lololol -> statetheist

Loved Larken's response, and I learned a new term: statetheist.

Resilient Larken

I'm surprised Larken Rose even bothered making a response... to... "that".

Resilience! Impressive.

Thank you Larken, but really you didn't have to!

Just IMO... Or I may be wrong, though.

How many more of them, after that one?!

Scary for me, especially in THIS country! :/

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I imagine

this douche is quite satisfied in his smug little world of government apologism. More power to you guy! Why are you making videos... your side already won!

"... your side..."

"... your side..."

Oh so true. Nail hammered, indeed.

Oh you're so right on, so far.

Sadly :/

What can we do? Here's what we cannot:

fix stupid.

Hardly ever in one's lifetime, anyway.

knowledge= responsibility...

Which is why people at low levels of Consciousness prefer to stay there.

Knocking Libertarians

The guy who made the video is a complete idiot.

Why do I bother

When a person sets up a strawman, then gleefully knocks it down, he is wasting his time and mine.

Selfish? Sure. So is he, in a sense. If he WANTS to give away all of his money, that is a selfish thing and I applaud him. If he WANTS to keep all of his money, ditto. The idea that we're only unselfish when we're forced to do what we don't want to do is just...stupid.

Anachronistic? Hardly. Certainly we make arguments and refer to history, but there is NO LIBERTARIAN ALIVE that would make the argument that things were great in some past era. STRAWMAN!

Arogant? I guess when you get your ass whupped in arguments every time you go up against a libertarian, then you might consider your whupper to be arrogant. Or maybe you should consider his point of view...

Naïve? Anyone who does a YouTube about libertarians without understanding libertarianism is the one who is naïve.

Anti-government? Guilty!! The YouTuber admits that the non-libertarian politicians are turds, yet he somehow concludes that it doesn't have to be that way. His faith in good government is touching, and childlike. I wonder if he still believes in Santa Claus?

Like I said...why do I bother? Watching stuff like this just pisses me off.

childlike?

I would say childish. The term "childlike" has positive connotations of innocence that I am loathe to ascribe to this dude.

Thanks for the summary. I don't have wifi here and can't watch

It.

That's sad!

Watching a cowardly slave praise his chains.
Maybe I'll have him lick my boots clean after he gets done worshiping his government gods...
I'm assuming this "man" has never visited a German concentration camp?
