What Libertarians Believe – NOT!

January 20, 2009

L. Neil Smith and Rylla Cathryn Smith have a piece up entitled: What Libertarians Believe. The problem is that they are… Idiots.

Some of what they write is correct:

“If there is a central tenet, or key belief that all libertarians share, it is that each and every individual is the owner—the “sole proprietor”—of his or her own life and of ‘all the products of that life’.”

Some is mostly correct:

“Most libertarians agree that all rights are, in effect, property rights, beginning with this fundamental right to self-ownership and control of one’s own life. “

The correct version of the above should read:

All libertarians agree that all rights are, in effect, property rights, beginning with this fundamental right to self-ownership and control of one’s own life. “

Some is just plain dangerously wrong:

“A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being for any reason whatever; nor will a libertarian advocate the initiation of force, or delegate it to anyone else.”

The original American Libertarians (the Founding Fathers) had no qualms about initiating force against whomever they deemed necessary be it the British, Hessians, indians or anyone else. This “Zero Aggression Principle” is Surrender-Monkey fantasy bull-crap thought up by the “hide behind mom’s skirt” crowd.

Of course, these are generally the people who scream that we should completely open our borders and “let everyone be free” completely ignoring the cold hard economic facts of flooding the country with poor people with 3rd world mentalities.

F’ing idiots.

Altas is Shrugging

January 14, 2009

Many of us who know Rand’s work have noticed that with each passing week, and with each successive bailout plan and economic-stimulus scheme out of Washington, our current politicians are committing the very acts of economic lunacy that “Atlas Shrugged” parodied in 1957, when this 1,000-page novel was first published and became an instant hit.

The current economic strategy is right out of “Atlas Shrugged”: The more incompetent you are in business, the more handouts the politicians will bestow on you. That’s the justification for the $2 trillion of subsidies doled out already to keep afloat distressed insurance companies, banks, Wall Street investment houses, and auto companies — while standing next in line for their share of the booty are real-estate developers, the steel industry, chemical companies, airlines, ethanol producers, construction firms and even catfish farmers. With each successive bailout to “calm the markets,” another trillion of national wealth is subsequently lost. Yet, as “Atlas” grimly foretold, we now treat the incompetent who wreck their companies as victims, while those resourceful business owners who manage to make a profit are portrayed as recipients of illegitimate “windfalls.”
