Guess so! Since no one is willing to return what was taken.

What makes you think under statelessness everyone would be stealing everyone else's stuff? If you touch my lake house I'll hire someone to merce your ass. If you touch my lawn I'll send my guard dogs on you. Protection of property is easier in a stateless society. It's the state which steals most property through eminent domain.

Because the mercs you might hire will realize its much more simple just to kill you and take what you have.
Don't believe me? The Zetas were trained to work with the DEA against druglords. First the druglords offer them more than the government... then they realized that they could just take the place of the druglords.

No, not really. What makes you think a state is any better at controlling its dogs than private firms and individuals? We already know that the government is a rather incompetent manager.

You must also think that businesses will always cheat their customers in a free market, right? Because that is obviously the way to make the most money.

The question was rhetorical.
And this was about hiring mercs. If a POs pay was directly attributed to his/her actions... definately would get a negative response.

I know, I was just having a little fun.

I know you were talking about mercs, so was I. Mercs under private control vs mercs/police/military under public control.

PO = Police officer?

If so, why can the state enforce negative feedback and a private entity can't?

Amongst the private entity... upward mobility and the rewards that go with it are often removal of superiors.
Our current system usually sees corruption, but not as unlimited.

^gibberish.

Please explain in plain language.

I also think you are using the ellipsis... wrong...  :-\
Are you conveying a pause in thought, uncertainty, or a missing word? I don't think so.

Anyway, upward mobility exists in both private and public realms. So why is its downfall only apparent in the private realm?
