Much discussion is going on around the possibility of forcing people to retire at a later age due to the higher survaval rate of humans in the contemporary society. However, those who propose the raising of the age of retirement simply refuse to look at the problem in all its complexity. In the real world people donʼt die later due to some form of genetic evolution, but due to the technological progress which actually makes lowering the retirement age a better solution overall.

I think you've given up on anarchy a bit too early. Surely there are some communities that already exist where ideas such as "age of retirement" (which is a statist concept -- as an anarchist, I can work however long I feel like working) are moot? (What do you think of The Free State Project? Or Seasteading?) As for your proposals for "taxation", you cleverly limited it to statist organizations (corporations). I say "cleverly" because you'd have a lot tougher time trying to promote your idea if you wanted to force individuals to do things. As for market regulations (to enforce "fair trade"), here you are treading on far less justifiable ground. I suppose if you mean some kind of voluntary opt-in reputation system, that's a great idea. Although it wasn't clear how it would work in the podcast.
