"And racism is a cowards way of avoiding the truth and a desperate attempt to slander & discredit the messenger."
Many times, this is true.
This isn't one of those times.
It's late and I'm tired.
Meet the new administration...same as the old administration. Just trade the war in Iraq for a war on the First Amendment.
Mat, I'm with you on the film incentives. As much as I like lower taxes, I want them for everyone; not the government picking winners and losers with subsidizies and favored status for one or two industries. I'm not sure why you claim it's libertarian...that's not something I see many libertarians agreeing with.
"the whole concept of Libertarian ideology is sort of 'every person for themselves'"
I think this is where you get libertarianism wrong in much of your writings. Independence and individualism are great, but so are teamwork and community. Libertarianism isn't about going it alone. It's about non-aggression and making choices of one's own free will. It's skeptical of government because government is legally empowered to violate those principles. Libertarianism isn't so much about humans' relations with each other as it is about their relations with government. It's voluntarism vs force.
Living in the woods, making your own clothes and killing your food doesn't mean you're a libertarian. And giving to charity, eating at restaurants and participating in a community yard sale doesn't mean you aren't one.
