If you're a 'statist' then why do people campaigning for various forms of social justice annoy you? Who cares? Let them do them.

"Leave it to the individual states" has always seemed to me to be code for "let's ignore the problems of the underprivileged".

For a Sufjan fan you're being a bit of a dick

Let's not beat around the bush here. Although libertarians tend to support positive social legislation, as a political ideology it is farcical, peddling an economic standpoint that can best be described as reckless and dangerous. It is impossible to take seriously.

I'm fucking fine with libertarianism if it is SUCCESSFUL for once. look at Gilded age. Look at 1920s. it didn't end up so well, as you will see and the regulations ultimately saved the issues. whatever FDR did stabilized the financial market so much and saved US economy. that's why 50s was amazing time.

that's why I advocate democratic socialism like whatever Bernie or Scandinavian countries are implementing. 'cause it works more frequently than fucking "free market" nonsense.

It's a bit like anarchism in that respect. It might work in some perfect post-scarcity, post-political utopia (perfect communism in the true sense) where we can hand responsibility off to godlike AIs, but not in this world.

If you call that to "offer a view contrary" than I seriously pity anyone who has to deal with you on a somewhat regular basis.

Honestly, there are some highly insufferable people in this world who in my view just about deserve the 'SJW' label in its more derisive sense. But I don't see many on this forum. It's just not an accurate assessment.

There's maybe one or two that I can think of, but generally speaking that's not an issue around here... and certainly not any of those who he was debating with.

I just hope Bono is okay.

I'm not a SJW or a Libertarian, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn express last night, but my feeble moronic brain thinks Diemen's "threat" to ban you isn't based on you taking a differing viewpoint from his, but more along the lines of you insulting other folks along the lines of:

Take it down a notch, at least don't get banned until after the Gotham finale.

Try again.

As Hewson correctly pointed out, your views have nothing to do with it. Your inability to express them without throwing ridiculous insults around are the only reason for my warning.
