  • Re: Kokesh plans loaded open carry rally in DC, where it's illegal

    I just sent this to Adam Kokesh. If he replies i'll be sure to post them both on my blog. Adam Kokesh, May 9, 2013 I have been a longtime follower and viewer of nearly every YouTube video you have ever produced. I always tuned in to your show on RT, and I continue to enjoy the ways in which you present...

  • Steven Pinker: Decline of violence, due to modern state?

    He says something to this regard in the following video: See 11:00ff forward. He also says that anarchy is an excentive for violence. I haven't fact checked everything, but I am actually pretty skeptical about this. He also gives other reasons.

  • Re: To AnCaps: are minarchists really libertarians?

    It is the starting point of what is and is not allowed in the legal world. If you believe that it is acceptable for a human being to aggress against another human being, then you are not a libertarian. If you believe it is not acceptable, then all that is needed is for you to work out your cognitive...

  • Leftist anarchists love violence

    I keep seeing posts about lefty anarchists attacking police and causing riots on these kinds of blogs: Do you think there's a link between...

  • Was the original Boston Tea Party an act of violence?

    though the tax on tea was unjust (as are all taxes), wasn't the destruction of private property (i.e. tea) an act of violence? isn't it also true that the participants in the original tea party were protesting taxation without representation, and not taxation or the scale of taxation in general...

  • A scenario and a follow up question

    Imagine that you live in a non-descript house in a non-descript town in a non-descript state. You're sitting in your chair, drinking a beer, when there's a knock on the door. You open it up to find a man pointing a gun at your head. He says " I'm collecting money for the new opera house...

  • Re: Stopping dictators

    We have covered this, but it keeps going round in circles within this topic. I already agreed that of course, you can defend yourself. I'm not sure I see what point you're trying to make? Self-defence is not 'violence'. The initiation of force is violent. Protecting yourself or your child...

  • Re: Stopping dictators

    I never once stated that one could repel a force like that. But the force in the first place is the fault of limitless state power. Also you do not HAVE TO fight violence with violence. It's an individual choice, don't generalise like that. I think you're stuck in a chicken and egg scenario...

  • Re: Stopping dictators

    I sort of find myself mostly agreeing with JonBostwick here after reading through this thread. Nothing can ever justify dropping a nuclear weapon no matter how dire the situation. I don't think people really understand the implications of what their saying when they defend things like that. I think...

  • McLintock

    One of the best movies, nay best stories ever told was the Movie Starring John Wayne, McLintock... Come in about 43 minutes into the movie... And you find a scrawny statists explaining to Birnbaum and McLintock that the indians have to follow what the law says and what he says. Then Mr Douglas explains...
