Welcome to /liberty/, your board for the discussion of politics, society, news, and the human condition without authoritarianism (fascism, full-on communism, etc). The board's philosophy is simple - welcome all discussion from non-authoritarian viewpoints, light moderation, and most importantly of all fun.

We've seen SJWs, we've seen the far right, and we've seen the far left and we've said no, stop this madness - the moralizing authoritarians who seek to control society and shape it to their whims and test out their vague theories would enslave us just to feel that society was better. At /liberty/ we believe we would be best served by sticking to the path we've been on for so long, that of personal liberty.

WELCOME

See the image - if you make the cut, you'll be right at home on /liberty/. Even if you are an authoritarian (far left or far right), you're welcome to join us - just don't expect to be taken seriously.

Rules

1. Global Rules uber alles.

2. Spamming can result in a short ban. In the event of raids, discussion threads will be stickied to weather the storm.

3. Rules are lame, don't make me make more and don't whine for more moderation unless it is absolutely necessary.

4. This board has an actual topic and it's not fetish porn. Content that is clearly beyond the pale of the board's topic (fetish porn, clop, gore, etc) will be removed. If you need these things, they are a mere three clicks away; you can even get there one-handed.

Board Policy Vis-a-vis…

1. "Shitposting"

There is no such thing as shitposting. It's a vague and subjective concept that boils down to "irreverent posts or things I don't like," and therefore makes a bad yardstick for moderation. If you want discussion without fun, may I suggest another board?

2. "Shills"

While shills may exist, the intense pPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm autistic about it because you either picked that word for its strong connotation or because you're somehow ignorant of this connotation. Seeing as you might be the same faggot that called all women cunts, or at least that you saw nothing wrong with it, I'm betting on the former. I don't respect people whose case is entirely emotional, their terms deserve no better than to be dissected before they can cause harm.

>>50381

I'm not >>50374 I'm >>50362 but if you're implying my argument is purely emotional then you are delusional. Women do in fact have a much better deal with the state than any man does even make niggers will go to jail for child rape where as women (usually white or Jewish) can and often get away with it due to said state.

Perhaps you are right that gynocracy is a poor term for the matter, female preference might be less misleading. No I don't think all women are cunts. They're just as power hungry as anyone else though and ultimately I'd rather just not get romantically and sexually involved with them seeing as better alternatives are showing up.

What I want is actual equality under the law.

IQ is nothing more than a means to measure the g-factor. It's used in numerous other species outside of humans without complaint. The g-factor is roughly half of a human's individual variably when given an intellectual task to solve.

IQ is broken down by various factors depending on the test in question and anyone who posts IQ scores without qualifications is attempting to push an agenda on you. High fluid intelligence (Gf) does not impact your reaction time (Gs) even though both make up your IQ. Someone can seem "slow" or have shitty short-term memory and still blow you the fuck away with their insights because their Gf and Gc scores are sky-high. IQ is calculated from an average of all of these standardized test, so just looking at the final score is worthless when it comes to individual intellectual ability. This is also why online tests are worthless. You need a psychometrician to give you a breakdown of your test results.

You're right, they're an ethnicity, sort of like Mexicans. "Americans" as in the pre-1970s American, is mainly a mix of German, Irish, and Italian heritage wrapped up with a pretty English bowtie and occasionally a french sticker on the front of it. "African-American" is quite clearly "African" with American DNA mixed in from their entire race getting cucked by whitey. There's a reason Africans hate African-Americans.

That's a good point. The thing is that not surrendering is not the same as keeping up hostilities. The German government never should've invaded Belgium and other countries to begin with, and after it as, it ought to have retracted its troops as quickly as possible. Surrendering, however, frequently goes beyond this cessation of hostilities, and can entail the complete transfer of authority to another regime. I wouldn't be surprised if the leadership of Germany foresaw a massacre of its civilian population if it surrendered.

You were completely right to point that out. Most likely, I wouldn't have seen this kind of nuance either, if someone else had made my argument.

>>50372

Seeing as presidents tend to get more plebeian with each generation, you might be right. I was also happy that Trump got elected because he wasn't Shillary, which was the same kind of relief as when you notice that you caught a bullet in your hand and not your face.

Actually I think Germany might have offered to stop the war but Britain turned them down. I'm not an expert on the history.

Surrendering might be harder than it seems– but I don't know that the punishment imposed upon Germany would have been worse than the famine.

Might does make right.

Today, however, might is not so simple as physical strength and brute force. There are many forms of power, collective action one of them. The Axis (err the Reich and maybe Japan) was superior in WWII in every respect except for numbers… and that in the end was all that mattered. Actually nvm, the Allies beat the axis when it came to both cooperation and code encryption/decrytion… they also beat them in the science that mattered (nukes) and they beat them in daring (D-day, meanwhile Japan never invaded the mainland US and Germany never invaded the UK)….

K nvm the Axis was shit.

I lived in North Carolina for 2 decades. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere instead, because NC fucking sucks.

Think of anything that you would like to do outside your house: go to the park, go bowling, go to a bar, etc. Well in NC it's either A) non-existent, B) expensive as fuck because it's the only one for 80 miles, or C) a really shitty restricted version of the thing (see: any campsite in NC). The only thing you can do outside of your house is EAT, and not anywhere unique either.

People-wise, the place is so-so. The older folks in NC (> 50 years old) are legitimately southern and mostly polite; while the younger ones are Keith Urban southern and assholes.

The best part about NC? No sidewalks anywhere! And in the few places that do have sidewalks (i.e. downtown Raleigh), it comes with some of the worst parking known to mankind.

They would be unlikely to go anywhere that considers such attempts trespassing. An area where the prevailing norm is to shoot any and all persons to enter your property is unlikely to attract much commerce, or many homeowners for that matter. It is likely that the prevailing custom will be some limited presumption of easement unless otherwise noted, as it customarily is in Euro-American cultures. Shoot the mailman and you the neighborhood will likely go out of its way to make you feel unwelcome.

If anything, we in the western world have a problem with people defending their own property too little, not with exceeding what would be reasonable self-defense.

Assuming that political activities - like wars - followed a singular plan, instead of a bundle of plans by all kinds of decision-makers on all levels, and assuming that this plan was to make Saudi Arabia less shit (both are big assumptions), I still doubt the US could do that. There are some cases where wars actually did end up making countries more liberal, but these countries were economically weak and political rule was highly confused. Examples are Red Cambodia, Uganda under Idi Amin, or Rwanda during the genocide. These countries saw so much chaos and mayhem that wars introduced order and stability to them. These conditions don't exist in Saudi Arabia. The country is a shitfest, but it's not cannibalizing itself. Starting a war there would create exactly the kind of tension and mayhem that leads to decivilization. Assassinating the leadership might have more of a chance of success, but that the country sucks so hard is not just the leadership, it's the prevailing ideology.

Framing this in praxeological terms would be interesting. I thought of how to do that, but it's dumb and my brain is late.
