A good idea for a book
« on: June 27, 2009, 02:16:03 AM »
I just had a thought- What if someone made a book or a collected archive of all the arguments that statist woos tend to use against freedom and the free market with the appropriate rebuttals and related information (or links to said data)? It'd make arguing for our freedoms much more efficient, and a pretty good read for those interested in the subject if written properly.

Sounds good to me!!!  ;D
We could start with the arguments presented on this forum, and on Shane's videos.

Sounds like a good wiki project to me.

Agreed.
It reminds me of the iron chariots wiki from Atheist Experience.

Now the only question, is how do Virgil0211 and I get access to our own wiki?

I could probably set one up here. I've never set one up before, though.

Yeah, pretty much all of it's been refuted for something like a decade. Really, it's like the creationist sites.

What would be a good name for the Wiki?

my first thought was "guns of the patriots: arming you against the madness of statism", or something like that, but that may be copyrighted by Hideo Koijima. That was also the name of a massive nanomachine based network designed to manage soldiers engaged in combat.
