Anarcho-Imperialism is a libertarian and culturally ambiguous ideology that is considered a means to achieve an eventual true (stateless) anarchism worldwide. A temporary limited government exists, but their only purpose is to manage a military and a surveillance agency/secret police. Government funding is collected through "voluntary taxes"; these can be actually voluntary (people pay them to support their way of life) or they can be forced (voluntary in name only). The government is therefore virtually unnoticeable in everyday life, with the average civilian living similarly to how they would under regular anarchism. The purpose of the military is to engage in aggressive imperialism against non-anarchist regions in order to spread anarchism around the world. The purpose of the secret police is to root out those who are against Anarcho-Imperialism, especially in newly-conquered land. As prisons would cost too much tax money, these dissidents are simply murdered. The goal of Anarcho-Imperialism is to spread the anarchist ideal around the world. Once this is achieved, and all non-conformists have been killed, the government would relinquish their power and true anarchism would exist.
