I know this doesn’t fit into the “logic” forums well, but it was a response I received directly relating to Prof. Casey’s video with Prof. Woods about Ireland and its Stateless history. This was the response;
I guess it depends on what you mean by state. Early Ireland had a feudal, monarchist society. Ireland had many kingdoms rise and fall in the period referred to as stateless.
There were powerful kings such as Brian Boru. Church law existed. Ireland was invaded (Norsemen, English, Normans) with the invaders exercising control.
He also seemed to say the Roman Republic wasn’t a state.
This is what I mean about the libertarians/Austrians. The above facts don’t fit the narrative so those things are just ignored or deemed not to be “states”.
I am unsure if he is correct. Thoughts?
