Clocking in at simply over a hundred pages, An Agorist Primer deals not just a simple-but-thorough clarification of what agorism is, it additionally builds a rock-solid case for it... yet belief me, Konkin's well-structured argument for a loose society of the open market ("as as regards to untainted through robbery, attack, and fraud as should be humanly attained") is compelling.

An Agorist Primer could be a fast stroll during the fundamentals, however it by no means shortchanges the reader. And better of all, it is quite entertaining." --Wally Conger, Out of Step

Correct. And if an assumption leads to a contradiction, it is wrong. Our assumption was that you could achieve a state of ease; therefore, such a human condition is impossible. In reality, man always has reason to feel unease: to feed himself, clothe himself, shelter himself, reproduce, and feed, shelter, and clothe others, amuse himself, and so on. Unease cannot be eliminated. It can, however, be reduced. It can also, unfortunately, be augmented. If you seek to starve yourself or bore yourself, you increase your unease.
Nonetheless, most "crimes" go completely unreported and undetected, so the State's stats are an upper limit of apprehension. That is, their figures are useful as maximum risk. The highest apprehension rate for the most foul crimes seldom hit 20%, an indication of government effectiveness in maintaining public order. Is It Worth It? Suppose you wish to do something Counter-Economic. To be specific, you can buy something for $10,000 and sell it for $20,000. Your regular overhead is $5000. Your net return on investment is $5000 (on an investment of $15,000 that's 33%, extremely high) but, since there is a risk, how can you tell if the return is worth it?
It's undoubtedly easier to extend your counter-economizing when everyone else is doing it. Most people are, but in small and different ways. Still, if you could win more suppliers and customers over to your trust and get them to counter-economize, they would not only resist turning you in but they would develop a tendency not to leak secrets and would, therefore, decrease your risk and increase your payoff both ways. This fact is the driving force toward expansion of the Counter-Economy. This force is what Agorism unleashes against the State.
