    @Swordsmyth "Aggression is wrong, unless the majority says otherwise" is not a libertarian position. I don't know how you can seriously debate this. You might as well claim that communism is consistent with libertarianism, so long as the majority approve of it.

    The rule giving shareholders qua shareholders immunity to tort liability is an expression of the common law of tort liability. If you scrapped the rule and directly applied the common law, you'd get more or less the same results. Mind you, I'm not arguing one way or another, for either the rule or the common law. My point is simply that it's misleading to call the rule a "privilege," since: (a) it treats shareholders more or less the same as the common law would,

    Incorrectly predicting which of the abominations would win the election is one kind of error; supporting either of them is quite another.

    All the previous talk about "they can't just get rid of the laws they have" falls flat with me, too, because a significant part of this is common law, or arose from common law. There is already a process for deciding equitable delineation of liability that has nothing to do with statute. The fact that it hasn't been used in recent history doesn't speak at all to whether or how much it is useful.

    Now that's really the main argument, isn't it? At least the one I've always heard. I want to hear examples where a company was stifled by not being able to grow to international, un-sueable size. I work in IT, and all the examples of innovation I can point to - all of them - were accomplished by a couple guys in a garage... and a large percentage of those innovations were actively killed by the exact same people once they got to mega-corporate size. Apple pioneered useful, affordable, user-friendly personal computers... and now they specialize in overpriced hardware that you don't have any control over. Google pioneered searches that actually return valid results... and now if you search Google you're tacitly admitting you don't actually want to find anything new. The narrative is that innovation wouldn't happen without the allure of becoming a billionaire world-changer, and that's just crap. One only has to look at porn - I mean, not literally, but look at the industry. The porn industry has been the biggest innovator on the web ever since the very beginning, and you can't name a single porn industry company unless you actually watch it. They have always been small and lean, because they don't enjoy (and therefore don't employ) the same legal protections as Facebook and Microsoft. But they keep innovating, long after companies like Microsoft "innovate" primarily by deliberately breaking their interfaces. I am one of those people who recognizes that once you kick that leg out from underneath the argument - the leg that says "they wouldn't innovate otherwise" - the argument collapses entirely.

    Read the full article at http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2019/october/14/washington-is-wrong-once-again-kurds-join-assad-to-defend-syria/ Wish Rand and Ron talked more. It seems like Ron doesn't buy into the whole sales pitch that the Kurds(Syrian or Iraqi) were the most effective fighting force against ISIS. It has always been the Syrians with their allies Iran, Hezbollah and Russia.. They liberated more areas occupied by ISIS than the Syrian Kurds did and definitely far more area that the Iraqi Kurds did. My other issue is how come Ron and Rand are not criticizing Trump for not bring our soldiers HOME. Southern Syria or Saudi Arabia is not home for our troops, I say we bring all our soldiers home. The Kurds can go back to their govt and fight ISIS through them. No more funding the Kurds of any kind, the sooner we leave, the sooner these people figure out a way to stabilize their homes

    Awkward! Chelsea Clinton emphatically states a person with a beard and a penis can 'absolutely' identify as a woman, while mom Hillary shuffles and looks conflicted as she blames 'generational' differences for not being as open to trans rights https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7568933/Chelsea-Hillary-Clinton-awkward-moment-disagree-trans-self-identification.html In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification Chelsea Clinton replied 'yes' emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman 'It's going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,' Hillary said Aitkenhead said Hillary became 'uneasy' when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a 'furious stare' at the journalist as her mother answered Hillary added: 'It's a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw'

    That's an argument for the distinction between shareholders and partners, for the "privilege" of limited (tort) liability, no? Courts could look at individual shareholders and individual partners in each case and try to decide who has enough control to justify liability, but, since shareholders normally have much less control than partners, and since predictability is important, the legislatures have created the rule that partners are liable qua partners and shareholders aren't liable qua shareholders. The same with respondeat superior. The courts could look at each employer individually, or they could apply a predictable rule which makes sense in most situations. I'm not sure what a company being publicly traded has to do with it; they also have dominant shareholders. ...

    They don't make anyone pay for anything, as that's an entirely voluntary transaction, which has nothing to do with the topic at hand (taxes). You might as well tell me that, because it's nice to split the bar bill evenly, communism is just. ...you're conflating totally unrelated issues.

    Trump supported the Libya invasion, took both sides on Iraq, bombed Syria, broke the Iran deal, increased military spending, sent more troops to the ME, droned more people than any of his predecessors, and surrounded himself with neocons - hardly a shining beacon of non-interventionism. His anti-war noises were fine when he was a candidate. If anti-war people were dumb enough to believe that he was an anti-war person, and this energized them, great. Now, those noises don't so much energize as co-opt (in the same way that Trump's yapping about capitalism tarnishes actual supporters of the market economy). Tulsi may be the same (except she'll never win, so we'll never get to the problematic phase).

    Then, as I made clear, you cannot with a straight face claim to be a libertarian. You are a democrat (lower-case d), i.e. a person who believes that what is right is whatever the majority says is right.

    Which is why the most libertarian president ever, enacted the most stringent immigration controls ever, in 1924. Because he (Coolidge) understood, and the people of the time understood, that to continue to allow in anybody, from anywhere, anytime they feel like it, and you would lose the Republic.
