"It is, they say, not Russia that plans aggression but, on the contrary, the decaying capitalist democracies. Russia wants merely to defend its own independence. This is an old and well-tried method of justifying aggression. Louis XIV and Napoleon I, Wilhelm II and Hitler were the most peace-loving of all men. When they invaded foreign countries, they did so only in just self-defence. Russia was as much menaced by Estonia or Latvia as Germany was by Luxemburg or Denmark." --Ludwig von Mises, Epilogue

Man, does that sound like our foreign policy today or what?
Damn.
Moral of the story, Interventionism (whether economic or military) is bullshit.

"The state is an evolutionary relic. Statistically private defense contracting has been more successful than the US military. It should follow that the same would be true for security contracting. It doesn't matter who our 'enemy' is. The choice is between a huge conglomeration of the worlds most useless people or a decentralized profit based form of economics in military industrial matters. So this is my proposal in answer to the militia issue. It's not a political issue. It's pure business." --GrandArchitect3D, "Liberals are cunts" by InTheEndIWasRight

"Do not bother responding to gklr he is a troll he is only here to get channel views and waste your time. If you really want to run around in circles trying to debate him you can but you will never get anywhere, he will never recognize the validity of any of your arguments and he will intentionally make dumb arguments to get a rise out of you. He will also respond by taking your points out of context.

If the 'fuck you' video he has on his channel does not give him away his comment history will"--Valmarith (another person gklr is fucking around with...)

"I'm not so much anti-religion as I am pro-freedom so if religion were pro-freedom, I wouldn't have a problem with it.  But then again, if religion were pro-freedom, it wouldn't exist."  Pat Condell

I've noted you can say the same about the state.  But then again, it's amazing how frequently the church and the state can be interchanged.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

Well, as ConfederalSocialist has explained in his videos called, "Mommy Government" the state is an outgrowth of religion (or something like that).

I can see this becoming a problem if it's not already. While it's true dictionaries can be terrible in containing accurate scientific definitions for colloquial words (like AronRa pointed out with "animal" and "monkey"), for political terms they sometimes are in agreement with common usage and sometimes not. If dictionaries are only a conveyance of popular usage (they don't "define" the words as much as just render on pages what speakers of the language agree to), won't this create problems in arguments like the ones you guys have had with others? (If you thought ad hominem recursus was bad already...)

It's especially bad for more complex philosophical positions like "Atheism" and "Anarchy".
Check out the featured video on my youtube page by Ffreethinker to see what I mean...
Simply put, the dictionaries are full of shit with their definitions of Atheism, some even going as far as equating it to Hedonism (wtf?).
