    I'd take an average TERF over a 3rd waver any day. A friend of mine in SF is a lesbian TERF and I've had far more reasonable disagreements with her than the hundreds of SJWs I've known over the years.

    All he seems to be saying is that libertarian types tend to dance in the realm of ideals as opposed to putting the rubber to the road and actually understanding what it takes to rule. I've read almost every libertarian thinker of note and the perennial problem with almost all of them is this: they do not understand power, and even worse, they have no desire to and mistake their inability or unwillingness to understand it as some sort of virtue. Who needs to understand power when you can just "smash the state", right? Say what you want about Milton Friedman, but at least he was willing to create libertarian-friendly policies that would be somewhat more palatable to the masses. Bannon, like all Machiavellians before him, understands power, and the cyclical nature of history. This is (apparently) a guy who reads Strauss and Burnham and Moldbug, among others. He is far more intellectually curious than the vast, vast majority of people who have been in the White House at any point in history. His desire to unmake the federal agencies is well known, but he's smart enough to know that you can't do that by running around talking about gold and how private charity will take care of everyone. Political idealism is the folly of fools who either have no desire or capacity to run a civilization. Until libertarians study power the way they study economics, what economic theories they champion will be irrelevant. Until then, they'll never have the ability to set any economic policy, let alone an Austrian one.

    No way is that a real Walt Disney film. Disney had some dark stuff in his movies, but nothing like that and the animation just doesn't look right either.

    Being anti-monopoly as such is a leftist fetish that should be discarded. There's nothing wrong with them in themselves. When libertarians talk about how impossible it is for a free market to have monopolies, it is almost always a desire to either placate or refute leftists who know nothing abut history or economics. Peter Thiel was mentioned above and I think his conception of "creative monopolies" is quite interesting and something we should think more about as the multinational inevitably supersedes the nation-state.

    If she doesn't France is finished. The only hope they have of leaving the EU is a Front National victory. It'll be made demographically impossible if things don't change immediately.

    Isn't distributism more of a religious philosophy than a developed economic theory?

    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.
