Dammit, if you use the real definition it is very clear I am a libertarian. I consider myself to be so - I genuinely want to provide the individual with the opportunity to make choice.
Dude, what the fuck?
Can this really be the same person who, in his comments policy, says:
For a comment to be published I must be satisfied that:
6. It is not questioning the fundamental tenets on which this blog is based.
This last point is important. Those who wish to argue that tax havens / secrecy jurisdictions are good things may do so, but not here. Likewise those promoting neoliberal economics may do so, but not here: propagating the delusion that an economy can be accurately modeled using counterfactual propositions about its nature is not something I wish to partake in, and will not allow.
Seriously? In other words, you're a libertarian that won't hear a word from the Austrian school or anything other than your own?
But just as the far right in Germany claimed the word socialist as their own - wholly inappropriately - so have the right claimed libertarian as their own - wholly inappropriately because the programme they promote is clearly intended to deny choice to mist by providing privilege to a few
In the process they claim to have no desire for social engineering - when that is their very obvious aim
And most who seem to be libertarian also seem incredibly keen on restricting immigration - whilst promoting the free flow of capital
Wrong, you fucking bell end. Free movement of people and free movement of capital are a fundamental policy for any libertarian. You, on the other hand, are quite happy to restrict the free movement of capital while calling for the free movement of people.
This does not make you a libertarian. Along with your comments policy, this makes you a fascist cunt.
