    A libertarian can either be capitalist or socialist... lol. They are both economic philosophies that small government libertarians on both sides happen to believe can work without government force, because they believe their preferred economic theory is part of the natural state of man and will work without government force. I think some forms of socialism are not coercive, because many societies have engaged in various forms of it such as collective land for hunting and access to resources. I prefer voluntary communities that allow such groups to organize however they choose best. If the other poster wants to live a socialist community, then by all means, he should be allowed to.

    Re: AP Exclusive: Former Palin aide pens tell-all

    I am curious as to the validity of the emails.

    Who verified them and how do we know they are real.

    It is very easy to fake emails.

    Who saves 60,000 emails over a period of years? Hands everbody, who has done this?

    Then are you saying that the American Bar Association and the National Association of Colleges and Schools, Columbia and Harvard are all part of a conspiracy deceive you and Sarah Palin concerning Obama's qualifications to graduate from Harvard Law school?

    Nope. Not even after I dug up a link from when the President was originally appointed as the President of the Harvard Law Review. He blew right past it.

    It is merely a fact. There is no other way to see it. 'Libertarianism', as a polirtical tendency, was initially used to connote a spectrum of socialist thought for about a hundred years, until the late 40's/early 50's, when a bunch of American disciples of Ayn Rand took the word, and started calling themselves 'Libertarians', despite the fact that thier ideology was/is very nearly the polar opposite of the literal definition, which is still used ,in this context, everywhere but the United States. Again, you don't have to take my word for it.

    Except one is the literal definition, which has been used for almost 200 years, the other is a phony American permutation that's only been around for about 50 years, or so. Also, while both philosophies place a certain emphasis on individual autonomy, and a critique of authority, they are very nearly polar opposites in every other respect.

    If you define Socialism as it has traditionally been conceived, it's in no way coercive. The heart of Socialism, as it had always been conceived, was democracy. The Soviet/Maoist/etc. variant was a significant departure, one that was harshly condemned by the leading Socialist intellectuals.

    Agreed.
