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.


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.


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?

No it's not. The bread and circus is getting better and better, but economic freedom and the ability to pursue happiness keeps getting worse and worse. It's like you're trapped in some fancy giant prison and you comply with the guards as long as you get good food to eat, fun toys to entertain you, and cool cellmates to chat with, because you're either a high time-preference nigger or a conformist bugman.

>national-socialist bugman calls others leftists



This article is retarded, not because it's making often demonstrably wrong counterarguments when it actually matters, but rather because it seems to include the means to debunk its points within each of the offending passages.

Ignoring the first two- they're broadly correct counterarguments even if they're debunking blatant strawmans-

>Stirner was not in favor of free markets and competition!

<It originated, you know, in persons becoming free of all personal rule. Is a competition “free” which the State, this ruler in the civic principle, hems in by a thousand barriers?

Stirner is arguing that "free competition" is a natural ideal by which humans arrange themselves, but that it cannot exist within the context of a state.

He later completes this thought:

<"[…]Against your person there is nothing to be said, but the thing, the doctor’s diploma, is lacking. And this diploma I, the State, demand. Ask me for it respectfully first; then we will see what is to be done.”

but the Author sees fit to claim that this passage somehow debunks Stirner's generally positive view on an authentic free market and autonomous competition.

>Stirner was not opposed to a market-less society!

In the very first line:

<“People introduced competition because they saw it as well-being for all; they agreed upon it and experimented collectively with it. This thing, this isolation and separation, is itself a product of association, agreement, shared convictions, and it didn’t just isolate people, but also connected them.

A "market-less" society, therefore, is necessarily tyrannical: if there is no state to prevent them, people will compete and trade in their powers.

<Someone will object that one seeks it at the expense of others. But one won’t seek it at the expense of others, because others no longer want to be such fools as to let anyone live at their expense.”

Neetsocs are always buttmad at ancaps because they keep getting BTFO by our superior arguments, while ancaps generally couldn't give a fuck about them. The meme is extremely relevant for such situations, and especially when you catch them whining and crying about us on other boards.

>Can you explain the last one?

Cows, chickens, sheep and pigs are all animals that are very unlikely to go extinct because you are allowed to own them and farm them for their derived products, and as you do so, you breed them and replenish their populations. If people were allowed to do the same with tigers, elephants and all other endangered species, there would be no need for anyone to hunt them down to extinction in the wild. If you weren't allowed to own cows because commie environmentalists began "protecting" them, why would you breed them (since you can't own them) instead of killing them for what their worth and selling the banned products which are now at a high price?

>doesn't want shit parents to be able to sell their children

Bad moms will always be bad moms, but forcing a kid to stay with a bad mom, rather than someone who is even willing to pay money for them is much worse.

Yes, but breaking one wouldn't be a criminal act, because you can't sign away your future will. However, firms would encourage compliance through demanding collateral, which you would agree to forfeit in the event of a breach.



Is a contract like "if i do X i'll have to pay you Y" viable though, or do you have to offer a collateral beforehand? Is it legal to demand payment based on the contract and would not paying it be counted as theft?



>Is a contract like "if i do X i'll have to pay you Y" viable though

Yes, because failure to follow through on that kind of contract would result in theft. That's generally the litmus test for whether a contract is criminally enforceable in ancapistan: If breach of contract would directly result in theft, i.e. the loss of property of one or more actors, then the contract is enforceable through the courts. If violating the contract would not result in theft, then you can't use the court to enforce it, and one must resort to other means of encouraging the other party to stay to his word–collateral, bad reputation, and so on. Rothbard's essay on the subject sums it up pretty well:

I was somewhat impressed by that meme until I saw it was a thumbnail.



Without intellectual property, similarly convenient alternatives would emerge, without any return to the creator. Also, maybe more people would get software from other sources if it was legal.



>similarly convenient alternatives would emerge

From whom? The only reason piracy has any allure at all is because it's free. Someone who goes through the trouble of setting up a "convenient" service would expect compensation for his work, and anyone that's willing to pay for media is already buying it legitimately. It's a market that doesn't exist.



>The only reason piracy has any allure at all is because it's free. Someone who goes through the trouble of setting up a "convenient" service would expect compensation for his work, and anyone that's willing to pay for media is already buying it legitimately.

Right now the services need to give money to the creators. The alternatives won't (and the original won't either).

Would women look like that under libertarianism?



Similar to now, though probably a bit better due to ease of access to plastic surgery and lack of negative selection. Other creatures like modern single mothers would probably cease to exist or be pushed away into some shithole regions/places due to lack of welfare and state funding and aforementioned negative selection.



>pushed away

As a whole, women will likely look much more feminine again as the civic religion of feminism and the state disappears and the church rises to prominence once again; traditional roles won't be frowned upon quite as much anymore.


>due to ease of access to plastic surgery

Even if plastic surgery is cheaper, I imagine it would be less prevalent once this degenerate, vain society dies and the libertines are purged.

How is this shit even remotely far-right?


It's not, Not Sees were the original big-brained centrists who called for a Third Way. Things have just gotten so fucked that even centrism is considered "far right" nowadays. Just look at Trump, policy-wise he's a 70s New York Democrat, but compared to what passes for the left these days he's an ultra-right radical.


We've already plumbed the depths of what fascistic states look like and found them wanting: outside of obvious war-time concessions, they look an awful lot like moderate democracies with particularly popular leaders.

Until the Era of Great Works finally commences, every government is a nuclear silhouette of what a post-fascist state actually looks like and should be treated as such.

Perhaps the closest to a true 'far-right' endgame are North Korea and Eritrea, but the minds behind those hellholes are shortsighted enough that they utterly fail to leverage the carnage they leave in their wake. They chase idealistic versions of a normal libertine life but fail as their markets and methods fail to match that of even basic Enlightenment design.

That is not what far-right looks like, it's the step immediately before it, every bit the transitional state to true Fascism as Socialism is for Communism, both entrenching a single central power.

The true dichotomy is revealed there: the left supersedes massive power structures to meet the will of many as best it may, while the right is a unified will that supersedes and controls the many for the pursuit of a massive power structure.

(increasingly) Fascist Germany in its day made great strides through the Autobahn, but the United States and others that followed suit demonstrated that the "Great Work" of yesterday is the "Standard Affair" of today in the form of massive networks of highways that dwarf the original. Now, collectively, countries pool resources to produce new wonders at a snail's pace.

This is inferior even to the empires of history, who in the eyes of their emperors saw monuments built in a day and last for an eternity, still impressive but only in the sense that "these people accomplished something that was seemingly impossible for their time."

A modern far-right state should go out of its way to violate every code of ethics and human right imaginable if they stand in the way of the Space Elevator or an Orbital Ring. If it's the free market stopping them from overturning mountains and putting livable spaces for hundreds of thousands of people in their place, utterly destroy it.

>pyramid-building as in any shape right wing

>pyramid-building propels a nation forward

Hi Keynes.


NEETsoc is a big fucking joke. A form of totalitarianism superseded by more effective methods generations ago. Now it only serves as a convenient antithesis to trick vulnerable, dogmatic retards.



Keynes is an economist and principally concerned with the economy, nothing I discussed cares in the slightest about markets or economics in general.

That's the split that makes sense. If leftists pursue more emergent and uncontrolled structures (like the free market) and far-left thought wants them to be totally uncontrolled and tempered, then right-wing thought should be characterized by a rejection of emergent and uncontrolled structures (like regulations and arbitrary law) and the far-right would be a total eclipse of that paradigm.

A far-right country wouldn't build a pyramid to "propel a nation forward", that's dumb. What is 'forward'? What's the point of 'moving forward'? It's not a race, so much as left-wing thought's focus on efficiency and therefore meritocracy has made it one.

A far-right country would build those pyramids to scar the earth, and the moon right with it. Because in a thousand years, when all have forgotten the rest of us, that country will still be talked about in hushed tones and with great discomfort.

The human race has many scars from past, almost exclusively from prototype far-right countries. They existed before they could fulfill basic human needs effortlessly, but still managed to construct their arbitrary and single-minded legacy. We speak of the Romans and the Mongols who overturned our languages and broke our genes on their back to such a degree the effects are still obvious today, of the Colosseum and Trajan's market, not impressive by today's standards but incredibly difficult by contemporary ones, and more importantly, permanent and lasting. We do not speak of the caliphates, who left little but religious relics (honoring an emergent and uncontrolled institution) and devastation in their wake, or much of the Achaemenid who for all their people and all their land only managed to build a mausoleum at a tenth the size of the largest of the Pyramids, the one at Giza, built two thousand years prior.

You will know what a far-right country looks like when it stares down modern problems that others struggle to address through half-measures and market means and says 'I will fix that and I would love to see anything try and stop me'. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

> 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.


It should be noted that this is not new behavior for G*rman women look into the sexual mores of the Weimar republic. without the firm hand of an authoritarian leader the G*ermanic quickly reverts to their barbarian roots the modern day "migrant crisis" is perfectly understandable within the context of ancient german culture: it was tradition for men at war to bring their women along to stand at the sidelines with the winner taking the losers women as his/their own G*rman women are genetically wired for Migrants Welcome

Goblins are violent NPCs, so they're more like antifa. I don't think ancaps could ever agree on enough to even form that kind of gang.

Just not throw all of you into this if you care about standing tall afterwards, and do what you enjoy and want. It's not about absolutes, measure how much do you care, how much do you wish to risk it, how much can you let go overall, cut it i parts to move towards the goal and add them as you gain trust or become more confident in this activity and in her. If you wish, just do not show all your wealth and power level and move in small steps. Just like an investment except you get pleasure, help and company for your time, energy and money - measure and compare losses and gains like you would with any other and decide. If you cannot - give it a try, even if you get rejected, lose some money or break up with a scandal - you lose more in negative emotions rather then in anything of material value.



yes i have already mental problems and i fear it might cause a lot of suffering. behaving rationally, as you wrote, is a good idea of course but i fear i might lose rationality because no other attractive girl has in last years been iterested in me and i might "overinvest"
