    How are the examples you cited systemic? When I hear systemic, I think "built into" the system. When universities have diversity programs that will put specifically black students in front of asian and white students, that not some person acting on his or her own prejudice. It's a fukking policy. In other words, the system is designed to be prejudiced. Anything can be used as a tool of racism. It doesn't mean the tool itself is racist. It's okay though. Wokeness gets the best of us. Keep doing your thing man.

    I guess blowback applies to riots, wokeness, and media censorship. Who knew?

    Maybe this is a sign. I was listening Dave Rubin's podcast and the Dilbert guy was on. He said he did a poll where he asked if people actively lied about who they were voting for this election cycle and hundreds answered yes. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump supporters fukked with the pollsters. This could have a very funny, and thereby, very violent end.

    Look, my point is that statistics tell lies. Just because a policy affects one group more than another doesn't mean it's systemically racist, or racist at all. Social security is more likely to benefit whites than blacks. Why? Because white people have longer life expectancy. They collect for a longer period of time. Is social security morally wrong. Yeah. Same thing with the drug war. But is social security racist? No. We can't look at all disparities, cite the statistics on how one group is more affected than another, then say that's systemic racism. Groups behave differently.

    I don't know if you live in a big city or not, but people getting arrested for drug using or drug dealing is highly circumstantial. You can see it in the way drugs are dealt. Black drug dealers tend to deal on the street or be involved with gangs and many of them deal in their neighborhoods. That may not be the case with white drug dealers. Maybe white people are better at not getting caught? Just sayin. If I were a judge or prosecutor, I'd much rather lock away a drug dealer with obvious gang ties than some white kid from the suburbs caught in the ghetto trying to score some heroin. Maybe you're not going to like this but Larry Elder refuted the point you're making on the Adam Carolla show. Maybe you believe him, maybe you don't. But the guy is black and grew up in Compton. Just sayin.

    I don't think the drug war or the war on poverty are systemically racist. It's just that some people take the bait more than others.

    Not with the school system we have now. Obviously. School choice would be better. Private schools could be better. Religious schools could be better. There is no other option for many kids right now, which is a big reason why we're in the position we're in. I'm was thinking about the Chicago Teachers Union. We have a bunch of teachers who refuse to teach in-class because they don't want their lives or their students lives (as if they cared and it was their decision) endangered. Teachers if I remember correctly tend to be on the younger side. I don't remember there being 80 year old teachers when I was in school. Plus most of them start teaching once they themselves leave school. They haven't done anything in the real world. So in other words, we have cowards and retards teaching the kids. Trust me, I have friends with kids in the public schools who realize now that they weren't getting much more than a daycare center. The whole covid thing exposed them for what they are. People are waking up.

    Yes, and there are always going to be natural hierarchies. Which is why I'm not an an-cap anymore, especially after I started reading Taleb. I think a small level of governance is always going to be present, and it would be suicide to be in an an-cap society when there are aspiring nationalistic superpowers in the world. I basically want whatever authority there is to be as close to their constituents as possible, and for them to tell people to take care of themselves and make the vast majority of their own decisions.

    Well, yeah. Same way a parent doesn't let their kid loose into the world at 5 years old. Parents teach their kids how to be self sufficient and responsible (at least they used to) then in the late teens they are ready to take on the world. A free society means the vast majority of people need life lessons. That's where culture comes in and that's why I keep pushing the cultural approach to introducing libertarianism. Cultural transformation is like the training wheels. Can't afford to not get involved in the culture game. The opposing forces have already gotten a huge head start. And they are so effective that.... http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?549983-Reason-Editor-Attacks-Ron-Paul-and-His-Supporters-(Again)

    Seems critical theory has penetrated the Libertarian movement. Not you guys:happy:. Them. My opinion is, if you've never been called a racist (or sexist, or Nazi, or whatever), then you are afraid to speak the truth. The truth hurts, that's why people throw around the word 'racist'. Easier to label than take responsibility.

    As a fellow libertarian (of the paleo variety), it seems like we try to convince people of going from A to Z instead of going from A to B, then B to C, then C to D and so forth. Abolish the welfare state, abolish the income tax, private law enforcement, etc. I'm not so sure people are gonna go for that, not because they're can't expand their minds to think of such things, but because......they're sensible. The cure is dosage dependent. In other words, two tylenols will relieve the aches and pains, but 50 might kill you. We can abolish the welfare state, but unless the underlying culture gets abolished at the same time, it won't work out and we would immediately have a revolution on our hands. Why don't we just get on board with people who are moving in the right direction and push it a little further instead of taking it to damn near an-cap? As a way to not alienate people we mostly agree with. Here's what I've learned as a former alcoholic/drug-addict. We didn't get into this problem overnight and won't get out of it overnight. No serious drug user quits using and immediately has his life transformed. It takes years usually. Sometimes quickly sometimes slowly, but it doesn't happen right away. Freedom in the US eroded over centuries. We won't make a dent with a few elections. Why don't we play the long game? Because I'm thinking that getting anywhere near free markets and personal liberty will take generations. Even if states were to peacefully secede, I know that they are going to carry a ton of baggage with them and not all of it will be good. Cultural rot has infected every level of this country. I was just thinking about the black community. I personally think that most of their problems come from a 70% illegitimacy rate. Even if starting today, every black woman having a child also has a man willing to actually stay and raise the child, it would still be a full generation before the real change comes. Yet it seems that the black "leaders" are demanding change NOW. Even if they got everything they wanted in the next presidency, I would be willing to bet everything I have that not much would change. The same root problems would still be there. The obsession with immediate gratification infects the culture we live in today. I don't think libertarians are immune. Our Marxist nemeses may have outsmarted and outworked us liberty loving folks.

    Yep. When I opened the twitter link, I thought it was going to be a video where he specifically states people driving on highways would have to wear masks. Completely misleading. I never got that impression from what he actually said. I don't like Biden and I hope he loses, but I'm not going for cheap swipes at him. Same thing when I saw a headline where Kamala says 220 million people died of covid. C'mon, like she's the only person who has gotten million and thousand mixed up before. Geez.

    I disagree. Trump talked like he had some confidence. Biden looked weak and it was obvious he got coached into saying a bunch of talking points. I wonder if he got the questions beforehand.

    Did Biden just tell teachers they're gonna die? You come on Joe. The average age of mortality from Cov-aids is in the late 70s. Teachers tend to be a lot younger than that.
