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?

>children are property that ought to be owned by their parents and under their complete control and transferrable to others

>no libertarian believes this

all right, looks like it's time for me to defend my opinion! my first point: the above is the exact outcome that will naturally occurr the instant the government is removed from the situation. right now, children are owned by the government; like land, they are regulated by the state and can and will be confiscated if you refuse to follow the state's arbitrary rules regarding them. children are created by their parents alone and nothing else, and for property purposes clearly belong to the mother in all cases that she did not rape the father or otherwise steal his gametes.

now I'd love to hear why your solution to whether the NAP applies to children is somehow perfectly consistent and still doesn't involve government intervention at all.

Threadly reminder that it never was.

That depends on what exactly you mean. Most of us reject the idea that children are owned by the parents, but I'm of the opinion that the contract/obligation to be a guardian to a child may be bought and sold.



You're throwing shit at the wrong person. I called him a faggot and caught him on the lie(anyone who's been on the board linger than 10 minutes will notice the position that parents have no obligations before children) exactly for the reason this moralfaggot thinks only his morals apply and can be enforced in ancap and everyone who disagrees with cannot be ancap or libertarian just because. He cannot be that new so he's just a moralfag jumping on lolbert train of logical consistency and indifference to feelz while trying to keep his treasured morals to enforce, more likely through monopoly of sorts but he can because its "libertarian™".

If you look strictly at purchasing power parity per capita, only three European nations make it into the top 10 and America is above the rest except by CIA estimates (in which there are four European countries with a higher PPP per capita).

If you look at GDP per capita or PPP per capita and compare European Countries to US states, with the exceptions of Switzerland, Norway, Ireland, and a couple microstates that are used as tax havens which is why they have massive GDP per capita, most of the "rich" European countries don't even make it into the top 25, and the majority wouldn't even make it into the top 50. Actually if you remove the socialist hellholes (including the ones that make a lot of money) from the USA, the remaining states outrank basically everything in Europe outside your tax haven countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_between_U.S._states_and_sovereign_states_by_GDP_(nominal)_per_capita

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!

Freedom is the ability to do what one wills; one cannot do what one wills without power; the idea of freedom is inseparable from that of power. Freedom can only arise from the slavery of others.

>Freedom is the ability to do what one wills

Wrong. That is the definition of it that came up after the concept of freedom became eroded. I believe it was Voltaire who did so. Before him, it was regarded as obvious that freedom is the ability to do what you want with what is rightfully yours. So to steal was not seen as an expression of freedom to begin with, as the object of your theft was never yours to begin with. Likewise, flying to the moon by flapping your arms was not seen as an exercise of your freedom, as your arms did not confer the ability of flight to you. The historical conception of freedom, then, was far closer to the idea of negative freedom that most libertarians run with, whereas positive freedom is something entirely different, namely power.

What is it with egoists and their proselytizing, anyway? Why are they so eager to destruct le spook of ebil altruism when they should have no reason to care if others are "free" or not? This reminds me of the mental contortions I went through when I had my quasi-pseudo-Randian phase but still wanted to be generous.

Tripfag is literally the most stupid, obnoxious and disgusting poster on 8ch and is not really accountable cunt shilling for ancom by copying anything liberals say while trying to throw Stirner memes because leftists are that stupid. All while whining about morals at the same time.

>Why are they so eager to destruct le spook of ebil altruism when they should have no reason to care if others are "free" or not?

Because reasons. One can find it comforting, one can find it interesting to improve his understanding or just does learn and came the the egoism as a conclusion. It's not like you're doing it for other reasons than to stroke your ego, get your ass praised and be in moral superiority position or feel clever, even if only for a moment. Don't get full of yourself, moralfag, your tendencies are very known and are not very compatible with ancap. Even more so, ancap theory is on a completely different axis and your self-inclusion in it will not be tolerated.

>Ancaps are just middle to upper middle class goobers

Unlike commies, I suppose, who are all proper working class men? In fact, most ideologues are from the middle or upper middle class, you won't find many great philosophers in a shoe factory. But we don't claim to represent a "class consciousness", unlike most left-wing ideologies.

>who fall into edgyness but think outright neo-nazism is too mainstream, so they worship Pinochet instead.

Or maybe we are reacting to the totally-not-edgy communists, SJW's and neocons who tell us daily that we must be punished for being class enemies/white men/terrorists?

>None of them know dick about business to actually be a businessman or merchant

Which kinda destroys the idea that we are acting out of our "class interest", if you ask me, but let's just ignore that lmao.

>and most have more than likely have never held a job/had to support themselves.

In my experience, ancaps are actually among the least likely to be NEET's. I cannot remember one ancap, in fact, who is just sitting on his ass all day.

>Cuts spending :^)

Actually, I'm only willing to pay for my nigger servant part-time, and I'd rather give him money to feed and clothe himself because doing it for him would involve using my more valuable man-hours shopping at the discount grocery store. Better to just give him the money and let him do the coupon-clipping himself, more efficient that way. And cheaper for me as well, as I'm only paying a part-time wage and he can go work another job for the rest.

I'm not entirely sure how I got 19% communism. If I had to guess, I would say it was the questions on union behavior like mass strikes being assigned as "communist" somehow, things which I naturally support since they're free and autonomous social organization, the exact functional unit of a free market. It might have also assigned "A good policy is a pragmatic policy without ideology." a commie score?

If you hit "absolutely agree" to everything you get an exactly even 50-50 split in every stat, but there were only a few questions even vaguely related to communism, so I'm not sure.

Neat test, though. It nailed the fancy little badges ("anarchist" and "pragmatic").

>look at test

>first question

This is why 99% of political values quizzes are trash. They give out these non sequitur, denotative statements in place of questions, then try to make assumptions about what you believe from your reaction to a factual statement. The only correct answer to this question is "agree," because it's practically a tautology–society is by definition made up of individuals, so obviously it must follow that a change in the individual will induce a change in society. That's not the correct question to ask, the correct question is "Given that individuals can change society, the correct course of action is….". But because that's not the question being asked, but this shitty non-sequitur instead, the testee is forced to assume that his reaction to this indisputable statement will affect his final score. The immediate reaction to this thought is to start playing mind games with the author, trying to decide how he thinks certain kinds of people will respond to this, e.g. does he think that only those who desire to control the direction of "society" will select the first option? Political tests should only ask the following:

>what are your ideals

>what is the correct policy response to issue X

Anything else is a cheap attempt at pop psychology and not conducive to producing accurate results.
