    *Sigh* This post is chock full of strawmen. I'm not even sure I want to go through it point by point, at least not right now. The world may be changing, but human nature has not changed. There are still a number of powerful people who have an agenda, and that agenda is a nightmare. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on what's going to happen in the future. As I said, that's getting into a whole other topic...that should probably go on its own thread.

    There you go. (The part I bolded). And that's just part of it. Regardless of what you call it, you're going to end up with some sort of authority/coercion Why, because there are always going to be people who want to take advantage of others, harm others, or rule over others. I think that the type of anarchy you guys want will only work on a very small scale. But if you can find a group of people with good intentions, who are all basically on the same page, then it could work out wonderfully. I say go for it. But it's not going to work on a large scale… it just isn't. And as I said earlier on the thread, it's not going to happen anyway. Unfortunately, the world is heading in the opposite direction. We can fight against it, but I believe that it's probably not going to be overthrown by us. I believe it will be eventually though, by the true power of this world. But that's a topic for a whole other thread.

    Yeah, I gave up on voting after I saw what they did to Ron Paul. And I really hate to say this, but I've pretty much given up on the whole shebang. I think we're past the point of no return. Yes, I have been. You seem to pop in only every once in a while. In fact, maybe you just didn't see it, but I replied to one of your long posts, point by point, way back on page 10, but you never replied. Here it is: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?515014-Should-Libertarians-support-anarcho-capitalism&p=6539312&viewfull=1#post6539312 I think there might've been a different post of yours to me that I didn't reply to… I have to go back and look. But your basic point was that a state is not needed for people to do commerce. That is kind of a strawman, because the thing that you're not getting (or maybe just ignoring) is that state or no state, you're going to end up having some sort of authority or coercive element, because it is completely unrealistic to think that everyone is going to hold hands and sing Kumbaya. So if you're going to have some form of government, it just comes down to what is better… one that is limited and based on a true foundation and has a system of checks and balances… Or a poorly thought out system that will inevitably boil down to might makes right?

    I've also noticed that Burning Man is used as an example of successful anarchy. I'm beginning to think that our "anarchists" smoked a little too much Wacky tobacky in their lifetime. :o ;)

    No these are not the same thing at all. St. Patrick's day and Octoberfest is about the heritage of a nation (Ireland and Germany), it is not intended to be race specific. Somewhat comparable to Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday. Unless they had immigrated form elsewhere, blacks are themselves Americans, they are not "African Americans", and they really need to stop viewing themselves as such. Cinco De Mayo is a misunderstood holiday that is not even celebrated in Mexico (with exception to one small city where the French skirmish ensued.) There is no problem with respects to enjoying or inventing Italian food, a there is no problem enjoying Thai, Creole, or Soul food. Ergo, such cuisines are respective to the nationalistic origins of the recipes and has nothing to due with race per say. There is however a huge issue with creating a racially divisive cable channel. Imagine the outrage of having a White Entertainment Channel or magazine--such would be called out as being KKK inspired, regardless, and would be quickly shutdown by the FCC.

    Prior to the start of the 2017 season there were boycotts being launched because Kaepernick didn't have a job after he refused to stand last season. Those protests are still going on. So there is no way to tell which protests are causing the NFL to lose viewers.

    Ad hominems prove you have lost the argument. Again "Every new territory the confederacy was to acquired had to, by the confederate constitution, allow slavery."

    The whole point of the fugitive slave clause of the constitution was to undermine state sovereignty. It was a reaction to the case Somerset v Stewart. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somerset_v_Stewart In that case a slave escaped from Virginia to England and the slave owner wanted the slave returned by the English judge refused. A sovereign state should have the right to decide what to do with a fugitive. Any law on repatriation of fugitives is, by definition, an abrogation of state sovereignty. We wouldn't turn a missionary over to Iran to be tried for evangelism for example.

    LOL. The north wanted to destroy the south's economy by forcing it into economic growth (industrialization)? That's really about the most retarded argument on the subject I've ever read.

    Why are you against the free market? BET exists because there is a distinct culture in America that came from a different part of the world than the majority. And people who complain about "black" culture but don't complain about St Patrick's Day or Octoberfest or Cinco De Mayo or Italian food are, in my opinion, being wilfully blind at best and downright hypocritical at worst. Besides, at this point "blacks" don't even own BET. In the context of police brutality, Ron Paul was correct in acknowledging that it does disproportionately affect blacks. There is a wider issue that it affects everyone too.

    It depends upon what you identify as "BLM." Many people out protesting were definitely against the disproportionate use of law enforcement against blacks that Dr. Paul described. The co-opted BLM "movement"...not so much. But look at the "tea party." Ron Paul is called the godfather of the tea party and yet many of the so called "leaders" are drug warrior pro-interventionists.

    I haven't seen evidence that Bannon himself is a racist. I've looked for it. I have seen people on this forum who are clearly racists. Whenever someone uses a term like "white genocide" that person is engaging in right wing identity politics. People who support David Duke (and I've seen that here) are engaging in right wing identity politics. Bannon called the Charlottesville alt-right protesters "clowns." It was the asshole Trump that said they were "good people."

    I wish things were a lot more local too. I'm really not looking for a country of 300 million at all. I think that's too big. Those who didn't want to live by Christian law could live somewhere else and choose God's judgment over his blessings.

    And while I do believe the BIble requires civil authorities to punish homosexuality, and with death as the maximum penalty, I don't think it would be legitimate even for the government to just round up people in a gay bar.

    Will you kindly give a tongue lashing to the racist of the board, AmericanSpartan? Thank you. I'd like to see it.
  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.

In the twilight of the Cold War, the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.
