You jackanapes are a disgrace.  Terrible, horrible stupidity.  Like a bunch of circle jerling monkeys, egging each other on by lobbing feces.  Congratulations on your total regression.  Join Scientology now, and give up your brain entirely.  No wonder we are doomed.  I am so glad I have chosen to not procreate and protect my progeny from this decay.

Enjoy your disgusting mud pit, you stupid dicks.

Because People in power are Stupid: hinten: Liberterianism would work just fine if everyone just followed the rules.

And if there were no such thing as information asymmetry


If only there were some sort of organization where everyone got together and agreed on the rules then set up a system to enforce those rules. This organization could also do things like check that products are safe and being made safely and step in to make financial markets more fair in order to help mitigate the harm caused by information asymmetry.

Libertarianism is to thirty-something white men as socialism is to college sophomores.

jjorsett: There's the ad hominem diversion I was waiting for. No need to evaluate and debate an idea when we can dismiss it because we don't like its proponents. Hitler was a vegetarian, so people who like lettuce are fascists, etc.

Capitalism is like a game of monopoly, everybody starts the same (let's say a new industry) and everything is neck-to-neck for a while until eventually one asshole has all of the resources.

Capitalism is inherently flawed and the only means to regulate it is via government, thus lobbyist for said companies are strongly against that.

InmanRoshi: 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.


Same as now, except without laws other than those that protect body and property.

RobertBruce: 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.

This is the crux of the issue. In a capitalist society government is essential for maximizing personal freedom.

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.


Damn.  I have honestly never heard anyone just lay it out in such a succinct way.

Hey, as an Atheist who can't stand libertarians I... agree. There does seem to be a bit less "No True Scotsmanship" lame rationalization going on among atheists though, but it's still bad enough as it is.

He was trying to 'inspire' (manipulate) the unwashed masses.  Remember, it was a revolution from the top- lawyers and wealthy landowners.  Not exactly a common event in history.
