:-? Well thats a very general statment!.
First of all please be so kind as to define what you mean by libertarian.
There are least two versions of libertarinism floating around if not more.
There are left wing libertarians like Anarchists which would like to live in some kind of decentralised commune or separatist fairyland which is what i presume you are talking about here!.
Then there are right wing libertarians in the vein of Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher or GWB,Cheney, Rice or wolferwitz whos only kind of liberty seems to be freedom for corporations and military to rape and pillage as they see fit.
So take your pick :-?
Ozziecynic, I thought you and your
LaRouche philosophy were gone from this
site forever. Glad to see your spelling
is much improved since you "left for good".
LaRouchies don't like real libertarians
because they are the only ones capable
of accurately identifying and labeling
the evilness of LaRouche's ideas.
Ozziecynic you do not even know what the
libertarian philosophy entails. Libertarians
completely reject the left/right dichotomy
or categories. The typical "left-winger"
is in favor of freedom for personal issues
but wants to restrict freedom in economic matters. The typical "right-winger" is in favor
of freedom in economic matters but wants to restrict freedom in the area of personal issues.
The libertarian simply believes in freedom both
in economic and personal areas and rejects
the divide-and-conquer contradictions
of the left and right wing.
Also a libertarian believes that
ALL TAXATION IS THEFT and therefore
will not take-on a government job
or pay contract. They would not even be getting
a socialised ( stolen )
State education like you are now.
A libertarian believes that anyone can
do whatever they want in life so long
as one does not forcibly interfere
in the rights of others. This is called
the libertarian non-aggression principle.
The politicians you mentioned
cannot be and are not libertarians.
There is no such thing as "Anarchy"
because the only way to have "no rule"
which is what an-archy means is to have no
people. Better to call it multi-archy or poly-archy.
A libertarian believes that the only
legitimate function, if any, of the State
is to enforce the prosecution of crimes.
