As long as there is a market...for anything...
That demand will be filled...somehow...

Which is exactly why government and the idea of a monopoly on security being better than competition in security is absurd.

I don't have a problem with vegetarianism, because there are some health benefits, as long as you don't go overboard. The goal should be to be healthy, not just not killing animals. That is a stupid goal.

As long as its between two consenting parties  :lol:

Dolphins have no problem consenting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphins


I don't think anyone should be appalled when you do so.
They shouldn't jail him. Animals are property.  I don't know about people not being legitimately disgusted.

Animals are just part of humanity's family. They generally do not have the ability to communicate with humans, and that is why they can legitimately be owned. Just like a lion can amorally eat a zebra, a human can amorally keep a lion.

Why should people be disgusted with love?


Other.
I believe politics is viable damage control and antipolitics is a viable solution.

Absolutely.


I don't think either are particularly viable in terms of changing the world. (for more liberty)

I don't think that statement has any basis in reality.

As far far as changing your life for the better anti-politics/black market stuff might work, it really depends how risk averse you are and what your skills and abilities are.

It is much simpler than that. Really all you have to do is want liberty now, and be willing to help other liberty activists by putting down your own money on it.

Yesterday I told my friend Bubba, a homeless man, that I would provide him with money if he would spread the message of liberty. He agreed.

Politics would obviously only have a negative effect on you personally, even if you win the freedom you can achieve won't be worth the effort so you'll still lose. (unless you're corrupt.

I don't think it is even necessary. Remember Rothbard talking about the rebellions convincing the Soviet tanks to fight for them? We can do this on a one on one basis with cops. You must convince them they, you, and society would be better off if they did not aggress against you. It is definitely possible. Do not resist, this is going to happen because of the interweb, and there is nothing you can do to stop human enlightenment.

Wow, Brasky. Your arguments reek of desperation. You should try and come up with something more concrete than simply positing any 'What if?' scenario that people have been saying about the free market from the beginning about how it can't work because of these scenarios.

You need to advance your argument, or dismiss it.

You must ask the question: How can aggressive interaction between individuals ever improve the situation if humans are able to take into account the non-need for aggression and rise above the incorrect belief that government is necessary?

I am confident if we come across even more advanced life forms, we will have the same name for our ideas.
I think that if we do ever come across intelligent life, anything more than the most superficial of similarities would be astonishing. Sharing names for the same thing seems so unlikely as to be statistically impossible.

You don't think there are universal languages and ideas based upon mathematics?

I love the RLC. There are so many Republicans who are disgusted with the party, are definitely not in agreement with the Democratic platform, and have the typical 'stoner' opinion of the Libertarians. The RLC is the perfect place to go.
The RLC is nothing but an agency to try and persuade libertarians to vote for dumb-ass normal Republican candidates. Their history speaks for itself.
I think they have done more than the Libertarian party as far as bringing about actual positive change.
Evidence?
Ron Paul.
I don't think Ron Paul can be attributed to the RLC. Sure, he's their most prominent member, but correlation is not causation. What success he did have is due far more to his base of dedicated activists than anything else.

He is a member of the caucus, and if he achieves liberty, then the caucus has achieved liberty.

I'm hoping that future generations become more open minded and less boxed into a "party".  Take all the good ideas from each party minus the bad ones and this country will be a better place.

Awesome ideas. Humanity is not limited to the feeble understanding of the world that our ancestors faced. We now have the ability to communicate with others to such a degree that our knowledge has expanded from wanting to be evidence based to a crystallized form of Ultimate knowledge agnosticism. I am confident if we come across even more advanced life forms, we will have the same name for our ideas.

Agnosticism: There is possibility?
My View: There is possibility.

Until you accept the probability that I am right, you will die before we advance humanity.

I am working on the problems of Agorist theory, and how Ukagnostism and convincing people on a one on one basis is superior and achievable.

http://AdvanceTheArgument.com/ - Always being updated.
What in the universe makes you think agorism excludes convincing people on a one-on-one basis?

That's not what I think. I think Agorism has problems that Ukagnosticism acknowledges and refutes. I will work on my argument today. I hope I will be able to convince you to abandon Agorism in favor of my better theory, which incorporates all of the good in Agorism, and rejects all of the bad.

Doesn't that seem reasonable?


But you ARE a dolphin fucker.

What's wrong with dolphin fucking?

And no, I haven't confessed to having sex with dolphins yet.

I don't think anyone should be appalled when you do so.

Still, I called this post "Baby steps" because the road to liberty can be a long one. There was a time when I called myself a Republican and it took me a long time (and Harry Brown) before I realized that the GOP was part of the problem - not the solution. I satisfy myself with starting pointing people in the right direction occasionally and coming back to give them a nudge once in a while. That, and I help them with their heating and AC problems.  :)

I don't know if I agree with you. The road to liberty is really only based on logic and evidence. If they want to ignore the theory, they can, but I think they genuinely want the best from their future, and if they are honest with themselves about that, perhaps they will benefit from AdvanceTheArgument.com.

I don't think that anything that falls short of liberty for everyone starting the 1st of next month is a complete failure.

Liberty will take as long as you yourself want it to take. The harder you work to convince people on an individual basis, the faster liberty will be achieved.


I wonder if you use government water to bathe yourself.
Indeed. I even drive on government roads. And walk on government sidewalks.

There is nothing wrong with that. When humanity as a whole comes together in favor of my idea of agnosticism, we will spontaneously take control over the property rights that exist after government is abandoned.

AlexLibman's hot/cold relationship to FTL were a topic of discussion a few months ago.
Let's get back to snow pen0rs.

 :lol:

I still think it is important to reach out to past AMPlifiers and try to get them to AMP again. It is a worthy cause.

Why do you say that?


Come on, FTL is a great investment for liberty!
Sakal/CAI certainly thinks so.
Do you?
I think using government airwaves to spread your message is a bit hypocritical.

Consider this:

The airwaves should be treated like any other finite resource that has a definable area of influence. Radio really is just an extradimensional resource supply. And because property rights are based on improvements, changes, and exclamation of ownership, if you are the first to put up a radio station you own the right to stop others from destroying your signal inside your range. That means that just like how grocery stores are competitive, along with every other type of business, radio stations could be the same way. They would be able to legitimately shut down any violators of their radio property rights.

Another view that opposes my argument of radio as an extradimensional resource supply is to look at this like shutting down people's pirate stations is itself aggressive, and is a violation of physical property rights. However, my sophistication allows for an increase of technological development that inevitably occurs whenever rational yet evolving minds collate together and advance toward the future. The technological development that is our society occurs whenever property rights based on original appropriation are followed. In other words, if you disagree with my sophistication, society will pass you by anyway, obey my correct objective morality, and realize that original appropriation of radio is legitimate. Your morality will be outdated, and will fade away as believers pass on, just as it has done again and again, from Zeus to Thor.

Thus, because of being seen as aggressive action, violations of radio property rights would be handled by private dispute resolution organizations, and we would be a lot better off.

I don't know how difficult it would be to get rid of the FCC, but as far as I know they don't do that much in the way of helping the medium of radio.
