    Default The thread of Wisdom

    I preach now unto thee, the wisdom bestowed unto me through hard work and turmoil.

    Commandment 1: Instant coffee tastes worse than water, no matter what you spike it with.

    Commandment 2. Never buy nails, wait it out until someone else does then mooch it up.

    Commandment 3. Smiling will ease your nerves, and is just nice in every way. Do it.

    Now children of these blessed halls, bless us with your wisdom!

    2. Don't spit into the wind.
    3. Don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger.
    4. Don't mess around with Jim. (probably Invisible Jim??)

    Be a gentleman. Never talk about money. People may want to borrow.

    Take a hint: some people can't take a hint. Take a club or a step back.

    Remember to be humble and patient when dealing with the enemy: It's much easier too knock someone out when they're off guard.

    if you take up a new habit to replace an addiction, you will more than likely become just as addicted to it

    if you're cheerful, pleasant and appear to be as threatening as a disney movie heroine, nobody will suspect you of anything

    always refuse the first price offered... if they won't budge go ahead and pay it, but oftentimes they will and you'll save some money

    In the beginning, man dwelt in a state of Nature, until the serpent Government tempted man into Initial Coercion.

    Government is the Great Satan. All Evil comes from Government, and all Good from the Market, according to the Ayatollah Rand.

    We must worship the Horatio Alger fantasy that the meritorious few will just happen to have the lucky breaks that make them rich. Libertarians happen to be the meritorious few by ideological correctness. The rest can go hang.

    Government cannot own things because only individuals can own things. Except for corporations, partnerships, joint ownership, marriage, and anything else we except but government.

    Parrot these arguments, and you too will be a singular, creative, reasoning individualist.

    Parents cannot choose a government for their children any more than they can choose language, residence, school, or religion.

    Taxation is theft because we have a right to squat in the US and benefit from defense, infrastructure, police, courts, etc. without obligation.

    Magic incantations can overturn society and bring about libertopia. Sovereign citizenry! The 16th Amendment is invalid! States rights!

    Private education works, public education doesn't. The publicly educated masses that have grown the modern economies of the past 150 years are an illusion.

    Market failures, trusts, and oligopolies are lies spread by the evil economists serving the government as described in the "Protocols of the Elders of Statism".

    Central planning cannot work. Which is why all businesses internally are run like little markets, with no centralized leadership.

    Children, criminals, death cultists, and you all have the same inalienable right to own any weaponry: conventional, chemical, biological, or nuclear.

    If you don't have a gun, you are not a libertarian. If you do have a gun, why don't you have even more powerful armament?

    Better to abolish all regulations, consider everything as property, and solve all controversy by civil lawsuit over damages. The US doesn't have enough lawyers, and people who can't afford to invest many thousands of dollars in lawsuits should shut up.

    The "Party of Oxymoron": "Individualists unite!"

    Flip answers are more powerful than the best reasoned arguments, which is why so many libertarians are in important government positions.

    It's time the new pro-freedom libertarian platform was implemented; child labor, orphanages, sweatshops, poorhouses, company towns, monopolies, trusts, cartels, blacklists, private goons, slumlords, etc.

    Libertarianism "rules" Internet political debate the same way US Communism "ruled" pamphleteering.

    No compromise from the "Party of Principle". Justice, happiness, liberty, guns, and other good stuff come only from rigidly adhering to inflexible dogmas.

    Minimal government is whatever we say it is, and we don't agree.

    All historical examples are tainted by statism, except when they favor libertarian claims.

    The most heavily armed libertarian has the biggest dick and thus the best argument.

    Private ownership is the cure for all problems, despite the historical record of privately owned states such as Nazi Germany, Czarist and Stalinist Russia, and Maoist China.

    The best multi-party democratic republics should be equated to the worst dictatorships for the purposes of denouncing statism. It's only a matter of degree.
