Indeed.  Given the fragmented and multi-threaded nature of my thought processes, most of the time I'm not even the smartest person in the room when I'm alone, especially when even mildly sober.  :shock:

But this has nothing to do with mere smarts, it's just a matter of exposing people to something they've never been exposed to and dealing with their initial shock reactions.  When you get past that, you do have to make good arguments: child abuse, intellectual property rights, rights of adult retards in mental institutions, etc, or, as in my case, the perceived threat of psychopath trillionaires manufacturing bio/nano-tech weapons.  (Don't reply with debate points here, see the JREF thread for specifics, and if you would: please sign up and join the discussion!)

And since some of us Liberty Theorists will be better with some topics than others, cooperation when debating on other forums could be useful.  I'm sure any one of us can tackle any issue, but when it comes to putting the bestest arguments forward - some specialization does help.

So that's the point of this thread: provide links to where Government Apologists gang up on you.  Needless to say, no one is expected to help anyone else unless joining that discussion benefits yourself and your own desire to debate.

I'm trying to figure out why anyone would ever deliberately strike up a debate with these folks.

I think it brought out some good arguments, don't you?

So, how DO we keep some nutty trillionaire from building bio-weapons?

I support supervillainy, so I have no problem with a psychopathic trillionaire building bio-weapons.

Let's hope he moves on to building functional mecha.

OK, that's the Retarded Anarcho-Psychopath (RAP) position...

Is anyone here interested in helping define and defend the Anarcho-Capitalist one?

I just signed up to the board....  It's pretty scary what these people are talking about about...  The guy that keeps threatening to ignore u is an idiot.  This is why America is dead....  the final nail will be when alfred e neuman, I mean obama, wins...  All I get out of it is the following:  People can't be trusted, Government is necessary to help keep people out of poverty, etc....  what a bunch of douchebags...

It's a financial loser.  Even nutty trillionaires don't have enough money to waste murdering people, or plotting to do so.  Only governments have the free money stolen from taxpayers that's necessary to fund that crap.

Yes, I've made that argument there, and I'm sitting on a more detailed explanation on how, even if only 5% fiercely boycott you, your ability to do business goes down mighty quick.  But even if all of the earth's major financial transactions are "open-source" and monitored by paranoid people like me to make sure nothing close to a government can ever arise again, won't some of the richest people still be able to stash away some gold (or something else of inherent value) a bit at a time, and then use it to finance some mad scientists in a secret lab somewhere, like an evil version of Galt's Gulch?  True, that would merely mean a reemergence of governments as we have them now, since you can't get much value from a slave unless you trick him into producing and paying taxes, but still...  What other safeguards can we think of?
