If you can write 3,000 words on the topic in the context of the role and capabilities of corporations within one, you might just win the 2008 Chris R. Tame Memorial Prize, £1,000, and an invitation to speak to your ideas at the Libertarian Alliance Conference in London on 25 October 2008.

Your essay’s title: “Can a Libertarian Society be Described as ‘Tesco minus the State’?” (geographically-challenged readers may substitute “Wal-Mart” for “Tesco”).

Entries are due by 10 October 2008. The sole judge of the entries and the person who awards the prize will be Sean Gabb, Director of the Libertarian Alliance.

Ban Tesco? What?

Ban Tesco? What?

My personal essay follows:

Can a Libertarian Society be Described as ‘Tesco minus the State’?

No.

As you can see, I am missing some 2,999 words as well as footnotes and bibliographic material.

A slightly expanded, but ultimately no more nuanced version:

Can a Libertarian Society be Described as ‘Tesco minus the State’?

Perhaps, but not one in which right-thinking people would choose to live.

It’s still a bit light, really, but that’s the essence of it right there. Convinced yet of my thesis?

And finally, my actual contest entry…

Wait… “File Not Found”? What????!

Seriously now, heavy cogitation desired here. I’m off to go think.

    Right-thinking people choose to live Tesco and the State in case you are interested.

    I don’t know about Tesco, but no Merrill fucking Lynch in free country of my dreams, that’s for sure.
