: : This complete La-La no authority anywhere feels threatened, you still vote don't you?

: No. I haven't voted since I woke up from the Long Slumber of
: The Unconscious. Why would I want to sanction someone else's power
: over my life? Not a very free will enhancing move, is it.

Which just goes to show bad governments are elected by good citizens who don't vote.

: :Even if it is the "Libertarian" party (not very libertarian if your a worker) and a lot of the people who surf the net live a strange double life of extreme views that they wouldnt voice elsewhere.

: Not true. I've talked up free will for most of my life.

OK, fine you must be the exception.

: And no, I'm not a member of any non-profit organization such
: as the Libertarian Party/Movement.

Non-profit, I scoff, this is the corporate big money interests nexus we're talking about, they don't have me fooled anyway.

: ". . . even people who claim to be libertarian will
: utter gibberish to the effect that ' the only way
: to win liberty is through governing. ' The only liberty
: to be won through governing is the liberty to share
: in the plunder." -- Vic Milan

Am I supposed to be impressed by this Milan fool? Is this the Great Man theory of history showing it's ugly face, I assess arguments in a truly libertarian fashion by disregarding the author altogether, anyway that's arguments I assess not rethoric and ASSumptions.
