    Yes, I'm an anarcho-capitalist. The thing I have noticed about communists is that they are impatient and want it all right now, so they empower the state in their attempt to get that change right this very moment without even realizing they are giving the state everything it needs to completely control everyone.

    us older libertarians are very much friends with reality, though.
    ( the "free market" doesn't give me wood... I'm only turned on by things that actually exist)
    What about older socialists? Communists? Are you automatically the only one in reality?

    Most communists today advocate peaceful methods, at least from what I've seen. Jesus, you're really an anarcho capitalist? I don't see how it is possible at all without countless people suffering (sounds like today..) but to each his own.

    It's nice to know communists are learning.

    Yes, I'm really an anarcho capitalist. Why would people suffer?

    we're not the only ones in reality, there are other ideologies firmly rooted in reality.

    socialism and communism aren't counted among us, but we're certainly not alone.

    older socialists/communists pretty much exist only in academia... where they poison young impressionable minds with their fairy tales of a utopia that cannot and will not exist on earth while it's inhabited by humans..
    if it were not for academia, they would starve and cease to exist..... or become capitalists .

    those darn joos and their infiltration of the university to force communism on our poor youth who clearly can't think for themselves

    go home everyone. the Right has declared itself the winner. you can win just about anything when you pose your position as non falsifiable
