    Private states have existed throughout almost all of history and exist today. A monarchy is a private state. If you want a more modern example, Singapore and Liechtenstein are both reasonable facsimiles of what I'm talking about.

    There are certainly systems where that's conceivable, but in addition to franchise restrictions, there should be heavy restrictions on what can even make it on the ballot to be voted on in the first place. Group A votes to benefit themselves at the expense of group B all the time, so that's an argument against voting as a whole. That's why we should scrap the concept entirely and replace democracy with a private state.

    No... Not sure how you got to that conclusion.

    If voting happens at all, it should be restricted to the property owning classes.

    Power is fundamentally always concentrated. Constitutions and voting don't limit state power in any discernable way. Good, efficient, limited government is achieved by having the correct incentives in place and the correct dogmas believed. If it's an inevitable feature of civilization, then it doesn't matter if it's right or not, it needs to be dealt with. It is all of the worst political philosophies that choose their theory when said theory is tested against reality. There must be. Leadership (good or bad) takes certain qualities, that not everyone has. Human hierarchies will always reflect this. The issue at hand is to engineer a system where the rulers err on the side of more liberty, not less like in today's world. That is simply a falsehood.

    I live in LA. This leftist concept of "black and brown unity" (against whites, of course), is a ridiculous fantasy. I doubt there are any other two racial groups in the US that hate each other more than blacks and mestizos.

    Dark Horse is far superior these days, with Marvel doing everything it can to alienate its core audience and pander to SJWs who don't buy comics.

    Symbolism is not an objective science. Symbols mean different things to different people. Do bigots use the flag for distasteful reasons? Sure. Does that mean it's a bigoted symbol? No.

    Ye Gods, your lack of self-awareness is astounding. This statement demonstrates that you have no understanding of power. What you just said is the most jejune kind of pro-democracy talking point. It would be totally at home at a Bernie Sanders rally. Power always concentrates into few hands. Man is a hierarchical animal. The liberty of the populace needs to benefit the aristocratic class, otherwise, liberty doesn't exist. This is why democracy (and yes, republicanism) always erodes liberty and why monarchy (or other forms of private governance) is the only way to create and maintain it. The incentive structure must be aligned properly. Dementia has taken what little was left of your mind, I see. That's the only explanation as to why you'd be bringing any of this up in this discussion, which has nothing to do with neo-nazis or communists. Yes, let's hear your brilliant strategy on how to get a populace who despises the very concept of liberty to "nurse the tree". You are incapable of a cold, rational power analysis, all you can do is spew platitudes and insult your betters.

    Whether it's a proper strategic move remains to be seen, but Rand is totally incapable of winning the presidency and so is any prominent libertarian. The libertarian movement, and indeed, the entire right wing needs to be torn down and rebuilt, but only after the leaders and devotees study and understand power. No one seems to understand power less than libertarians, and until the root is torn out and replanted, the tree of liberty will always be diseased and malnourished.

    Really? a Neg rep for 4pimping communism? lol what do you American know anything about Yugoslavia and its system is it all the things you know about what your fascist MSM news outlets have told you about it? How Yugoslavia was brutal and or how some it was an Communist state? that neg rep message just shows how some of you Americans clearer lack ion education of other countries.

    But since you believe the Venezuela opposition so much you might as well start loving John McCain and Co unless your already a NeoCon trolling here. By the way in Yugoslavia we had a much better high standard of education unlike of that in an soviet state.

    Your post in that thread also further shows just how much America should just zip its mouth and let the world solve its own issues.
