What's wrong with Bill3?

Like the title says "What's wrong with Bill3?"?

I just had an awkward encounter with Bill3 and many other seemed to have it too in the same thread. I've seen many weird, provoking, threads and responses from this guy. Is he just someone whom I should ignore or does he makes some points that I just don't get?

What do you think?

Use Bill3 as a foil to refine your messaging

He plays the perfect devil's advocate.

Any decent forum should always have one. If we were a medieval village he would be the whipping boy or village idiot, so to speak.

It's almost like having Paul Krugman here in person :P

Bill3 is a public service in a way, IMO.

Heh

I hardly think the Devil would have an idiot for his advocate. Let's face it, your brain would stall out and probably go vegetable after half a round with me.

lmao

Love it

Perfect description!

We miss you Newt!

Like almost every other poster...

There are things he says that I agree with, and things I don't agree with.

Please, enough with the personal beef OPs... Argue your points in the comments section of the thread in question...

I mostly ignore him and his pedantic ramblings. Engaging Bill3 in discussion is like trying to pin jello - futile and messy.

All I know is that he posted

some great threads in which he vigorously defended his positions. I could see why some anarchists here don't like him, because he found flaws in their thinking. BILL3 for the President!

I'm not sure why an anarchist would even waste their time...

on any political forum. Anarchy doesn't have a political party. It can't be legislated into existence.

A real anarchist really doesn't care what Bill3 or anyone else thinks. They are going to live by their rules, laws and order matters not.

Who are these anarchist you speak of?

Who is BILL3 and why should you care?

What a waste of space and time.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

I think Triple Billy gets paid to post.

I've interacted with the user(s) of that account for quite some time.

The above is my honest opinion, and, not to be narcissistic, I have an uncanny talent for interpreting data.

dwalters message has been lost

An uncanny ability for interpreting data?

Is that right?

Kinda like your post about the message of Christ?

Someone who doesn't give a damn what others think - an individual, namely, me.

Probably so….

"Does he "makes" some points that I just don't get?"

You've answered your own question.

Bill3, Uuhpparantly "provoking" thought, is "weird" to some folks.

It wouldn't be so "awkward" if you'd just accept the status quo.

Okay? Kapish?

No more deep debating, pontificating, or intellectually inebriating.

No more educating, inculcating, or poetic masquerading.

Stick to the quicklinks.

Most folks would rather quickthink.

Thanks laundryhead

You always keep it fresh and clean, like if the head of Apollo were a a Tide laundry ball tasked to spread wisdom through the wash cycle that is the cosmic heartbeat of the worlds.

I usually like and enjoy his take, but it seems maybe his Faith, wherever he places it has been shaken. If he understood that there isn't any morality or law but what we each make for ourselves then maybe he could move on from where his head is currently.

BILL3 can be maddening, but....

...if nobody challenges your assumptions, you will follow premises to absurdities. BILL3 points out absurdities. Libertarianism (and I have a deep appreciation for Rothbard and Rand, and I follow NAP pretty closely) does not solve every 'problem'. BILL3 loves to point out the 'problems' and then propose that if property rights or NAP have certain bad results, a reasonable person must discard such ideas.

Then BILL3 goes on to 'solve' the 'problems' by asserting utilitarianism. He believes practical solutions, like initiating force sometimes to achieve a good result, is perfectly acceptable, indeed it is a requirement. What's more is that, if you dig deeply enough, we all participate in some form of initiation of force. Therefore, libertarianism is a false god, a false religion, that needs to be replaced by a more flexible and practical approach: utilitarianism.

Here's the shocker: he's right. Here's the non-shocker: his medicine to treat injustice is opening the door to all injustice.

There are times, generally very extreme circumstances that few of us will ever experience, when NAP does more harm than good, and when libertarianism fails to result in any reasonable concept of justice. However, utilitarianism is so subjective that it leads to continuous political conflict, even among it's practitioners. That's how we got to where we are today.

As with any human-created concepts, there are limitations with libertarianism and NAP. BILL3 is great at pointing them out. But he is blind to accepting the major problem of throwing out NAP in favor of utilitarian 'the best for the most.' Every tyranny is built on that 'principle'.

huh

one of the more unique and unexpected points i've read here in a while.

Just block him and move on.

Libertarian Ideas Get Better

because of opposition and competition in ideas. I wish I could say libertarian ideas get better because of the BILL3's in the world but lets face it ... if our only opposition was limited to BILL3's it would be a better world. Unfortunately the real opposition in power is much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, worse than any Daily Paul poster will ever be. If Obama had a Daily Paul account any BILL3 threads would be peanuts compared to the volume of responses an Obama thread would get.
