Could someone please explain to me why some posts are rated and why others aren't? Also how do you rate?
You can rate a topic using the stars on the left side of the page, right above the original post.
Don't allow leftists to play games with definitions! Some of the
libertarian-leaning leftists at this forum will try to redefine
"left-wing" back to its original defition (Third Estate, limited
government, free-markets, laissez-faire reforms, etc.). Fine! We
non-leftists can't stop them from using their own personal definitions;
they can use whatever labels they want to describe any concept they
want.However, they have the audacity
to then use their personal definition of "left-wing" (remember, the original
definition, which is no longer valid) to prove that modern leftists are
more libertarian than modern rightists! They will say that
libertarianism is "inherently leftist" (again, using the original, no
longer valid definition), and use that to insist that we should prefer
and side with modern leftists over modern rightists.
Question their motives.
