Re: On wars

So, I am curious to SEE how you could PROVE .... I have no interest in proving anything to anyone else. Okay. The only purpose of, "proof," is to ensure my own reasoning is correct. If this is the ONLY purpose of 'proof', to 'you', then so be it. If your OWN, so called, "reasoning" is correct withi...

Re: On wars kip

You really have NOT had much experience outside of your own little 'world', have you? How many actual countries have to been to? Just showed this to my wife. Gave us a good laugh. Thanks! WHY? What is the little secret you and your wife are, supposedly, laughing at? I just asked you two VERY SIMPLE...

Re: On wars

Are you being intentionally obtuse or do you really not understand. I'm only talking about what Henry said. Did you MISS or did you FORGET the part where you said; " 'his' country", in relation to "henry quirk"? See, in case you are NOT YET AWARE, EVERY word here, is written in a 'philosophy forum'...

Re: "There has never been true communism."

Why do you want to, so call, "tussle" with that 'one', ONLY? Why not with 'me'? Because I'm annoying, but you are needy and annoying. What, EXACTLY, are you referring to when you use the word 'needy' here? Hopefully the irony here is NOT lost. Anyway, if by 'needy' you mean that I 'need' people to ...

Re: "There has never been true communism."

Well not really, it doesn't cover much of the whole getting things done aspect of having a nation and all that. You know, having ports and airports and roads, having schools and all that stuff. If you leave out all the actual things that need to get done either by a state, or under the umbrella of ...

Re: "There has never been true communism."

So, your minarchist night watchman state, that's also never been tested, right? as a natural rights libertarian minarchy is just folks bein' free, I think, as I say up-thread, every time you witness someone self-directin', bein' self-responsible, or see folks interactin' freely respectin' each othe...

Has there ever been a "true" version of that minarchism you are flogging? the natural rights libertarian minarchy I crave is simply an extension of what is fact: a man belongs to himself; a man has a right to his life, liberty, and property And, under your little 'world' EVERY one has the right to ...

Re: On wars

Since when have you become the overseer and judicature over ALL of what is a faulty, or a non faulty, definition of words? Look it up. Okay, done that. Still does NOT answer the clarifying question, which I posed, to you. Since when have 'you' become the ONE who KNOWS what a faulty or non faulty de...

Re: On wars kip

You’ll be safe because I will shield you. Shield me from what? The "enemy" is not interested in me, it's only interested in taking over the government. I don't like any government, the one that would oppress me now, if it could, or the one that takes over, if it can. I'm able to live as I choose un...

Re: On wars

Not far enough for the subject, but I was only addressing Henry's argument about defending against invasion of his country, which happens to be the United States. So, is that parcel of land generally known as the "united state", "henry quirks"? Are you being intentionally obtuse or do you really no...
