Criminal trespass, and later, refusal to be fingerprinted.

I guess that should sound silly. She had permission from the (then) lawful owner, and I guess we're required by law
to provide fingerprints on demand now.
but, it's the govenrment, so what does it matter eh?

Maybe the question should be given to the cops doing the arresting. Why did they arrest Lauren?
What crime did she commit?

I am LDS
I know this is way offtopic, but I swear, every time I see "LDS", I think of the Star Trek movie where they go to San Francisco and Kirk is apolgizing for Spock's behavior:
  "He was at Berkeley in the '60s... did a little too much 'LDS'"

and the fact that he'd just done a mind meld on a pregnant whale.

I noticed that he says in his system there will be plenty of land that is not occupied if you want to homestead, but
in no other system will land be unoccupied.
What happens if all land is occupied and people didn't have to pay for it, but are paying economic rent. Ben still has no
right to exist in any given place, but he does have money. I guess if thats what makes him happy.
So, he is selling his right to exist, and in the meantime forcing other people to do the same (the 'excluded') as they
are being paid for the land they can no longer occupy.
Life would suck bad.


not "plenty of land" but rather land on the margins...

the best we can do is this - no matter where anyone else chooses to exist those being excluded (whether they legally occupy land or not) will not economically disadvantage me (tax my labor).

And do-si-do. Spin yer pardner round and round, dance aroudn the issue so you never have to give a straight answer.

why wouldn't people willingly share the economic rent with their neighbors if they new it would strengthen their own property rights to their labor when their neighbors shared with them?

Well, if you can con them into willingly handing over their money, that's one thing. Good luck with that!

In reality, it is done with guns and bloodshed.

"But. but. but. If you want property you enslave me! You are a monopoly (which means you own ALL the land) and I am excluded. Now where's my check, bitch? I gotta go load up on lotto tickets and cheap booze."

Do you really think that your economic rent funded government with it's "justified" use of force is anything but the law of the jungle?

the economic rent goes to your neighbors not the government...

the government is rightfully using force to protect those individuals being excluded to their absolute right to the fruits of their labor.

"Pay your taxes or we'll kill you"
How wonderfully libertarian.


what is the difference in a libertarian anarchy?

pay your economic rent or we will kill you?

Hey, I can deal with people without having a big fat government do it for me.
Perpetually unemployed cowards like you have to hide behind the skirt of your nanny state to
do it for you.
I'll lurk, and if you come up with anything new to add, I'll be here. Or maybe I'll just keep
lurking. I'm no good at this sort of thing and your idea of discourse is like hitting people with a fish.
A really stinky fish.
After slogging through all the threads you've cluttered up, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

or you could rely on yourself to do the job. If the defense of your rights runs up against another person's assertion of theirs, then your DRO's will work it out or you can voluntarily choose an arbitrator, or you can fight it out in the street

in otherwords no rules (voluntary or otherwise) but the law of the jungle...

if I voluntarily consent to a rule and then am judged (by whom?) to be in violation yet don't consent - it is law of the jungle time.

You consent and then you don't consent? Like John Kerry?
