At what point does hard libertarianism become anarchism

What do you mean by ‘hard libertarianism’? Minarchy?

Today marks 99 years since the beginning of the Armenian genocide and today we remember the 1.5m Armenians (out of the 2m population) who were murdered.

No one talks about the Armenian genocide. There are people in my country who don’t actually know of the Armenian genocide. It’s not taught here, and in my country it’s not recognised. In fact only twenty one countries actually recognise it. And of course, Turkey still denies that it happened.

Armenian or not, it’s important for all of us to acknowledge, understand and remember what happened. Unfortunately it cannot reverse it but if we remember we can stop atrocities like this from EVER happening again to any group of people, and to understand what the Armenian people have been through.They are a strong group of people who have been through so much and have a beautiful country with a unique and gorgeous culture. I’m not Armenian myself but I have the utmost respect for them, all of them.

<3

Edit: also it’s important for stopping the racism Armenians get today. Stats show that in Turkey, Armenians are the biggest target of hate speech, and I’m sure it’s similar in other countries. And of course there is the business with Azerbaijan - whatever you think about that, the racism goes way out of hand. If we remembered, maybe one day we could put a stop to that.

Late to the party, but on point

So tired of facile arguments from libertarians and other types of racists

You do realize that libertarians, almost to the man, espouse this very viewpoint?

Not the libertarians I’ve run into. They’re always crying censorship and first amendment when their comments are banned. Just bring up feminism around any online libertarians and you’ll see it. They were also out in droves during the whole ron paul 2012 spamfest.

Wrong fallacy, buster.

Haha, wow

I’m going to assume that’s a typo.

Honestly, I never thought I would say this, but you should google ‘non-aggression principle’

I literally don’t care about your opinion.

You cared enough to make a text post.

Could a higher capital gains tax be used to manage the hyperinflation libertarians are worried about while allowing the fed to keep interest rates low?

Why do we want interest rates low, again?

To spend, spend, spend!

To feed the ponzi scheme that is the capitalist system.

The irony here being that capitalists (e.g. Ron Paul) are the ones arguing against low interest rates.

Any girl or any guy, that feels threatened or intimidated by men’s rights activism, clearly, has no idea whatsoever what men’s rights activism is or what it stands for.

Racial quota in entertainment

nonwhitepeoplesaidwhat:

Major Anderson, a White man in the book “Ender’s Game”, is changed to a black woman in the movie.

image

Nobody is allowed to say anything, because “MUH RAYCISM”.

Sergeant Dap, from the same book, is changed from a White guy to a black guy.

image

But don’t you dare say anything, you racist White pigs!

Heimdall, an originally White character from the Marvel universe, based on a very White Norse god, is played by a black guy.

image

But that’s fine, because White people apparently have no culture, and Norse gods were probably always described as black guys, right?

Julius Caesar, one of the most important figures of the Ancient European world, a very White guy from Rome, is portrayed by a black man in this theatre production of Shakespeare’s play.

image

Doesn’t matter! As we all know, White people actually have no history, and they only spawned on this planet after non-whites had built their glorious civilizations, to spread oppression and White privilege! So technically, this isn’t misrepresenting history at all! Also, all important Whites in history were actually not White at all (tumblr logic)! I wonder what would happen if Mandela or King Jr. were played by a White guy somewhere. Because it goes both ways, right?

Meanwhile…

SJWs: “OMFG RACIST BASTERDZ!!! KATNISS IS OBVIOUSLY A WOMAN OF COLOUR!!!! WHITEWASHING!!!”

Um, yes, hello, sorry, but her skin is only described as “olive” in the book.

SJWs: “OLIVE MEANS NOT WHITE YOU RETARDED RACIST!!! SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PLAYED BY A COLOURED ACTRESS!!!!!!!!!”

Actually, olive skin looks like this:

image

and even if you extend it to shades like tan olive or dark olive, there are still many lighter shades (very pale and “White”, actually) to choose from

image

so the creators did nothing wrong. They’re not obligated to choose someone with a darker skin tone just to have enough non-white people in the movie and please the SJ crowd. “Olive” doesn’t in any way mean “PoC”, you’re just creating problems to complain about, because you actually have nothing to fight for.

SJWs: image

Whitewashing, my ass.

I’m fairly certain the race of Major Anderson and Dap was never specified, and Shakespearean characters are regularly casted by acting ability, not race. The same case can be made about Heimdall.

Why do people argue good points so poorly?

If you ever feel the need to use the term “douchebro” to describe men who are fighting against a gender-binary society that would crush them and tell them that they already have more than they deserve, get out of my face, get out of my life, get out of my universe.
