  • Re: Should Freedom of Speech and Expression have limits?

    I am talking about our current world, where there are still "public" properties... Case 1 : My flag, my house. Can I burn it? Yes Case 2 : My flag. I am standing on a state-owned street. Government bans burning flag. Should I obey or my property right on flag is superior, thus I can burn it? Case 3 : My body, my property. I am standing on

    @Marko My friend is a far right fascist - nationalist (Golden Dawn Party supporter) who tries to fit free economy and market with his far right social ideas. And I am new in Libertarian ideas, thats why I have so many wonders.

    @John James I understand what you say. But If we have to ban shouting "Fire!" in a crowded place because panic, injuries, or death may happen, why don't we ban flag burning or Mohhamed portraying, as well? These cases may cause panic, injuries or even deaths, too. I understand this about the private property. Even if you are in public

  • Should Freedom of Speech and Expression have limits?

    Is freedom of speech dangerous? A friend of mine claimed that full freedom of speech would provoke dangerous reactions of the masses, vandalisms, murders or even wars between countries. What do you think? Some things must be banned some claim. One may say that the public expression of Nazi and Communist ideas should be banned, but....people are different

  • Re: Political Freedom - Economic Freedom

    So, many researchs which show that market oriented free economies do not lead people to political freedom, are false? Friedman once said that economic freedom is necessary but not sufficient for freedom. By this, I understand that: Economic Freedom and Political Freedom are not the same and Economic Freedom do not lead to Political Freedom (this was

    Can anyone tell me if it is true that Hayek defended Pinochet? Did Hayek said "I prefer a Liberal Dictatorship from a corrupted Democracy"? a. If it is true, I wonder how an intellectual of Liberty like Hayek could support a military Dictatorship? b. Liberalism-Libertarianism, isn't it about Freedom of speech/expression, Human Rights etc

  • Re: Immigration And Economy

    @Michelangelo, you said: " No central planner decides how many immigrants are optimum. No more than any central planned should, or could, plan how many of any good or service is neccesary.
