Powerman is not gonna debate me on any political issue. But if he'd like to he could certainly start a new thread on a topic of his choice and we shall have a conversation.

This is true. That's why we have had so few disagreements.

Specifically what inane shite are you talking about?

LOL all of your personal stories that have nothing to do with anything

Also your comment seems to suggest that young people are all stupid which is clearly not the case

Yep...that's all he does...should you engage him in an argument all he does is latch on to some irrelevant turn of phrase and ask obvious gotcha questions that a high-school debate team kid would try....He's really just an older version of mograyback (or whatever his name is).

There is no such thing as a 'young' Libertarian. It takes thought, debate, and study to become Libertarian. That's why there are no teenagers or women at the Libertarian Convention.



That is one of the dumber statements I have ever seen.

Someone doesn't know what Libertarian means. Either Reason or the youngsters.


Reason is a longstanding libertarian mag funded by the Koch Bros....I don't think they have a problem with what libertarianism means...perhaps self-proclaimed libertarians here have trouble understanding that libertarianism is multi-layered and when voting for a lesser-evil some may choose the promise of social-liberalism by the Dems (though false and dumb expectation) over the lack of it found in the Rep party....knowing full-well that neither really are fiscally conservative.

Most libertarians I know did not vote....they view it as pointless.

The OP was talking about younger people than you. I have no doubt that you understand Lib. But I have encountered teenagers who claim to be Libertarian - Marxists. They are too young to understand how stupid that is.

They don't vote because they can't and weren't part of the poll because of that fact.

Ah, so you have never watched any of the Libertarian Conventions on CSPAN? Really? Then you are speaking from a position of ignorance. There are no teenagers and there are no women. It is what it is. Not my fault.

You are talking to some real fricking dumb teenagers then

It isn't hard to understand basic tenets of a philosophy regardless of age

So your assumption is because you have anectdotal evidence from a Libertarian Convention that since there were no women or teenagers there is no such thing as a young liberarian or a woman libertarian for that matter.

That is quite dumb as well.

Wrong. Most teenagers don't know how to spell philosophy.

I'm sure your line of work lends itself to access of bright young students.

Zach met a teenager at the Starbucks who told him he was a libertarian-marxist; therefore, most teenagers are dumb and don't know anything about philosophy or libertarianism. That's Zach!

In what respects do they have a problem and why do you believe it to be a shitty pub?

They actually call themselves libertarian socialists, not marxists.

And they took it from noam chomsky. Who took the charge on it from a movement in the 1800s, with roots in the anarchy movement.

Its the concept of social anarchy, which is quite different than the capitalist anarchy that you probably advocate. Basically there is no leader, all decisions are communal, no property, but also no rules. I think its unworkable, but its the current banner for the anarchists who protest at WTO and the like.
