    Do you realize that the Bible mentions masters and servants/slaves?

    I'm not really sure that particular book is the one you should be using as your guide to the world. Unless you advocate killing children as a reasonable courses of action.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I voted yes. Libertarianism is already a whacko extremist philosophy. A libertarian who owns slaves really isn't that much of a stretch.

    And the founding fathers weren't libertarians. Not by a long shot, but the ones who owned slaves were still hypocritical.

    Is anyone remotely surprised that Hatuey was the one to start this thread?

    wow, that is the dumbest thing I have ever read. anyone that thinks a person is non-human based on skin pigmentation is a textbook racist.

    depends on what?

    depends on whether or not you believe that the slaves you own are human beings?

    one can be a Libertarian AND a slave-owner, if they believe their slaves are not human?

    slave-owners didn't think their slaves were not human.....only a lesser & inferior form of human...because they were black Africans.

    yes believing that someone is sub-human..or not even a human being, simply due to their race & origin...is the essense of racism.
