@WeeklyHellscape@twitter.com Freedom and responsibility are two sides of the same coin. Destroy a person's ability to be responsible and he becomes incapable of being free. Destroy the idea of responsibility and the idea of freedom becomes unthinkable.

OK, I've had it. Too many of you are incapable of having a polite and rational discussion about ab*rtion. I am therefore going to mute every conversation that has that word in it.

@WeeklyHellscape@twitter.com @lesnshawn1@twitter.com @jmb063@twitter.com Disease is "natural". Treatment of disease is "artificial". When someone damns the artificial or exalts the natural merely for being one or the other, look for a fool or a grifter. Odds are you'll find one, either that someone or the person he learned his cant from.

And this is why libertarianism is a non-starter in this country.

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."--Thomas Jefferson

They were scared. They decided to call it off. And then they did it anyway.

Today we would say they are children, who should not make their own choices.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C.S. Lewis

More signs of our increasingly authoritarian government.

It's not just higher education, it's the government and all its parasites--including higher education--that are transferring wealth.

A couple of politicians arguing online. Me: "Children!" One replies, "I did apologize." The tweet I did not send:

I don't care. Any fool can apologize. It takes character to not be a jerk in the first place. A mere apology will not create character where there was none.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
