There can be no liberty in India, when the Indian State does not entertain itself with minarchial thoughts. I am not favouring minarchy here, but convincing the hypocritical nature of the Indian State which […]

An acceptable governance model is slowly developing these days in the form of Facebook, Google+, and other polite and sensible social-media-website oligarchies. You must sign in to participate, abide by the rules, which are mostly commonsense if not overly simplified and follow the be-good-or-be-banished rule (read the legalese if in doubt). Bad folks don’t last long on Facebook; they wind up on My Space.

Facing ostraciziation (from Gr. exostrakízo̱)or public banishment in our social milieu is a worst possible fate. The ancient Greeks used ostraka, which were shells or bits of pottery shards upon which they wrote the name of the offender; at the trial a count of too many ostrako spelled doom for the accused.

Minarchism is in keeping with liberal tradition and has won particular favour amongst libertarians.”

I stopped reading after these first two sentences because the first one is entirely and grossly contradicted by the second.
