<H1>Appendix : Anarchism and "anarcho"-capitalism </h1>
<p>
This appendix exists for one reason, namely to explain why the the idea
of "anarcho"-capitalism is a bogus one. While we have covered this topic
in some detail in <a href="secFcon.html">section F</a>, we thought that this appendix should be
created in order to update and bring together our critique of <A HREF="http://www.gmu.edu/departments/economics/bcaplan/anarfaq.htm">
Bryan Caplan's 
"Anarchist Theory FAQ."</a> Caplan's FAQ is the main on-line attempt to give the
oxymoron of "anarcho"-capitalism some form of justification and so it is
worthwhile explaining, using his FAQ as the base, why such an attempt fails.
<p>
As we will prove, Caplan's FAQ fails in its attempt to prove that "anarcho"
capitalism can be considered as part of the anarchist movement and in fact his 
account involves extensive re-writing of history. This appendix is in two 
parts, a reply to Caplan's most recent FAQ release (version 5.2) and an 
older reply to version 4.1.1 (which was originally section F.10 of the FAQ).
The <a href="append12.html">introduction</a> to the reply to version 4.1.1 indicates what most anarchists
think of Caplan's FAQ and its claims of "objectivity" as so we will not
repeat ourselves here.
<p>
We have decided to include these replies in an appendix as they are really
an addition to the main body of the FAQ. Parties interested in why Caplan's
claims are false can explore this appendix, those who are interested in 
anarchist politics can read the FAQ without having to also read on-line 
arguments between anarchists and capitalists. 
<p>
We should, perhaps, thank Caplan for allowing us an opportunity of explaining
the ideas of such people as Proudhon and Tucker, allowing us to quote them
and so bring their ideas to a wider audience and for indicating that
anarchism, in all its forms, has always opposed capitalism and always will.
