This entire video is made of win, from start to finish.


A sample: "Marxism and socialism is based on the religion of central planning in the economy; just like theism is based on the belief of central planning in the universe.  Capitalism is the atheism of an economy."--The last words of the video.
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"

"Those individuals who committed this heinous act of violence did not stop off first and ask American Muslims for permission before flying these planes into buildings. Neither did they consider the consequences of how this act would hurt American Muslims in our society. On the contrary, one of the most shameful things I have found about the political manipulation of September 11 is the refusal to even mention the Muslims who were murdered that day as well." --Mike Beitler, Libertarian candidate for US Senate (NC)

*Applause* Very well put.

What the hell?!
What is it with all these people recording videos while sitting in a car, driving around?
This one even holds a fucking mike!
Is this some sort of "Jerkass - Youtube Edition"?
Don't they know they endanger lives with this kind of behavior. Not just everyone else's but their own as well, mainly because I tend to shoot everyone I see doing that on sight.

"See, I think Objectivists miss the point by trying to make it a system of ethics. The point of libertarianism is ONLY about what level of force is permissible in society."--Shanedk, comment to an Objectivist on his Free Market video

That's one of my bigger issues with Stefan Molyneux (he's a post Objectivist from what I can tell).
He takes it too far in the opposite direction of guys like Fringeelements (who's a moral nihilist).
I mean, don't get me wrong, moral arguments are good, and economic arguments are good, as are logical arguments.
I personally think a balance is needed.
I wasn't pushed out of full blown statism into anti-statism by any one (or two) of these alone.
And I would bet that I'm not the only one either.

I don't see why people treat them as exclusive.  They're all tied together by logic and evidence.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

You noticed that too, huh?
Glad I'm not the only one. :)

Heh, not a bad analogy for something I made up on the spot at 6 AM

Quote
Wraithkun 6:14 am
(6:14:07 AM):     I'm still not sure why I can't sue the gov't for breach of contract.
Lord T Hawkeye 6:14 am
(6:14:21 AM):     for the same reason you can't kill Shabranigdo with the dragon slave

Explanation: Shabranigdo is a demon lord from the anime Slayers.  Dragon slave is a powerful spell that draws it's power from the negative forces of the world, a power Shabranigdo has complete control over.  So like Lina Inverse herself explains "It's like coming up to someone and saying 'hey, could you help me kill you?'"

"Libertarian Socialism is the single biggest oxymoron in political science."--RaymondDundas

Well, with the possible exception of "State Capitalism".

I would bet that every word of it applies to 9/11 truthers as well.
So when JBC plays internet tough guy insisting I make videos about the stuff he believes that I think is bullshit, while I didn't respond, I suppose another good response would have been to just say what ThetaOmega did at the end of this video.

I see someone's channeling Yahtzee there.
Needs a bit work in the animations and some voice excersise but he should be on a good way, barring the usual pitfalls.
