mrshowrules: is an ideal of the greedy and self serving suggesting that left to their own, people will look after each other


hinten: Liberterianism would work just fine if everyone just followed the rules.


Pretty much nailed it in the first two.

It's ironic that LIbertarianism - which is the polar opposite of Communism - has so much in common with it, especially in it's failings.

- Both are naive, utopanist philosophies that are superficially appealing but can't function in the real world at a national scale
- Both are unworkable because they ignore or deny basic human psychology
- Both have been co-opted and transformed into something downright evil (Communism -> Stalinism, Libertarinism -> objectivism / neo-confederatism)

Communism is "we're all in this together" taken to ridiculous extremes.
Libertarianism is "what's yours is yours and what's mine is mine" taken to ridiculous extremes.

kronicfeld: I wonder how the Christianist libertarians at NRO reconcile their belief in anarchy limited government with all of God's price-fixing and commercial regulation in the Bible.


I'm not a very good Christian so I'm not sure what many of them believe but there is plenty of evidence that God isn't too much of a Big Government friend.
1 Samuel 8New International Version (NIV)


10Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. 11He said, "This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day."
19But the people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We want a king over us.

Garble: Thomas Jefferson specifically turned "Life, Liberty and Property" into "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
That would be a burning-at-the-stake level offense to most self-identified libertarians today.

Z-clipped: Pocket Ninja: Libertarians are the atheists of the political world, in that many of them will loudly and frequently tell you they are that thing, but a very small percentage of them -- a miniscule amount, really -- actually know what being that thing means. Most of them have chosen to self-label as a reaction to something else, not out of conscious selection, and almost none of them can identify more than the most patently obvious truisms about their "chosen" belief system. They know what they've been told, or what they've read about being told, and that's about it.

Yeah, it took me YEARS of intense study to memorize all the tenets of atheism, and that's just the beginning... I'm still trying to understand the Scriptures better.


CRAP. ZORG POST BEFORE READING ALL CAVE CARVINGS.

ZORG MEAN TO SAY:

NOT BELIEVE IN SKY GOD IS JUST OTHER WAY OF BELIEVE IN SKY GOD.

Every libertarian utopia somehow revolves around people living off the land in some rural outpost.   The trouble is commerce and capitalism encourages population density.    I'd love to hear how libertarianism works in a condensed urban environment where 9 million people are forced to share a finite amount of resources and land.
