    We can all laugh at goofy libertardians, but these people take property and aggression seriously. Theoretically, there is nothing in their ideology that would prevent them from demanding capital punishment against those who initiate aggression on property.

    Of course, they don't. They instead meekly puss out and parrot diversity mantras. But still...

They were one of the first in DC to buy a purely T1-trunked phone system, we had a helluva time with AT&T getting that going. Quite a palace that place, swimming in cash. If that one window was all that got hit, they did well for themselves. Of course, the week is young. Cheers.

  11. This year has really been a one-two punch for blue America. COVID has hit blue America much harder, the riots have hit blue America much harder. (I realize the Cato institute is not blue America, but frankly they aren’t red America either.) It’s been a bad year for red America too but not quite as bad.

    Will blue America learn anything? Like, perhaps, that dense cities are only possible when you have a conscientious high IQ population, like in Europe of the past or Asia of the present?

    No, they will not learn anything. It’s basic psychology, people don’t like to admit they are wrong. When confronted with facts that oppose their preconceived notions they are more likely to double down or invent outlandish conspiracy theories to explain what is obvious to disinterested observers.

    Russians! White supremacists! Mexican cartels! The Seattle riots will probably be blamed on Bigfoot being driven mad by 5G tower radiation, while the Minnesota riots will be ascribed to global warming’s effects on the abominable snowman. These explanations make about as much sense as blaming this on the legacy of slavery…in Minnesota.

    People only change their beliefs when they absolutely have to. When they are bankrupt, for example. And the blue areas are not going to go bankrupt, because we are a democracy, and there are more of them than us, and they can just vote to transfer our stuff to them via legal means. And that is exactly what is going to happen when all the dust clears. You will pay directly for all of this via higher taxes, fewer benefits, higher insurance premiums, lower returns on your investments, fewer economic opportunities for your children, and higher cost of living.

    It will come directly out of your pocket via legal means. You and I will pay for all of this.

  12. See the problem with Libertarianism, is that it’s never really been tried.

  13. I once interrupted a brick-hurling black guy to explain how his real problem isn’t with a lobbyists’ office window but with the historically flimsy juridical doctrine of qualified immunity, and yadda yadda yadda, now he’s my son’s godfather.

    True libertarian story.

    Policies in these Democrat-run states have hurt minorities (lied to them) and perpetuated economic malaise for 40+ years. So, these white SJWS/Antifa anarchists will lead B & W followers to bring the focus on the privileged white neighborhoods in these liberal cities. Sooner or later, they're gonna focus on the Progressive overlord class who should be taxed at Bernie's 70% rate. And, at that point, Democrat-leaning people need to decide what they stand for.

    Without income taxes the federal government would revert back to relying mostly on tariffs for cash. Libertarians in general fantasize about life before income taxes, but it certainly wasn't a free trade life, ever. Perhaps abolishing the income tax would be an excellent way to both autarky and the destruction of the welfare state. In the short run the federal government would seriously jack up tariffs to keep programs afloat, most producers would move production to domestic facilities, and then correspondingly the tariffs would bring in less revenue over time, requiring the elimination of programs. One could dream.

    Racist Policies Need to Go

    …I was outraged at the t shirt worn by a Metropolitan Police Department officer that glorified the use of “jump out cars” and contained a common white supremacist symbol. Police and political leadership should actively identify and root out white supremacists from police departments throughout the country. At the same time, community leaders should examine policies that have disparate racial impacts in communities of color, even though those policies are facially color blind or race neutral….

  43. In fact Cato has a plan to avert the recurrence of this sort of thing. According to Cato, we need merely to invite everyone in the world to immigrate to the United States. When that process reaches its natural conclusion, that is, when wages and living conditions in the USA have adjusted to roughly the same levels as in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the amazing productivity of the much-swollen American economy will ensure that no one ever again takes an interest in rioting or looting. The catchy term for this programme is “picking up thousand-dollar bills lying on the sidewalk.”

    ironically there is nothing less libertarian than mass importing voters against the will of the citizens in the context of a democracy. Yet, that is a central plank of the philosophy of many lolberts.

    “Hey we just imported 100,000,000 people who think differently than you do who will now be voting against you and using public services at your expense. It’s the right thing to do if you believe in muh liberty. Also, unfortunately our new citizens have chosen to abolish the bill of rights.”

    The odious Ryan Bourne, cheerleader for flooding Chinese people from Hong Kong in to Britain, works for Cato. Loathsome libertarians.

    That tweet exemplifies why I loathe libertarians.

    Libertarians will never achieve their Holy Grail of zero government interference in people’s lives. But the way to get as close to it as possible is to have a homogeneous white country. More non-whites means more government.

    Please explain what this nice lady is talking about. What obelisks? Is she referring really to statues?

    I am finding it difficult, even now, to comprehend how a ‘responsible’ person could talk like this.

    We can all laugh at goofy libertardians, but these people take property and aggression seriously. Theoretically, there is nothing in their ideology that would prevent them from demanding capital punishment against those who initiate aggression on property.

    Of course, they don't. They instead meekly puss out and parrot diversity mantras. But still...

    I agree. But to be fair, the old right-wing libertarians, like the late Murray Rothbard, understood that you still need a cohesive society to protect your property rights

    Karma, indeed!
     
    Not so fast, Achmed. We're only seeing ONE window. Now the FRONT of the place, THAT'S windows. Being the fount of useless information I am, I should say, I installed the phone system in there in the Mid-Nineties when they moved into that palace. They were one of the first in DC to buy a purely T1-trunked phone system, we had a helluva time with AT&T getting that going. Quite a palace that place, swimming in cash. If that one window was all that got hit, they did well for themselves. Of course, the week is young. Cheers.

    Maybe. If you walk around the building, there are windows that could be broken. But what are you going to steal, a couple of PCs? Just for laughs? The Dindu warriors could have broken every window in the place. But there was nothing of value to steal, other than to break windows for the hard-on factor. Brookings, Jewish American Congress, Planned Parenthood and National Organization for women would have been tastier targets. All their staff was White Feminist Beckeys and Karens. CATO? Are you kidding me?
