    you can have left wing fascism, pumpkin.
    the opposite of libertarianism is authoritarianism. that's just a fact. screw me. if you're libertarian, you don't think like an authoritarian. if you're an authoritarian, you think of government as your playground and you won't care about the cost to freedom. that's why it's so polar. you can't just say "ohh I only care about it here but not there" - libertarianism isn't like that. if you're like <that, you're an authoritarian, because you desire authority and you only like liberty when it suits you. libertarianism, hence, is a rejection of that clear "government is my toy" ethic. it's very clear cut like that.



    you know, the opposite of being a globalist or an SJW isn't being a right winger. do you think sargon is a right winger? do you think shoeonhead is a right winger? do you think chrisraygun is a right winger? um...no. don't generalise.
    Your argument is fallacious, saying that these ideologies are good is like a defence mechanism, whereby you only choose to believe in a view to stop something else without justifying the view itself.

    Also do try to be concise. Youre a known poster for engulfing people with paragraphs on the internet, boring them and making them give up on arguing with you. You may have a lot of time but others here are smart people who have some hope in life and education.

    If it puts your mind at ease, there are a range of political views in the staff.

    just left wing, liberal, SJW etc - everything that is a formula for somebody that will flag you for simply expressing your opinions that they don't agree with or like. you know how it is. I even got flagged the other day for "offending potential homeless people"...on the student room. I **** you not.

    that's what it's poking fun at, people think they're special for not totally aligning with one side of the spectrum when really it's very common

    Again, another fallacy. You're suggesting that only people that believe in your specific ideology also believe in freedom. But i dont want you to justify anything, I just wanted to demonstrate how your justification for the aforementioned views was fallacious and you're an epitome of the type of right wingers OP and Captain haddock were referring to. Thank you for playing sheep.

    It wasn't an insult at all mate. Don't get defensive, im just pointing out another tactic right wing internet arguers use. But yes, I do think you're suffering from far too much free time. People here go to top unis and you go Exeter doing a BA. It shouldnt be surprising that inundating people with paragraphs while they have some real work to do will ultimately lead you to earn a sense of satisfaction you so desperately need.

    At least you're better than our good buddy Dodgypirate here. He went open uni, explains why he's got the time!

    If memory serves me correctly, we have people who support Labour, Green, Lib Dem, Conservative, UKIP as their political party of choice on the team.

    Just because you may not have seen them doesn't mean a blanket statement at all of the staff is either relevant or factual, but there you go.

    Not sure I agree with abolishing state education even though I am very right wing. Every child needs basic education.

    ooh say fallacious again
    and only libertarians genuinely believe in freedom for freedom's or morality's sake. non-libertarians support it for pragmatic or fickle reasons relating to themselves. libertarianism isn't just freedom to one, it's freedom for all. anything other than libertarianism is "freedom only when it suits me" - an inconsistent, shadow belief in liberty

    It wasn't an insult at all mate. Don't get defensive,
    too right it wasn't, that was pathetic

    Hitler's rhetoric on Jewish people was basically identical to the rhetoric of the ANC on White people, they stole our history, they have all the money blahblahblah. Hitler was a progressive who also happened to be racist.

    I can think of a couple of people that are actually intelligent and don't take life too seriously on this forum. Some of these people are ready to beef you for years because you disagreed with them on one thing :lol:
    Quantex Hydeman WBZ144, rakas and Foo.mp3 (Depending) for example

    Also you OP 🤔
    Thanks, but I don't think I belong in the same category as those guys when it comes to debating or knowing my stuff...
