    But you're evading American responsibility for the current mess and shifting the blame. WE screwed this all up. The "conservatives" of prior generations were the first to go soft. And it was their capitulation that led to the current mess. No, we were not overwhelmed by immigrants and then corrupted... we first became corrupt, and then immigration policy was changed to accommodate waves of immigrants seeking free handouts instead of coming here to work and achieve the American dream (once upon a time) for themselves. And because you allow the prior-generation conservatives to get off scot-free for their betrayal of this country and its core values, you participate in shifting the blame onto foreigners who are just following human self-interest. They may be despicable like common crooks are despicable, but they're not crazy. What they're doing is perfectly rational... coming here to get free stuff, and to be paid to breed American women that American men won't breed because the legal regime has been changed to make family-headship practically an act of insanity. If you have the morals of a dog, modern America is paradise on earth... just go from house to house and breed American women and get paid to do it! Otherwise, if you have traditional values (one man, one wife, nuclear family) modern America is an absolute hellscape. The issue is so badly represented by apologists who want to salvage the reputations of the very "conservatives" who betrayed us that the incels have completely given up and just accepted that it won't be possible for them to form a nuclear family. And the self-justifying conservatives who betrayed this country are still trying to argue that "the issue is the border". Yes, the emergency issue is the border, like the emergency issue of a man who is being attacked by a wild animal is that he is spurting blood. But treating the bites while ignoring the wild animal continuing to tear him to shreds is an amazing act of ostrich-head-burying. The interests of those who want the man to be killed by the wild animal are perfectly served by those who want to just "focus on the immediate issue" of the wounds spurting blood and "we'll get to the other stuff later, those are minor issues by comparison." No, they arethe issue, because they arethe cause of why the man is dying. And he is continuing to be attacked! Let's be clear: certain of the conservative elites in this country are corrupt and evil to the core. They have gone into the same tyrannical habit that has defined all prior governments on earth before America. They want to maintain the legacy of their heirs at any cost, and so they resort to demographic warfare against their own countrymen whom they deem to be "inferior stock". For this reason, the laws become changed by those conservative power-interests to be hostile to the formation of nuclear families by the ordinary American man. Such men and their families are just "possible future competitors" to their own heirs. They themselves have no worry of their nuclear family coming apart because they have the threat of disinheritance which, when you are sitting on a multi-billion dollar estate, is a better threat than the death-sentence. So, these turncoat traitors will go out in public and pretend to support conservative causes and then, behind closed doors, they support the Divorce-Industrial Complex which is how they wage demographic warfare against their fellow American men whose only crime is not having been born rich. And the hordes of foreign immigrants pouring over the border are much more threat to the ordinary American man (forming a family, holding a job) so, again, the wealthy "conservatives" are natural allies to this. But since they can't openly espouse these policies, they instead support neoCONs and RINOs to do it for them. "Oh yeah, we're conservative, we even voted for Bush! We're multi-generational Republicans!" Every one of these people are more dangerous than 10,000 Nancy Pelosis and...

    Even if true, the problem with playing the Fake News game is you get the boy-who-cried-wolf problem. You want to openly lie to the entire American public on national TV, suit yourself, but payback is a beyotch. WTC7 and its many cousins prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that nobody's going to believe this was faked. PS: I see no indications that this is fake. There are countless leftist-loonies who would be willing to make the strike, and a dead Trump is precisely what Resident #46 needs more desperately than oxygen...

    OK, but by refusing to discuss ending the welfare-state as part of this issue (even if that cannot be accomplished until sometime later due to the political complexities), you are the one who is capitulating to the leftist Agenda as the neoCONS did way back in the 1990s. They made a handshake deal with the Left: "We'll stop criticizing the welfare-State if you stop criticizing the warfare-State. By the way, we will have to bitch-and-moan about the border to placate our base. If you want to bitch-and-moan about Wall Street or something, have at it, just don't actually do anything about it. Deal?" If you're not challenging that narrative, all the policing of how anarcho-capitalist political theory can be distorted and willfully misunderstood by RINOs will do you no good, because you don't understand the first elements of what is actually at stake.

    Well, that's just stupidity because then every country in the world would be incentivized to export all prisoners/insane/etc. here, which is exactly what is happening currently as a result of willful non-enforcement of border law. It is perfectly reasonable to have a border and to exclude undesirables from other countries. We have enough undesirables here, we should not have to carry the burden of every other country in the world, also.

    That proves my point. Go back and carefully work out why that's the case and you'll get it. Then there is a simple solution: increase legal immigration quotas. Once again, this was never an issue until it became politicized. Prior to the rise of the "amnesty" narrative, there were plenty of people who wanted to immigrate to the US to work (not just collect handouts) and they were able to. In the last 40+ years, the entire US economy has been gutted and shipped overseas, not for "profits" as claimed by the Marxist narrative, but just in order to destroy this once-powerful country which was a virtually unassailable bastion of the Gospel. In its place, they have built a circus of welfare-handouts and pretend-jobs. This isn't about race, it's not about economic theories, it's not even about political ideology: it's about the Gospel.

    Way to completely miss the point. "Climbing over the fence" means coming here illegally. People who want to come here to work because of better jobs/pay are eager to follow all legal procedures because they don't want to get revoked later on due to even a minor paperwork mistake. Overseas, people pay good money to immigration consultants to help them fill out all the legal immigration forms correctly and completely for this very reason. They want to be sure they have the best chance of immigrating legally and staying on a pathway to citizenship once they get here. People who want handouts don't care about any of that because the handouts are mainly based on children and so anyone who can sire children can live on the dole. American men are no longer willing to seed American women for a host of (quite valid) reasons. Foreigners are more than happy to come here and do the honors in our place, and get paid to sit on the couch and collect welfare checks for the children they breed here. If you think this is not demographic warfare, you are so clued out that I don't know what to say to help you...

    Just zeroing in on this, for a moment. This is an obvious false-dichotomy. The problem is both open borders and the welfare state. The two go hand-in-hand. When you don't have a welfare-state, you don't have people trying to climb over the fence. Without a welfare-state, immigrants may still desire to enter your country if it is prosperous but, since they are seeking lawful employment, they will not even try to climb over the fence. But if you're just coming here for the free stuff, why bother with legal entry? Enter by hook or by crook. The fact that the neoCON/RINO establishment will not even discuss the welfare-state shows that they have absolutely and totally capitulated this issue to the Left and all the saber-rattling about "tEh BoRdEr" is just empty bluster and machismo whose purpose is to placate the few on the Right who have not yet completely buried their heads in the sand. I'm not saying Trump is insincere, and I'm not saying a wall is a bad idea. But if they're just building a wall so we don't have to argue over the actual issue (the omnipotent warfare-welfare-State), then what's the point? Instead of meeting the enemy in the center of the battlefield, we have been diverted to some side-issue, yet again. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big proponent of strategic jiu-jitsu when it's appropriate. "Win by yielding" is often the most powerful strategy. But when the only thing you're doing is yielding, then there is no intention to win at all and those who keep telling us "Just yield, this is not the hill to die on" for every hill are just turncoats and traitors. If there is no hill worth dying on, then we are no longer men and the trans-Agenda forcibly converting "men" into their true female form is not wrong...

    It's just a false-dichotomy. If you own a very large ranch and you can successfully defend its extents through self-produced or private security, local law-enforcement, local political cover, and so on, then you are effectively sovereign no matter how much DC seethes about it. Many American families have been quietly following this model of de facto sovereignty for generations. It is anti-State and libertarian to the core, no matter what label they apply to themselves. The whole world has only ever been an anarchy. Some were just better at playing The Game. We usually call them emperors, conquerors, dictators, etc. "The State" is just a comfortable illusion, a bedtime story people tell themselves so they can feel like "____ can't happen here because we have a State", where _____ could be war, terrorism, running violence in the streets, etc. It is just an illusion and was never anything other than an illusion. The sooner that "realist conservatives" wake up and start dealing with reality instead of willingly having the wool pulled over their eyes by Clown World, the better for all of us. The illusion of The State can't be defeated by pretending harder...

    Thank you for acknowledging this is AI-generated. Unfortunately, due to unreliability of LLMs, every single fact-claim of an LLM must be manually checked before being believed. I've had LLMs invent entire scientific papers and journals that have never existed. AI hallucination is real. <snip discussion of hell> Well, we've gone far afield of the topic of the thread. Suffice it to say that you and I will not agree on any of these topics. Hell is real. It's exactly what it is described to be: burning, forever, in unimaginable torment, unendurable agony.

    Not really, no, but I'm not going to press the matter. I think that this idea that there is some kind of cut-and-dried external litmus test, other than those given to us in 1 Cor. 12:3, 1 John 4:2,3, etc. is misleading. I don't know that Trump is a false professor. I don't know that he's a true professor, either, but that's not the same thing as knowing he's a false professor. I have not heard him remark on matters of 1 Cor. 12:3 or 1 John 4:2,3, so I don't see how anybody can "remote diagnose" Trump's soul from the armchair.

    I want to make a few remarks on the idea that consent (as a litmus test for civil law) opens Pandora's Box (culturally). The argument, in itself is not baseless, and Wokism proves this. There are social problems that have the "camel's nose in the tent" problem -- if you allow even a small amount of certain kinds of cultural corruption, it will lead to an explosion of cultural corruption. This is not false. However, this is a bit of a red herring in respect to the role of consent in libertarian law, and I think that Smith didn't crank Wilson's arm hard enough on this particular point. Basically, the issue is this: it may be ever-so-undesirable for there to be homosexuals having sex with each other in the privacy of their homes, but the question facing public policy is whether or not the State is the right tool to fix this social problem? And the answer is almost always NO. The State is almost never the right tool to fix any given social problem. And there are many reasons why this is the case. First, the State is unable to fix social problems like homosexuality. There is no amount of throwing people in jail that is going to make them stop being sexually evil. And even if the State could make them stop (e.g. by beheading, etc.), if it comes at the cost of completely corrupting the image of God in man by violence, how are we any better? We have cured one form of beastliness (sexual depravity) at the expense of descending into another form of beastliness (violent depravity). This point alone suffices to prove the libertarian position. "Everyone should own puppies and eat Skittles in order to fix <social problem X>" is irrational and absurd because owning a puppy and eating Skittles can't solve <social problem X>. Thus, in itself, this moots the entire idea that there can possibly be any moral duty for people to support owning puppies and eating Skittles. So, the entire statist enterprise is sunk on this point alone. But, second, the State not only can't fix most social problems, it almost always actively makes them worse. The drug war is a great example of this. Let's suppose that drugs are the single, greatest social issue. Let's suppose that each time somebody self-injects Morphine, this is worse than the entire Holocaust. It's an evil so great that practically any legal measure, no matter how extreme, is justified. We could publicly burn people for injecting Morphine, and it would be morally justified. That's what we're assuming, here. Now, given this great evil, the worst thing we could do is institute a public policy that results in more people injecting Morphine, right? Since that would be increasing the amount of Holocausts happening all over the country, every day. But this is precisely what the "War on Drugs" has done. As laws and punishments have increased, as government budgets have increased, drug usage has also increased pro rata (linear), or even more than linear. Vastly more people use drugs of all kinds today than used drugs prior to the "War on Drugs", both in absolute numbers and by proportion. If it were true that increased drug use is the worst possible social problem you can have, then the highest moral duty would be to stop the "War on Drugs" because it's only making things worse. The data on this and similar social issues is completely univocal. The more that a government tries to "ban" something, the more widespread its use becomes, precisely because its contraband status makes it even more of a boutique item, and access to it becomes a powerful symbol of status and prestige. There is no faster way to prove that you are very rich and powerful than to bring out a large supply of coke. And the more contraband it is, the more profoundly your access to it demonstrates how rich and powerful you must be. Third, the State is always ultimately just a camouflage for private interests. This is the "key that unlocks" the previous points. To the statist (who is invariably a collectivist), the perversity of...
