Glossary Term: Consentism


A term coined by Atlanta libertarian Rich Clarke1 that he proposes replace the terms Anarcho-Capitalism and voluntarism. Clarke’s argument is that Anarcho-Capitalism makes people think of chaos and voluntarism sounds like everyone lives on a commune, while consentism need not mean any more than it implies: you must get a person’s consent if you wish to interact with him.
