Interesting Correspondence Between Those Eminently Distinguished Characters, John Adams, Late President of the United States; and Samuel Adams, Late Governor of Massachusetts. On the Important Subject of Government
(Boston: Adams and Rhoades, 1802) pp. 9-10

This is exactly what The Anarchist Bible Bet will do for you. You can compensate for what the federal government denied you as a little boy or girl by enrolling in our year-long online Home-Study program.

If America's Founding Fathers could travel through time, what would they say is America's Most Pressing Problem?

I think they would say it is the fact that America is no longer a nation "Under God," but is an atheistic nation ("secular" sounds so much nicer than "atheistic"). The nation that once sent missionaries and Bibles around the world is now the world's greatest exporter of pornography and weapons of mass destruction.

And the root of this problem is a national system of compulsory atheistic education for all children 5-17 years of age. America's Founders would be horrified, outraged, apoplectic. Princeton professor Archibald Hodge saw the trend back in 1887, and sounded this alarm:

. . . I am as sure as I am of Christ's reign that a comprehensive and centralized system of national education, separated from religion, as is now commonly proposed, will prove the most appalling enginery for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of anti-social nihilistic ethics, individual, social and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen.[1]

He was right. If our Godly and virtuous ancestors could see schools and culture today, they would be screaming: "Are you people insane??" And if you defended yourself and your conservative credentials by agreeing that this situation is abhorrent, they would ask, "What are you doing about this?!?"

What are you doing about this? Of course, you are paying for this propagation of atheism and immorality with your taxes. Are you doing as much to stop it or counter it as the danger warrants?

No, you aren't. You don't want some secularist to accuse you of "trying to impose a theocracy" on America.

"Oh, no!" You say. "I don't believe in theocracy!"

Then you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Have you taken your own kids out of public schools? Terrific. But you yourself are still a victim of educational malpractice. You are more concerned about "extremists" who are accused of "trying to impose a theocracy" on America than you are energized by the realization that Christian Theocracy is is the answer to our problems.

America's Founders saw the dangers of tyranny because they had a Theocratic education as children. They did not believe in a "secular" government. You have been brainwashed to believe government must be "secular." Not surprisingly, you also accept tyranny.

Because of their Biblical education, America's Founding Fathers realized that "the Divine Right of Kings" was not a Biblical doctrine. You have been denied this kind of Bible-centered education by a Roman Empire-like regime that has declared war on God. You don't see half of what America's Founders saw. If they were here today, they would see not only that the "divine right of kings" is an unChristian concept, but they would see that the entire concept of "the nation-state" has been a complete failure since 1776. It was invented by rebels and is nowhere commanded or endorsed in the Bible.

By skipping "the 3 R's" (which you can quickly learn through the Ron Paul Curriculum or the Kahn Academy), twelve years of colonial American worldview education, covering "religion, morality, and knowledge" can be covered in just 12 months by reading through the entire Bible and four other works which are among the most important works in the history of western civilization, listening to audio lessons on the commute to work and back home in the evening, 20 minutes each way. Then each week attend a live Q&A webinar for laser coaching and clarification.

That's our Program. If you complete our assignments, you will be a Bible-believing Christian Anarchist, or we'll pay you $1,000.00.

You need this program.

Because as it stands now, you are an enemy of Christ.

The United States of America is the enemy of Christ and the most dangerous threat to humanity on the planet.

And you are a friend of this empire.

You are afraid that if "anarchists" abolish your government, it would be a bad thing. Government is your savior.

You are like unfaithful wives, having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God! Do you not know that being the world’s friend is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.
James 4:4 [Amplified Version]
Proof: Your Friend, The United States, is Evil

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy by Ronald Reagan. He was associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was a columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has had many university appointments, including Stanford University, where he was Senior Research Fellow in the Hoover Institution, George Mason University where he had a joint appointment as professor of economics and professor of business administration, and Georgetown University where he held the William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy in the Center for Strategic and International Studies. His internet columns have attracted a worldwide following. Roberts' latest books are The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West and How America Was Lost. Roberts says:

Americans need to understand that they have lost their country. The rest of the world needs to recognize that Washington is not merely the most complete police state since Stalinism, but also a threat to the entire world. The hubris and arrogance of Washington, combined with Washington’s huge supply of weapons of mass destruction, make Washington the greatest threat that has ever existed to all life on the planet. Washington is the enemy of all humanity.
How America Was Lost

"But . . . but," you stammer; "Isn't North Korea or Iran more evil and more dangerous than the federal government of the United States?

The United States fosters Violence

North Korea may be more evil, but it is not more dangerous. The United States already has a track record for staggering violence, and gives every indication of being willing to unleash even more unimaginable violence.

The United States fosters Ignorance

And it's not only a question of where the U.S. is today. No other empire has departed so far from such auspicious Christian beginnings. This comes as no surprise to anyone who looks at the United States from a Christian worldview.

  • The United States Supreme Court once boasted that the United States was "a Christian nation."
  • The Supreme Court repudiated that long-standing heritage decades ago, and is now engaged in a War on God and Christian morality.
  • The federal government will not even allow public school teachers to teach students that the Declaration of Independence is really true, because that document is based on the Christian worldview. Students can only be told that some folks a long time ago used to believe it was true. While most public school students know that Barack Obama is the President of the United States, most cannot name the Vice President, their Congressman or Senators, or summarize even the most basic features of American government as laid out in the Constitution.
    • Jefferson said, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.
    • America's Founders would say the United States is a "tyranny."
  • Of course, nearly half of all students in inner cities drop out of school before finishing high school, and half of those who finish school are functionally illiterate.
  • 400 years ago, public schools were formed to teach the Bible. The U.S. now bans the Bible; American students, who once led the world, now rank behind two dozen other nations in academic achievement; their lack of manners have earned the disrespect of the entire world, and Americans pay $12,608 per public school student per year for this educational malpractice.
The United States is no longer a "City upon a Hill."
It is an imperialist monster.

The U.S. Federal Government now seeks to impose its anti-Christian worldview on the entire world.

The United States is a tyranny.”
The Declaration of Independence says
patriots have a duty to abolish tyrannical governments.
The U.S. federal government exercises domestic tyranny over the American People, who are considered the "enemies" by the government.

Every single person who signed The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution (1787) would take immediate steps to repeal the Constitution and abolish the government it created.

You do nothing of the sort. "Where's the TV remote?" you say.

A True American Accepts 
His Duty to Abolish Tyranny

The Declaration of Independence says we have a "duty" to "abolish" any government that becomes a threat to the unalienable rights with which we were endowed by our Creator. We have for too long neglected that duty. The United States denies the existence of the Creator, and is the largest threat to the rights of billions of human beings around the world. Without muskets or violence of any kind, the United States must be abolished. You are not a "good American" if you disagree. You show no respect to America's Founders if you disagree. (Or, you are a victim of educational malpractice.)

"But," you reply, "while the Declaration of Independence may speak of abolishing governments which have become tyrannical, the Framers of that document would not agree with abolishing all governments."

That may be true. But if America's Founders could travel through time to our day, they would see that "government" is as obsolete a concept as "the divine right of kings" was in their day. They would reach this conclusion based on the education they received in their day (which you have not received in yours), combined with the obvious lessons of history, reflected in the devolution of the government they created into the most evil, anti-Christian empire in history.

They would see the triumph of Capitalism and the failure of socialism. They would project recent advances into the future and connect the dots.

America's Founding Fathers would abolish the government they created, and not create another one to replace it. You need the education they had to recognize this. (And giving mass numbers of Americans this education is the only way our Founding Fathers would be able to abolish this government non-violently.)

You Are the Problem

Imagine having a conversation with one of those who risked "our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor" against a limited, Christian government like Great Britain in 1776. They travel through time and discover a New United States, which can only be described as "the enemy of mankind."

What would they say about you? What would they say about the risks you take against this atheistic tyranny?

They would say you are:    

  • A pathetic American, or not a real American at all
  • A Christian-in-name-only, who makes Jesus puke
  • A waste of awesome human potential

You are one of the wealthiest human beings in the history of the human race, richer than billions of human beings both now and in centuries past.
You have the power to effect unimaginable change for good around the world. If Church-going Americans like you were to actually tithe (instead of giving less than one-quarter of a tithe),

there would be enough private Christian dollars to provide basic health care and education to all the poor of the earth. And we would still have an extra $60-70 billion left over for evangelism around the world.” Source | More

But you are self-indulgent and ungrateful.
America's Declaration of Independence says you have the right to "abolish" your government if it becomes a "tyranny." Not just a "right," it says you have a "duty" to do so. America's Founders discharged this duty, and abolished the government over the American colonies. They said their government was a "tyranny."

Then Now
Their government was an explicitly Christian government. Your government is aggressively atheistic, purging Christian influence from the public square.
The tax on tea (that ignited the "Boston Tea Party") was three pence per pound of tea. You pay ten times as much in taxes for every gallon of gas as Americans in 1776 paid on tea. 20x more overall.
Great Britain did not have "weapons of mass destruction." Your government is the most evil and the most dangerous government on planet earth.
(There are other governments that might be more "evil," but they have less power to be dangerous.) The U.S. gave "weapons of mass destruction" to Saddam Hussein.
Sexual deviancy and perversion were not "out of the closet" under British rule. Your government enslaves poor countries in debt, and promotes homosexuality and abortion as a condition of debt repayment.
     Your country once exported Bibles and missionaries around the world, but today is the world's largest exporter of weapons and pornography.
British colonies went on to become somewhat more civilized than they were before. The "Red Coats" were teddy bears compared to U.S. "peacekeepers." You said nothing (at best) or cheered (at worst) when your government spent trillions of dollars to destroy the largest Christian community in the Arab world, violently overthrew a Christian-tolerant government and replaced it with an Islamic Theocracy under Shariah law.

The United States is destroying Christian civilization and leaving chaos, death and destruction wherever its soldiers tread.

Britain was a nominally-Christian hereditary monarchy. The Constitution is dead meat. You consistently vote for the same old people (Kennedys, Bushes and Clintons) to do horrifyingly evil things, over and over. As a result, we no longer live in a constitutional "republic," but under an "Administrative State."
Every 17 year-old in America in 1776 would look at you and your nation in astonished horror, to see a person of such ignorance and bad character blithely ignore such evil, violence, atheism, and perversion. Enroll Now.

America's Founders would say you are not "the salt of the earth," and a "light to the world." You are not a "City upon a Hill." This is because you haven't connected the dots and become a Bible-believing Christian Anarchist.

if the salt has lost its savor, how shall it be salted? it is thereafter good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Matthew 5:13

     If you're like most Americans, you believe the Old Testament is filled with violence and slavery, and cannot be a model for any civilized society today.
     On the other hand, you've heard that the Jesus of the New Testament was a hippie pacifist wimp, whose advice is totally "unrealistic," "impractical" and "utopian," and cannot possibly be taken seriously in the modern world.
     And that means the entire Bible is brushed aside. You look at the world through glasses which are tinted with propaganda that the Bible is irrelevant and archaic. That "archists" are best qualified to manage your life, and the schools and businesses which make up our society.
     You are a victim of atheistic educational malpractice.
     Our one-year program will get you salty enough to deal with a "post-Christian world." We believe the Bible is a "textbook" of political reform.

The Second Reason You're Going to Lose this Bet.

Yes, of course, we understand that you are shocked at the idea of becoming an "anarchist." Our goal is to make you a better student of the Bible, which will result in you becoming an anarchist.

We are completely aware that you, like all Americans, were raised to believe that "anarchists" are bad people. You have been trained in government-approved schools to believe that you should never want to be an "anarchist." You were also brainwashed into believing that those who "protect" us from those nasty "anarchists" are the Good Guys.

What is an "archist?" Repeat after me:

An "archist" is someone who believes he has the right to impose his will on others by force.

It's a simple concept. But a profound "paradigm shift."

An "anarchist" is not an archist. An anarchist does not believe he has the right to impose his will on other people by force, like a king or ruler. The anarchist does not believe you have the right to impose your will on other people by force. Even if you call yourself "the government." Even if you can get all your friends to call you "the government."

This is in fact what Jesus taught.

In addition to being a victim of educational malpractice, you are a victim of archist brainwashing. You now believe your captors and oppressors are your friends. You are shocked and offended at "anarchism" - the idea of abolishing "the government." This shows that your moral sensibilities are fried.

This is your brain on archism.

Many great minds were shocked and offended by men like Thomas Jefferson, who repudiated the widely-held doctrine of "the Divine Right of Kings."

How could a nation survive without a king? Who would lead the nation? It would be like a headless horseman! Dangerous ideas, Mr. Jefferson!

Even some of America's Founding Fathers were scandalized by the idea of a government with no king. Benjamin Rush, who signed the Declaration of Independence, spoke of his own "Copernican revolution":

Never before had I heard the authority of kings called in question. I had been taught to consider them nearly as essential to political order as the sun is to the order of our solar system.

Tremendous progress was made in the direction of liberty and self-government by those who questioned the status quo and limited the State.

But in 200 years, no more progress has been made. Too many Americans believe that they profit from the status quo; they are morally incapable of questioning it. In fact, no serious student of Christianity and American history can deny that we have regressed. We have suffered a significant loss in liberty and virtue. America's Founders would be shocked. Horrified.

It's time for another Copernican revolution.

Not only can we have a virtuous, orderly, peaceful, and prosperous society without a someone claiming a "divine right" to be "king," we can have a Godly society without "the State" in any form.

You're shocked at that suggestion, because you have fallen hook, line and sinker for The Biggest Government Lie in the history of the human race. The Big Lie is this:

"Anarchists" are the Bad Guys.
Those who oppose anarchists are the Good Guys.

As we saw above, those who oppose an-archists are, logically (or etymologically), "archists."

You've never heard the word "archist" before.

Put on your thinking cap.

We want to convince you that "archists" are the bad guys, and "anarchists" are the good guys,  .

This may be an insurmountable hurdle, because you've been brainwashed by compulsory "archist" mis-education.

You might be saying,

"Wait a minute. You can't trick me. Everybody knows anarchists are the bad guys. Where did you get this word "archist," anyway?

Answer: From the Bible.

I try to get everything from the Bible.

This is not a trick. This is not a word-game. This is a fundamental principle of Christian ethics. This is a life-changing moral issue.

We're talking Christian Morality 101.

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10, Jesus discovers His disciples arguing about who is going to be the "greatest" in the Kingdom of God.

They didn't understand that Jesus' Kingdom was quite unlike the kingdoms of the world.

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. {44} And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our English word "anarchist."

"Lords," "rulers" and "great ones" are "archists."

Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists." They are to be "servants."

Jesus did not tell His disciples to impose Christianity on the world by force.

From cover to cover, the Bible frowns on "archists." Because we're victims of educational malpractice, we miss this central point in the Bible. We don't see that in the Bible, "archists" are the bad guys.
    • We give them parades.
    • Our country is so great, we are told, that any child
      can grow up to be an "archist."
Being an "archist" means you can
    • steal ("tax," "eminent domain," "asset forfeiture"),
    • kidnap ("conscript," "incarcerate"), or
    • murder ("bold foreign policy," "capital punishment")
and still be lauded by society. A father, a school teacher, or a CEO in the "private sector" could never commit these evils, because they are not elected "archists."

Jesus says "archists" are not to be looked up to. We are to be "servants." We are to be pacifists. We are to be non-archists. If you go "back to school" with us for one year, you'll agree, or we'll pay you $1,000.00

For two thousand years, everyone -- Christian and non-Christian alike -- has recognized that Jesus taught pacifism. People with years of secular education, positions in power, or possessing property, have latched on to theories, rationalizations, and slogans to set aside the ethics of "Love your enemy" in favor of institutionalized vengeance.

Every year in America, "private sector" murderers kill 10-20,000 people. But during my lifetime, the United States government has killed, crippled, or made homeless TENS OF MILLIONS of innocent non-combatant civilians around the world.

And as governments steal, kill, and kidnap on a public scale that vastly exceeds "private" crime, governments also prohibit public schools from teaching children the most basic standards of Biblical morality. Governments are threatened by Christianity. Therefore they frown on teaching it in government-run schools.

The Government is the cause, not the solution, to crime.

Some worry that crime would "take over" if pacifists had their way. Crime has already taken over. It's called "government." That's not just an empty-headed "anarchist" slogan. It is an overwhelming statistical fact. If pacifism (a moral rejection of violence) were to spread through society, both crime and "government" would be reduced. Pacifists oppose theft. That means pacifists oppose "government." The amount of crime that would remain after pacifists abolish government (and, it goes without saying, the creation of paradise itself would not eliminate all crime) would be less costly than the price tag for Fortress America.

In 1994 "criminals" committed 7,885 bank robberies, taking $28 million. That same year, "government agencies" seized $2.1 Billion in "asset forfeiture proceedings," often without "probable cause," and often not returned when innocence was proven. Theft by any other name . . . would be called "taxation." The government steals 2/3 of everything you earn. Inflation steals from your future. "Criminals" cannot compete with the legalized, systematic plunder of "governments."

If government were to be abolished because of the society-wide spread of pacifist ideas, including education, the social costs of theft (by all thieves, private and public) would be reduced substantially. Your standard of living would be raised if government were abolished by a pacifist majority. (A scenario completely different from government being abolished by a criminal majority, a scenario without historical precedent. Criminals don't abolish the government, they take it over.)

This seems obvious to pacifists, but it can't be obvious to the person who is completely unwilling to look at the facts.

Frequently Asked Questions

No.1:  A burglar just broke into my home and stole my TV, but I live in a stateless society. If there's no "government," will the burglar just be free to steal forever?

Under today's government, the criminal who steals your TV is less likely to be incarcerated by the government for burglary than your next door neighbor is for possessing an illegal plant.

Part of the reason is that tracking down a violent offender costs the government more money and is more risky than tracking down peaceful people with illegal flora. The government is a monopoly of Keystone Cops without competition at best, and a menacing militarized threat to civilization at worst.

Further, government's mandatory sentencing against users of illegal plants crowds prisons with non-violent people resulting in release of violent offenders.

Why We Need Prison Reform: Victimless Crimes Are 86% of the Federal Prison Population

Regardless, if a criminal just stole your TV, why would you want a "government" stealing more from you to give the criminal "three hots and a cot" plus weightlifting equipment and color TV?  Capitalist solutions to crime won't steal more from victims to incarcerate their offenders. Capitalist solutions will provide powerful incentives to criminals to make restitution to their victims.

In a stateless society, entrepreneurs and capitalists will see that there is market demand for the apprehension of criminals. Insurance companies will be interested in recovering stolen property rather than paying out claims. Evangelistic groups will be interested in turning criminals into productive members of society. There is profit to be made, and charitable works to be funded.

Yes, crimes will be committed in a stateless society. But the cost of private crime is much less than the cost of government crimes. And under capitalism, innovative and market-tested solutions to crime will replace ineffective and counter-productive government anti-crime measures.

Capitalism has shown that the vast majority of human beings cooperate in order to prosper. Only a small minority steal for a living. Honest folks who want to avoid being stolen from, or recover stolen property, will cooperate together using non-coercive market forces to create networks and infrastructure to deal with criminals, just as capitalism has dealt with all other human problems (food, clothing, shelter, etc.).

The Bible never says that a coercive non-voluntary monopoly called "the government" is the only Godly way to respond to the problem of crime, any more than the Bible says a coercive non-voluntary monopoly called "the government" is the only Godly way to respond to the problem of disease and sickness, or hunger and nakedness. Liberty allows entrepreneurs to solve human problems -- and make a profit.

If your church group went on a missions trip to Haiti, but your plane got off course and landed on an uncharted island, and you concluded that you would never be rescued, how would you deal with crime? Would you set up a "State?" No, you already have a "church," and that's all you need to deal with crime. See how Matthew 18 can be applied in an anarcho-capitalist society:

Here are three books which map out capitalist solutions to crime.

Prof. Bruce Benson has studied the history of cooperative responses to crime, as well as present alternatives:

Further studies on crime:

A government monopoly of violence is never the best solution to any human problem.

We've been trained to believe that if we don't give the government half of everything we earn, year after year, that criminals will steal from us. But they will only steal a tiny fraction of the amount the government takes from us. And a society which has Godly schools, has less crime, and without "the government," there is no public model of successful criminals -- people who get rich by resorting to force and violence ("the State").

There are answers to all these questions, if you sincerely want answers. Some people are closed-minded and ask questions which are actually arguments or denials in the form of questions. Such people will not gain maximum results from this program.

Two Hypothetical Scenarios:
How "Government" Gets Abolished

  1. The moral sensitivities of a majority of Americans are raised to the point where they oppose all theft and vengeance, become pacifists, and abolish "the government."
  2. The moral sensitivities of a majority of Americans are lowered to the point where they do not oppose theft and violence.
    1. One might think at this point that the criminal majority would abolish "the government."
    2. That is not the case.
      The criminal majority elects the government.
      The candidate says, "Vote for me, and I'll give you a piece of the action."
      The entitlement society is organized plunder. Violations of Biblical monetary policy redistribute wealth away from the poor, the elderly and the next generation.

The Government wants you to believe that the government creates rights, law, and order, and without the government, there would be "anarchy."

Abolishing an atheistic "government" does not threaten rights, law, and order. It is the most important thing Christians can do to establish and preserve law and order.

You might say, "Abolish an atheistic government, sure; but let's put "Christian" archists in their place, rather than have anarchy."

We had a "Christian" government. It failed. It had to fail because "Power corrupts" -- which means "government corrupts." A "Christian government" is like a "Christian cancer." A genuine Christian obeys the command of Jesus not to be an archist.

If America's Founders could travel through time and see what has happened to the Christian government they created -- how "capitalism" has triumphed and "government" has failed on a massive and lethal scale -- and if they were to enroll in our program of Biblical Anarcho-Capitalism, they would agree that human beings do not need kings or coercive tax-funded institutions of any kind.

* Did the Supreme Court really "ban the Bible" from public schools?

Public school students can certainly be taught that the Bible exists. But they cannot be taught that it is true, and that it is a "sacred" book because it is the Word of God. In other words, the Court banned the teaching of the Bible as the Bible would be taught by those who wrote it. The Court also banned the Bible as the Supreme Court ruled 150 years earlier it "must" be taught.

An 1844 U.S. Supreme Court case involved a wealthy Frenchman who left a large sum of money in his will to the City of Philadelphia to build a school in which no clergy would teach. (Virtually all schools back then were run by churches or Christian organizations and clergy often taught the classes Mon-Fri.) There was a great controversy over whether the will of this obviously deistic Frenchman should be enforced. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that just because clergy couldn't teach, didn't mean that lay teachers could not continue to teach the Bible as the Word of God in a school administered by the city government. In fact, the Court said -- and the City of Philadelphia enthusiastically agreed -- that teachers "must" teach Christianity and the Bible as a "divine revelation" and a "sacred volume." Here are the words of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1844:

But the objection itself assumes the proposition that Christianity is not to be taught, because ecclesiastics [clergy] are not to be instructors or officers. But this is by no means a necessary or legitimate inference from the premises. Why may not laymen instruct in the general principles of Christianity as well as ecclesiastics. There is no restriction as to the religious opinions of the instructors and officers. They may be, and doubtless, under the auspices of the city government, they will always be, men, not only distinguished for learning and talent, but for piety and elevated virtue, and holy lives and characters. And we cannot overlook the blessings, which such men by their conduct, as well as their instructions, may, nay must impart to their youthful pupils. Why may not the Bible, and especially the New Testament, without note or comment, be read and taught as a divine revelation in the college -- its general precepts expounded, its evidences explained, and its glorious principles of morality inculcated? What is there to prevent a work, not sectarian, upon the general evidences of Christianity, from being read and taught in the college by lay-teachers? Certainly there is nothing in the will, that proscribes such studies. Above all, the testator positively enjoins, "that all the instructors and teachers in the college shall take pains to instil into the minds of the scholars the purest principles of morality, so that on their entrance into active life they may from inclination and habit evince benevolence towards their fellow-creatures, and a love of truth, sobriety, and industry, adopting at the same time such religious tenets as their matured reason may enable them to prefer." Now, it may well be asked, what is there in all this, which is positively enjoined, inconsistent with the spirit or truths of Christianity? Are not these truths all taught by Christianity, although it teaches much more? Where can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament? Where are benevolence, the love of truth, sobriety, and industry, so powerfully and irresistibly inculcated as in the sacred volume? The testator has not said how these great principles are to be taught, or by whom, except it be by laymen, nor what books are to be used to explain or enforce them. All that we can gather from his language is, that he desired to exclude sectarians and sectarianism from the college, leaving the instructors and officers free to teach the purest morality, the love of truth, sobriety, and industry, by all appropriate means; and of course including the best, the surest, and the most impressive.

There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution which forced the Supreme Court in the early 1960's to repudiate Christianity and remove the Bible "as a divine revelation" from public schools.
