    IMO, there is no such thing as "be too much of a secessionist-purist " ... ... and I doubt that there are many (if any) in the Mises Caucus who would have significant disagreements with any of that. I certainly don't. The platform isn't about what ought to be true with respect to any and all permissible (and as yet hypothetical) socio-political systems that might exist in the future. It's about what the members of the Mises Caucus presently think the Libertarian Party in particular ought to be focused on the most with respect to all the anti-liberty policies currently being imposed and enacted by the U.S. government (from the federal to local levels). What socio-political system(s) ought or ought not to be promoted and erected (and how any of that should be done) is an entirely separate matter, and is well beyond the proper scope of the LPMC platform.

    Meh. Sounds like standard issue pablum - more dull and lame than anything else, and hardly worth getting one's knickers in a twist over. It's a pretty safe bet that there was absolutely nothing whatsoever in AOC's presentation to Amash's class that they hadn't already heard a million times before (and won't hear a million times more to come). Much more interesting and worthy of comment is that Amash has had Michael Malice as a guest presenter to his class. Now there's someone who is far more likely to have said something actually worth hearing and thinking about - something that hadn't already been heard by the class a million times before (or even at all, for that matter). If Amash wants to present interesting, thought-provoking perspectives from lefty types, he'd do better to invite people like Thaddeus Russell or Glenn Greenwald, rather than AOC. On the other hand, if merely promoting the nostrums of being "allies in the better governance" is the objective, then I guess AOC is as good (or as bad) as anyone else for that purpose.

    This. Invisible Man will tell you he is hungry but tell you he is unable to fish and ask you to show him how. Then when you have caught a mess he will say "That's not the kinda fish I was wanting."

    It's refreshing to have an adult step into the room. Fuck AOC and all the Marxist like her. And those like Amash that think she can be worked with. She's not the one that is going to give an inch to you while she gains inch by inch.

    How so? There would still be factions within any seceded areas that would support things such as fiat-based central banking and gun control. Even granting that tribalism might not necessarily always be a bad thing, I'm inclined to think it turns out to be a bad thing far more often than it turns out to be a good thing (or even just a neutral one). However, I suppose one could argue that this is only because it is so often "weaponized" by the state (or by various factions seeking control of state power). Even so, tribalism manifested in the form of "weaponized tribal collectivism" would nevertheless still be objectionable, even if mere "tribalism" was not. In any case, though, tribalism is certainly a form of collectivism (whether it is "weaponized" or not), so I would not be at all opposed to removing the word "tribal" from the phrase "weaponized tribal collectivism" if only because it is redundant.

    That's why the Mises Caucus platform (see post #2 above) does not mention either of those issues. The national LP should eliminate the abortion and immigration planks from its platform, too (and just let individual nominees/candidates stake out their own positions on those issues). Maybe that will actually happen, if the Mises Caucus can win enough state delegations to one of the national conventions. Secession. Separation. Nullification. Non-compliance.

    This time, it didn't explode. (Scott Manley is also a big fan of KSP, BTW. ABCDEFG.) SpaceX's Starship Prototype Takes To The Skies And Returns Safely After A week of preparation the latest Starship Prototype SN15 successfully demonstrated the complete landing maneuver required for Starship to operate. The flight was mostly hidden behind a layer of clouds which blocked cameras on the ground, and because the onboard cameras weren't delivering video data as expected. However after a flight to 10 kilometers and a descent in a high drag belly flop orientation the vehicle relit its engines, returned to the vertical and carefully came to a stop on the landing pad.

    To paraphrase Albert Einstein, "A position should be as simple as possible, but no simpler than necessary." It is a perfectly sensible and valid criticism of Breitbart et al. that they seem not to have nearly as much of a problem with this kind of policy, so long as whitey is not excluded from the line for handouts (or relegated to the back of that line). But that is properly a criticism only of Breitbart et al., and not of objections to the overt racism of the policy. As proper and correct as it is to criticize and reject this policy (and others like it) on grounds that such handout programs shouldn't exist at all in the first place, that alone is not sufficient to exhaust the genus of serious problems inherent to the policy. Such an approach is certainly simple, but it is also "simpler than necessary." The racialist and other "intersectional" bigotries being inculcated by the addition of Woke qualifications to already-objectionable policies are an entirely legitimate cause for concern and alarm.

    Unregistered 164: Laney Sweet I was honored to be joined by Laney Sweet, whose husband Daniel Shaver was shot to death by a Mesa, Arizona police officer in 2016. The officer was acquitted of murder and is now receiving a pension from the Mesa Police Department. To do this date, Laney has received no financial compensation from Mesa or any other government entity. If we’re ever going to have a national movement that will meaningfully reform the criminal justice system, we will need to listen to people like Laney Sweet and we will need to make people like Daniel Shaver as famous as George Floyd.

    Speaking from the Cathedral's strategic POV, completely ignoring him is about the best and smartest thing they could do. Actually engaging with him or any of his material (including his LoS stuff) would be disastrous for them. Dave doesn't care what they think of him, and the non-Woke will see right through their artificial "outrage." Many red pills would be dispensed as a result. The Cathedral is nothing if not un-self-aware, though, so they might well make the mistake of trying to cancel him.
