  • How to homestead a national park...

    No fuckin clue.. My brain + Rothbard = How do you mix labor with a bunch of land that you, essentially, do not want to mix labor with, but conserve the current state of. I don't think this is impossible, but I was just meditating and contemplating (getting baked) and I just can't seem to think...

  • Homesteading: Axiom or Principle?

    I get how self-ownership is axiomatic. I don't get how homesteading is axiomatic, yet I often hear it referred to as the "homesteading axiom" rather than the "homesteading principle." Is this it an axiom, or are some libertarians trying to prove too much?

  • Re: Weakest aspect of libertarianism?

    [quote user="Sage"]What do you think is the most "ineptly defended" aspect of libertarianism? Personally, I would say NAP and homesteading.[/quote] It is the NAP that is poorly defended because libertarians commonly think they can "prove" it as a universal rule. They can...

  • Re: Homesteading

    [quote user="R.J. Moore II"]Likewise, some Europeans actually homesteaded some land in America and were expropriated. Whenever discussing issues of law, justice and property one must never forget the specificity of individuals and property. [/quote] Same applies to South Africa. Their were...
