    Doesn't matter what the writer says if it isn't in the film. And it isn't in the film. "Word of Writer" isn't canon. Only what appears in film is canon. And Glover looks fantastic as Lando.

    Tom Woods did an episode on how communism, even in a world of saints and angels, is impossible and could not function because it has no way to measure wants and needs. He then talks about how in capitalism the price system allows entrepreneurs to measure the wants and needs of people so they know what to produce more and less of and when to do it. It is a good podcast and not long. https://tomwoods.com/ep-1104-what-i-told-college-students-about-communism/

    That and this, the refugees, is better than spending it on murdering Middle Easterners and generating terrorism. I take the position Ron did on earmarks, if it has to be spent, better this than war.

    We know who the "Deep State" is- it is the national security state. It isn't exactly that deep or that hidden. It is the organs of government that range form the Pentagon to the NSA to the DHS to the CIA to the FBI, etc. less a person and more a hydra of competing "national security" agencies. Sure, people might be surprised to find out how powerful the national security organizations are in the USA, but they know they're there. Michael J. Glennon wrote an excellent book on it (in which he calls it a "double government") that goes into detail on the development of the national security state, its power, and what it would take to reign it in. I think is well worth reading. This PDF covers most of it, for free, in about 114 pages. http://www.pce.at/PDF/US-Schattenregierung.pdf

    Agreed. Most of us have also been through the public education system and still manage to see through the curtain, at least somewhat. But then again I think most of us are the type of people who take least to that kind of conditioning to begin with.

    What are you talking about? I'm not defending you in anyway. As to everything else, ad hominem attacks are the kind of logical fallacies people start throwing out when they've reached the intellectual limits of their arguments and know there is no response but their pride won't let them "lose" so they turn to Plan B hoping no one will notice they failed. So I guess we really are done for today. :)

    Yeah, the virtue of submitting to the nanny state. That is typically how brainwashing works, mix what you already know to be good with the bad until you can't tell the difference. Funny, I didn't see any mention of a "lefty pervert takeover" in the Church's official announcement. They do talk about how they have been working on a program for years now that will allow local leaders to customize the teen programs to the needs of their local youth.

    1. I'm not talking about anarchy. No one here is. I'm talking about libertarianism, a political philosophy founded on the idea that neither you nor the government have the right to initiate force against anyone. It is opposed to statism -the belief that you have the right to use violence to compel others to obey your orders- in all its forms, no matter whether the list of things you want to force others to do is big or small. 2. That you do not understand number one tells me two things. One, you don't understand anarchy or libertarianism. You constantly conflate the two. And two, it gives me a great deal of confidence in concluding that you do not understand minarchy either. 3. The differences between anarchy and minarchy are fundamental and foundational. Minarchists want to use violence against peaceful people in order to force them obey your orders and violate their freedom. Anarchists do not. Unlike you, anarchists have no list of demands that everyone else must obey or be beaten, caged, or killed for the "evil" of living as a free human being. Everything else flows from this truth. In reality, there is not much difference between anarchy and libertarianism. Libertarians believe there is still some hope that a formal government can be completely voluntary and function without violating individual liberty. Anarchists are convinced otherwise. That is the only difference. In contrast, minarchists are not different than Socialists and Fascists. All three ideologies are founded on the belief that you have the right to beat, cage, or kill others for the crime of disobeying the orders of those in power. The only different between the three is they argue over what things they should beat, cage, and kill people over. It is why minarchy is and always has been a fantasy. Once an organization can beat, cage, or kill you for disobeying it, the trend will always be towards totalitarianism. This, in short, is the history of American government, if you can say a government that holds over 5 million people in absolute slavery and uses its vast policing and military powers to compel even those opposed to slavery to support it was ever "small" or minarchist to begin with.

    Yep, which is a big reason why the LDS Church is breaking with the Scouts. Not that Mormons will do any less flag worshiping, but the leaders of the Church recognize that an international church needs a uniform international program. There have been rumors they've been working on something for a while now, and it seems like it'll be ready in the next couple of years, which is when the LDS Church will fully break with the BSA.

    You want someone to put a gun to my head and force me to obey your will and wear your shackles or be beaten, caged, or killed. I don't care if the list of things you want to do that to me on is big or small, you're all the same. You petty dictators are the problem, not the solution. Free men do not need to be governed.

    Still waiting for that Libertarian wave. Ron did well at using his role as a podium from which to espouse libertarian values from. But that neither he nor anyone even close to his positions has won is telling I think. Amash is probably the closest, but he is far from as public or famous a figure as Ron.

    I don't buy it. Petersen doesn't believe in teh NAP. He is a minarchist, which makes him a statist. He actively believes the government should have the ability to force you to obey it against your will when you arenm't violating the rights of anyone else. The list of things he thinks it should be able to do that to you for may be small, but it exists. Ron was the opposite. He really does believe in an endorse the NAP, even to the point to where he thinks the Golden Rule should guide foreign policy and warfare. If anything, Ron was the RINO. Which is not something I see as a problem.

    It isn't worse than you thinking it is okay to call the cops on someone for taking a nap, rules be damned. He may or may not just be wrong about racism. You're justifying an action that could get someone murdered for the nonviolent "crime" of taking a nap. You're definitely more in the wrong here, by far. Reminds me of people who say people should be imprisoned for breaking other nonviolent rules, like smoking a joint. Just exactly when did you trade your shoes in for jackboots?

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.

    If you can't "let it pass" then that is your problem. You should resolve it through private messages. When you use public threads you make it everyone else's problem. Just use your head is all.

But I did trade them the property I was willing to part with and which they wanted -money- in exchange for goods I wanted. That isn't a deficit. That is a win.
