It was straight forward and to the point. Also it perfectly illustrates what's wrong with the Libertarian Party's reasoning. Sorry if it makes you uncomfortable.

There is a difference between " Freedom " and total anarchy. And if that's what you're selling no wonder not many are buying. And before you start here's a definition of anarchy :
Quote:
an·ar·chy
noun \\ˈa-nər-kē, -ˌnär-\\

Definition of ANARCHY



1

a: absence of government b: a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority c: a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government


2

a: absence or denial of any authority or established order b: absence of order : disorder <not manicured plots but a wild anarchy of nature — Israel Shenker

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/anarchy

I really don't see that we've reached that utopian society yet. But if you see an indication let me know.

Is there? Really? Perhaps your deep study and understanding of society and political philosophy will shed some light on this insight.

And as we've seen freedom has to be protected by laws and social ideals. You see we're still a work in progress and half savage. I don't like that any more than you do but it is what it is. Maybe in a few thousand years.......

Ever see an old classic movie called " Forbidden Planet "? Even back then in 1956 they recognized that : " We're all part monster inside so we have laws and religion "

Well you got the idea. People can only be trusted just so far to do the right thing. Religion was only a way of presenting morals in a light people of the time could absorb. In time different people twisted it as a means to an end and we have some of the ones we see today. There are some definite good things the bible teaches : Don't kill, don't steal etc. It's just that men have taken that and twisted it into something else. But that's what happens when people are left to their own too much. You just can't rust them to do the right thing always.

I'm saying it sure sounds like you can't see the value of philosophy in art. Oh what would the people who read Ayn Rand say?


It was a perfect example of why we can't just let people go to anarchy. The movie may be old and a bit cheesy in places but it's a classic and it's message is unmistakable. In the movie the Krell were these advanced beings who ceased to exist in just one night. They had conquered war and all the ills that we have. They were so advanced they made a machine that could project solid matter by mere thought to anywhere on the planet. For any purpose. But they forgot one thing. They evolved from the mindless primitive ( just like us ) and that remained in their subconscious. So all the secret hate and fear that lurks there ( monsters form the ID ) governed these physical creations as well. So in one night they killed themselves because who could have stopped them?
People basically mean well they just are governed partially by their hormones, genes, basic body chemistry, and about two hundred thousand years of evolutionary development. We're a work in progress. Maybe people can be left with little or no laws or government someday but that's a long way in the future.

You know MJ some of the greatest truths in the world are simple. But I guess you just don't get that. Oh well..........

Can you quote where MJ is advocating anarchy? I can't seem to find anything indicating he is.

You're speaking in generalities. Can you give specifics as to how your ideal world - in which the tyranny of the majority is acceptable - is better than anarchy?

Sigh. Ideals are what we aspire to ( not the same as an" ideal world ". They don't exist automatically from the get go. It still sounds like you're not reading the thread very closely.

And I don't perceive anything about what he meant. It's there in black and white for you to read. Get real.

It's better because without it a man could want you, your wife, and all you own. If powerful enough he could just come into your house and take those things and there would be no policeman to stop him. No law would protect you and police coverage if it did exist would be worse than it is now because not everybody would pay for it. They'd rather spend the money on something else. So we have taxes to pay for it to make sure that doesn't happen. And even in that kind of society there's corruption because people will be people but at least there's something tp protect you from that just happening. It's better than just the wild west MJ's advocating.

Not if you can't see what I'm getting at you're just being contrarian because you want to help MJ. Come on Jazzy.

Either that or try reading all what we've wrote up until now.

jimmac is a hoot!

It's always entertaining and amusing sparring with him. Not challenging in any real way...but definitely entertaining.

Given the typical statist mentality that anything less that the current amount of government would be anarchy, I can see how he thought I was advocating for anarchy.

What's especially humorous is this. Personal income tax accounts for about 49% of the revenue of the federal government. In 2010 the total federal government revenue was about $1.9T (stated in 2005 dollars). To completely eliminate personal income tax would cut that in half and take us back to about what it was in 1978. While that would be huge step backwards...no reasonable person would argue that it was a time of anarchy (no government at all).

The hoot would be what would happen if we did that. Now I've completely gutted your premise MJ. Jazzy can't see that you're advocating anarchy even though I quoted you doing so.

Now you can Fein the " aren't you funny jimmac and I'm so superior " thing in a lame attempt to discredit me but I have better things to do with my evening than play with two bad boys who can't even admit when they've been shown how wrong they are.

Well you can just refuse admit you're wrong ( or your own delusions can keep you from seeing that ) no matter what. That won't make you right or keep you from appearing wrong to others ( voters as well as we've already seen ). Oh! But that's right! You don't care about the majority. Good. Keep that up! We'll being reading about the Libertarian Party in the political dustbins of history someday. And MJ sinking to spelling is telling. When you stoop to that it means you really don't have a counter argument.

Yes, he's quite entertaining. As you said, it's not challenging, but entertaining. If you ask him to clarify something, he flips out and tells you you're "dodging the question." The best is when you use a term or a phrase, and he throws back out at you a few posts later, pretending it was his. I'll be arguing with him, and I'll post "that's rhetorical nonsense." A few posts or even pages later, he'll post "SDW, that's just retorical [sic] nonense."

I have more of his greatest hits, if you'd like.

Well then I guess you can't read either. You guys can try to dodge this all you want. He was equating freedom which he is advocating and anarchy.

And coming from the master of " White is Black " this is a special treat!

I really must have hit a nerve this time folks since they've also resurrected the Libertarianism thread.
