    ...and the next several series after that, all of which resulted in nothing. Any slippage in Dez's performance is a function of the garbage passer.

    No, it was more than the first 3 and out. There are lots of people who deeply regret throwing out Dez. The people who blame all passing failures on everybody but the passer don't have this view.

    If we understand one another correctly, you're arguing for the proposition that courts, based on traditional principles of tort liability, would find shareholders liable for torts committed by the corporation simply because they are shareholders? Can you explain how that makes sense in a specific case? E.G. For a 1/100,000,000th shareholder of oil-spilling Exxon, who did literally nothing except buy a share, what would the tort be? How would you establish causation? At the same time the state created (really, stopped prohibiting) corporations, it gave them limited liability by statute. That is, there was never a situation where corporations existed but didn't have statutory limited liability, so we don't know what the common law would have done with that. I'm less interested in what courts actually would have done than with what we get by applying traditional tort rules in the abstract. If there were a single entity type, there could be a single tort rule.

    Indeed In a statutory law system, the legislature makes the law, subject to no higher authority. In a common law system, the judges make the law, subject to no higher authority. ...the only possible higher authority, the legislature, has decided not to give the judge laws to follow.

    The passing sucked before Cooper went out. And Dallas usually has a home field disadvantage (the theory is that the stadium is so nice the fans don't pay much attention to the game, lol). Nonetheless, I see a win - Dallas gets extra motivated against Filthy.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. Statutes and common law are both made by the state: one by its legislative branch, the other by its judicial branch. Either way, the state is one deciding how to resolve the dispute. That's a romantic view of the common law.

    fisharmor Why do you prefer common law to statutes? Today, statutes tend to be unlibertarian modifications of a fairly libertarian common law, but I'd argue that that's an historical accident (the common law is older than the statutes and reflects the more libertarian values of an earlier age), not a reflection of the inherent tendencies of the two types of law. It's not hard to imagine a situation where the opposite is true. Suppose the common law keeps evolving in a leftward direction and then, in a century, libertarians take over the legislatures and start amending that leftist common law to make it more libertarian. So, it seems to me that it doesn't make any difference in the long run.

    @Swordsmyth "Aggression is wrong, unless the majority says otherwise" is not a libertarian position. I don't know how you can seriously debate this. You might as well claim that communism is consistent with libertarianism, so long as the majority approve of it.

    The rule giving shareholders qua shareholders immunity to tort liability is an expression of the common law of tort liability. If you scrapped the rule and directly applied the common law, you'd get more or less the same results. Mind you, I'm not arguing one way or another, for either the rule or the common law. My point is simply that it's misleading to call the rule a "privilege," since: (a) it treats shareholders more or less the same as the common law would,

    That's an argument for the distinction between shareholders and partners, for the "privilege" of limited (tort) liability, no? Courts could look at individual shareholders and individual partners in each case and try to decide who has enough control to justify liability, but, since shareholders normally have much less control than partners, and since predictability is important, the legislatures have created the rule that partners are liable qua partners and shareholders aren't liable qua shareholders. The same with respondeat superior. The courts could look at each employer individually, or they could apply a predictable rule which makes sense in most situations. I'm not sure what a company being publicly traded has to do with it; they also have dominant shareholders. ...

    They don't make anyone pay for anything, as that's an entirely voluntary transaction, which has nothing to do with the topic at hand (taxes). You might as well tell me that, because it's nice to split the bar bill evenly, communism is just. ...you're conflating totally unrelated issues.

    Trump supported the Libya invasion, took both sides on Iraq, bombed Syria, broke the Iran deal, increased military spending, sent more troops to the ME, droned more people than any of his predecessors, and surrounded himself with neocons - hardly a shining beacon of non-interventionism. His anti-war noises were fine when he was a candidate. If anti-war people were dumb enough to believe that he was an anti-war person, and this energized them, great. Now, those noises don't so much energize as co-opt (in the same way that Trump's yapping about capitalism tarnishes actual supporters of the market economy). Tulsi may be the same (except she'll never win, so we'll never get to the problematic phase).

    Then, as I made clear, you cannot with a straight face claim to be a libertarian. You are a democrat (lower-case d), i.e. a person who believes that what is right is whatever the majority says is right.

    She talks a good anti-war game. I don't particularly care whether she means it or not. She's not going to be the Dem nominee, but she has the potential to awaken the long-dormant anti-war Dems. And that's a valuable thing, which libertarians should encourage. If she happens to be authentic, bonus.
