Actually I know more about libertarianism than you do.
2.5| All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors.
Translation: no tax money, so no money to run the courts or law enforcement system.
3.5| Libertarians embrace the concept that all people are born with certain inherent rights. We reject the idea that a natural right can ever impose an obligation upon others to fulfill that “right.” We condemn bigotry as irrational and repugnant. Government should neither deny nor abridge any individual’s human right based upon sex, wealth, ethnicity, creed, age, national origin, personal habits, political preference or sexual orientation. Parents, or other guardians, have the right to raise their children according to their own standards and beliefs. This statement shall not be construed to condone child abuse or neglect.
Translation: if you refuse to hire black people, women, Jews, Mexicans, etc., libertarian philosophy says that’s your right and the Government should not interfere.
Paul’s stance is “very reasonable, and quite close to the Libertarian position,” a spokesman for the Libertarian Party told TPMmuckraker.
Here’s a suggestion for you - perhaps this is where you should bow out of this argument and hurl a few childish insults to cover for your logical inadequacies.
You don’t have a counter argument. I have the cited facts and you pretty much have… well… nothing.
Embarrassing, yes, but that’s what happens when you accuse me of not knowing what I’m talking about.
You realize that there’s more to libertarianism than the libertarian party, right? In fact, it seems to me like the majority of studied libertarians actually resent the LP.
Your assertion that there would be no justice system is ignoring the large number of minarchist libertarians as well. But since I’m not one of them, I’m not going to argue for their perspective now.
From the ancap perspective, you’re right: there will be no coercive justice system in a libertarian society. This does not mean that the issues you’ve mentioned will no be addressed. Just because we don’t plan to use your solutions doesn’t mean we don’t have any solutions of our own.
Libertarian scholars have put out a lot of work explaining how things like a justice system could work without a coercive institution. You don’t have to be convinced by those arguments, but pretending that they don’t exist is being willfully ignorant.
