Why Libertarianism Is So Dangerous...

We should emulate Thailand.

In Thailand, they have a revolution every few years and throw the bums out. The only thing that stays constant is their King who is practically the Earthly avatar of Buddha. We should do that, with our Earthly avatar of Free Will being the Constitution. We can let the empire fall, but if the Constitution survives, this will be the last empire ever.

When I'm president, I'll convert the military to search & rescue and tourist stuff. Well, what I didn't sell.

"BUT ... ROADS!!!!!" Yeah, well, I'll grant you roads, and even a Post Office and a Land Office and the parks and monuments (which could have a donations box at the front entrance), and that's pretty much it!

Rules of any kind are contrary to the Natural Order of Things.

The bugaboo, of course, is where to draw the property line. It's too bad that it's fallen all the way back to our personal skin and self-defense tool, but when are we ever going to learn the lesson that that teaches us about government in general?

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Armed Gangs

The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms would see to it that the thugs would soon find that a career in crime doesn't pay very well for very long. The incorrigible would be Darwinized in short order, and then we could realize The Mother's Dream.

And as a metaphysicist and crazy person, I believe that Anarchy is one of the first steps to achieving Eternal Life.

In fact, World Peace is the topic for my Doctor of Metaphysics degree I'm studying for at the University of Hard Knocks. I've healed all of my own fears and enough of my own denials that I've decided I'm already a master metaphysicist.

Oh, yeah - here's how I intend to achieve World Peace: http://rich_grise.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.pl

YES

Government is a militant force that occupies society in order to control and extract its wealth.

Awesome

Great video, thanks for the share

These events

are already playing out in Mexico as the drug cartels. The one thing this video does not take into consideration is the fact that these violent gangs will actually support other violent gangs in order to maintain the situation. That is what the United Nations and NATO is all about. That is going on in Mexico as well.

The people of Michoacan decided to get rid of their host drug cartel called the Knights Templar through force. The needle that broke the camels back is when this violent gang began raping all the little girls in the state. The Vigilantes then guarded their own communities to keep the drug cartel from coming back. The Mexico government then sent the military to disarm the Vigilantes. Disarming the Vigilantes will only allow the drug cartel to again take control. So one violent gang will go to support another violent gang in order to maintain the fucked up situation where racketeering of businesses is the norm and little girls get raped.

Cartels - pfaugh!

There wouldn't even be "cartels" if Da Gubmint hadn't initiated the insane war on drugs. The cartels and Da Gubmint are simply having a turf war.

Write me in in 2016: http://rich_grise.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.pl .
I'll fire the whole damn government!

Blocked Content??

I tried to watch this video here in China and of course I need to use a VPN to another country since youtube is blocked in this country. My VPN was set to Amsterdam and to my surprise I got the following message when I tried to view the video...
"This video contains content from WMG, Warner Chappel, Sony ATV Publishing, SACEM, PEDL, EMI Music Publishing and UMPI, one or more of whom have blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."
I switched my VPN to USA and was able to watch it (seen it a while back but it's great this time around too).
I thought Amsterdam would be a good place for freedom of speech but I guess that's not the case...

If there was no government,

If there was no government, there would be no one to tell me that I couldn't shoot you right between the eyes if you interrupted my freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The dangers of libertarianism wouldn't last very long.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Agreed

I see 'All government is bad' arguments as being absolutist, and without much of a practical answer to a variety of issues.

Otherwise I believe in a Dignitarian model where citizens should have the prerogative of choice concerning public domain, as well as the right to exercise their conscience and withdraw from abuse.

IMO this can be subsequently achieved through public Trusts and if found to be violating ethical agency, such prerogatives are forfeited until duly absolved.

Except...

...for me, and more importantly, my Sig Sauer.

So you could shoot me, and I could shoot you.

Or we could shake hands and profit in peace. Which one sounds more appealing?

and me

and my armaments as well.
I would help too.
We would share a common interest in keeping peace.

You don't sound like a thug

You don't sound like a thug that wants to interrupt my freedom, liberty and pursuit of happiness, so I think we would get along just fine. My point was that the government kind of enables these thugs to do what they do without much of a punishment, i.e. many can get away with it. But if the government is not there, then they are no longer protected by these laws and are not sure what they can get away with, and so they start respecting other people's right a lot more.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

Thanks

For sharing that video. Big bump
