Re: Vs. Libertarian Socialist Rants thread

To answer zzzzzzz (time restraints and lack of keyboard necessitate simplicity)

Libertarian definition- individual rights outweigh the group.

Socialist definition- the group's rights outweigh the right of the individual

Re: My Actual Libertarian Experience

Ideology isn't what I'd consider my political leanings: more of a semi strict adherence to individual liberty.
Live and let live, and let morality be your guide. I'll make an effort to join this discussion, my insane workload permitting.

Re: Cat policy

Requiring cats to remain indoors is problematic, I regularly walked ours, but it seemed to make him redouble his efforts to escape and roam free.
Of course he is a true rescue (found in a parking lot at about 5 weeks old), so that may play into his proclivity for nature.
Spay and neuter seems best.

Re: Vs. Libertarian Socialist Rants thread

I was going to read this debate, but Libertarian socialist don't exist. It's like a Jewish nazi. Sure, people can claim to be one, but the one thing us Libertarians and Socialist can agree on is our ideologies are not compatible.

Re: My Actual Libertarian Experience

I'll have to read this debate from the start, but at least people are talking about Libertarianism.

From a consequential point of view considering the world we live in today, I favor abortion and I don't believe that anti-abortion laws serve any purpose. I also have no problem, in today's world, with the killing of newborn infants if all involved parties are in agreement. Interesting. I don't nec...

Re: Are you surprised/disappointed by the slow spread of veganism?

Good point. ( Nice to see you, TVA, btw. :) ) I think the recent reduction of militant Vegans (at least in terms of media representation) has really helped Veganism to be seen as more mainstream. Besides the ethical considerations, there have been published studies showing a Vegan diet is the most e...

If you are going to eat an oyster, you may as well eat meat.
Hello fredericlavender,
