Rand Paul as President might be the worst thing that would happen to the liberty movement.
Saying that X couldn’t exist without government is a statement which legitimizes government as an entity which can bring to fruition things that others can not achieve.
You’re laying upon government the title of a necessary being, for government is now necessary for X to exist.
If you’re a libertarian or an anarchist, you never want to do this, not only because it’s not true, but because you undermine the very philosophy which you claim to support; one that finds government to be an unnecessary and burdensome evil.
So making the claim that ‘corporations’ could not exist without government simply because government currently oversees the formation and legalities of ‘corporations’ is no different than saying ‘roads’ could not exist without government because government currently oversees the formation and legalities of roads.
How is this a valid argument?
How is it an argument to say that X is false because X’s standards have not been fulfilled by proponents of X?
And why is libertarianism a “cognitive disorder” as you tagged this post as?
If the idea of Peace is so great, why hasn’t humanity ever had world-wide Peace?
Clearly Peace is not a great idea, we should live in a society based on unending wars and violence.
CISPA, SOPA, AUMF, PATRIOT Act, PATRIOT Act 2, NDAA 2012, Executive orders to seize land, resources, communications, Executive Orders to assassinate US citizens, suspension of habeas corpus, drones in our skies, TSA, DHS, ICE, NSA, FBI, CIA, military tanks and personal armor used by local police, gun control legislation, Dept of HOMELAND Security buying billions of rounds of ammo, thousands of tanks, military grade guns, gov’t is out of control with increased taxation, decreased income, 17 trillion in debt, growing by billions a day, starting more wars without ending the priors, fighting an imaginary enemy that we started and funded and continue to fund today. Media outlets are being censored and paid off by gov’t officials, whistle-blowers of gov’t and corporate corruption are being jailed for treason.
Yea, nothing sinister going on at all. Love your government. Ignore the naysayers. There is no tyranny. We are all free. WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
