    *sigh*... as has always been the case (with both "Big L" and "small l" libertarians), some do and some do not. Same as it ever was.

    No one has jumped to conclusions. Some have expressed opinions about Baldwin's degree of culpability and have given reasons for their assessments. In the very video that prompted this branch of the thread, Viva Frei emphasized that what he was presenting was only his opinion - and he explicitly said that his opinion was subject to change given any new or additional information. There is nothing objectionable or deserving of a warning in any of this.

    I get your point, and would otherwise agree. But in this particular case, I find I must disagree. The implications of "normalization" with respect to guns (or any other mechanisms or activities that are or could be involved with the application of force) are neither analogous with nor the same with respect to prostitution (or drug use, or any other "indecorous" activity that does not involve or is not implicated in the application of force). That is, your statement "that the more it is 'normalized', the more effective it will be for liberty" does not apply to the latter as it does to the former. In both theory and practice, libertarianism is concerned with the legitimate use of force in society. The right to defend oneself against aggression - whether from individuals or even the government - is fundamental to that concern. It is thus critical that the means by which that right (and ultimately, every other right) is to be asserted and maintained should be "normalized". IOW: The "normalization" of possessing the capacity to defend oneself from aggressors is absolutely critical to the establishment and preservation of liberty, but the "normalization" of snorting a line of blow from off a hooker's ass is not. (And what is more, the "normalization" of the first of those things will help maintain the liberty to engage in the second - but not the other way around.)

    I don't see what is so hard to understand. The desire to segregate oneself from those with whom one fundamentally and irreconcilably disagrees is a necessary precursor to actually doing so. Malice is making note of the fact that such desires are increasing - "our nation's ideological self-segregation is proceeding nicely", in his words - and if the number of people with such desires ever reaches a "critical mass" (what I previously referred to as "enough cases"), then the (relatively few) modes in which such self-segregations are still not legally permitted will become increasingly less tenable and enforceable. And in fact, there are myriad ways in which such ideological segregations are at present not at all illegal. You may still choose with whom you associate in your personal/private life, where you live, the sources from which you seek information and discussion (such as RPFs), etc., etc., etc. Such instances far outnumber those in which your choices are (unjustly) constrained by law (as in for whom you must bake a cake, if you are baker). And even then, such constraints as do exist are often "unidirectional", so to speak. For example, a white merchant may be legally required to sell goods to black customers, but black customers are not legally required to purchase goods from white merchants. (It is this latter case with which the thread OP is concerned.)

    People having opinions about things - such as whether Alec Baldwin is prone to being an arrogant, angry asshole who is capable of shooting & killing someone accidentally in a fit of pique and then fobbing all responsibility for it off on everyone else except himself - is not a "cultural issue that affects the liberty movement and the Right", It is an absolutely normal and typical thing that all human beings throughout history have done and will continue to do for so long as they remain human beings.

    And for that very reason, gun ownership is a light that should not be hidden under a bushel. The more "normalized" it is, the more effective it will be for the purpose AF identified. It should absolutely be normalized - and good for Massie for doing his bit as a prominent public figure.

    I don't really disagree with any of this. But I would note, however, that Binion himself injected the issue of libertarian "credentials" when he chose to frame his remarks with the preface, "I say this as a libertarian ...".

    Facebook Asks Users to Send in Their Nude Pictures (Again) Facebook (now known as Meta) has reportedly co-developed a platform that asks people to submit their nude photographs and videos to prevent them from being used as “revenge porn” across Facebook’s platforms. Mark Zuckerberg and the Masters of the Universe expect users to fully trust them not only with every private detail of their life, but also with their nude bodies. NBC News reports that Facebook (now known as Meta) recently co-developed a platform that asks users to send in their intimate photos and videos to prevent them from being used as “revenge porn” across Facebook-owned platforms. Facebook attempted to implement a similar system back in 2018. more...............https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2021/12/05/facebook-asks-users-to-send-in-their-nude-pictures-again/

    Well, I will comment on his character: he is quite clearly an asshole - an arrogant and angry asshole. Baldwin has long had a reputation for being an angrily foul-tempered person. And the reasons he has that reputation are well-illustrated by the video/audio clips Viva Frei made reference to. There is nothing objectionable about pointing out that angrily foul-tempered people like Baldwin are prone to becoming angry and foul-tempered.

    RUST and the Abdication of Responsibility | The Ballad of Alec Baldwin (VL587) Alec Baldwin has done the unthinkable, not just in wielding the gun that shot and killed Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust in October of this year, but in giving a national interview to George Stephanopoulos of ABC News before the investigation has even run its course. Why would someone do such a reckless thing? Why would his lawyers allow it? Alec Baldwin has a lot to answer for, as we discuss...in Virtual Legality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsmRF3uRvfo

    No one said that Baldwin has an anger problem merely because he got really pissed off at a paparazzo once. However, it absolutely is evidence of such a problem. Being hypoglycemic doesn't mean you have diabetes, but being diabetic does mean you have hypoglycemia. Getting pissed off at paparazzi doesn't mean you're a rage-aholic, but being a rage-aholic does mean getting pissed off at paparazzi. Baldwin is notorious for his short temper, and (as Viva noted in his video) the incident with that paparazzo is just one of a number of reasons why.
