    I came to this question while I was thinking about the big margins of freedom of speech we have in this forum. There are almost no authorities, no ethics and no crimes, and yet this site is working more or less efficiently. I recall that Ricey once said that EDF was an example of true libertarianism so, what do you think? Is EDF the libertarian utopia coming true? And whats more important: Do you think this model could be adapted to real life?

    I am not sure, but it is a goddamn fine place to be. Could this system work in real life? Honestly its difficult to say. The internet affords one the ability to say and do whatever one pleases without much consequence. Obviously this very different from reality because, if you were to call someone a gay nigger, they might be so offended that they go on a rampage on over 30 countries. A good example would be the fine gentleman, Christopher Dorner, who was so offended by the corruption surrounding his hefty body, that he tried to internet tough guy real life.

    I don't think so

    It's pretty easy to ignore virtual threats and develope a thick skin upon purely conceptual violence, like it's always OTI.

    Face to face, with the zillions of years of evolution triggering the flee/fight instinctual responses just from body languaje, it's much, much more difficult

    EDF is an example of what happens when you put PC bullshit aside.

    Unfortunately, that's never going to happen IRL, as there are entire industries that have developed around PC & OH&S bullshit, and they will lobby hard to protect their public teat access.

    Cunts.

    Ricey for World President.

    Based on your YB pic, I'd guess that your co-workers are scared that if they say anything, you and your romper stomper mates will come to their house at night and hack them to pieces with axes.

    That's an illusion. Both about there being no authority/crime and also about the site working efficiently.

    How do you know this?

    Also, the real life equivalent of ED would be an insane asylum with no guards. It would be fun, but I have my doubts as to how efficiently it would work. Insane asylums are bad enough even when there are enough guards and padded cells to go around. Trust me, I know. But it would be fun.
