This has to be noted as a self-nomination, as I have worked extensively on this article. However I think it has developed very well over the past few months from something that badly needed cleanup to an article that I think gives a novice a clear understanding of the subject, and the controversies surrounding it. It also (and I may be asking for trouble by saying this) seems to have managed to ascend from the mire of the constant Anacp/Anarchist edit conflicts and present things in a neutral manner that both sides seem to agree on.

As a side note, the two vector images can be easily reproduced. Phils 10:10, 15 July 2005 (UTC)
First image replaced with Image:Ancap chart.JPG with clear copyright info. Saswann 19:27, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
2nd image commented out. Saswann 19:30, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
Spooner died in 1887, over 100 years ago, since the photo was taken during his lifetime, I think it's clear its a PD image(?) Saswann 19:33, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
Obviously. It's too old to by copyrighted. RJII 19:20, 8 August 2005 (UTC)
  1. Object, It's stil very POV. For instance it missrepresents anarchism (all the talk in Talk:Anarchism shows that), but has been improved. You also have to get very deep into the article to learn that "Anarcho-capitalism is a radical development of liberalism." // Liftarn
pulled the "radical development of liberalism" into the lead section. However, I am unsure how the article misrepresents anarchism-- aside from showing Ancap belief that apparently "misrepresents anarchism." Saswann 12:10, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
What's your point? If something is a development of liberalism it can't be anarchism? American individualist anarchism is a radical development of liberalism as well. RJII 19:20, 8 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Support, very comprehensive. One can tell tons of work was put into this article. When I enjoy reading an article and gain a good understanding of the topic, and other issues like pictures and things are cleared up, it gets my vote. Well done. Phoenix2 17:06, July 15, 2005 (UTC)
  • Object, I'm still finding very basic NPOV problems, spelling errors, and even factual inaccuracies even today, which I'm amazed the other editors failed to notice. Further, this article is a controversial one that has been the subject of many edit wars, so I'm not convinced of its chances for on-going stability. Kev 20:25, 17 July 2005 (UTC)
