    That clearly depends.

    Wrong. By modern-definitions of Libertarianism, anyone who owns slaves now or in the past, cannot be considered a Libertarian.

    If you own yourself you can offer yourself as a slave for collateral on a loan. Right. Keep the government out of it.

    Here is that racism again.

    To be clear, denying that black, asian, indian, or whatever people are not human is a racist attitude.

    I'm going to go with no, for the same reasons indentured servitude is illegal.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    That is hilarious.

    If a person was of the belief that another was not human, there is no racism.

    The question is "Can you be a slave owner and a libertarian at the same time?" In a libertarian state with laws that support the libertarian type of governing there would not be an extraneous law making indentured servitude illegal.

    only to those with a warp definition of racism. I am glad your ignorance amuses you. It amuses me too.

    I was responding to a post by OhIsee.Then, who was not talking about the past.



    There you go, talking about today again.
    IOt has no bearing on what I said. And you were responding to me.
    So maybe you should read and comprehend that to which you are responding.
    Post #20 of this thread. Look it up, and see who I was talking to.

    so, you're saying that black slavery was not a racist institution?

    Europeans did not consider Africans to be an inferior race?
