Welcome to /liberty/!

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 paranoia and schizophrenic moderation and community policing of /pol/ shows how fear of these legendary creatures can completely disrupt a community. If someone is posting something that you disagree with, even if they're paid to do it, you still have the mental faculties to decide if their argument is a good one or not, or to double check their sources. Calling another person a mythical shillicorn does not automatically defeat their argument. As far as moderation policy goes, shills do not exist, even if they're real in your mind.

3. Authoritarians

If you're a fledgling fascist or bunker-loving communist, you're welcome to stick around - you cannot be banned for your opinions on this board. Just don't expect to be taken seriously - the reason this board exists is because we already know we don't like authoritarianism, and want to discuss things without authoritarians sticking their noses into everything as they are wont to do.

4. "I Called You X, I Win"

Simply calling someone a fascist/communist/authoritarian/statist/shill/Jew/Nazi/etc. does not "defeat" them. Git gud.

That takes care of the important stuff. This sticky is subject to be updated anytime!

>Outlaw Star

Not really Libertarian in the traditional sense of the word but has themes of freedom in it. The main characters are basically a bunch of adventurers that do not consider themselves to be under the jurisdiction of any law and follow the ideology of "Outlaws".

"you" in english is both plural and singular

"ty" in polish is "you" singular

"wy" in polish is "you" plural

in the past when poland was soviet, people were expected and forced to refer to other individuals by "you plural"-"wy"

>Because the smaller ones have been either absorbed or out-competed

If so, we would have no small firms.

>There are many businesses in the U.S. that don't even have employees, which skews the numbers.

Non-sequitur as it has nothing to do with my argument. The fact that most businesses are small that even the self-employed can compete with large firms. These small firms employ almost half the private US workforce.

>In addition, companies often have an incentive to shift towards using independent contractors making themselves appear smaller than they actually are

There is a stronger incentive to hire full-time employees, as agencies and interviews can be costly. Otherwise the majority of the workforce would not be full-time. This is a moot point anyway since flexibility of contract work itself means they do not rely on any one firm regardless of size.

>Why would anyone take the risk of doing that especially if you're a small business owner near retirement age who has probably been working in the same industry for years with (likely) little expertise to invest in something new?

Your do not need expertise. A broad market index like the S&P returns 10% and lhas lower risk than operating a business. If they want to go virtually risk-free, there is the bond market.

>Maybe because the owner of capital can choose or not choose to employ his capital without starving while wage earners and the self-employed must work to eat?

An owner of capital is not a monopsony. Owners cannot choose to utilize capital freely without incurring risk and are limited by what the labor market can supply. Capitalists have to work to eat too.

>I'd need to see a source on those statistics.

>Taking numbers out of context means nothing

How is it taken out of context? If there is an increase in wage dependency, there should be a decrease in other areas of revenue sources such as housing and stocks.

>What you're saying hasn't been true in the U.S. for decades.

Proof? Are you including total compensation including benefits?

>You're making the assumption that decreased consumption is a result of change in spending habits or increased savings, which is not necessarily the case nor is it the driving factor in the U.S. today.

There is no assumption. All else equal, less expenditure = more savings. The only factor contrary to this trend would be a decrease of real income.

>Could be lack of job opportunities, rising cost of entry into the labor market, or debt.

And how are these all causes of capitalism? All three have state influence.

Debt Ceiling

With how the non-debates are going over the Wall with Trump and the new Congress, and each side blaming the other for the gridlock, isn't the same going to happen in a few months over the debt ceiling debate? What stops the debt ceiling debate turning into, "The Dems aren't providing a solution"/"Trump isn't playing ball and being a bully again?"

Isn't there a really high likelihood that the gridlock will cause the U.S. government to fall into default? What will happen if the U.S. defaults?

We should become socialists

Seriously, who the fuck cares about the liberty of those who don't want it?

In the end a decently informed libertarian knows more about socialism than socialists themselves, but unlike socialists he also knows about capitalism too. This means that you, as a libertarian, can easily become a big defender and promoter of socialism.

Then with all those books/speaking/tv royalties/politics money, you can buy whatever you want, maybe even some land somewhere where you can build a libertarian utopia, if you still believe in it. But why buying land? You could just use your influence in the State to wage war and conquer lands for yourself. Or buy some cocaine and some prostitutes, who cares? Just enjoy the fruit of those cucks who want you to rule over them.

Honestly, it's a complete waste of time trying to let people know about the advantages and the morality of liberty. These people refuse liberty for themselves and others. Marx and associates gave us an exceptional tool to pilot the masses to work for our personal interests. Voluntary slavery. Think about it: if you were to cause suffering among the people with your socialist policies, it would be their choice. You would basically make socialist suffer while you run all the way to the (swiss) bank with their money. It's them who decided to vote for you, after you promised to put their neighboors down in order to make them all equal. They wanted evil, you just capitalized on it.

Of course there will be some innocent victims, but who really cares? It's nothing compared to the enormous amount of statists that will suffer. You will make them poor slowly, day after day. A taste of their own medicine.

I don't know about you, but I'm gonna join the local social-democratic party today.

Libertarians live in imaginary ivory towers

If tomorrow were held an election where the communist party would face a party in favor of the free market and private property but not perfectly libertarian, most of libertarians would stay home in order to remain "pure".

Libertarians are a bunch of cucks. They can't do any significant political action, they don't have the courage to support initiatives that can further freedom in the non-free world we live in. They would rather face communism than making a choice with some consequences for once in their life.

That's why I find libertarians disgusting. At least commies move their ass even if it means supporting iniatives that aren't perfectly communistic. Instead libertarians will sperg at anyone that proposes something that can have a positive impact on our societies now.

Defeating the state by its overinflation

How about we for example support the lefties in the "give everyone money"-welfare in order to collapse the state's monetary system. It's obviously way more realistic than big Ls who actually think they can do shit except stripping. Also, we don't really want a smaller state. A smaller state is a healthier state, and is thus more viable through time than a large one. For the state to disappear, I think its system should become so authoritarian that the whole population of Normandie would stop following it due to its ridiculous expections.

Mirror from /v/:

>The IGDA (International Game Developers Association) on December 31, 2018, pushed new details regarding CVAA (21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act 2010). The high level CVAA will require any communications functionality and any UI used to be compliant and suitable for those with a wide range of conditions.

>Failure to comply will allow complaints to be made to the FCC and possible fines.

>Starting from January 1, 2019, games launched in the US must ensure they are accessible to people with disabilities. Here is some more information taken from the IGDA website regarding how games are affected based on their development progress.

>“The criteria must be considered from early in development, and people with disabilities must be involved in some capacity in the design or testing process.”

>Should the game not meet the standards and fail to comply, it will lead to customer complaints being issued to the FCC. From there the FCC will mediate and look into efforts made to fix the issues, and how feasible it would be to fix. The customer can also choose to extend the period of time the FCC allows for the fixes to be implemented, however, if the customer chooses not to extend the period of mediation, substantial fines may be issued.

>(b) Accessible – The term accessible shall mean that:

>(i) Operable without vision. Provide at least one mode that does not require user vision.

>(ii) Operable with low vision and limited or no hearing. Provide at least one mode that permits operation by users with visual acuity between 20/70 and 20/200, without relying on audio output.

>(iii) Operable with little or no color perception. Provide at least one mode that does not require user color perception.

>(iv) Operable without hearing. Provide at least one mode that does not require user auditory perception.

>(v) Operable with limited manual dexterity. Provide at least one mode that does not require user fine motor control or simultaneous actions.

>(vi) Operable with limited reach and strength. Provide at least one mode that is operable with user limited reach and strength.

>(vii) Operable with a Prosthetic Device. Controls shall be operable without requiring body contact or close body proximity.

>(viii) Operable without time dependent controls. Provide at least one mode that does not require a response time or allows response time to be by passed or adjusted by the user over a wide range.

>(ix) Operable without speech. Provide at least one mode that does not require user speech.

>(x) Operable with limited cognitive skills. Provide at least one mode that minimizes the cognitive, memory, language, and learning skills required of the user.

Another fine example of government protecting the most vulnerable among us; that is, AAA companies with enough resources to implement compliance, pay fines for not complying, or pay for approval.

How French “Intellectuals” Ruined the West: Pozzmodernism and Its Impact, Explained

Pozzmodernism presents a threat not only to liberal democracy but to modernity itself. That may sound like a bold or even hyperbolic claim, but the reality is that the cluster of ideas and values at the root of Pozzmodernism have broken the bounds of academia and gained great cultural power in western society. The irrational and identitarian “symptoms” of Pozzmodernism are easily recognizable and much criticized, but the ethos underlying them is not well understood. This is partly because Pozzmodernists rarely explain themselves clearly and partly because of the inherent contradictions and inconsistencies of a way of thought which denies a stable reality or reliable knowledge to exist. However, there are consistent ideas at the root of Pozzmodernism and understanding them is essential if we intend to counter them. They underlie the problems we see today in Social Justice Activism, undermine the credibility of the Left and threaten to return us to an irrational and tribal “pre-modern” culture.

Pozzmodernism, most simply, is an artistic and philosophical movement which began in France in the 1960s and produced bewildering art and even more bewildering “theory.” It drew on avant-garde and surrealist art and earlier philosophical ideas, particularly those of Nietzsche and Heidegger, for its anti-realism and rejection of the concept of the unified and coherent individual. It reacted against the liberal humanism of the modernist artistic and intellectual movements, which its proponents saw as naïvely universalizing a western, middle-class and male experience.

It rejected philosophy which valued ethics, reason and clarity with the same accusation. Structuralism, a movement which (often over-confidently) attempted to analyze human culture and psychology according to consistent structures of relationships, came under attack. Marxism, with its understanding of society through class and economic structures was regarded as equally rigid and simplistic. Above all, Pozzmodernists attacked science and its goal of attaining objective knowledge about a reality which exists independently of human perceptions which they saw as merely another form of constructed ideology dominated by bourgeois, western assumptions. Decidedly left-wing, Pozzmodernism had both a nihilistic and a revolutionary ethos which resonated with a post-war, post-empire zeitgeist in the West. As Pozzmodernism continued to develop and diversify, its initially stronger nihilistic deconstructive phase became secondary (but still fundamental) to its revolutionary “identity politics” phase.

You Can’t Make an Alternative to Patreon Because Banks Won’t Allow It - Andrew Anglin & Weev

>dailystormer.name/you-cant-make-an-alternative-to-patreon-because-banks-wont-allow-it/

>There is no way to create an alternative funding platform, because everything is a private company. I think that probably Dave Rubin and Jordan Peterson can create something that they will be allowed to operate – probably without PayPal, but with some bank doing credit card processing. And Sargon of Akkad will be allowed on that. For now, that will be allowed. Because I think that some people realize that this whole “shut it down” program is going way, way too fast. Eventually, it won’t just be PayPal that is shutting people down, it will be all banks and Visa itself. Because banks and Visa have the ability, technically, to deny people service based on their political ideology.

Couldn't there be a Patreon alternative that solely uses cryptocurrencies instead of credit cards?

Anarcho Capitalism Through Agorism

Since agorism believes in peaceful revolution via black markets, why don't we all just create more dCommerce businesses (ecommerce but with cryptos) so that we can influence other to to the same by coming up with more free market solutions thus kickstarting competition? That way, since every dCommerce business is using cryptos, the governments won't be able to tax us or regulate us so that means that they're going to collapse since they have no power.

This is why politicians are scared of crypto. This is literally how ancapistan will start. All we have to do is get people to start cultivation businesses with crypto. Let's leave the U.S Dollar behind in exchange for something of greater value.

A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism

Hey /liberty/, I'm having trouble figuring out a concept in Hoppe's book.

>Now assume that aggressively founded ownership is introduced.

Whereas before every person was the exclusive owner of his body

and could decide on his own whether to become a drunk or a philosopher, now a system is established in which a person’s right to

determine how to use his body is curtailed or completely eliminated, and instead, this right is partly or fully delegated to another

person who is not naturally linked to the respective body as its producer. What would be the consequence of this? The abolition of

private ownership of one’s body can be far-reaching: the nonproducers can have the right to determine all of the uses of “my” body

all of the time, or their right to do so can be restricted with respect

to time and/or domains, and these restrictions again can be flexible

(with the nonproducers having the right to change the restrictive

definitions according to their own taste) or fixed once and for all,

and so the effects can, of course, be more or less drastic! But whatever the degree, socialization of ownership always, and necessarily

so, produces two types of effects. The first effect, “economic” in the

narrower sense of the term, is a reduction in the amount of investment in human capital as defined above. The natural owner of a

body cannot help but make decisions regarding that body as long

as he does not commit suicide and decides to stay alive, however

restricted his ownership rights might be. But since he can no longer decide on his own, undisturbed by others, to what uses to put

his body, the value attached to it by him is now lower; the wanted

satisfaction, the psychic income, that is to say, which he can derive

from his body by putting it to certain uses is reduced because the

range of options available to him has been limited. But then, with

every action necessarily implying costs (as explained above), and

with a given inclination to overcome costs in exchange for expected

rewards or profits, the natural owner is faced with a situation in

which the costs of action must be reduced in order to bring them

back in line with the reduced expected income. In the Garden of

On a critical assessment of the term “human capital,” in particular of the absurd

treatment that this concept has had at the hands of some Chicago-economists (notably G. Becker, Human Capital, New York, 1975), cf. A. Rubner, The Three Sacred

Cows of Economics, New York, 1970.

Hans-Hermann Hoppe 27

Eden, there is only one way left to do this: by shortening the waiting time, reducing the disutility of waiting, and choosing a course

of action that promises earlier returns. Thus, the introduction of

aggressively founded ownership leads to a tendency to reduce

investment decisions and favors consumption decisions. Put drastically, it leads to a tendency to turn philosophers into drunks.

Now I can see how the net satisfaction that one can derive from one's body would be reduced if he does not have exclusive ownership of it, but I don't see how it would make him favour consumption decisions over investment decisions. Because let's say that someone else can choose what ends he can put his body towards for 30% of the time, surely the remaining 60% of his time he is free to put his body to the ends that he wants and derive full satisfaction from them? Thoughts?

Paul Cockbutt's Labor Time Economy

Oh boy, time to take a look at the latest alt-left pseud, Paul Cockshott and his video "Getting Down to the Details"

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTl4b0w6mpk )

>"we'll leave 'the Shops' out for simplicity's sake in our 5-point diagram [but we'll use the 'millions' denomination to sound like we can relate this to a real population lol]"

>at the moment I'm ignoring the flow of goods to schools and hospitals

<Video is called "Getting Down to the Details" but he doesn't hesitate to gloss over things that are inconvenient for him to explain, even in theory

>"the Factories"

<Cockbutt establishes in the comments section that even the production and pricing of specific commodities like sugar beets should be mandated and thoroughly controlled based "on science" so it begs the question of "what factories" will be allowed to exist to begin with, how many factories there will be, how many people they will individually employ, what types of workers will be employed there and what these workers will earn-as well as whether these workers will have chosen to work there or had been appointed. This is the kind of thing you'd expect to be touched upon from a video entitled "Getting Down to the Details".

>Cockbutt says in the comments that: "if you work harder you get paid more"

<allowing a company to subjectively pay individual employees more or less based on individual performance is allowing these workers to acquire disproportionate capital relative their peers and maybe even start selling things at a profit in "labor time credits". This isn't far-removed from status quo "capitalism" where workers are paid a wage based on factors both objective and subjective.

<Will a surgeon earn the same as a teacher or a trashman, what about other "public servants"? Don't expect an answer here. There are 821 different types of "Job" in the United States currently, I'd hate to be the guy that has to apportion out the duties and dues of all of them on an individual basis.

>"income tax is canceled out"

<Cockbutt doesn't attempt to tell us how many people are working in "the Factories" as opposed to "the Hospitals" and "etc." but he does know that "the Factories" will need four of something and "the Hospitals" "etc." will need two of something. Well actually the income tax is just assumed to be discarded and everything that isn't from "a Shop" from the "Hospitals, etc." is thus made free*

>Cockbutt claims in the comments that "China is 40% socialist"

<even though it has lower real public sector employment and taxes than the average OECD country, 4 million new independent businesses being created on a yearly basis and has unaudited livestream girls raking in thousands of petrodollars weekly (as this butthurt, decadent western roast beast can attest: https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-weird-and-disturbing-world-of-chinese-livestreamers )], to put simply, China's current year economy (as opposed to its culture) is wholly conventional and its successes or failures can't be claimed by "socialism".

>Cockbutt claims in the comments that if you're not independently wealthy in a capitalist society you go hungry and starve, but in the U.S. and Britain it has been repeatedly shown that poor and unemployed people are much more likely to be obese than employed and wealthy people which is a complete contradiction.

Would you trust your society to commissar Cockbutt, anon?

New Zealand Decriminalizes All (non-synth) Drugs

ANCAPS RISE UP

http://archive.is/39qQB

>New Zealand is experiencing a surge of synthetic drug overdoses—but in response, the government has introduced a series of reform policies that include treating possession and consumption as public health issues while increasing enforcement against synthetic drug suppliers.

>Officials are also weighing the potential “full decriminalisation of drugs.”

>Certain synthetic substances believed to have caused recent overdoses will now be more strictly scheduled under the country’s drug laws, which will expand the search and seizure authority of law enforcement.

>But the government is also amending its Misuse of Drugs Act to specify that police “should not prosecute for possession and personal use where a therapeutic approach would be more beneficial, or there is no public interest in a prosecution.”

>The reform policies represent an immediate response, but government leaders also said that formal decriminalization, as recommended earlier this month by the New Zealand Mental Health and Addiction Inquiry, is still under consideration.

>In the meantime, new funds will be used to enhance addiction treatment centers, especially in regions where there’s a spike in overdoses.

How do you think the gameplay of an ancap strategy game would ideally work?

For the story, I have two things in mind:

>1. You inherit a business empire, and have to get a monopoly on the whole market while trying to out-compete rival business groups and survive the growing power of the state as well as various anti-capitalist factions

>2. You are a multi-millionaire who is sick of liberal totalitarianism and leftism interfering with your life and the lives of your fellow countrymen, so you decide to take your fortune to some unoccupied territory and build a capitalist utopia with other like-minded businessmen while competing with their businesses, and fighting off aggressive states who are unhappy with the amount of freedom that you and your fellow ancaps (or not) enjoy

In ordinary RTSs, you just throw resources at the barracks to shit out soldiers, which go and secure more resources to enable you to shit out even more soldiers, and it's basically a contest between players of who can do this the fastest. No game (not even city-sims) ever takes the market into account, where you have:

>a realistic economy

>citizens having their own lives

>citizens having their own wants and needs

>citizens earning their own money

>citizens spending their own money

>citizens building the villages, towns and cities that you're supposedly trying to protect, and being responsible for all the progress in their part of the game world

>the player being a citizen like everyone else, who can take part in the market and influence it with what power he has (or if playing as the government, having society react appropriately to government laws/actions and looking work solutions and work-arounds to the problems that government creates)

Assess this statement:

Anarcho-capitalism isn't an abolition of government, it's an abolition of the state. The point is to put the power to government entirely on individuals.

I noticed when watching this new JBS video that this presents an easy case against all forms of anarchism, since it logically follows that no government -> no structure -> chaos

Q&A

Hi, social democrat here interested in the rational and reasoned debate that you liberals are so famous for.

Anyways, I just want to get a few answers from you guys:

1) I often hear from libertarians and the like that “taxation is theft”. This is repeated often, but it seems to me to be quite a ridiculous assertion. How do you respond to someone who asks you to biblically justify your assertion that taxation is theft when the Lord never decreed it as such? The ancient Israelites, after all, had systems of taxation and not once, to my knowledge, did a prophet ever inveigh against taxation as a moral evil or equivocate it with theft. The only reason tax collectors in the New Testament were designated as sinners was because they were helping an occupying and alien force (the Romans) extort arbitrary amounts from the Jewish people. And it is noted that even then, despite being forced to pay unreasonable amounts coerced via a discriminatory state apparatus imposed by others with no chance at real political representation, that Jesus still instructs the Jews to pay.

2) How do libertarians justify the clear evils present within the existing capitalist framework that the vast majority of the world lives under today? To illustrate this, today my 5 year old phone was on the fritz and I was thinking of getting a new one. Curious, I tried to search for a replacement “fair” phone, i.e. one made respecting the rights of workers, ensuring that they are treated well, sourced with materials not extracted from conflict zones like the Democratic Republic of Congo, environmentally friendly as possible, etc. Unfortunately, I was not able to do so. The farthest I could get was the FairPhone, but a closer examination of just one of the points that I was looking for (worker rights), revealed that despite their rhetoric they were unable to substantially improve working conditions for their Chinese workforce. Even then, the phone makers were charging a premium (I think it was 500 euros). This means that I literally cannot buy a phone without contributing in some way to an active war or abuse of workers or environmental degradation. What is the libertarian response to such market failure?

3) Libertarians and liberal social policy. I don’t know about you guys, but the image I get when I think of “libertarian” is a Republican-voting millennial who is fine with gay marriage and drugs. Let’s ignore the whole issue over gay sex being sinful for the moment and stick solely with drugs. Libertarians support legalization of weed and I think the CATO institute even argued for full legalization of all drugs like what Portugal did. But why? How does allowing people to play out their escapist and addictive fantasies enrich society in any way? How is it moral? I hear a lot of talk about how the Drug War is a failure, but it is only a failure because the government (U.S. in this case) doesn’t want to take the necessary steps to end it successfully. As a counterpoint, I would like to bring in Singapore. Singapore issues the death penalty for those convicted of dealing drugs. It has one of the lowest drug usage rates in the world - According to the 2008 World Drug Report by the United Nations office on drugs and crime, 8.2% of the UK population are cannabis abusers; in Singapore it is 0.005%. For ecstasy, the figures are 1.8% for the UK and 0.003% for Singapore; and for opiates – such as heroin, opium and morphine – 0.9% for the UK and 0.005% for Singapore. A close to drug-free society is possible. Why give up the fight simply because one government doesn’t really care?

Anyways thanks for your time.

If they really believe segregation is natural and blacks are inferior, why don't they advocate for voluntary association and the end of the welfare state?

Shouldn't that be an easier sell than "hey let's kill the niggers"?

Why do these """"""libertarians"""""" believe the government won't abuse this power?

It's almost as if these """"""libertarians"""""" use liberty as an ad-hoc excuse to kill and deport racial minorities…

Taxation of Thottery

/liberty/, if you have not heard yet, thots that make money through private Snapchat and chaturbate and the like are now being reported to the IRS for avoiding to pay they're taxes.

Most of you may think that this is bad, given the nature of this board but I would say this is great for us and let me explain why:

Since these women are by and largely leftist, they support higher taxes. The only thing (and rather unsuprising I might add,) is that they haven't actually been paying them since they've been making they're money under the table. This should wake them up and hopefully get them stirred up about taxation or at least the IRS in general, and when pretty ladies that make people's pp hard are pissed at something, white knights are almost certain to follow in their footsteps.

It may seem contradictory to rat them out to the IRS but I think that it would be an overall win for libertarianism if we keep on doing this.

Ex-libertarian here

I was a libertarian by choice once. Began in my edgy teenage years. I have now long abandoned libertarianism/ancapism in favor of traditionalism/fascism.

And I wanna tell you why, because I loved beeing a libertarian, it is fun and feels good but I had to evolve.

I realized that a libertarian society can only be established in a homogenous society. A society were everyone has the same personal agenda: Liberty . But this homogenous society can never exist in a pluralist, democratic, mutli-racial and liberal system of thought/politics as it would break away immediately because of the inner tension..

That's why the monarchies old old failed to withstand Bolshevism and that's why libertarian "states" would not withstand them either: they are much too laisez-fairez to build a completely resistant block against Bolshevism. Having a strong state with a strong army or an armed populace is not enough to withstand the red storm, you need a ready and rallied and educated people to withstand the enemy within.

New Reading Guide

I wanted to make a right-wing reading list initially, but turns out I cannot, in good conscience, make one while omitting the libertarian aspect of it, which I believe is genuinely right-wing, whereas shit like national socialism and distributism are leftism in disguise.

So I took our old reading list and amended it. I also cut a few entries, like Molyneux (he is pretty low-tier), the New Libertarian Manifesto (everything from it is pretty much included in the Agorist Primer), and Nozick (he just isn't that good and hardly relevant anymore).

Hope this is of help for someone!

Taiwan Police Apprehend 3-D Printed Gun Pioneer Accused Of Child Sex Abuse

Wilson, 30, was taken to immigration authorities in the capital by officers from Taiwan’s Criminal Investigation Bureau, according to local media reports and an official from the bureau who asked not to be named. However, two Taiwanese officials denied Wilson was arrested or in custody. His exact status was unclear.

Because his U.S. passport was later annulled, the agency’s statement said, he “no longer has the legal status to stay in Taiwan.”

Facing accusations of having sex with a minor, it appears that Cody Wilson, the man behind the 3-D Printable firearms company Defense Distributed, is somewhere in Taiwan being pursued by local police.

According to reporting by Chinese-language media outlet United Daily News, Wilson has skipped his flight home to the U.S. and has attempted to rent an apartment in Taiwan. He appears to have initially passed himself off as an American student living in the city but has since been turned away by a prospected landlord who recognized him and called the authorities.

United Daily News reports that area police and Taiwan’s Criminal Investigation Bureau are now trying to locate Wilson.

On Wednesday, Police in Austin Texas announced that they had a warrant out for the arrest of the 3D-printed gun pioneer on allegations of sexual assault of an underage girl. Investigators say both Wilson and the young girl met through a website called SugarDaddyMeet.com and were spotted at an Austin Hotel.

The department revealed that Wilson’s last known location was Taipei, Taiwan but that authorities were unsure whether the 30-year-old had gone to Taiwan on legitimate business or whether he was expressly trying to flee the United States.

“We can’t confirm any of the [Taiwan] reports just yet; no updates planned for today,” Lisa Cortinas, a spokeswoman for the Austin Police Department, told ArsTechnica on Thursday afternoon.

The Taiwan News has also reported that Wilson is on the ground in Taiwan, having been spotted at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Taipei after arriving in the city on September 6. However, they report that Wilson checked out the next day.

Wilson, who has recently won a legal battle against the State Department, a court decision which has pissed off Attorney Generals across the United States, has relentlessly pursued his principled passion for disseminating 3-D printable gun blueprints to the general public.

After a federal judge in Seattle blocked Defense Distributed from having the gun blueprints available to anyone free of price, Wilson jumped through a loophole, placing them for sale in order to keep them available.

> A German actress has landed herself in hot water after stripping and flashing her bum (and more) to a group of men in a carpark – unaware that the trio were actually undercover police, who then filmed her saucy little striptease.

>Antje Mönning, 40, described her roadside antics as a spur-of-the-moment decision… that landed her with a €1,200 fine ($1,390). The German sitcom star was caught on video in June by plain-clothed police conducting traffic checks. In the video, the actress – famous for her role as a nun called Jenny in German TV show ‘For Heaven’s Sake’ – can be seen shaking her hips invitingly, while tucking up her skirt.

>Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Mönning slammed the fine for her salacious little number in Jengen, Bavaria.

>“I wagged my buttocks in front of three men who seemed involved in a conversation, slightly lifting my little skirt, under which I was naked,” she told the tabloid.

>The actress, who described herself as an “exhibitionist,” said that nudity should be “considered natural.” She also slammed her public nuisance charge, launching into an emotional rhetorical diatribe.

>“Do we really want to live in a society where you can not fool around mindlessly, where everyone is secretly recorded on video, in which people sue each other instead of talking to each other and in which tolerance and acceptance soon only exist as foreign words in the dictionary?” she asked.

swedes also practice a form of it but it has different roots

Swedish men are more interested in each other than women so swede women have to import heterosexuals to fuck them

Why aren't we tackling the real issues here? Political ideologies don't exist in a vacuum, they're based on preconceived notions or underlying foundations which form a person's worldview.

Commies/Leftists are atheists. They believe apes crawled out of a soup after nothing exploded 9 gorillion years ago. They believe man has no inherent values or qualities, which is why they're fine with killing babies in the womb. They're fine with feminism because they believe there are no objective family roles. They believe there's nothing wrong with a man inserting his weewee in another man's butt. In fact, they don't believe in objective or absolute truth at all. Good and evil are just subjective, morality is just a "spook". they believe in moral relativism which is why they're fine with importing millions of immigrants with radically different and hostile cultures.

If you want to un-brainwash lefties, stop talking about political subjects because it's pointless when you both don't understand eachother's underlying worldviews. Attack the root of the issue: their atheism and belief in "millions of years". Debates should be had in the realm of science, philosophy and theology before you can effectively adopt a political stance best suited for mankind. The same goes for you ancaps and libertarians by the way, explain WHY you believe in these things. Theists take God-given inalienable rights for granted, but atheists don't believe in these 'negative rights' because in their worldview there is no purpose to life and good/evil are just subjective and relative.

Political wankery without addressing the scientific or philosophical foundations they're based on is a fruitless effort. It's like attacking branches instead of cutting the root. Whether you believe in Creation or Evolution is going to affect what political ideology you like.

Liberty dollars

In 2007, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the vaults of the Liberty dollar, and confiscated $7 million of gold and silver bullion. The seizure warrant was for money laundering, mail fraud, wire fraud, counterfeiting, and conspiracy.

>Note that none of these charges have anything to do with “legal tender,” or any restrictions on people to transact in the currency of their choice.

/liberty/ goes to Washington

Through some means or other, you have become the President of the United States. Assuming you don't elect to resign from this position, what actions would you take using your newfound authority to further the cause of liberty? Only rule is that you have to exercise your power "legally." Yes, most of what the president does these days can be construed as illegal from reading the Constitution, but given that such actions have been ruled not to be illegal by our socialist courts they're fair game. I'll start:

First, use all the power that the executive branch has claimed over the years to our advantage:

<Gunownership

>create new federal agency, "Gunowners of America"

>every American citizen over 18 is automatically inducted as a member of this organization

>as federal agents, members have the right to purchase, manufacture, and own firearms currently banned by US law

>can buy select-fire guns, SBRs, SBSs, AOWs, DDs, can also manufacture these without an FFL

>status as federal agents allows them to bypass any state restrictions of fun ownership

>can carry funs into schools, onto planes, or any other area that is a "gun free zone" to a "civilian"

>importers can import guns ordinarily banned from import if those bans hadn't already been repealed by me as long as they are only sold to GOA members

>Driver's license or passport are sufficient to prove GOA ownership

>If driver's license or passport are not obtainable (through blue state kikery of such) anyone may obtain a GOA ID card

>Alteration of any rules of the GOA charter, including privileges granted to members, can only be changed through an explicit, unanimous vote of every member of the GOA

>If a GOA member cannot be located for the vote, his vote is assumed to be "no."

>The GOA may only be disbanded through a similar vote

>GOA membership may not be rescinded or revoked for any reason

<Immigration

>Immediately withdraw all troops home, station at border

>appropriate DoD funds for border wall

>solicit armed forces and Army Corps of Engineers to build wall

>publicly announce that any unauthorized personnel within 100 yards of border will be considered a member of an invading force, and if not dispersed after one warning is shot on sight

>tell beaner government to assist in keeping illegals out or face 100% tax on remittances entering Mexico

>preemptively tell leaf government same thing as beaners may try to fly to mapleland and hop to US once visa expires

>any state which is a "sanctuary" to illegals is cut off from all federal funding

DEFUNDING:

>repeal all gun import bans enacted by executive order

>repeal all import and export bans of any kind established similarly

>fire every member of the FDA, EPA, USDA, FCC, BATFE, DoH, DoE, and any other federal agency that isn't GOA

>repeal any regulations passed by these agencies

>fire every member of the USPS even though its existence is guaranteed by constitution

>exception is FBI whose firing will be done gradually

>announce that tax evasion, violations of above agency's regulations, etc., will not be enforced by the government

>US armed forces will take up role of ICE and Border Patrol

For federal laws that the executive can't repeal alone:

>announce that the federal government will not prosecute those who practice medicine/law/etc. without a license, announce similar non-enforcement of similar "crimes"

>withdraw from NATO, UN Security Council, any similar organization

>announce that US will ignore any demands made by UN

>withdraw from every trade agreement that isn't "unregulated trade"

>use privileged position of White House as national bully pulpit to go on national TV and shill for Rothbard, Hoppe, and the Mises Institute

>use bully pulpit to encourage states to secede, say that the US government will not act against them if they do

I think that's about the extent of what can be done with the Executive Branch alone, thoughts?

Let's explore the idea of Chinese Reaganomics

What was supposed to be a nice tongue-in-cheek thread about capitalism and communism was spammed by the users and deleted by the mods over on /pol/ so I figured we could discuss it here without too much trouble, instead.

In short, the Chinese economy stagnated under socialism for over 60 years and in under half that time it became a major player on the world stage by simply adopting a more status quo approach to market based economics, with Chinese individuals seeing exponential increases in their wages and general improvements in their living conditions (based on HDI). What does this all mean for /leftypol/ for example, that believe a controlled and closed off market is preferable when we have yet another powerful anecdote to the contrary?

Free market's achilles heel

I understand the arguments for a free market and how it naturally fixes shit (bad companies go out of business, good companies grow) but there is one glaring problem I've never seen addressed..

What about social engineering, brainwashing or pushing agendas? I'm from /v/ and I'll use video games as an example. The vidya industry has turned to shit because of the lowest common denominator, casuals and brain-dead consumers. This is because of culture - people have lower standards today and will gladly eat shit.

The idea of a free market paradise only works if the consumers are educated and know how to vote with their wallet. It falls apart in a society where people are stupid because bad businesses with anti-consumer practices can still grow and survive, as evident by the many terrible vidya developers like EA or Activision that haven't made a good game since forever yet are still rich because of the dumb majority who keep buying their trash.

I keep hearing that in a free market, the best quality products will be available for the cheapest price, yet from observation this doesn't seem to be the case..

Economic Question

I have been around many ideologies in the past. I've seen many discussions between natsocs, fascist, commies and traditionalist and not once did I ever get a satisfying answer to the economic question. One of the main reasons I am drawn to libertarianism is because you guys seem to be the most consistent in regards to economics and discuss it frequently where as other ideologies seem to think that the economy works like magic and simply having the right government would instantly mean a prosperous economy. Why is it that so many of these people are so willing to disregard the idea of the free market and think that capitalism as an idea is a failure?

Conservationism

Sometimes I get into discussions about, "Does there really need to be THAT MUCH land in reserve and as national parks?" There are many other topics where people feel when they're getting into slippery slopes, but somehow conservation just puts the blinders on. Maybe it's just the people I talk to, but conservationism is one of those that if I were a modern-day Genghis Khan and I wanted to convince people to genocide entire populaces, that might be my goto. Here's how it goes for me sometimes:

- Well, the rainforest is the world's lungs. So, you can't have any development there.

- Most of those parks dotted around in the Eastern U.S. are to preserve endangered wildlife.

- Yes, the West is mainly uninhabited wastes and desert, but extremely large expanse of land is O.K. because it's so rare in the modern age to have a place where wildlife can grow as it was meant to.

- Yes, Antarctica is a barren, desolate hellscape of ice, but it's the only place on Earth humans have collectively decided to leave untouched, and I think we should preserve that–even though there are vast, vast areas of land you could settle that would be no danger to any wildlife because there is none. It's just important to keep nature as nature, you know?

- You know, I'm starting to think settling Mars is a bad idea because of the rare chance of bacteria that–(IT IS SCARY HOW EASY IT IS FOR ME TO GET PEOPLE TO THIS FUCKING LEVEL)

- Yes, I think nature is more important than humans in a lot of cases.

I almost want to write a satire entitled, "Mao: the Greatest Environmentalist."

If you're a conservationist, convince me that you don't hate humanity. You're putting nothing over the lives and interests of your fellow man, aren't you?

The Socialist Calculation Debate for the Umpteenth Time

The calculation argument is that prices reflect subjective values.

The knowledge argument is that there are orders of knowledge that are only discoverable using markets.

Yes, even these bastardizations of the arguments have issues, but I think it's at least an improvement.

WHY DO THESE TWO KEEP GETTING HOMOGENIZED TOGETHER? More than that, why do they get homogenized into a completely different argument?! Most of the time, it gets homogenized into, "The human brain is deterministic; therefore, we can model it; therefore, an objective utility function can be defined, and we know that calculating a utility from the human brain is difficult, but we can solve a massive linear programming problem–Mises just pointed out how difficult that problem was" That's not the calculation argument. It's not Hayek's knowledge argument. It's infuriating how often I hear this.

I am henceforth calling this argument "The socialist's strawman."

Anyways, what gets me is not only that it's a strawman, but it's a very, very weak strawman.

>Over the past months, Maduro has been touting a new plan for economic recovery, which includes a new policy on gasoline pricing that would raise Venezuela’s ultra-cheap gas prices for the first time in two decades. The plan to ease the severe economic crisis also featured a devaluation of the currency and pegging the new bolivars to the Petro.

>Maduro claims that the Petro is strengthening his recently announced economic overhaul plan and will “revolutionize” the global crypto economy with a new form of trade, finance, and monetary exchange.

The deportees, mostly political prisoners and petty criminals, were forcibly sent to the small, isolated island in Western Siberia, located 540 kilometers (340 mi) northwest of Tomsk, to construct a "special settlement". They were abandoned with only flour for food, and little in the way of tools, clothing, or shelter, and those who attempted to leave were killed by armed guards.[1][2] The conditions of the island led to widespread disease, abuse of power, violence, and cannibalism. Within thirteen weeks, over 4,000 of the deportees related to Nazino Island had died or disappeared, and a majority of the survivors were in ill health.[3][2]

Libertarianism from First Principles

How many libertarians are actually principled?

Few in the National LP from my angle. What do I mean by principled? I mean you don't arrive at your conclusions haphazardly with ur feelz, but with an "unbreakable" chain of logical truths. Science bitches!

Check out the embedded (((YouTube))) video by Shane Killian for a good breakdown.

I know I considered myself a libertarian for years before I understood wtf they meant by "principle".

But once you're principled, every single libertarian position is self-evident to you (with some notable exceptions like abortion) and you become one consistent motherfucker. Once you get to this point, the LP almost seems like a joke: "the party of principle" my ass!

But hey, at least the intent is there in the motto. And look, holding onto principle can be fucking difficult. The political winds will blow you right the fuck away. If you don't hold on tight, you will you be forcing jew grannies to bake nazi cakes at gunpoint, before you know it.

Isn't principle what really separates us from the statist sheep and LINOS? Doesn't it elevate our political ethos above a simple ideology? We don't "believe" this, we just acknowledge fundamental truths as such.

So, what do you liberty anons think?

>The aim of the course is to examine the concept of whiteness and its functioning in different historical, social and cultural contexts. During our classes we will analyse ways in which whiteness is constructed within changing systems of status hierarchy and pose a question about its relationship to a category of race. We will draw on theoretical approaches adopted in „whiteness studies”, discuss the origins and development of this research field and relate it to wider studies on ethnicity, race and racism. Referring to the works of sociologists, historians and anthropologists we will show how whiteness has organized and defined different forms of social privileged that is still perpetuated by the cultural patterns of valorisation operating in Western and non-Western societies. In this context we will also discuss whiteness in connection with issues such as culturally conditioned perception of the body and ideals of beauty, whiteness and class, whiteness and gender, whiteness and colorism. During the course we will not only focus on scholarly works but will also consider representations and problematizations of whiteness that can be found in literature, visual arts, film or advertising.

The Uniqueness of Western Civilization | Ricardo Duchesne and Stefan Molyneux

One of the rare modern-day sociologists who is not a SJW (as a former marxist he knows how to refute them). A pretty good interview, shedding light on how much the west has actually contributed to human sociology and science, protestations of the cultural marxists aside.

>Book Summary: "This extensively researched book argues that the development of a libertarian culture was an indispensable component of the rise of the West. The roots of the West's superior intellectual and artistic creativity should be traced back to the aristocratic warlike culture of Indo-European speakers. Among the many fascinating topics discussed are: the ascendancy of multicultural historians and the degradation of European history; China's ecological endowments and imperial windfalls; military revolutions in Europe 1300-1800; the science and chivalry of Henry the Navigator; Judaism and its contribution to Western rationalism; the cultural richness of Max Weber versus the intellectual poverty of Pomeranz, Wong, Goldstone, Goody, and A.G. Frank; change without progress in the East; Hegel's Phenomenology of the [Western] Spirit; Nietzsche and the education of the Homeric Greeks; Kojeve's master-slave dialectic and the Western state of nature; Christian virtues and German aristocratic expansionism."

>Dr. Ricardo Duchesne is a historical sociologist, a professor at the University of New Brunswick and the author of “The Uniqueness of Western Civilization,” “Faustian Man in a Multicultural Age” and “Canada In Decay: Mass Immigration, Diversity, and the Ethnocide of Euro-Canadians.”

The great thing about you /liberty/ retards is that you're exactly as retarded as the /leftypol/ retards. Whereas /leftypol/ retards pride themselves in a moralist (pseudo-)critique of capitalism that only centers itself around notions of justice; of 'fair' distribution, the main man they claim to have stand as their authority figure on their opinion, Karl Marx, thinks they're all gigantic morons who haven't noticed that the central point of tension is not between the labourer and capitalist, i.e. the transhistorical and merely abstract character masks within the division of labour, but between labour and capital themselves.

In this text, Marx berates a leftist idiot (Adolph Wagner) for contorting his writings into a book that wholly misrepresents his views, producing takedowns and corrections of his bullshit such as this:

https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1881/01/wagner.htm

>What a “subtraction from the worker” is, subtraction of his skin, etc., is not evident. At any rate, in my presentation even, “profit on capital” is in actual fact not “a subtraction from, or robbery of, the worker.” On the contrary, I depict the capitalist as the necessary functionary of capitalist production and demonstrate at great length that he not only “subtracts” or “robs” but enforces the production of surplus value, thus first helping to create what is to be subtracted; what is more, I demonstrate in detail that even if only equivalents were exchanged in the exchange of commodities, the capitalist—as soon as he pays the worker the real value of his labour-power—would have every right, i.e. such right as corresponds to this mode of production, to surplus-value.

>[…]

>The obscure man falsely attributes to me the view that “the surplus-value produced by the workers alone remains, in an unwarranted manner, in the hands of the capitalist entrepreneurs” (Note 3, p. 114). In fact I say the exact opposite: that the production of commodities must necessarily become “capitalist” production of commodities at a certain point, and that according to the law of value governing it, the “surplus-value” rightfully belongs to the capitalist and not the worker. …

So rest assured, both you and the leftist idiots are not just equally as stupid, but the LARPing internet idiots you find on the internet not only currently stand outside of any level of class struggle and the Marxist understanding of class struggle, but always will find themselves there so long as they operate on the moralising plane of their critiques.

Midterms Thread (Remember to vote!)

I'm making this thread in preparation for the midterms to raise awareness for voting; if we want to make the USA a truly free place as it was meant to be, we all need to vote for people who want to make that happen. /liberty/ isn't the largest board on the website, but there are still people here who can help to make a difference. I know a lot of us are going to vote but there still might be those who can be encouraged, hence why I'm making this thread. Another reason is so we can talk about good candidates and figure out the best choices for each state.

Living in New Hampshire, which is already a fairly free state, someone going by Aaron Day has popped up and he's interested in doing a lot to make the state better. I'm planning on voting for him; I don't want Chris Sununu in charge of my home any longer.

The New Hampshire primaries are on

>September 11th

and the general voting is on

>November 6th

It's a smaller state so I'm not sure if many people here live in NH but for those of you who do, those are the dates. Anyways, lets discuss the midterms and what we can do to raise votes to make a freer America!

Mainly having that AnCap society not being one society, but several societies that each have their own culture and way of doing things much like Libertarians themselves. You could have libertarians with a more marshal honor culture based off of Hans Herman Hoppe or hippie communes based off of someone like Jeffrey Tucker. My story will be about how the society deals with issues like these. I don't want to give out to many details as to not have ideas stolen.

Ancap social boundaries

Thread about spiritual ancap community problems. I run a spiritual ancap community, and while doing so problems arise, especially leadership and self governing problems. I made a post explaining the manipulation that can arise if you are not in the leadership role all the time, because people always want to control. (((Here is the full post))) https://www.patreon.com/posts/social-20712261

Working in different groups have taught me, to set up strong social boundaries. Because some people see kindness and compassion as being weak or vulnerable. They misuse the kindness and openness you give them and try to control the group or you.

Because they are not used to living free and open. They try to manipulate and gaslight you.

(So what does this word mean? "Gaslighting" is used to describe abusive behavior, specifically when an abuser manipulates information in such a way as to make a victim question his or her sanity and twist words upside . Gaslighting intentionally makes someone doubt their actions, beliefs, or perception of reality.)

From now on, if anyone is gaslighting, being manipulative, abusing my kindness, being irresponsible, or not respecting me and my friends. And being a drain on community resources and time.

Then they get 1 chance to change their behavior or else its out of the community. This is not a free loading place, here action is taken.

Many people that come here, have lost their own sense of leadership and they want me to tell them how to wipe their own asses, then I say If you want that kind of leadership, stay in your current society where everyone tells you how to wipe your own ass. Learn to take power back in your own hands, and do things because you want to help, not because I told you to help .

Free Banking

It seems most of us here agree with Rothbard that fractional-reserve banks are inherently fraudulent and wouldn't exist in a free market. Anyone take the "free banking" view, that private banks need not maintain 100% reserves, and it's not only permissible but beneficial for banks to loan out their obligations? If so, what's the answer for how such a system would work on the market? The way I see it, there's a pretty strong market incentive to maintain 100% reserve, because the moment any one bank starts to expand its credit, other banks would notice this, and it would be in their interest to cash in obligations held with that bank, and force a run. What's the free-banking response to this?

Digital First Amendment Bull

This is a bit late to the party but these threads last forever on this board so whatever. Since Alex Jones got kicked off of four platforms in mere days of each other, as well as conservatives getting shadowbanned and actually banned on social media, people are actually calling for the First Amendment to cover Social Media. "Small government" conservatives want to get the government to run social media or prevent private companies from banning people they like because they are a "monopoly". This is stupid because as us libertyfags know, government sucks at running most if not everything.

However, these tech giants like Twitter and Facebook have set a bad precedent with banning Alex Jones. It was a stupid decision because it just confirms all the conspiracies about the "elite" Alex Jones has been cooking up over the past few years. It also makes him into a martyr that hurts their image. This will likely have two possibilities. A, the Trump run government will likely take partial control of social media ruining it, or B the right just goes to Gab, Vidme, Bitchute, etc. creating two sets of echo chambers. One for the left and one for the right. This would make things worse for politics as people will no longer talk to each other, further increasing tension in an already politically fractured USA.

We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

"Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost….

"The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

"To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..

"Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

"In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

"Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!

"Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!"

on creating ancapistan

What do you think of the idea of creating ancapistan irl? I'm sure it must have been discussed before. It would of course only be a state in the eyes of statists, and different communities would of course have different relations to other countries. The largest problem would of course be aquiring land, and I think the two best solutions would be either international waters or nonland. Nonland isn't much of an alternative, as it's basically just LARPing. So, so far it seems to be best to go like Sealand and be positioned within international waters. Of course, the non-abundance of land on an oil rig or artificial island would deem it difficult to have different communitites in the beginning. But, as long as we have some criteria on who can join ancapistan's existing land (no statists and other fags etc.), it wouldn't be much of a problem. Also, in other to seem like we're not only larping, I propose naming it something else than ancapistan. Say, if we decided on water, it could be named (New) Atlantis or something, idk.

Russia and the transformation from socialism to capitalism

How does /liberty/ explain the catastrophic development of Russia after the deconstruction of socialism? Remember that during the early Yeltsin period, the free market in Russia was almost anarchic, state institutions almost collapsed, and private oligarchs appropriated most of the state's property, quickly establishing a new capitalist class in Russia. Yet it had negative consequences: Life expectancy sank so much it killed almost 6 million people, GDP collapsed beyond repair, infrastructure crumpled, employees were laid off everywhere, massive increase in alcoholism and domestic violence, end of the almost 100% literary rate, shortages, inflation, the loss of the super power status. Sure Putin's Russia alleviated some of the most urgent problems, but he did so through putting a stop to the privatizations and propping up some kind of state capitalism, but it's still far beyond what it had once been. There is still corruption, poverty and economically Russia is a gas station first and foremost.

I mean, what did the USSR provide? Steady economic growth (YES there was stagnation in the Brezhnev period but it is meant that economic growth wasn't as high as it was before, not actual stagnation), full employment, super power, development of nuclear fusion, no homelessness. Of course there were problems, such as the fact that the Soviet cybersin program was abandoned just like the "Soviet internet" as it threatened the power of some of the bureaucrats, which means yes, there were structural deficits, but that doesn't change that the Soviet economy put the people first. Read: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/OGAS

If that would have been implemented, USSR could have gone beyond money and a more cybernetic distribution of goods.

Why do Nationalists conveniently forget that Jews are demonstrably self-hating and self-defeating when they point out that there are Jews present in the foundation or development of modern economics and individualism? It seems like a really convenient fact that Nationalists leverage frequently (typically to tie in Jews self-designating themselves as white and then expressing anti-white sentiments to their Jewishness) so I'm not sure why they bother pretending otherwise.

That is, of course, working in the assumption that Jewishness informs their beliefs for or against a common Jewish purpose, which also assumes a lot. Modern genetic theory would instead imply that Jewish predisposition to either central planning or much more rarely radical individualism could be the product of high-IQ and pervasive personality traits that influence such beliefs somewhat deterministically, which is also another convenient fact that Nationalists leverage frequently.

I mean, I'm structuring this with a really blatant argument in mind, that people are subverting reasonable hatred for the status quo into an even more pro-government fervor "for the right reasons this time, promise, win wink", but maybe there are perfectly reasonable explanations for the hypocrisy and I just missed them, so if you have any, please help out.

What will you do after ancap?

While some people make it their whole lives, I only see politics as a means to an end. A government (or lack thereof), only exists to protect the prosperity of its people so that they can focus on their dreams and goals without worrying about the minutiae of infrastructure and invading barbarians. I think too many people forget that and come to see political bickering as the end all be all of their existence, and have no plans to venture beyond the charted waters of government. But not me, and I hope not you either.

When the revolution comes and goes and the states are all deposed and we set up and tune up the proper order of things, what will you do then? Where do you want to go once the great task is complete? For me, I want to open myself a bakery in a small town, and have it be a gathering place for all the locals to come and socialize and make friends and share experiences. And I want to find myself a wife who's sweeter than everything else in the shop.

What will you do, anons? Where will you go when you're no longer needed on the battlefield?

1.progressives/liberals/globalists who assume everyone is equal and thus has to be treated exactly the same (but of course people are too stupid to rule themselves so bureaucrats and “intellectuals” have to step in and exercise power)

2. reactionaries/nationalists/fascists who believe people are naturally inequal and that some groups, parties or traits are more suited for various tasks - such as rulership.

I stand firmly with the second party. Nothing in nature is “equal” and human populations are extremely disparate in intelligence, temperament, and culture. The ideological basis for progressivism goes back to the early 1840s when certain protestant circles in various monocultural, monoethnic countries decided - based on biblical teachings - that all people were exactly the same because they all had souls. These same circles came up with ideas like “human rights” - inherent rights given to all humans equally by a creator - that are still believed in today even though the leadership of the progressive movements has turned to atheism.

Overall there is no basis to the first party if you’re not a protestant Christian

Probably the biggest source of ridicule and mockery against the solvency, realism, and desirability of libertarianism I'm seeing right now is coming from right-wing populists, the alt-right, and paleocons furious about right-wing views and figures getting deplatformed on social media. They assert that hoping for free market fixes is delusional and shunning government regulation to force equal access on private companies is cucking to the left. The main thrust takes the form of one of the favored pillories against libertarian philosophy that "it looks great on paper but doesn't work in the real world."

But just what is the valid market-oriented solution to the informal collusion of left-wing power brokers seizing the means of communication to un-thing more and more of the right side of the political spectrum?

How does it feel knowing that one of the founding fathers is a proto-communist?

>Why . . . does Mr. Burke talk of this House of Peers, as the pillar of the landed interest? Were that pillar to sink into the earth, the same landed property would continue, and the same ploughing, sowing, and reaping would go on. The Aristocracy are not the farmers who work the land . . . but are the mere consumers of the rent.

>Personal property is the effect of society; and it is as impossible for an individual to acquire personal property without the aid of society, as it is for him to make land originally. Separate an individual from society, and give him an island or a continent to possess, and he cannot acquire personal property. He cannot be rich. So inseparably are the means connected with the end, in all cases, that where the former do not exist the latter cannot be obtained. All accumulation, therefore, of personal property, beyond what a man’s own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice, of gratitude, and of civilization, a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came.

>if we examine the case minutely it will be found that the accumulation of personal property is, in many instances, the effect of paying too little for the labour that produced it; the consequence of which is, that the working hand perishes in old age, and the employer abounds in affluence.

>he states, “There are two kinds of property. Firstly, natural property,” in the land, air, and water of the earth, which the Creator gave all humanity an equal right to, and, secondly, “artificial or acquired property,” the products of labor of which “equality is impossible,” since that would require “that all should have contributed in the same proportion, which can never be the case.” He states, “Equality of natural property is the subject of this little essay. Every individual in the world is born therein with legitimate claims on a certain kind of property, or its equivalent.”

How do we know the destruction of the low-income family hasn't been a good thing?

What I mean to say is, welfare benefits might have allowed low-income mothers to get by without drunk, violent, or abusive fathers who would have had a bad influence on the children. I'm not saying mothers don't also have those traits, but it happens to be mothers who almost always take care of them, so in reality it is the mothers who might be keeping out harmful men.

In any case, regardless of who's to blame, conflict between parents is always a bad thing in a house with children, so it's not necessarily the case that they'd be better off with the father in the house.

Of course fathers *can* provide a good influence, but this is not always the case, and it seems to me least likely to be the case in the lower income brackets.
