Introduction to Agorism

Agorism is a political philosophy based on the belief that everything in society should be voluntary, a free market.  Agorists believe that government is a coercive monopoly that shouldn't exist.   Now, this is a hefty charge, - and raises skepticism across the political spectrum. Governments affect everyone, whether it be government managed roads, healthcare, courts, the postal service, public education, regulations, subsidies, taxes, police, fire departments, etc.

The Agorist argues against these services being government controlled on both moral and utilitarian levels.
