  • Re: Sandy Hook "Truthers"

    I think the events at Sandy Hook probably actually happened, but what worries me is the changing details on all the mainstream news stories. (ie, did he shoot down the door or did the school let him in?) I say this not because it really matters, but because the liberals can mess with small details to produce the "story" they want, even if

    That's not Swanson; that's Offerman. But Offerman is dead to me, for sure.

  • Re: You can't have a law about everything (new Arguement against statism)

    @Autolykos: I asked whether you saw any (necessary) limit(s) to bureaucratic discretion. You replied that you didn't see any universal or objective limit to it. I then asked if I understood that correctly as you being fine with bureaucratic discretion being applied to anything and everything that isn't covered by statute. ^To me it seems like

    I really want to know what my picture on a bad day was. ;) (If accurate it would be a pale white guy with a Rothbard shirt playing Baldur's Gate, haha).

  • Re: "Reactionary" Right

    "Are you really saying that the supporters of the ancien regime were socialists and that classical liberals could be seen as "radical right wingers" who are counter revolutionaries?" No. I'm saying that the centre-right had some more socialistic and protectionist tendencies (and in that way agreed with the leftist idea of redistribution

  • Re: "Reactionary" Right

    This is what I was looking for to explain my original position, Neodoxy. I was worried that it had been lost in the interwebs forever; it was part of the reason I became a "right wing anarchist": "A good deal of words are wasted by pragmatic-reformist libertarians - desperate to win elections - about how libertarianism stands against

  • Re: "Reactionary" Right

    You're talking about the so-called centre right, not the right wing counter revolutionaries who sat on the far right. But yeah, you're right, there was a distinction between the conservative right wingers and radical right wingers. The former were just socialists and really were leftists.

  • Re: "Reactionary" Right

    Even if the classical liberals associated with the left, that doesn't mean they were left wing. In reality, their positions coincided with the right wing renegades, seeing that the commies were the ones who won the French revolution. Because most of the French revolution lefties wanted a socialist state, I will consider the classical liberals to

  • Re: "Reactionary" Right

    Well that's true Neodoxy, I do reject Rothbard's analysis of the "old left." I think he was simply confused about the origin of the terms, which came about during the time of the french revolution. Basically, the pinkos won a progressive revolution to institute a radical leftist government, and the right-wingers of the time were counterrevolutionaries
