    Technically they are. Or were, rather, before some far-righters decided the term fit them better after discovering they didn't hate weed and buttsex as much as they thought they did.

    (BTW, if that's actually true, then they are welcome to join us. We would have some major disagreements to sort out, however...)
    Meh, depends. Libertarianism isn't as rigid a philosophy as most, so frankly value systems and positions can vary. Left-libertarians, such as Bill Maher, Peter Joseph, and Noam Chomsky have no issue working with liberals torwards common goals. And left-libertarian organizations such as the Democratic Freedom Caucus, the ACLU, and the Venus Project have made a massive impact on the movement and have made impressive steps towards our shared goals. In Florida CD 13 progressives and libertarians lined up behind the Libertarian Party candidate, Lucas Overby, a self-described "left-atarian", to oust David Jolly. Libertarians and liberals aren't such strange bedfellows, it's just a matter of realizing that libertarians are far more diverse and open-minded than Fox News (which desperately tries to use them to bring more votes into the GOP) would have you believe.

    I can understand liberal/progressive condemnation of libertarianism, as here in the US the term libertarian has come to be a term to describe worship of the free market. But historically and internationally libertarian ideas are very much entrenched on the left, taking form in communist, socialist, and mutualist (market socialist) ideologies. The thought behind this is that the feudalism and corporate oligarchy that results from unfettered capitalism is not actually compatible with an idea that seeks individual liberty and personal autonomy.

    More lies from US Conservative on racism, pushed by Nixon and then Reagan since the Civil Rights Act.
    A CRA that today's GOP no longer supports, nor will they say they would have voted for it .
    Nimby, your views are as credible as your predictions on the mid terms-that is to say they are not credible.

    Re: Is radical Islam compatible with a free society?

    This is your post to me, #207, focusing on your lies about my election predictions.
    Nothing on the thread or my well-reasoned facts in the post you quoted, US Conservative.
    Just telling me my reasoning is warped.

    Nimby you reasoning is as warped as your predictions about the mid term elections.
    This is your post #217, US Conservative.
    Telling me that my reasoning is warped once again, and lying about my mid term election predictions.

    This is post #242, your third straight post telling me about how credible my views are.
    As well as lying about my predictions on the mid terms .

    you worried about all Muslims? some?

    what's the deal?
    Well, when people try to impose it on others (and fail), death happens:

    Police: Man suspected of beheading woman in workplace recently tried to convert co-workers to Islam | Q13 FOX News
    Most self-described liberals and progressives aren't nearly as liberal or progressive as they believe themselves to be.

    The single greatest threat to liberty is the collective belief that government grants it.

    Yes. I thought about that. But radical does not mean crim8nal. Radicals can do criminal things like blowing up an abortion clinic. But most will not have the guts to fight, what they consider great evil and will work hard to and bring up a family happily evereverafter.

    That is why I don't think there is a problem of incompatibility.
