Getting Butthurt in Debates Shouldn’t Prevent Libertarians From Working Together
Post Date: 2017-07-10 05:26:51 by Gatlin
Theres already plenty of articles about how libertarians shouldnt be as divided as we are and how the infighting will prevent us from making progress, but theres a specific item that I wanted to address in regards to this division between different factions of libertarians. It has been highlighted to me most recently by the current dispute between some Anarchyball editor, and Jared Howe, and recent debates between anarchists and minarchists. These debates always seem to be end in hurt feelings, or plain ad hominem attacks. Open borders supporters call closed border supporters fascists, while the latter calls the former communists. Anarchists claim that minarchists need ...
The Libertarian Heritage: The American Revolution and Classical Liberalism
Post Date: 2017-07-09 21:42:31 by Gatlin
.] Americans were not always pragmatic and nonideological. On the contrary, historians now realize that the American Revolution itself was not only ideological but also the result of devotion to the creed and the institutions of libertarianism. The American revolutionaries were steeped in the creed of libertarianism, an ideology which led them to resist with their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor the invasions of their rights and liberties committed by the imperial British government. Historians have long debated the precise causes of the American Revolution: Were they constitutional, economic, political, or ideological? We now realize that, being libertarians, the ...
Republicanism in the United States
Post Date: 2017-07-09 20:49:10 by Gatlin
Republicanism is the guiding political philosophy of the United States. It has been a major part of American civic thought since its founding.  It stresses liberty and unalienable individual rights as central values, making people sovereign as a whole, rejects monarchy, aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and vilifies corruption.  American republicanism was founded and first practiced by the Founding Fathers in the 18th century. For them, according to one team of historians, "republicanism represented more than a particular form of government. It was a way of life, a core ideology, an uncompromising ...

Delingpole: Record-Breaking Cold in Greenland; Alarmists ‘Look. An Arctic Squirrel!’
Post Date: 2017-07-09 07:42:35 by cranky
Greenland just broke the record for the coldest July day ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere at -33C. But as Tony Heller notes, whats even more interesting than the temperature record is the way the climate alarmists have tried to spin it. In fact they lie. Almost all Greenlands surface is gaining ice. In fact, says Heller, Greenland has gained a near record amount of ice this year, and the ice is melting very slowly. Its hard not to agree with his conclusion: Climate science is not a science. It is a criminal venture intended to extort money from the public. Whatever they are doing, has nothing to do with science.

Oral sex is producing dangerous gonorrhoea and a decline in condom use is helping it to spread, the World Health Organization has said.
