  • Re: Is Libertarianism Compatible with Subjective Morality?

    Morality is subjective because it is Mind Dependent , some take the subjectivity of morality to the extreme, using subjective to mean "Each person decides what is right or wrong." The latter being downright absurd, for understanding morality in that way would mean each person's morality is correct, which just isn't so since morality

  • Re: Atheist Plus forum hates Libertarianism

    Yeah, equality sucks when everyone is equally poor because of anti-market sentiments. Nothing says "Equality!" like giving a group of people power over others.

  • Re: Why is stealing even wrong?

    Ownership is a social construct, which came about by evolution, as a way for people to determine who rightfully controls something, to avoid conflict, which would lessen the chance of survival of the human race.

  • Re: philosophy help.

    The original post talked about how he felt he couldn't think properly, reading more books on philosophy won't help, what's needed is a book on logic and critical thinking. Go over those books until you are certain you understand everything . After that "practice makes perfect". (There are many books on logic and critical thinking

  • Re: Prove how private healthcare is better than UHC.

    You sound like greenbabe, which would be ironic, since you also fail to provide evidence. You're not looking for evidence, there are already books that explain how free (real free markets, not what we have now) markets provide better medical services, what you want is for us to tell you you're a troll so that you can say to yourself, "Those

  • Re: How do you define "ownership" epistemically?

    After reading your question a word popped up in my mind. Superfluous. You could rephrase your question by asking, "What is ownership?", which has been explained numerous times on this forum most likely. Epistemology is the study of knowledge, defining things is already part of epistemology, because how can you define something without first

  • Re: Is Suffering Required for Spiritual Growth?

    Every religion and/or spiritual path I know of, which is damn near every one of them, is about ending suffering in the long run. Christianity may seem to "value" suffering, ie "repenting for your sins", but eventually ends in no more suffering (Heaven) if you live a "good" life. Eastern spirituality more clearly proves

  • Re: Can't you just renounce citizenship and not pay taxes?

    In some countries perhaps, unfortunately Uncle Sam is one persistent bastard, renouncing US citizenship won't get you out of paying taxes. (You can be taxed for up to 10 years after giving up citizenship in the US.)

  • Re: Government isn't coercive...

    For something to be "the will of the people" it must include all people, there are some people against government, therefore government is not "the will of the people". With 100% of the people in agreement, it doesn't make something right, a long time ago people believed the Sun revolved around the Earth, which was wrong, yet

  • Re: Does Lack of Bargaining Power Nullify Voluntary Action?

    "True in a way..." was used because some people wouldn't see the situation as voluntary. Many things can be considered voluntary technically, this doesn't take into account the reason why a person would take the crappy job, Leftists would say the person took the job because he wasn't in a financial position to turn down the job
