The Dogmatic Mosquito

By Bionic Mosquito

August 24, 2015

I have the sudden urge to try a new nom de plume. Let’s see how it fits.

Dogma: an official system of principles or tenets concerning faith, morals, behavior, etc.; a settled or established opinion, belief, or principle.

So far, this new identity fits pretty well. I will expand on the dogma that is in this mosquito:

1) I hold to the non-aggression principle as the only proper view regarding the use of force in society; this is based on an absolute commitment to the concept of private property.

The political philosophy that best fits my view is anarchy as described by Murray Rothbard and others who have further expanded on this tradition.

2) I support fully free markets for all transactions and relationships that are not in conflict with the non-aggression principle.

The economic school that most closely hews to a free market line is the Austrian School.

3) I believe that for a society to thrive – even survive – that governance (not government as it is known today) is required.

The concept of a society without hierarchy is bankrupt.
