This image has been making the rounds in FB, being spread around by Paultards and other sorts of faux libertarians, and it encapsulates why their ideology is so hard for me to take seriously to the point where it just thoroughly annoys me.

Because it's based on hyperbole, naivete, and historical revisionism.  The modern libertarians are the biggest, most myopic, whiny pussies in the political spectrum.  You have to be a gigantic dick to equate the plight of Syrians, who are being systematically wiped out by their government to your perceived God-given right to own any weapon you goddamn please.  Not to mention you are not some kind of silent majority - a lot of gun-owning Americans support background checks and understand that fully automatic rifles are not hunting weapons.

Modern libertarianism is for the kind of selfish, egotistical malcontents that simply cannot stand living in any sort of communal, symbiotic society.  The kind of assholes that complain about Stop signs being Big Government's way to tell them when to move.  I'm sure there are Libertarians that are sensible, rational, and toe the balance between social liberalism and fiscal conservatism rather well, but the most vocal Libertarians, the ones that are waving the flag are just apathetic, cynical dicks who want to justify their ethical failings (social darwinism, racism, etc.) by labeling it an ideology.

worlddan: The libertarian idea is the only truly new political idea in the last couple thousand years.

Ok. I can't read the article because I cannot stop laughing at that sentence. History. bad memories. repetition. and all that.


There are quite a few more guffaw-worthy moments, if you press on.  Like this one:

Lind sees it differently. "If socialism is discredited by the failure of communist regimes in the real world, why isn't libertarianism discredited by the absence of any libertarian regimes in the real world? Communism was tried and failed. Libertarianism has never even been tried."
What an odd standard. You know what else is a complete failure? Time travel. After all, it's never succeeded anywhere!


Libertarianism is beyond our technological capability, and/or analagous to violating the laws of physics?

worlddan: Z-clipped:

hinten nailed it upthread:  Christians are the ones who constantly loudly proclaim their membership while failing to live up to the tenets of their belief system. (Which was probably the double-reverse sex panther troll that PN was going for in the first place.)

But at least Christians have a coherent belief system. It might be a childish fantasy but at least it is coherent and consistent within itself. Libertarianism is incoherent, self-contradictory, and self refuting. It is a label stuck on gibberish, of people jabbering imprecisions, it a mass of intellectual vomit, it is anti-intellectualism masquerading as a set of ideas. It is a trick, a lie, and a damnable whore.

Methinks you might want to check out the Old Testament vs the New Testament. Christianity basically takes Genesis, Ten Commandments from Exodus, skips everything else and goes right to the New Testament. Reason being all the inconsistencies within the bible. They are only "consistent" because of what they choose to ignore. Much like libertarianism.

DeArmondVI: by an invisible hand (patriotism, perhaps?),


You be trollin'.

A careful reading would tell you that Smith's invisible hand referred to market forces acting within a framework of regulations designed to 1) provide a level playing field and 2) promote economic growth that helped society as a whole. Most of The Wealth of Nations was devoted to describing the proper regulatory framework - banking, taxation, insurance, and incentives - to grow an economy in a sustainable manner.

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


Then it's true that people will only look after each other through the initiation of force...via big government. It's true that libertarians might be self serving, but who isn't!? What they truly despise are the selfish that would rather take from them, the ones that refuse to participate in the "communal stewardship of the land" yet are first to figure out a way to get their entitled share of the crop. So with respect to being self serving.. We all are. The pilgrims learned this first hand and their decision to each start their own garden and trade/share and even give to those whom might have had a bad harvest made them strong and prosper. This was of coarse after the community garden ideal failed.
