  • Re: What book is closest to anarchno-capitalism?

    Jennifer Government by Max Barry has something like an anarcho-capitalist society, though his bias against it shines through. Definitely falls into the "companies would fight and use violence" fallacy. But, it's a good read nonetheless.

    [quote user="hashem"]I'm hesitant to read anyone else before I internalize Rothbard, for fear of damaging my fragile, pure-so-far, newly hardcore libertarian brain...[/quote] You should recognize that Rothbard may have his own "impurities" when it comes to libertarianism and there are significant disagreements even among Rothbardians

  • Re: Ethics vs. Morals

    I'm in a similar situation as you regarding abortion: I agree that women have a right to it, but I believe it is immoral. However, I don't think there's any necessary contradiction there - I can morally oppose abortion and still think it should be legal. Think of it this way: it is immoral to have an abortion, yes, but it would also be immoral

  • Re: Does the federal government punish people for murder?

    Murder remains a matter of state law in the United States, except in rare cases where the Constitution actually does give the federal government jurisdiction (on the high seas, etc). However, re: this: [quote user="limitgov"]So, can someone explain how they are able to do that?[/quote] Some people seem to think that the Constitution enforces

  • Re: Interesting Debate

    I think we can find enough people right here on that have pet ideas about liberty being this or that beyond the NAP. Equally, here we can find plenty of crankish economic ideas to bash our heads against. No need to go to a whole other forum for that.

  • Re: How did Fascism get to mean "extremly right wing"?

    [quote user="ZombieStomper"]Your logic is twisted.[/quote] And instead of pointing out where you thought this was the case, you went right ahead and talked about a topic which is totally irrelevant to the topic at hand. I'll say this once more for your benefit: whether or not fascism is right wing has absolutely nothing, zero, nada, nil

    [quote user="ZombieStomper"] This is not need to go back and study history.[/quote] You should be a little more careful with your words, you might just say something like what you did above to someone who knows a little about history. Well, too late for that, actually. Who were the biggest political enemies of Mussolini (the leader

    Because communism is extreme left-wing, and fascists were supposedly so anti-communist. Thus, extreme right-wing.
