All life and all society is in fact “anarchic”, including democratic nations and governments. The big difference between the calm order of a declared anarcho-capitalist society and the semi-chaos and unpredictability of our democratic constitutional nation-state is the rule-by-whim which parliamentarians and congresses try to keep power and their cosy jobs.

About the speaker

Neville Kennard is a Sydney-based businessman, and is an ardent advocate of individual freedom, free markets, to the degree that he now thinks that people can do without [compulsory and coercive] governments altogether, and our societies will be much calmer, safer and more predictable. He was an early supporter of the Centre for Independant Studies, and its first Chairman, but now despairs of the effectiveness of think tanks, which he believes have become part of the Establishment and help to legitimise coercive government.
