What 'vision'? Catchin', cookin', eatin' fish? In warmer times I do that regularly. Mebbe you mean 'mind your business and keep your hands to yourself'? That works too. In fact, the only time it doesn't work is when some nosey parker gets it into his or her head to interfere with another. As for defining shit: I have...just did, in fact.
"I am still aware that I'm part of a society. I am aware that contributing makes life better for everyone."
Yep, I agree...that's what a blend of competition and cooperation is all about. Where we differ is: I don't see cooperation as my trading off my autonomy...communitarians like yourself, do. Any one who strays off the reserve is targeted...for folks like you, community comes first, the individual comes second (if he or she is even deemed worthy of ranking).
"It's so-called 'right-wing' Govts. that offer the least freedom."
Is that so? Explain Cuba, explain Venezuela.
"you described yourself as 'right wing'."
Actually, that was a joke I thought you were bright enough to get.
I was wrong.
Explain what? We were talking about the 'right'. I've already pointed out that it's the societies that are a mixture of 'capitalism and socialism' that have the most 'freedom' and the best overall standards of living (countries that you would probably describe as 'left'--although I can only guess at that since you don't seem to want to define it). There's a good reason for this. It's because they aren't locked into any particular extremist ideology, and have democracy and continually evolving laws.
And I'm pretty sure you fish because you enjoy it, not because you have to in order to survive. There's a big difference. If the latter were the case you would be unlikely to have the luxury of tapping away on a computer for leisure. You might not even have any fish to 'fish' in your anarchic utopia. Some stronger jerkoff (a selfish 'I'm the only one who matters' POS) might have taken all the fish with no thought for others and the environmental consequences of over-fishing. Never mind that there are no fish left for the jerkoff either.
When people are only out for themselves society falls apart. That's what a 'society' is; humans living together in mutual consideration and cooperation. It makes life pleasant for everyone. I don't really know why you would have a problem with that. Which laws in particular do you object to, and how do they detrimentally affect you?
