Pro

I believe anarchism, and the teachings of Kropotkin, would be a viable form of government. Anyone who would prefer to disagree just join in.
SM2

Con

I disagree. Your turn.

Ok, do you wish to tell me why you disagree? A stateless society would be an advocate of TRUE free trade, making it so no tax or money could hold back man's potential. A peergift economy would totally get rid of the problems of corporations rising and negatively influencing the collective, henceforth supporting small businuss. Let's take a look at a ammunition factory. The factory would hire good people to work, and in return they shall take a small percentage of the product. Can you measure work?

A gift economy requires a strong code of etiquette that today's society lacks. It would need to be necessary for survival, but modern technology handles that problem already. Otherwise, it would have to be enforced, which requires a government.

In a stateless society, every town would have its own import taxes.

Factory grunts are never members; too much employee turnover. It's the bosses who get a cut, because they put money into the business.

500 character limit? WTF, dude?
