    I'm not on your side in general on this debate, but bravo... very bravo

    Better than raiding the trust-fund while still going deeper in dept, like we've done for the past two administrations...

    Hah thats also where I started.

    Also this isnt the be all end all, but it really helps with your dilemma for being so short.

    Also, you were a less radical libertarian previously is that right?

    You probably couldn't. If I snapped my fingers and disappeared the state tomorrow, people would immediately set themselves to creating a new one. A prerequisite for a free society is a population aware of the true nature of the state and a desire to do without one. This doesn't require changing the minds of the whole world though. That will never happen. The vast majority of people make decisions on what is practical for them. All you need is some toehold city somewhere and offer people a choice.

    I'm against small states as much as I am big ones, and we also have to remember that we are currently in the midst of the results of exactly that kind of experiment that I believe had the best possible chances for "success".

    do you consider yourself an anarchist these days?

    You are wasting your breath. The two die hard socialist, wont listen to anything proven with facts, and they deny anything that does prove they are wrong.

    No, you can choose to leave. Or if you stay, change the rules. There's nothing magic about 50% - you can change it to whatever you like. Tyranny by the government is a risk in any system - you have freedom to leave, or in a democracy, vote to change the rules. In most countries, the judiciary and the constitution are the primary restraints on state-sponsored tyranny. But they can fail, and in many countries the best option is to vote with your feet and leave. Unfortunately for hard-core libertarians, there is probably nowhere on Earth for them to be happy with the political system. Hence the OP makes the very rational suggestion that Libs should use relative rather than absolute policy evaluations - something you and others on this forum seem loathe to do.

    Maybe we both need to enroll in the INTJf discussion of Rousseau's social contract. I deny the "violence" - taxes and the resulting government services are mandatory and enforceable by violence only once you voluntarily agree to the social contract of your place of residence.

    I am comforted only by the utter impracticality of your position. That you would choose to hold such views is worrisome. Are you perhaps still a student? If so, then I can trust to time and broader experience to soften your corners. If not, then I fear you may grow old and bitter from others' unwillingness to accept your obstinate positions. "The path of the righteous..." and all that.

    That seems to risk the error of overextrapolation. Even if less government is better, it doesn't follow that no government is best. If it were, then you should be able to cite examples of strong nations with little or no government. Scoreboard?

    pix or it didn't happen. I see the problem. Every single person in the private sector is so greedy and selfish they just can't conceive of anyone accepting less pay out of a sense of community spirit.

    Bigotry is the state of mind of someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats or views other people with fear, distrust or hatred on the basis of a person's ethnicity, race, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics [such as employment in the public sector]. When you dismiss 20% of the population as uniformly parasitic, it seems a bit fucked up.

    You know you can't win when they're blinded by bigotry.

    "They are just paracites." At least we know how to spell! Well, some of us anyway. Gotta get back to sucking the life out of the economy. Ciao.
