Things like preventing dangerous substance use, or making sure kids get an education are perfectly fine. But your desire to see these things does not give you--or the state--the right to practice violence against people, even if that violence comes from the police against a man using drugs, or from the IRS in taking income to provide schools.

You called yourself libertarian. What principles define you as such?

Go back to the Wild West? That’s not even a clear argument, but instead tries to conjure up scary images from violent movies.

It should be legal to own a meth lab, because the act of owning one doesn't initiate violence against anyone or infringe on their property. Basically, it’s moral to do anything that doesn't do these things, and owning a meth lab qualifies. If I’m living my life without harming a soul, what right do you have to bring violence against me? If you use violent force against me when I’m not harming anyone, you're now the aggressor—the bad guy, and violent self-defense then becomes justified to protect myself and my property from you. Just as owning a meth lab doesn't violate self-ownership or non-aggression, buying or using meth doesn't either. I don’t encourage anyone to do anything so dangerous, but there are many dangerous things I don’t advocate that shouldn't be illegal. It’s immature and authoritative to believe that your aversion to something gives you the right to forbid it of others.

It’s tricky to start talking about “rights”, because we really have one right that covers all the others, and it’s the right to not to receive violence from others.

With education, just as with the drug example, I agree with your goal (that kids should be educated). I also would never use drugs. But what we personally like or dislike can’t rationally be a basis to inflict violence upon people. It’s not a moral principle. It’s not a universal that applies everywhere all the time, no matter the situation. Things that universal are preferences.

Then what defines you as a libertarian? What principles do you have that make you call yourself one?

Society can't be regulated, or rather it shouldn't be. Society isn't a thing to be controlled, but instead it means the current state of our culture, beliefs, and traditions. It will always exist as long as there are humans.

Yet again, I'll say that I know what the law says, but I'm saying that the vast majority of laws on the books are immoral. I understand that it's illegal to have a meth lab in your home, but it shouldn't be. In principle, I can't find anything wrong with it. If a person were to have a meth lab in their home, in a way that nobody else is affected by it or put in danger by it, then I couldn't defend using violence against them for it.

You mentioned that we're not living in the jungle. Libertarians are sometimes accused of being primitive and simple. But I think it's primitive, uncivilized, and brutish to use--or support--the use of violence, except in self-defense. And government, by its very nature, does this in all things.

"Society can't be regulated, or rather it shouldn't be"

No, I'm sorry, that's just incredibly stupid.

What you're talking about, against the government interfering and regulating, sounds like you want to go back to the Wild West.

And no, it shouldn't be fucking legal to own a meth lab. You could start stretching that freedom to allow people to buy and use the meth you created. After all, it is their desire to do so, you're not forcing them to do it, so why the hell not? And just like that, in an instant, you found a basis to legalize meth trading. GG, such logic, so modern.

Society MUST be regulated, because we, as humans, are innate primitive. Most humans will start abusing their freedoms and their "god-given" rights.

For instance, there is a fucking good god-damn reason why the state OBLIGES you to sent your child to school, to be educated. Otherwise, all the fucking idiots who think they don't need anything more than a farm and a gun to protect it will start spawning more illiterate idiots, thinking that they're freedom to do so is so high & mighty. Yeah, that sure sounds pretty fucking constructive.

FFS, in the fucking US of A there are still quite a few states in which INBREEDING is legal, because it's not forbidden. Yeah, that sure sounds pretty smart.

What you're saying sounds like you don't have any idea or clue about general human history. Since the modern man appeared, society has developed by making a compromise between freedom & regulating said freedoms, tweaking the balance more and more as societies had individuals able to elaborate such thoughts. Simply put, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

User avatar #1088 - tkfourtwoone (03/01/2014) [-]
I'm also a libertarian, but I also believe that for a functioning society, some things need to be well regulated. Because, as history has shown us countless times, there will always be people who will ABUSE their rights and freedoms, because they chose to respect the letter of the law, and not the spirit of the law (don't know exactly what's the English terms for that).

If I were to agree with you, that would mean that you should be allowed to have a cocaine or meth lab inside your house, for your own use (so other parties are not involved). Guess what? You can't.

You are NOT as free as you think you are. And that is perfectly normal, because we don't live in the fucking jungle.

Reverting a bit to differences between your home and your business: no body will give you a fine for having a dirty room or a dirty kitchen in your home. If you have a diner of some sort, you WILL receive a fine for not respecting sanitary regulations.
Likewise, no body will force you to have a bathroom in your own house.
If you own a place where people can eat & drink in, you are required by the law to have a sanitary facility

Therefore, self-ownership has its limits, limits defined by laws. Most laws exist to defend people from "exaggerated freedoms". Once again, think of the 50s period - AFAIK there wasn't any law to FORBID you to discriminate black people. Now there is. Society has improved, no body in their right mind can deny that.

I know what the law may say, but that's not what I'm discussing. Statutory laws is changing all the time. I'm talking about natural law.

I own two structures. Who is anyone else to say what I can and can't do with my property? In principle, it makes no difference what I choose to do with or in either of those buildings, unless of course I'm violating someone else's person or property. What does it matter what I call these buildings, whether I decide to sleep in one I call my "business" or to sell some of my property within one building I deem my "house". There is no difference. Property is property.

Businesses aren't open to everyone like you claim. Most won't even let you in without a shirt and shoes on. If I want to have a sign welcoming in only people with red hair, or only left-handed people, or only black people, or only white people, or only pregnant women, or whatever, that's between me and the people who come into my building/business--if any do.

Residential space, commercial space, it's all property. If it's not yours, you don't get a say. And the same with me when it comes to your property. Plus if business owners do things that are as bad as you believe, they probably won't be in business too long anyway. These kind of things take care of themselves. In the real world, businesses want customers. They're not gonna purposely do things to deprive themselves of income.
User avatar #1084 - tkfourtwoone (03/01/2014) [-]
"Residential space, commercial space, it's all property"

Yes it is - but as I said, they are subjected to a different set of laws. In your home, you are not legally obliged to build a ramp for people in wheelchairs - In your store, however, you are. That, along with a whole set of rules & regulations, starting with the simple fact that you need a permit of somesort from the state institutions to be allowed to run that shop in the first place.
Not exactly sure when it comes to owning houses, but I'm pretty sure you don't need the state's approval to buy one. To build one, maybe, because you have to evidently follow building & safety laws.

"Most won't even let you in without a shirt and shoes on" - except during the summertime, if you're near a beach, etc. Otherwise, it falls under the "indecent exposure" laws, so you're still not really the one telling people what they may or may not wear in your shop.

So, in effect, businesses ARE open to everyone. You may include a formal dress code, which is something else entirely - because then ALL the people who enter your business "house" need to wear the proper dressing. If you're including a "must have tuxedo" policy, then you're not exactly entitled to refuse service to someone because they wear a yellow, brown, red, etc. tuxedo. They're following your rules, so you can't kick them out because you feel like it.

And yes, talking about "these kind of things take care of themselves" - remember the 50s. When most of America was a racist douchebaggery of a country, because you had the "freedom" to be a racist douchebag idiot.

Once again, think of the 50s period - AFAIK there wasn't any law to FORBID you to discriminate black people. Now there is. Society has improved, no body in their right mind can deny that.
User avatar #1089 - douthit (03/02/2014) [-]
Then what defines you as a libertarian? What principles do you have that make you call yourself one?

Society can't be regulated, or rather it shouldn't be. Society isn't a thing to be controlled, but instead it means the current state of our culture, beliefs, and traditions. It will always exist as long as there are humans.

Yet again, I'll say that I know what the law says, but I'm saying that the vast majority of laws on the books are immoral. I understand that it's illegal to have a meth lab in your home, but it shouldn't be. In principle, I can't find anything wrong with it. If a person were to have a meth lab in their home, in a way that nobody else is affected by it or put in danger by it, then I couldn't defend using violence against them for it.

You mentioned that we're not living in the jungle. Libertarians are sometimes accused of being primitive and simple. But I think it's primitive, uncivilized, and brutish to use--or support--the use of violence, except in self-defense. And government, by its very nature, does this in all things.
User avatar #1090 - tkfourtwoone (03/02/2014) [-]
"Society can't be regulated, or rather it shouldn't be"

No, I'm sorry, that's just incredibly stupid.

What you're talking about, against the government interfering and regulating, sounds like you want to go back to the Wild West.

And no, it shouldn't be fucking legal to own a meth lab. You could start stretching that freedom to allow people to buy and use the meth you created. After all, it is their desire to do so, you're not forcing them to do it, so why the hell not? And just like that, in an instant, you found a basis to legalize meth trading. GG, such logic, so modern.

Society MUST be regulated, because we, as humans, are innate primitive. Most humans will start abusing their freedoms and their "god-given" rights.

For instance, there is a fucking good god-damn reason why the state OBLIGES you to sent your child to school, to be educated. Otherwise, all the fucking idiots who think they don't need anything more than a farm and a gun to protect it will start spawning more illiterate idiots, thinking that they're freedom to do so is so high & mighty. Yeah, that sure sounds pretty fucking constructive.

FFS, in the fucking US of A there are still quite a few states in which INBREEDING is legal, because it's not forbidden. Yeah, that sure sounds pretty smart.

What you're saying sounds like you don't have any idea or clue about general human history. Since the modern man appeared, society has developed by making a compromise between freedom & regulating said freedoms, tweaking the balance more and more as societies had individuals able to elaborate such thoughts. Simply put, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

Things like preventing dangerous substance use, or making sure kids get an education are perfectly fine. But your desire to see these things does not give you--or the state--the right to practice violence against people, even if that violence comes from the police against a man using drugs, or from the IRS in taking income to provide schools.
User avatar #1091 - douthit (03/02/2014) [-]
You called yourself libertarian. What principles define you as such?

Go back to the Wild West? That’s not even a clear argument, but instead tries to conjure up scary images from violent movies.

It should be legal to own a meth lab, because the act of owning one doesn't initiate violence against anyone or infringe on their property. Basically, it’s moral to do anything that doesn't do these things, and owning a meth lab qualifies. If I’m living my life without harming a soul, what right do you have to bring violence against me? If you use violent force against me when I’m not harming anyone, you're now the aggressor—the bad guy, and violent self-defense then becomes justified to protect myself and my property from you. Just as owning a meth lab doesn't violate self-ownership or non-aggression, buying or using meth doesn't either. I don’t encourage anyone to do anything so dangerous, but there are many dangerous things I don’t advocate that shouldn't be illegal. It’s immature and authoritative to believe that your aversion to something gives you the right to forbid it of others.

It’s tricky to start talking about “rights”, because we really have one right that covers all the others, and it’s the right to not to receive violence from others.

With education, just as with the drug example, I agree with your goal (that kids should be educated). I also would never use drugs. But what we personally like or dislike can’t rationally be a basis to inflict violence upon people. It’s not a moral principle. It’s not a universal that applies everywhere all the time, no matter the situation. Things that universal are preferences.

I was talking about how the "badass" of the prequels, who managed to kill a Jedi Master and almost kill a powerful Padawan... just switches his brain to "Off" and stands there and looks at Obi-Wan how he propels himself in the air, over him, RIGHT IN BLADE REACH, gets behind him so he just spins after him.

Yes, because the main antagonist of the film suddenly has a brain fart. And then you decide to make a reference to that move in the 3rd film, in which allegedly "Obi-Wan learned from Maul's mistake", since Vader tries to do the same thing Obi-Wan did.

It's pathetic, really. Would have been MUCH better if (as I initially thought it would happen when I was a kid and saw Ep.I for the first time in cinema) Obi-Wan managed to activate the blade while it was still flying from Qui-Gon's body and impale Maul from behind.
Now THAT would have taken in by surprise and would have been very legit.

If you ever get a chance to take the cock out of your mouth and read a book you should read up on constitutional law and what businesses are and are not legally required to do. I mean, that's assuming you can stop being a raging homo for even a minute, which I highly doubt.

And "if you ever get a chance to take the cock out of your mouth and read a book you should read up on constitutional law and what businesses are and are not legally required to do", you would realize that you are OBLIGED to serve patrons, unless they are disturbing the place. Simple as that.

Meanwhile, I also suggest you look up basic notions of LIMITATIONS of rights. You are NOT entitled to kick whoever you want out of your joint, because from that moment YOU are breaking THEIR rights to benefit from your services, causing a prejudice.

At first I didn't know why mentioned "cheap rents". Then I remembered how your real estate market goes.

Sorry to disappoint you, son, but only students from other towns that come to Bucharest for college stay in rents. Well, mostly students.

Most of the people living in their natal-towns OWN the house they live in. Yeah, I know, it's a difficult concept to grasp, but I am pushing my patience limits right now

And speaking of "attractive tourism", most West-European tourists take great joy strolling through the Historical Center of our capital, one of the reasons being the very cheap (a bit over 1 Euro) but very good beer (which is a lot more than I can say about the horse-piss American beers).

I'm military. We don't stay in one place. Owning a house is retarded, and generally reserved for people with families so they can pay it off with their BAH and sell it when they're done.

Renting is, otherwise, reserved for poor people. I assumed that everyone over in Romania lived in closets with dirt floors, especially these 'gyspies' you mentioned. Don't got those here, but read about them in books and from what I hear they're generally hated by just about everyone. Nobody cries about how hitler killed all the gypsies, for instance. Only the jews get special treatment there.

Property over here is generally large and cheap. Is the houses we built that cost a lot, cause they're ******* good houses and worth every penny. An average wage-earners house over here is considered a mansion over in most other countries.

". Is the houses we built that cost a lot, cause they're ******* good houses and worth every penny."

Serious doubt. I've seen a bit of TV programs that show how houses are built in America, one of the reasons they're so quick to build them is due to light materials.

Brick houses are fine in tornadoes. You're probably talking about trailer parks... which is just a cheap way to own property cause the houses are built so insanely cheaply. I could go out a buy a plot of land and a trailer for less than 25 grand right now if I really wanted to live in a ********* .

Generally speaking though, its the hurricanes that do by far the most damage over hear, not tornadoes. Even considering that most people in those areas have insurance against such damage, and end up profiting from the destruction of their homes.

Well... about Dracula. Yes, it's one of our main "brands", even though Bram Stoker's book is pure fiction, bar some historical details.

Please, for your cultural sake, read this:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_the_Impaler

It gives you a better understanding from where the name "Dracula" originated. However, the "vampire" part of the story is entirely Stoker's doing; we DO have some balcan/slavic folklore mythology called "strigoi", but it's not really the same thing.

yar, yar, what's his nuts the impailer. As much as popular belief on the internet would lead you to believe we actually have a pretty thorough world history teaching regimine in most of our schools, and we did a pretty extensive history over Romania and it's quirks. It's only just now slowly coming back to me cause it's been so damn long, rofl.

"And also that one guy who was stabbed, poisoned, shot, and drowned by his wife and somehow still survived. I think he was a king or something. "

I really believe you're thinking of Rasputin, who was a Russian. And he wasn't killed by his wife (didn't had any), but by Russian nobles that wanted him gone.
User avatar #61 to #57 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Yup. That's the guy. Did an entire week on him alone, and not just the weird stuff that surrounded him. Compared to places like turkey and hungary we actually covered a ********* of stuff over Romania, as it turns out. Watched a couple documentaries over Vlad the impaler too.

Well... I guess our military campaigns against the Turks/Ottomans ARE a subject of historical interest... even though they haven't been very successful, considering we were vastly outnumbered, I'd say we did pretty well in conserving our independence.

Wait.... **** Rasputin happened only a hundred years ago! That was ******* recent!
User avatar #58 to #53 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Rasputin! That was the guy. You people had one hell of a violent history... but then again everyone did back then didnt' they?
User avatar #55 to #53 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
I think our history classes were more focused upon the weird stuff that happened within your government and the various risings of power.

And also that one guy who was stabbed, poisoned, shot, and drowned by his wife and somehow still survived. I think he was a king or something.

Ooo... and crafts fairs. Neat.

You might want to search the Top Gear episode when they went to our Transfagarasan
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transf%C4%83g%C4%83r%C4%83%C8%99an

Really impressive scenery, in many parts of the country, I'll give you that (check pic in the left)

And yes, I remember that road vividly. Good episode.

Top Gear is like in the top five list of things that England has done good by the world, rofl.

Seems like a surprisingly safe country for tourism. Cheap too, so you can spend a month or so there and not break the budget. Only problem is that there doesn't appear to be anything at all to do once you're there but look at castles and mountains.

The capital is literally full of places to see. I'm not talking about bars & clubs, but many historical buildings, starting from the Parliament (that big ass building from the picture above) to many interbellic houses.

Also, 1 month to visit the entire country? Lol, no way.
User avatar #50 to #45 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Research done. Your country just bumped my trip to Africa and Austrailia down a notch, but stays behind going to Paris. (never going to south america ******* ever. Did a fun little jaunt to honduras once rousting out drug-lords and training with the local military... but even when you're all carrying rifles you gotta be careful where you go, rofl).

You're probably the best place to visit within a thousand miles of your area.

From where the hell do you get the idea that Romanians are black?!

OK, the gipsies are dark-skinned, since they originate from India, but slavic/balkans people are caucasian as **** . Pic related!
User avatar #60 to #56 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Ah, so no blacks in Romania? Gud. Guuuud. *cackles like dracula*

Rofl. So you probably hate Indian's more than I do. I'm just faintly annoyed by the way they smell like curry and worship cows.

Well, there's Greece, Turkey, Italy, Germany, Austria... although the latter 2 are rather expensive.
User avatar #54 to #52 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Meh, might just end up seeing it all as a big road-trip through Asia. Spend a couple days in a city and move on.

Apparently you guys have a bit of a problem with human trafficing though... so glad I'm not a woman or child.

Just curious though, but are you black? I get the feeling you are.
User avatar #47 to #45 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
For some reason I was thinking of Romania as being one of those ******* ukranian drug-routes into russia. I totally forgot that it's actually pretty ******* awesome.
User avatar #42 to #38 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Rofl, yup. House was sturdy as **** . Then again, the soil there was very good for making strong foundations. Some places I guess that isn't always the case, and the houses shift and float down-river or become lop-sided.
User avatar #35 to #33 - PgFalcon (07/28/2013) [-]
Our building codes are, generally, among the toughest in the world. New buildings built today are as sturdy as anything you've ever seen.

That is not to say, of course, that this has always been the case. Over half of our homes are several decades old, and not all of them are built very well.
