On a second thought: I think you'll need a bit context to understand my reasoning: I'm currently listing to a lot of political podcasts from the US. Especially Rubin Report and Ben Shapiros podcasts. Both are self proclaimed old-school liberals which lean to the anarcho-capitalist side.

Being exposed to this - at least to me - alien way of thinking changed my own opinion. In some cases I left some dogmas behind me, in some cases I developed an even stronger urge to oppose free-market laissez faire capitalism.

The reason is: As soon as you start talking the ideas seriously, you have to mind the extremes. So I was thinking about how you can stay true and sound to the ideology and its philosophy and come up with strange ideas.

So, seeing this post, posted under the category "Anarcho Capitalism" made me think how this strange ideas and the overall philosophy are connected.

At least to me, it was obvious how and why that renders the idea that 100% pure anarcho capitalism is something good absurd.

We need better models of how people and societies functions, which led to the other topic about the humanities ...

I'm not complaining about this guy. I don't care.

The point is: There are people who honestly think like that because it fits their narrative of how people think and work. (Even if most of them are not as honest and use such absurd examples.)

This is tightly coupled to their anarcho-capitalistic view of how free markets should work and how people operate in them.

My critic lays its finger on the completely misperception of how people think and act in reality - which is in that case at least partly induced by the American anarcho-capitalistic ideology. Why? Because it's a perfectly sound view in that context.

The whole ideology is already fucked up - not only this strange person.

That happens if you think everything happens completely for personal gain and the homo economicus is a proper 1:1 model of human beings.

That's why we need the humanities btw.

TU WebVPN for any website

This shell script will allow you to open any website (not just the TU library) with webvpn, e.g. google scholar or IEEE Xplore. Thus, giving you access to more papers and databases from anywhere. (TU Vienna account required)
#!/bin/bash
if [ -z $1 ] ; then
	read -p "URL for webvpn: " URL
else
	URL=$1
fi
HOST=`echo "$URL" | cut -d / -f 1-3`
FILE=/${URL#*//*/}
echo -n 'https://webvpn.tuwien.ac.at/+CSCO+0h'
echo -n $HOST | tr a-zA-Z n-za-mN-ZA-M | hexdump -e '8/1 "%02X"' | tr -d ' \t'
echo '++'"$FILE"
And yes: they use simple rot13+hex to encode the URL!
