  • Ahh. It looks like the WordPress sign-in (which never works for me, anywhere) is not needed.

    • It is not needed at all for comments, only setting up a new blog entry.

      The easiest way to log in is to either:

      (a) log in from this website ( http://www.propertyrightsmatter.com/wp-login.php ) using either your username or email and password that I set up for you.

      Or (b) sync your user for PropertyRightsMatter (that I set up) with a free account from WordPress (that you can create yourself) and then you can log in from either the website above or just http://www.wordpress.com/ . For the least amount of future headaches, biting the bullet and syncing accounts now might be the best practice. From what I can tell WordPress(.com) also has a cleaner blog publishing interface than Bluehost’s dashboard does.

      I’m pretty sure you can sync the blog function with note taking/blogging services like Evernote, too, and I think I can set it up so that if you email the website in a proper format then it will turn the email into a published blog post if anyone wants that feature. I’m not sure if any of the extras are worth setting up myself.

      • When I create or edit my posts, the PROPERTY RIGHT MATTER banner and the 3 horizontal lines on the right suddenly grow to more than half the screen making it nearly impossible to do any detail editing.

        I mention this because on the Mises site and most others, this does NOT happen.

        • “When I create or edit my posts”
          Are you saying every time that you try and post or edit a comment? Is it possible to take a screen shot? I just haven’t seen this happen so I’m not sure where the problem lies.

          “I mention this because on the Mises site and most others, this does NOT happen.”
          Indeed, it shouldn’t happen here either. I haven’t been able to get it to pop up on my screen though.

      • I just ran a test on the Search function. Apparently it searches the subject text, but it does NOT search the Comments text.

        (I searched for the word justice )

      The WordPress sign-in is particularly picky and difficult. I know it’s sensitive to cookies settings.

      I was able to login to WordPress here, but can’t see where to edit existing posts. For example, if I wanted to add content to the above topic. Perhaps permissions need altering so not just the creator but all users can edit all posts.

      • I changed your user levels from contributor to editor. Let me know if that allows you to edit others’ posts — I think that’s how it is supposed to work. If not I can upgrade you to admin… and then you’d better have the necessary privileges -__-

      • Hello Coralyn. After a long hiatus I’ve changed the site’s theme and I think I’ve resolved the editing issue you had before, so anyone who’s registered on the site should be able to edit every existing Ancapedia entry as well as create new ones of their own.

        I thought I would extend the offer to keep the site open and running as-is (esp. as regards the Ancapedia) one more time before I potentially reorganize it again into a more run-of-the-mill personal web page. I like the decentralized format of the Ancapedia concept as well as the idea of working on it alongside you and our other fellow Disqus travelers. As such, I would like to try one more time to get something off the ground. If you’re still interested in working on the project please let me know, or just go right ahead and start editing or creating an Ancapedia entry. (I myself finally got around to posting an entry on the No True Statesman fallacy tonight.) Let me know if you have any problems or suggestions for the site as its still very much in its infancy.

        • Coralyn Herenschrict

          Thanks kindly. I continue to find the idea superb, but find myself stretched for time these days. With luck I’ll be able to jump in and type a few things up, but can’t say for sure.

  • Security and Justice WITHOUT government
    by Dennis Wilson

    I was recently confronted with these two fairly common objections to living without government: who would provide security from invasion and who would provide courts and justice. 

    In this article I address seven questions that were asked on a discussion board. Each of the seven questions, taken without thinking can lead to the emotional equivalent of “Oh yes, yes. We DO NEED government.” However, simple reflection and the connection of some widely known facts can put each of these concerns to rest.

    The PROPERTY RIGHTS MATTER banner takes up more than half the screen so I cannot see what I write. Doing THIS message “blind”. The first 3 lines were copy/pasted but nearly impossible to see while attempting to edit.
