I can promise you no libertarian marxist would visit starbucks, well maybe to burn it. He does live in S-port, which to paraphrase luke skywalker...If there's a bright center to the universe, you're in the city that it's farthest from.

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.



Nah, I was downtown Seattle during the WTO protest and they don't understand the term anarchy no more than they understand Libertarianism.

I've seen some small communes and most fall apart for the same reason we all suspect they would.

Well this is what chomsky pitches. And he is the closest thing they have for a spokesperson.

I would tend to agree that they don't understand what anarchy is, or they have a very skewed perspective. I think its just angry young men. And women that want to frick angry young men.

Yeah, every "collective" i have seen ends up falling apart. people are stupid and need leaders.

There is a religious commune not far from here but I suspect they aren't nearly as equal as they once were. Used to have a half dozen locations and they are down to one, with a couple dozen people.

I make a thread about young libertarians supporting Obama over Romney. You take that and decide that most of the country values social liberty over economic liberty. You don't see your fault?

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.


Very good point. Also, for the past two elections the republican nominee has been 65 or over. Maybe they should try to groom someone younger to run at the top of the ticket.

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. Edit: Just found this on Rand Paul. I agree with him. Just vote 'present'


Yes because it takes a genius to understand libertarianism,and it is patently unfair to ask a libertarian exactly what a truly libetarian society would look like. Riiiiiiggghhhhhhttttt.....

All societies are collectives, and all socieities thus far in our collective history have ebventually collapsed. It hasn't anything to do with people being stupid, it has to do with people being people. It is in our nature to want more than someone else and some of us are leaders and some of us are followers and society falls apart when the greed that is inherent in all humans becomes all consuming and we have a charismatic leader who sales us on the idea of building an empire.....

I wouldn't consider allowing women the choice of whether or not to abort or permitting more access to the marriage contract to be an intrusion. Purely, you'd prefer gov't out of marriage all together, but if they are in access should be open.

No. The poll has absolutely nothing to do with Libertarians, other than the dumb shite title of the article.

re: Reason: Young libertarians supported Obama over Romney by 10%


Am I the only one who noticed that young "conservatives" also supported Obama over Romney at a 4% mark?

And that the number of libertarians polled was 30?



Why not just post a facebook poll? It would be about as accurate.
