Ancapfreethinker.info is a website that exists in order to organize people who identify with the following ideals to action in order to achieve common goals and to improve our quality of life. It also serves as a philosophical outlet.


Ancap stands for Anarcho-Capitalist.

By using this term we mean the following:


Anarchism- ‘Anarcho’

One who is a proponent of anarchism is an anarchist.

The theory or doctrine that all forms of government are oppressive and undesirable and should be abolished or

Rejection of all forms of coercive control and authority

Capitalism- ‘Capitalist’

One who is a proponent of capitalism is a capitalist.

An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or company owned and development is proportionate to the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a free market.

Anarcho-Capitalism as defined by us is:


A philosophy that rejects the validity of involuntary hierarchy, rulers, and fees (such as taxes) in favor of a system of private ownership of property and the free exchange of goods and services. This also implies that security, arbitration, defense, and other things the State has a monopoly on are classified as services or products, and will therefore be provided for by the market.


Free Thinker:

Free thinking is a philosophy that emphasizes the use of logic, reason, and evidence to form opinions. People who follow that philosophy are known as Free Thinkers.

Free thought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The cognitive application of free thought is known as “freethinking,” and practitioners of free thought are known as “freethinkers.”

Free thought holds that individuals should not accept ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts, scientific inquiry, and logical principles, independent of any logical fallacies or the intellectually limiting effects of authority, confirmation bias, cognitive bias, conventional wisdom, popular culture, prejudice, sectarianism, tradition, urban legend, and all other dogmas. Regarding religion, freethinkers hold that there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena.

-Wikipedia article on Free Thought

This definition is adequate except that the only dogma I hold to is the dogma of freedom, self-determination, and free market business regardless of what the enemies of these things might say. Let me be clear, I am biased against ideologies that suggest that other people should control me or have a right to my property.


This is a place for Anarcho-Capitalists who are also free thinkers, which may include atheists, non-theists, skeptics, and other people who subject new beliefs to the rigors of reason and evidence.

One of our goals is to achieve, for the members who choose to become part of this community, freedom as defined rather well by Lew Rockwell.


“A social or political condition  in which people exercise their own choices concerning what they do with their lives and property. People are permitted to trade and exchange goods and services without impediment or violent interference. They can associate or not associate with anyone of their own choosing. They can arrange their own lives and businesses. They can build, move, innovate, save invest, consume, on terms that they themselves decide to follow.”

Lou Rockwell- The Misesian Vision Speech, Which can be found on Youtube.


We prefer to associate with people who have an honest, intelligent, hard working character who are not afraid to stand up for themselves.

Obviously, the term Ancapfreethinker is narrow in scope and does not include the myriad of other beliefs and positions one can hold. For example, a moral nihilist might disagree with an ancapfreethinker who thinks x or y is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ objectively.

Ideological Sameness:

People have ideological sameness when they share common values regarding activities that affect the way they interact with and view other people and the world.

A person’s worldviews may include positions on different activities such as: Education, entertainment, labor , law, politics, religion, sex, war, race, health and diet, and class among other things.

People might agree with one another on three categories, and very seriously disagree with each other on all the rest. Two people might agree on one category emphatically, and both be apathetic with regard to all other areas. Different people would rank the importance of each category differently, meaning some might think agreement on racial views are the most important whereas some might view pacifism as a stance on war as the most important element of a given world view.

People with compatible worldviews, have views that when compared, do not contradict each other in a mutually exclusive way in any of these categories. The views being compared agree on some points completely, and are either neutral on all other categories or brand disagreement in other categories as un-important.

And so for example, two anarcho-capitalists  that detest racism, detest religion, and support homeschooling, are apathetic on labor, entertainment, sex and war, and disagree about dietary practices, one being a straight-edge vegan and the other a smoking/drinking  omnivore, but view each other’s eating/drinking/smoking habbits as unimportant/personal could be said to enjoy some degree of ideological sameness.


We choose not to associate with the people in the following categories:

Racists, race realists, or whatever they call themselves now.


Gay Bashers


Socialists or communists (this includes traditional anarchists)


Government Workers

Religious people, Fundamentalists or otherwise

Alien Hunters

Conspiracy Theorists- I am well aware conspiracies exists, but ranting about them is not productive.
