quote:

1. You only have freedoms until they infringe on the freedom of others.


I don't like this definition as every publicly exercised freedom, by definition, infringes on another's rights.

For example:

Freedom of speech vs. Freedom of Listening

In other words, in public, we would have no real freedom.

quote:

2. Animals cannot legally give consent and sexual relations could as animal abuse which is illegal.


Animals can't give consent legally because of the current legal definition of consent in many states, not all. When did we start applying human standards of legality to animals?

Why not apply that standard everywhere? They don't consent to being displaced from their homes, slaughtered, and eaten. Is that animal cruelty too?

quote:

3. Incest is illegal under state, not federal laws. As gross as it is, I have no problem with it being legal as long as the rules of consent are governed. However, the reason incest is often illegal in most states is that when incest does happen, it is NOT consensual the vast majority of the time.


So the reasoning for the state law's creation doesn't apply when there is consent yet the law still applies?

You would be interacting on private land with the owner's permission.

If you were on their private land by permission and there is no public land...then you'd have to get permission to go everywhere for anything. Seems like a hassle.

How free would we really be again?

How about a self-ban bet?


Why don't you just link the post and prove your point...why would you suffer bannage or stern words for simply linking to the factual archived post....perhaps its because the post doesn't actually say what you claim?

I sent the link to a couple of posters who emailed me asking me for it.

So, do you want to bet or not? 30 day self ban?

Eta: I'm about to leave to go to the baseball game. Either agree to the bet or slink away and stfu.

Yes and yes.

Incest would simply have to be consensual.

Beastiality would simply have to be consented to by the aninals owner.

can't be called bestiality without having the best amirite?









But seriously, at what point do you become uncomfortable with freedom?

The thing I don't get is the following: if there is some freak out there that has sex with his pets, he is deluded enough to do it whether it is illegal or not.

So the question comes to you think that people should be prosecuted for that. I suppose it would probably fall under cruelty to animals for most libertarians so it's a non issue.

Libertarian doesn't mean no laws at all

Just limit those laws as much as possible and focus on protection of property and civil liberties.
