    There are issues relating to (dis)economies of scale, and they are solvable for a minarchist state. Wait a while I would suggest you stop reading Breitbart and take in your hand a history book.

    But anyone not born within the arbitrary geographical area which the Stalinist state claims as its territory has no right to help him, right? But individuals can be impressed into the service of their local state to provide for the security of others (as by paying taxes)?

    There was a technological limit (i.e. lack of telecommunications), which is no longer relevant. By the way, hate to be the one to break the news, but the U.S. has more or less conquered the world. Only a few states remain (China, Russia, maybe Germany). The problem is that the U.S. is hopelessly inept and unable to govern these states, even if it won the war. ...which, at this point, it wouldn't.

    Right, of course, we've been down this road. You insist, in order to maintain your nationalist bone fides, and despite all liberalism or just common sense, that people have a "right to be enslaved," and so forth (their national preference, of course). And, of course, this right is based on entirely arbitrarily geography. Bob Smith has certain rights because he was born in England, while Bob Kim Sung has the right to remain a slave of a Stalinist state because he happened to be born at the wrong intersection of latitude and longitude. That's a sound moral theory..

    Somehow, you don't appreciate the difference between a war which ends war (genuinely, contra Woodrow's horseshit phrase), and perpetual war. As long as there are states capable of fighting wars, there will be wars. The end of war means the elimination of all states capable of fighting wars: save, one, which would then rule. As I said earlier, albeit in Latin which may have flown past you: with domination comes peace. Nietzsche had a similar view, and well expressed (I don't have a citation for you at the moment on that). But, on the other hand, it is simply common sense. Only an idiot or hopeless ideologue would deny the proposition that victory (of someone) makes peace. Your denial is viscerally similar to the insane objections of anarchists, when presented with the logic of the impossibility of anarchism. It is in fact exactly the same reasoning - someone will inevitably take control of the given territory and form a state. There is no difference between this and my view now, except space. Apparently, you think the rule "the strongest shall conquer and form a state" applies everywhere, but somehow not with respect to states which you for some well-intended but misguided reason want to see remain independent. It makes no sense. The Roman Empire collapsed (and prior to that, was divided in two) for lack of the telegraph. The current government will collapse, as all democratic governments do, by the hands of socialist spendthrifts.

    Good thing you straightened them out. They might have gotten the idea that I believed in the form of government which has resulted in our present predicament. Boy, would that be embarrassing! Anyone who endorses the match can't really complain about the fire, can he?

    You also believe that force is justified to maintain the desired social order; or have you gone native (anarchist)? That would be an interpretation of my views not based on what I've said, but sure....

    What, like Messicuns? No, my history may be a bit shaky, but I'm fairly certain there were no Messicuns in the internal politics of France c. 1500.

    You may need to revisit your study of history. Most (if not all) presently existing "nations" are unions of peoples who once hated one another. E.G. The United Kingdom (Britons, Scots, Welsh, Irish, et al), Italy (Venetians, Milanese, Florentines, Sienese, Romans, Neapolitans, et al), France (Parisians, Bretons, Occitans, Provencals, Lyonois, Burgundians, et al), Germany (Prussians, Hanoverians, Bavarians, Wurtembergers, Alsatians, et al), Russia (....an endless list of peoples). You get the idea. In each case (the above and any number of others), they were brought together by the dominance of a central power. Do you know that most "French" people didn't speak "French" until the 19th century (when the republican government outlawed local languages and herded speakers of, for instance, Occitan, into "French" (i.e. Parisian) public schools)? Did you know that most "Italians" still don't speak "Italian" (which is an artificial language based on the Florentine dialect) to this day? Go ask an Italian and he'll tell you that he's a Roman or a Milanese before it occurs to him to mention this abomination called "Italy."

    It depends on how thorough and dedicated they are. If all the major idiot-media venues keep the faith, he won't rise again (at least not on a scale large enough to matter). If they eventually fold, and apologize and announce changes to their terms of use...blah blah - then major victory for Cries-A-Lot.

    cum domino pax ista venit It is naive to think that Europe, disunited, would remain at peace for long. ...the same with the American states, sans federal government, by the way. That was already attempted. It didn't go well; and I don't mean only that the wrong side won. That war occurred at all was a failure.

    I certainly hope not. But, yes, censorship (in this context, no distinction between by the state or privately) does tend to make martyrs.

    Maybe the Aryan Nation and Antifa can get together to knit sweaters for homeless kittens... If the EU breaks up, the only thing preventing the third general European war will be nuclear weapons, MAD. And that will be eliminated by technological improvements in missile defense in the coming decades, so... It's really rather ironic; "pro-European" types will end up killing a couple hundred million Europeans before they're done, if they win. And then, China will inherit the Earth.

    So, assuming Federal Election Commission regulations are just (as you evidently do), prosecute them for their regulatory violations. ...what does this have to do with their decision to decline to allow some guy named Alex to use their property? If I make illegal campaign contributions to some party, are you going to demand that the feds force me to let you live on my lawn?

    There is no reason for a libertarian to care about Jones, except in the abstract re freedom of speech, which is not implicated here. As for the "false advertising;" if you can find a clause of their user-agreement which they violated, pass it along to Cries-A-Lot for a civil suit. Otherwise, if it's just that their conduct did not (in your estimate) conform to their (deliberately) vague public relations statements, tough titty...

    If the EU breaks, watch the German army quintuple in size in a year (and add nuclear weapons to its arsenal). Then the French will, after a suitably French delay, re-arm as well. And then we're back to 1914. Then, once again, openly traitorous Italy will have been the doom of Europe, perfidious Albion lurking in the wings to pick the corpses. Or.... the European peoples will turn away from nationalism.

    Have at it. Meanwhile, those of us who recognize Jones for the duplicitous used car selling weasel that he is are free to describe reality. 1. I must have missed the memo on false advertising. Enlighten me. 2. As for the "free market responses" available to you, as I said, have at it.

    There is government involvement with every business entity and individual in the country. It does not therefore follow that the property rights of said entities or individuals are dissolved. To have the populous, via government, force private property owners to serve people they don't wish to serve is disgusting and shameful. Any libertarian who is not a supreme hypocrite would recognize this (no matter his love for Chief Cries-A-Lot).

    Why SHOULD Alex Jones have a platform? If the government were threatening to imprison/fine him for his activities, I'd be defending him on free speech grounds (albeit without much enthusiasm), but that isn't the case. Various owners of various pieces of private property (youtube, facebook, et al) have simply decided to revoke his license to use their property (he used it at their pleasure, having no right to do so: like a guest at a house party), and I would do the same if it were my property, and so I applaud their decisions. Now, if it were my property, I'd also revoke the licenses of the democrat versions of Alex Jones, which youtube at el won't do, but one victory at a time. Piss on Jones; may he lose much money, go bankrupt, and end his career hawking dickpills on late night infomercials, where he belongs.
