    A "deep state" is present when there has been a serious error in statecraft. No one who appears to have power should lack it and no one who has power should appear not to.

    There are toxic and healthy strains of both individualism and collectivism. Individuals and collectives are symbiotic. The "individual" as libertarians understand it is not some building block of a collective, but instead emerges from the group under certain specific circumstances. Unhealthy collectives breed unhealthy individuals and vice-versa. Progressivism is a perfect example. It's an ideology takes radical, atomistic individualism to the point of believing that all social categories must be deconstructed at the whim of a single person and combines it with totalitarian fealty to the ideologically pure progressive collective. In short, the way libertarians classically understand this dichotomy is false.

    Totally degenerate. There was a time when only the lowest of women -- whores and those who associated with whores -- would even think about behaving this way. There's a reason why sane societies throughout history have men take stewardship over women. That stewardship has been given up and we have a generation of depraved, violent single mothers and teenage sluts who get gangbanged before they're old enough to have a learner's permit. Progress indeed.

    Nobody was excited about her candidacy. NY isn't just left-leaning, they're left-leaning and love the establishment. The populist wave sweeping the US and the West as a whole missed NY, or at least the Five Boroughs, which we all know runs the state anyway.

    If anyone is thinking about it, a progressive/libertarian alliance is a pipedream. People keep trying to make it work, up to and including Rothbard and Ron Paul. And it always falls apart.

    Serena Williams was being beaten by the superior player and decided to go full black woman stereotype while the world watched. What a sad, pathetic display.

    Ancapistan book burnings every Thursday! Burn The Machinery of Freedom especially, since David Friedman doesn't "hate the state." Yeah, it is NAP compliant. Whether that absolves book burnings or indicts the NAP is a separate issue.

    So they say. If this person was real, why would they reveal themselves, even anonymously? All it would do is make Trump paranoid about anyone in the cabinet who pushes back on his agenda. Unless, of course, that was the exact purpose of the article. To sow dissent within the administration and call for more firings. That strikes me as more likely. Either way, the NYT is definitely trying to sabotage the regime in a way that I don't think is comparable to any news organization in history.

    I haven't seen any thread about this anywhere. A few days ago, Alex Jones had a closeup of his phone during his show and navigated to some open tabs he happened to have. This was one of them: If you can't read it, it says "Naughty tbabe Marissa". I'll give you three guesses what the "T" stands for. There are no two ways about it, Alex Jones watches tranny porn on his phone. Here's an amusing rundown of the whole situation, along with all the evidence: His explanation was even funnier:

    No, but it does need to be put in its proper place as one aspect of a thriving society, not the totality of said society as a whole. Modern understandings of economics as added to by Mises and the like need to be synthesized with more ancient conceptions of liberty and more "traditional" modes of statecraft. It's time to come to the realization that significant chunks of liberalism were just wrong. More and more, we're living in the shadow of the French Revolution, not British liberties.

    Yes. Highly overrated. Not "bad", but the cult of Reagan has done far more harm toward American conservatism than good.

    I don't buy news organization polls. No, not Fox either. I'll believe this when Pew or Rasmussen back it up.

    I won't gloat the way some people have, but McCain did incalculable damage to the Arizona Republican Party. He replaced Barry Goldwater, took a relatively right-wing state, then purged the state GOP of conservatives. The media's adoration of him (save for a brief period in 2008) should have gotten everyone's dander up.

    Yeah, I know. I used to be one too. I never said there was no such thing as anarchists. I probably know more about anarchism (not just anarcho-capitalism) than 99% of people on this site. This may all be true, but it has far more to do with the nature of democracy, the march of leftism than it has to do with conservatism. Cthulhu swims left, as Moldbug would say. It's a feature, not a bug, of liberal democracy. I'd be happy as a clam, was I a leftist. Too bad for them, they're constantly enraged. It exists as the rear guard of progressivism. The conservatives of today are the progressives of 20 years ago. Society lurches left, the conservatives come in to "conserve" the previous piece of leftist "progress" that the new leftists now claim is reactionary and regressive.

    From the abortion documentaries and "The Nostalgia Chick" to this. What a bizarre career she's had. Anyway, the "white genocide" meme is consistently from plebe-tier white nationalists who love the idea of a victim card for whites. That said, the left doesn't actually care about genocide as such. Next to nobody does. People care about bad stuff happening to groups they like.

    It's not a "no true Scotsman". It's a statement of fact. None of those people mentioned were considered conservatives, by contemporaries or by themselves. Rockefeller was very explicitly a moderate, running against the conservative wing of the GOP, led by Barry Goldwater. The only one who's even close is Eisenhower, but he was considered a pragmatic military man more than a conservative. I'm not talking about some platonic ideal of conservatism that they don't fit. No, they weren't conservatives because they weren't conservatives. American conservatism as an explicit movement is relatively young, though they trace their tradition back to John Adams and John C. Calhoun. There is such a thing as a conservative. Russell Kirk, Pat Buchanan, Roger Scruton, Peter Hitchens. All conservatives. That is not what we're doing. The idea that statelessness is something historical, but conservatism is not is a bizarre and false claim.
