Shameless Self-promotion Sunday

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 13 years ago, in 2009, on the World Wide Web.

Happy Sunday, everyone. Let’s get some Shamelessness in the house.

    I’ve been thinking and blogging, perhaps too much, about health care. It has frustrated me that so much of the discussion among anti-statists has been negative in nature, with too little attempt to articulate positive alternatives. It’s also frustrated me that the positive alternatives offered have largely—albeit not entirely—ignored the vital role of professional licensing cartels, hospital accreditation, and IP in driving prices up. And it’s positively annoyed me that Hoppe’s discussion of these matters, which does address some of the issues that seem important to me, concludes with a call to eliminate tax-funded public assistance, without addressing—at least in any obvious way—the need to make structural changes that will boost the incomes of poor people and for communities to take care of vulnerable members. So I wrote, and have been updating, this essay.

    English translation of an interview with me in a popular Slovak magazine, in which I get to say:

    “In its political, governmental essence, the USA appears to be a criminal organization. I don’t want to be connected with it in any way. I’m not against supporting society, but I am against taxes, which the state criminally demands of me from birth, and I don’t want to support others’ privileges. For me, ridding myself of citizenship was a way to bring my legal and social status into harmony with my beliefs. Perhaps later I will apply for Slovak citizenship, but that will be only for practical reasons, so that I can travel. I don’t want to have any sort of connection with the criminal organization known as the state.”
