    The FBI is a terrorist organization. If the various incitements to violence mentioned in the OP article are not sufficient to demonstrate this, then there's the 1993 World Trade Center bombing ... The bomb would have been a dud if the FBI had not explicitly instructed the bomb maker (who was an FBI informant) to make certain that the bomb would actually work. Several people died as a result.

    He signed it earlier today I believe. It’s not hard to not keep up when you don’t gaf. Something about a contract to veterans I believe. Or is that the 400 billion in other bills?

    Because contract enforcement in society is perfect, good, or even adequate in many cases today. What we are posturing is that nothing is perfect. Not every scenario could be seen or solved as there is not an incentive to solve them. Why don’t you share some of your proposals to fix this joke of a system with regards to contract enforcement.. or any other matter for this time? Or is the costly, absurd, disregarding the victim, creating more victims to fund robed whores and palaces what minarchists dream of? And trust, if I weren’t on this piece of shit phone, I’d not only more properly debunk your belief in minor authoritarianism, I’d quite easily poke holes in your proposals as easily as you can mockingly poke holes in mine. You know why? Because minarchism has been seen and is evidenced with immorality, corruption, thuggery, cost prohibition, absurdity and down right stupidness. So stand behind the fucked off altar. As you said, it can get much worse. And it will. As they crucify another, slave.

    First and most importantly, my property is hardly secure now. Some 40% is taken before I even see it with varying percentages being siphoned afterwards. This is done to protect my property.. which is an insult to reason. My ability to defend my property is hindered additionally. Contracts are not written in blood. Some will inevitably be broken. Collateral, reputation, ostrasization, criminals being summarily gunned down— these are deterrents. Society will never be utopian. I suppose I should turn the questions around and ask you how you propose to keep your ideal state limited? Is it possible? It could get much better as well. And either way, one is moral, the other is not.

    It is relevant in that a Constitution which held individual rights higher than other covenants seen in history still has been, in relatively short time, bastardized to the point of absurdity. You say property rights cannot be done absent government. I say societal organization hardly could be more immoral than what is occurring now. To steal from all to make victims whole, even assuming that the only thing the courts were there for would be to enforce property rights and actual crimes ignores the fact that you are creating victims in the name of making victims whole— i.e. the forgotten man. At worst, and what would occur I’d add, is that over time the system would become sluggish, expensive, and corrupt.

    Did he actually point the gun out the window? Or was he merely seen through the window from outside while he was handling the gun inside the room? I was under the impression that it was the latter, though I may be wrong. If he was pointing it out a window, then it is not entirely unreasonable for an onlooker to have thought that he might also have been about to fire the gun. (Why else point a gun out a window?) This raises an interesting question: what if you were an open-carrying mundane (or a concealed-carrying mundane, for that matter) and you saw someone waving or pointing a gun out a window? What would you do? Yanking out your gun and popping off rounds at the guy might be an overreaction (or maybe not, depending on what else you think is going on), but nonchalant indifference doesn't seem appropriate, either. Whatever one might do in such a situation, the upshot is surely that it not wise to point guns out of windows ... (especially in publicly trafficed areas like hotels ...) (DISCLAIMER: As anyone familiar with my posting history will already know, none of this should be construed as an attempt to suggest that the actions of the cops were in any way justified or excusable - or indeed, that their actions were anything but those of rabidly deranged killers.)

    Yes, pay 60 dollars to file a civil suit for 100 dollars. So that the state can steal 20+% wholesale from your wages to pay for the multimillion dollar fountain and palace of the agents who will then garnish the person who defaulted to “make whole” the lender. Because anyone positing that there may be a more efficient and moral way with regards to loans and debt collection is obviously missing the point.

    100% of the world's T206 Honus Wagner baseball cards are held by just a couple of hundred people. Why should this make us think that the rise in the price of Honus Wagner cards is not the market at work? :confused: Originally sold for pennies (along with a pack of cigarettes), most Honus Wagner cards are now valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. One of the cards - known as the "Jumbo Wagner" - has sold for over three million dollars. Note also that the value of a Honus Wagner card "isn’t based on any underlying asset, but rather largely on human sentiment" - and that the prices of the cards are often the product of "collusion" between the holders of the cards and large institutions (such as Christie's or Sotheby's), who together set a minimum "reserve" price.

    No. I would rather use your post and Influenza's as illustrations of why it is pointless even to bother ... quod erat demonstrandum The only thing lacking at this point is an anarchist chiming in to the effect that Swordsmyth, rev3 & Influenza are vile moral defectives. At that point, the Platonic form of anarchist vs. minarchist "debate" at RPFs will have been fully immanentized.

    This is why I no longer substantively participate in threads directed at anarchists by minarchists (and vice versa). They typically devolve into mutual recriminations of intellectual backruptcy, moral deficiency, etc. With only the second post, this one is already on its way down that well-trodden path ...

    It is true. It isn't about whether cops had guns "back then" or not. It's about the fact that, ever since the inception of "modern" police forces in the 19th century, cops have been the specially privileged enforcers of the state's statutory malum prohibitum rules (and only incidentally the apprehenders of malum in se offenders such as Bonnie & Clyde). That is what they do. That is what they are for. That is why they exist. Human nature has not changed. "The job" has just as powerful an attraction to the same kinds of people today as it did "back then" - sociopaths, sadists and others who get off on aggressively exercising authority over others with little or no accountability for their actions. Things like "nickel rides" or murderous "jailhouse" neglect and abuse (or the "code of silence" among "brothers in blue" that routinely attends the lack of exposure of such brutalities) are not of recent vintage - and it does not take guns to do what was done to people like Kelly Thomas or Eric Garner, either now or "back then." What is relatively new is the paramilitarization of police. But this did not create any of the aforementioned problems or the almost total lack of accountability for them. Those problems already existed, from the very start. (It is in the essential nature of the beast.) The paramilitarization of police has only served to exacerbate them, while the ubiquity of video (and the ease of disseminating video via the Internet) has made them much more difficult for the authorities (and their lapdogs in the media) to excuse or conceal. (The italicized bits here are the point of my original post.)

    And if it weren't for the ease of disseminating recorded video via the Internet, you probably still wouldn't think so. fisharmor is right. This ain't nothing new: The only difference now is that the Little Dutch Boys (public officials & police, their compliant mouthpieces in the media, etc.) can no longer keep all the holes plugged up and the evidence for how things really are (and really always have been) is finally getting out from behind the dykes they've constructed to keep the true state of affairs concealed ...

    Jesus H. Christ. When I was composing my reply to Zippy (post #40), I thought about including some song lyrics or something in which "red" and "white" and "yellow" and "black" were used in an innocuous context to promote the idea of our commonly humanity. I figured there had be something like that out there somewhere (especially from the '60s or '70s). So I did a Google search on "song lyrics red yellow black white," like so: https://www.google.com/search?q=song+lyrics+red+yellow+black+white Guess what the top result was? For the sake of brevity and concision, though, I decided to just let my point stand "as is" without extraneous references to any songs or what-have-you.
