"Anarcho-capitalism (also known as “libertarian anarchy” or “market anarchism” or “free market anarchism”) is a libertarian and individualistanarchist political philosophy that advocates the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty in a free market."

"Georgism, also called geoism and single tax (archaic), is an economic philosophy holding that, while people should own the value they produce themselves, economic value derived from land (including natural resources and natural opportunities) should belong equally to all members of society."

I accept. Looking forward to an interesting debate.
Debate Round No. 1


My opening state will short and to the point Anarcho-Capitalism is easier to understand.


To mirror the length of my opponent's opening statement, I wil try tol stay concise (but no promises). While anarcho-capitalism may be easier to understand, in no way does that make it the better ideology. First, because my opponent has given no framework, I will provide Contactualism as a means of judgement. Contractualism finds that under the Social Contact created by Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, the state that provides best for its people is the best. Georgism allows for better prosperity for the people by guaranteeing resources and thus survival, which ties in to the Social Contact. In addition, Georgism allows for government protection of its people, which guarantees their safety and thus again links in to the Social Contract. I urge my judges to consider actual benefit to the people of a nation more important than its simplicity causing a lack thereof.
