So long as someone abjures non-defensive violence, theft, and fraud, he's libertarian enough for me. When the statists have destroyed themselves, we who survive can set up our separate utopias and see which--if any--work, knowing that our libertarian neighbors won't try conquest.

Here's how I read this artlcle: Mastodon users won't kowtow to my progressive agenda; instead they keep talking about what *they* want to talk about. Therefore Mastodon is dying.

Apropos of my last tweet: *Always* check original sources before forwarding news, to avoid propagating falsehoods. *No* news source reliably gets the facts straight, whether from accident or from deliberate distortion.

According to prisoner interviews, only 10% of those who possessed a gun during their crime got the gun from a retail source. (The Breitbart article that led me to the DOJ report said 2%; they misread the report.) bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/sufics

When we say "no man is above the law" it is a lie. If any one of my clients did what POTUS is doing right now - I mean the tweets about a witness in a federal case, the allegations themselves - there would be an arrest warrant and a marshall serving it.

This exceeds the minimum daily requirement for irony.

The mugger's death at the hands of his would-be victim is entirely proper. The quoted person is even more evil than the mugger, for he would condemn every person to be a defenseless victim.

Conservatives are thrilled a woman with a concealed-carry permit shot and killed a 19-year-old would-be mugger.

That's not how justice works. The penalty for theft is not death, nor do we want it to be.

@MaggieBackup As much as I agree with the sentiment, I expect that protests that significantly hurt the government will start the death spiral that leads to outright dictatorship. Then again, the sooner we get to that state, the sooner it can die and people regain the possibility of freedom.

I don't crusade for gay rights, women's rights, minority rights, drug users' rights, etc. I'm an advocate for human rights, of which those are a natural subset. Human rights include all consensual behavior between adults, not just the ones that are currently making news.

If we are to be ruled by emergency decree, we might as well throw in the towel. We will be living in a dictatorship and it won't be long before America becomes a failed state.

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.

Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!

This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.

Enjoy!
