I like the Youtube personality Styxhexenhammer666. I really do. I think he is a highly intelligent right-libertarian commentator on current events in the United States. He is prolific too, somewhere around 5 videos a day. I encourage anyone to subscribe to his channel.
I actually think he may be one of the most intelligent and interesting Youtubers to watch and listen to today, especially because he keeps things succinct, unlike some other libertarians who really seem to be way too much in love with their own voice. And i find myself agreeing with Styx about 19 times out of 20.
He is a minarchist. And that is where we would disagree. But it doesn’t have to be a problem. There are more than enough issues to agree about before there would be any need to hash out any difference in insight about the role of the state.
It is when a minarchist feels the need to take a snipe at anarchocapitalism, that he makes it virtually unavoidable for me to respond to that, because he can influence gullible, state-worshiping fools to keep believing that a small government will be the solution to all of the state-related problems we are facing today. And so, could i let this snipe pass without response? No. Continue Reading
What do the following organizations have in common?
- Center for Individual Freedom;
- Citizens against Government Waste;
- Consumer Action for a Strong Economy;
- Digital Liberty;
- Free State Foundation;
- Frontiers of Freedom;
- Less Government;
- National Taxpayers Union;
- Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council;
- Taxpayers Protection Alliance;
There seems to be a common denominator or two here. You could argue they are that these organizations are:
- Pro Individual liberty;
- In favor of smaller government;
- The protection of the interests of tax payers’;
- In favor of the free market and a minimal involvement of government therein;
- Against government waste (i.e. Against unnecessary government spending)
So you’d be forgiven if you thought these organizations are actually in favor of government staying the hell away from the marketplace, are in favor of government spending as little tax payer money on non-essential services as possible, are in favor of less and not more government bureaucracy, are in favor of maximal individual freedom, and are most certainly against the nationalization of any industry or any part of industry.
You’d be forgiven.
But you’d also be WRONG. Continue Reading
James Gunn directed “Slither”, a movie about parasitic alien turds. The ideas you can get when you look in the mirror.
Roseanne Barr got fired for making “insensitive” tweets. Roseanne Barr being a supporter of Trump will have nothing to do with that, the MSM and fellow celebrities will say.
But then how to explain that the MSM and fellow celebrities come to the defense of Trump-bashing, Social Justice Warrior director James Gunn, when it is uncovered that he made a stream of so-called “jokes” about child molestation, among others? Surely it would have nothing to do with his being a leftist and a Trump-basher, would it?
Just in case you need a reminder of how various celebrities (including Patton Oswalt) felt about Roseanne Barr’s tweet, here you go:
Can we expect each and every one of these celebrities to now also jump down James Gunn’s throat for making vile, pro-pedophilia comments on Twitter? Judging by uber-hypocrite Patton Oswalt, probably not. Continue Reading
Marvel’s “The Black Panther” is a solid enough popcorn movie, although not nearly as great as some would have you believe. I personally would not rate it in the top 3 of Marvel Studio movies. It is, however, also a movie that promotes rampant statism and obedience to ‘leaders.’ It is no wonder that this character sided with Iron Man on the wrong side in “Captain America: Civil War.” Continue Reading
This is a typical example of someone who simply does not understand libertarianism, nor the point of the nonaggression principle. Continue Reading
Especially now, knowing that the likes of Youtube, Facebook and Twitter are ‘governed’ by self-appointed thought police stamping their boots all over those with politically undesirable opinions (which more and more tend to be all opinions to the right of Bernie Sanders), it becomes very important to have alternative avenues of spreading the message of liberty. At some point, the Spaghetti Monster willing, these corporate SJW juggernauts will be left in the dust by decentralized alternatives, or alternatives created by champions of free speech.
As if the entertainment industry is not already suffering from its abundance of eggheads and dullards, here is yet another example of what happens when already stupid (and narcissistic) people from that sector decide to go “full retard.”
You know why it’s “confusing,” Jennifer? Because you’re f**cking STUPID. That’s why. Too stupid to realize that your crap doesn’t smell and therefore that your political opinions are utterly irrelevant to 99,9% of the American population (the remaining 0,9% that thinks your political opinion has merit merely by virtue of you being a celebrity, is even more stupid than you are). You’re stupid to think that outside of the collectively maintained Social Justice Warrior bubble in your industry, people must agree with you, because everyone around you in your bubble does.
So now you think “mother nature” (a typically leftist anthropomorphism of nature or the climate) punished America for Trump?
You now went full retard, Jennifer. Never go full retard.
The common understanding about the result of the Brexit referendum is that the younger generation voted for the UK to remain part of the European Union. As to why this is likely to have been the case, look no further than what closely ties the younger generation to an institution where pro-EU sentiment dominated: public education.
In the blog I posted yesterday, called “Leave virtue signaling to the left” I specifically mentioned, among others, Reason as an example of an organization that “(tries) to play footsie with mainstream progressive sentiment in order to come across as “reasonable.”
Well whatta you know? Turns out that they’ve released a video on ReasonTV, narrated by sleep inducing bore Zach Weissmueller, that manages to give me a perfect example of this. Thanks to Lauren Southern for sifting through the unholy virtue signaling mess so i don’t have to.
