Well I don't think that 2 people voting to rob a 3rd person is much of a democracy. The fact that the majority approves of something doesn't mean it's alright to trample on the liberties of the minority.

Why do you think pooling resources can only happen by force? Private investors pool their resources all the time. Do you really think the only way people will work together is at gunpoint? That's what you're advocating by the way. If I don't pay my property taxes, eventually someone with a gun will show up and force me out of my home. That's what you're pushing for, armed robbery.
Now I assume instead of addressing the injustice of forcing people to pay taxes against their will, you'll try to justify it by listing all the wonderful services they will receive in turn. It's like a robber buying me something nice with my own money and then expecting me to be grateful.
Tell me how would you survive without the support of your fellow citizens in an anarchy.
Then would they do it voluntary ?
So when you have a minority that does not like what the majority have decided then you think anarchy would resolve the problem...I don't think so.
Give me the scenario when by common consent the individual does not need to contribute...Lets say they are being attacked by a neighbouring democratic tribe? Or your grain harvest had failed and your children are dying of hunger.
Im wondering in this anarchy,
assuming your living in a community, do they ever agree on a common policy?
If they agree to defend this community can one say I don't want to?
And what response do you think they, those who chose not to fight,
would get from those who laid down their lives for the community?
We live by agreements, its essential we all stand together or our weakness prevails.
By the way big words do not make any more impact in a debate.
I think you are begining to understand the weakness of the anarchic argument . You say they make agreements one minute but then they dont. Now you decide do they or dont they
I understand the principles but the reality is far from clear..That's why I ask questions and you are not able to answer them.
Your threatened with invasion , what do you do? This question for starters....
