The Bearded Heretic is an individualist Anarchist Voluntaryist, a defender of freedom attempting to expose the illegitimacy of government, the corresponding underlying concept of authority & the supposed moral obligation to obey just because someone’s labeled a thing. Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory, and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitimacy. Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends.
