LET’S GET DOWN TO IT. LIBERTARIANISM IS DEAD. AND WE WERE ALL USEFUL IDIOTS TO THE ENEMY
—“Let’s just get down to it. … libertarianism simply means you don’t f*** with people and leave them generally alone so long as they’re not messing with anyone and doing things wrong to other people directly and intentionally. The free market is the most important thing outside of that. We support family values and other things only for the purpose of having able bodies to then contribute to the free market with their mind in the right place.”— Kevin Flynn
^The problem is, that’s like marxism, in that it specifies goals, not means of achieving them (a sequence of testable operations) or the means of sustaining them. So it’s like saying “i wanna feel good’. It doesn’t mean anything other than whatever nonsense the individual dreams up in his head. Thats why it works. It’s the abrahamic means of suggestion. You actually supply whatever the meaning is, because there is no content to supply meaning in the statements.
So, let’s get down to it.
Libertarianism either means rule of law by reciprocity that insures us all against conflict, where conflict consists of imposition of costs upon the demonstrated interests of others (negatives), codified in tangible categories we call ‘property’ (positives), with MANDATORY contribution to the defense of rule of law from all enemies both external and internal that would seek to incrementally or radically impose violations of those interests, with the MARKET of competition for territory population and rule, determining the necessary mandatory contribution to the defense of that rule of law. Period.
Either that’s your definition, or you’re just making up fantasy stories like communism. In fact, that is what you’re doing, and what most libertarians are doing, they are promoting common property marxism, instead of private property marxism.
So no, “Lets Get Down To It” means libertarians are either demanding rule of law and contribution to the defense of it by reciprocal insurance of it, or they are just asking for communes with private instead of common property – which is exactly what the ‘inventors’ of left-propertarianism (leave me alone) indented you to think.
There is no such thing as “libertarianism”. There is just rule of law and the production of commons sufficient to preserve it. Sovereignty, liberty, and freedom cannot be produced by any other possible means.
Not Hoppe’s fantasy of recreating the German Free cities (by permission), or Rothbard’s dream of recreating the Pale of Settlement, or the Ghetto (by permission), or the dream of recreating the American frontier (by permission). There are no ‘borderlands’ left to settle on behalf of a state in exchange for defense but the ‘liberty’ to preserve local custom (which is the meaning of liberty.)
So I’ll call out all libertarians as Useful Idiots of the enemy. Suckers. Ass Clowns. There is no such thing as Libertarianism any More than there is such a thing as it’s mirror image: communism.
You’re either a Propertarian or a fucking idiot. And there isn’t any debate to be had. It’s not even open to discussion, only education.
One has liberty by permission of a state. One has freedom by permission of an owner. One has sovereignty because a group of men are willing and able to deny other men of any practical scale, from imposing something other than rule of law by reciprocity upon them.
LIBERTARIANISM CAN’T EXIST. It’s another false dichotomy like Socialism vs Capitalism.
There is only rule of law and the property that results from it, and the commons necessary to defend it, or there is rule by man and all are subjects to those who rule, with the degree of liberty, freedom, or slavery imposed upon them against their will – for having FAILED to produce a condition of sovereignty.
For this reason I call Propertarianism SOVEREIGNTARIANISM and I almost changed the name to it. And maybe I should have. Liberty consist of permission for those who live in border areas to have defense of superior peoples in exchange for temporarily holding territory – meaning, buying an option on territory – until sufficiently developed to rule, or sufficiently useful to exchange with a competitor.
Libertarians are beggars like marxists. Sovereigntarians are OWNERS of their territory, polity, institutions, norms, traditions, and all commons under their domain.
Libertarianism then is sophistry. We either are sovereigntarians descriptively, propertarians operationally, or absolute fking idiots practicing yet another sophomoric secular religion produced by the enemy, just like marxism, socialism, feminism, postmodernism, denialism, and the three abrahamic religions – although, we gotta give christianity a pass having been so thoroughly germanicized into a folk religion.
We are warriors. Or we are slaves.
