About MiliLib

There are a lot of things to cover here on the About MiliLib page, so no point in wasting a lot of time with a bunch of b.s.  Before we get started, realize that this site is not necessarily “Workplace Safe” nor is it meant for the feint of heart.  If you can’t handle the occasional swear word or two, then you may as well not spend any time here.  Most of the material here is news media kosher, language-wise, but sometimes harsh times will call for some harsh language.  See our Comments Policy below for more information on how heavy language is handled.

Sources

I get a lot of questions (and heat) from people who don’t like the “source” for whatever has been posted or question my “commitment” (to what, I’m not sure) because I posted something by someone who “is a [insert epithet regarding political philosophy or supposed payroll source here]“.  So here’s a quick run-down on how I aggregate information that ends up on this website:

The “source” of the information is irrelevant if the information itself is sound.  So I take each thing I read at face value without considering the source.  If the information appears accurate and of value, I accept it as-is.  If it’s too obvious in its slant or unable to back up its claims through logic or credible source materials, then I ignore it.  Finally, if it’s something you can find in Time Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, or on CNN/Fox/ABC/etc. then I will only post it if it backs up something else that’s already been discussed or a current meme of information that’s floating around.  Hence those who claim that this site has “no balance” or a “bias” are right: I don’t bother with mainstream crap because, well, why would you come here to read that?

Secondly, just because an item appears here that doesn’t necessarily mean that I personally agree with or endorse the idea or information.  There is a lot going on in the world and no one can claim to know everything that’s happening with any assurance.  I often disagree with things that I post here, but they are posted anyway because it’s the thought-trigger that counts, not the information that comes out of the chamber.  In other words, the bullet means nothing if the shooter doesn’t pull the trigger to set off the gun’s mechanism.

Here’s an example: I don’t necessarily agree that our ancient ancestors were created by or visited by aliens from another planet/dimension.  But there is enough evidence that could support that to make it at least a credible theory.  So to read about it, even if I don’t agree with it, creates questions and broadens my scope.  So I read those theories anyway.  I can’t conclusively say whether they’re bunk or truth.  It’s only my opinion that they’re wrong, but I have no more proof to disprove them than they have to prove themselves.

Therefore, attributing any idea you see on this website to me personally, unless I wrote the idea myself, is to make the mistake of assuming that this website is about me and me alone.  It’s not.  MilitantLibertarian.org is about the people who read the information here, not about the guy posting that information.

What is MilitantLibertarian.org?

Originally, this site was created by me, Aaron Turpen, as a way to promote the idea of libertarian thought.  I came up with the name as an oxymoron, since a libertarian would never be (physically) militant about anything.  No force, no fraud and all that.  I was tired of attending Libertarian Party and other freedom movement meetings (Constitution Party, et al) and finding that they were really nothing more than glorified debate clubs.  Nothing was happening, just a lot of people showing up to some meetings to argue with other people about the finer points of whatever it was that no one outside of their little clique gave a crap about.

So I decided to go online and become more, well, militant.  I was the unofficial political activist of the LP in Utah at the time and the Blogger-hosted blog was my way of being a loudmouth in between rallies, radio appearances, and so forth.  I started CivilDisobedience.us at about the same time I registered MilitantLibertarian.org in 2004.  CivilDisobedience was specifically for information on the USA PATRIOT Act, though now it is a t-shirt shop where my shirts are for sale.

In 2008, during the presidential elections, I started thinking about my little blog which had been often neglected, but remained popular (for whatever reason).  It occurred to me that more could be done with this than I was doing.  In 2009, a supporter of the site donated some money and so I donated my time and built something new out of it.  It’s still a blog, but now it’s more than that.

First, I post a lot more stuff than I used to.  I consider MilitantLibertarian.org to be a sort of information clearinghouse for all things police state, New World Order, and liberty oriented.  Beyond that, though, I have more ideas.  When someone in Canada pointed out to me that he found the site because he considered himself a “militant libertarian,” it clicked.  A network of like-minded people is out there.  Thousands of them, according to my visitors logs.  So the site became more than just my blog.

Now, I’m working towards expanding it into something else.  A network of Militant Libertarians.  The first step was to get the site working the way it is now.  The next step is to start finding people who find things to contribute to the site, who write material or publish videos/podcasts that fit this theme, and so forth.  That is what is happening now.  With that step comes an idea I’m calling the Mili Meme.  You can find out more about that here – let me know if you want to join!

Defining a Militant Libertarian

With this new step forward, I thought a formal definition of what a Militant Libertarian really is would be in order.  Especially since it’s so easy to get the wrong impression from the title.  So here, if you will, is the “official” definition of what a Militant Libertarian is:

Militant: aggressive: extremely active in the defense or support of a cause, often to the point of extremism.

Libertarian: advocate of individual responsibility: somebody who believes in the doctrine of free will.

(These both thanks to Encarta World English Dictionary)

So a Militant Libertarian is extremely active in the defense or support (even to the point of extremism) of individual responsibility and the doctrine of free will.

That should clear things up.

About This Website

This website is a hub of information as well as a node in what I’m calling the Mili Meme Network.  Visitors to the site will see that there are several categories of articles on the front page.  Most of them have overlap, but the following are loose explanations of what will likely be found in each of them:

Fighting Back – contains stories and information on fighting back against the New World Order, the Banksters, the Police State, the System, or whatever label you’d like to give the screw job that’s happening to our liberties.

Freedom Discussions – generally contains freedom-oriented topics and opinion.  The stuff that appears here is generally not specifically liberty-oriented, per se, though there is overlap between this section and the Liberty Commentary section (below).

Laughter’s Medicine – is where you’ll find something to brighten up things a little, whether the jokes/cartoons are political or not.  Not all things on this site have to be dismal or angry.  Right?

Liberty Commentary – is where the thoughts from libertarians and anarchists are showcased as commentary or opinion.

Mili Meme – this section is the latest “meme” in liberty/freedom news.  In Information Tech, a “meme” is a current theme or idea that is spreading very quickly around the Web.  A Mili Meme is the same idea, but for freedom and liberty info instead.

Militant Rants – rants by me, Aaron Turpen, the Militant Libertarian.  Mostly this is where I wax poetic (if you will) on whatever has pissed me off lately or whatever I feel needs venting.  Think of it as Aaron’s soapbox.

(discontinued) Militant Reviews – a sub-site of this website is my media reviews site of the same name.  On Militant Reviews, I review music, books, and movies.  When those pertain to Militant Libertarian, they are republished in this section.

Rethinking Paradigms – thoughts, ideas, and information that will force many to rethink what they thought was reality.  Things here are generally philosophically driven and go against the grain of common belief.

The NWO’s Chains – this section highlights articles showing how the New World Order Elitists are chaining us down through their various schemes.

Truth’s Flashlight – in this section, stories are those focused on digging out the truth behind a situation.  Most often, this is stuff the mainstream media ignores about a headline story, such as who’s really responsible or what’s behind the scenes.

USA: Police State – similar to The NWO’s Chains, this section highlights the Police State specifically and how it’s being established (or has been established, depending on your point of view).  Information here isn’t always US-centric, but it generally is.

When All Else Fails – this is sort of the “everything else” category for things that either don’t quite fit in one of the others or that are doubling up on them.  For instance, if two great Truth’s Flashlight stories are available, one of them may get published here so they can appear simultaneously on the site.

Ze Older Stuff – this category has two reasons for existing.  First, all of the posts from before the new site layout were all “uncategorized.”  So something had to be done for them; barring going through thousands of past posts and properly categorizing them, a “catch-all” was the best solution.  Second, it’s often informative and fun to look at old posts and bring them to the fore again.  This category does both.

A Note on Advertising

Like all endeavors, MilitantLibertarin.org has to be paid for.  Rather than accepting direct advertising from sponsors, which could compromise the site’s editorial feel or give false impressions of ethical violations, I’ve opted to instead use free-wheeling Google Ads (AdSense) instead.  These are totally uncontrolled by myself, come up specifically to match content on whatever page/post they are on, and merely pay me if someone clicks on them.

This, I feel, is a good compromise as it is both free market and ethical.  It also means that if ads for Sarah Palin show up, it’s not my fault.

The advertisements in the Friends of Liberty box are not paid advertisements and are merely promotions for other liberty-oriented websites or freedom-loving blogs that are likely to be of interest to visitors here.  Anyone can request to be included in the rotation of those ads.  Visit the link above for more information.

Comment Policy

The comments policy for MilitantLibertarian.org is simple: anyone can comment at any time and can do so anonymously.  No login, email address, etc. are required in order to comment.  There are, however, some considerations to be made: namely spam and pure nastiness.

Spam is handled through a filter, which flags comments that come from certain areas of the world (by IP address), contain specific keywords or phrases, or have excessive third-party links in them.  These are not published and are not moderated.  They are deleted daily, so if your comment doesn’t appear within a few minutes of posting it, it may have fallen awry of the spam filter.  In that case, you can email me and I will attempt to retrieve it before it’s deleted.  It may surprise people to know that for every comment published on the site, more than 700 spam advertisements are trashed.

The site also filters for keywords and phrases related to specific topics in regards to race, religion, and some swear words.  This is to keep extreme nastiness from ruining the website and to stop some types of hate speech, which call for physical action to be taken, from appearing here.  If you hate a specific race of people, a certain religion, or whatever, you are welcome to say so.  You are not welcome, however, to flood our comments sections with it nor are you welcome to call for violence against anyone.  Those who do so will find their comments filtered or removed.

Excessive use of swear words (especially the big 7) will likely get published, but be edited to remove some of those words.  This is done purely to keep us on the good side of the search engines and office/home filters for content.  If you don’t agree with this policy, feel free to start your own, competing website and curse away.

Hopefully all of this has answered your questions about what Militant Libertarian is.  If you have any ideas, suggestions, etc. feel free to let me know.

    Where are all of the writers from? Backgrounds?

      If you look at individual articles, you’ll find their original source. There are only a couple of contributors directly to Militant Libertarian, including myself.

    I don’t understand you people. Do you OR do you NOT want government to play a key role in you lives? You’re against Health Care but you offer NO solutions. You, my ignorant friends, are the problem in this society.

    • Samaritan says:

      I can self-govern. The government can stay the F$#@ out of key roles in my life. It has three functions and three functions only: 1. Promote the general welfare of it’s citizens, 2. Regulate interstate commerce, and 3. Provide for the common defense. Everything else should be left to the SOVEREIGN fifty states. The only ignorance I see on here is your statement about folks like me being part of the problem.

      “If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen.”

      • Maureen says:

        Well said Samaritan!

      • Ken says:

        You want more government than I do, Samaritan!

        I can promote my own welfare, thank you.

        There’s no such thing as interstate commerce, if there’s no state in the first place!

        I can handle my own defense, and if there’s a major threat to a bunch of people, it’s human nature to band together to defeat it… no need for a government to do that.

        You give a power-hungry government agent an inch, and they’ll take a mile.

        • Charles says:

          Ken, you are right, and you highlight the difference between a “left-libertarian” (anarchist) and a “right-libertarian” (minarchist). The state exists to preserve and protect the power and privelege of capital, and the sacred constitution has never prevented tyrannical political and economic institutions. Without the state, the people would be free to truly self-govern and organize as they so choose. The fifty states have often been as offensive to liberty as the feds have been. We must abolish both, in favor of freely-organized communities that self-regulate, self-defend, and self-provide. Eliminating the state’s monopolies on patents, money, banking, land, defense, regulations, etc is essential to both political and economic freedom for ALL.

          • Earnán says:

            And when a few of the people “self-govern and organize” themselves into armed criminal gangs, you’ll be the first to go running to any thug on a horse who promises to protect you.

            What a perfect example of a teenage anarchist you are.

          • Anonymous says:

            Good luck with “people would be free to truly self-govern and organize as they so choose. The fifty states have often been as offensive to liberty as the feds have been.

            A worthy goal but probably not even in our gggggggranchildrens’ lifetimes.

    • Ken says:

      I have plenty of solutions, for myself and my family, Anonymous… but, I don’t even know who you are, let alone know you, so why would I offer any solutions to you?

      It’s people like you, who insist that YOUR solutions must also be MY solutions, who are the problem.

    • Cato says:

      We people are of the philosophy of our Founding Fathers: We believe Man can govern himself. You, my ignorant friend, are the Cancer in this society – the Cancer that birthed the Progressives of Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and FDR. Read the Declaration of Independence; read the Constitution; read The Federalist Papers; and read the Anti-Federalist Papers. We want government to play a role in our lives… We simply want the limited Federal government role as outlined in our Founding Fathers’ philosophy.

    • Tony says:

      The answers are “Not” and “why should we offer solutions for anyone other than ourselves?”

      The second question presumes that some sort of one size fits all solutions should be offered by libertarians when the whole point of libertarians is that there is no such thing as “one size fits all” solutions to social problems.

      The problems in society are aggression, and people who cannot think beyond using aggression on all to achieve solutions THEY believe in. The problem is people who demand i come up with solutions for THEM, and they for me.

    • Tony says:

      By the way, straw man artist, we are not against “health care”. We are against *government mandated national “health care”*, which is nothing more than a ruse to line the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry that give donations to presidential candidates, as well as a ruse to introduce the revolting government practices of SPYING into people’s medical decisions.

      To say we are against health care because we want government to stay the hell out, is like saying we are against shoes because we don’t want government to dictates what shoes we buy.

  6. I’m a militant anarchist – I don’t want any government, so I am 100% for your cause of less government.

    However, once we have that I’ll want even less. All taxes are extortion. Money should be an actual good that is accepted for its intrinsic value, not fiat. Money like that can only be earned, and no one has a right to take it without my permission, even if they call ‘taxes’.

    I do not need ‘leaders’.

    • MiliLib says:

      I actually agree with you, Jeremy, but don’t believe that will ever happen on a large scale (no government). Mainly because there are three types of people and we’re outnumbered by the other two: tyrannists and sheeple. I’m going to do a video explaining this someday. :)

      • Jeremy says:

        Here’s where we have an angle: those other two groups are incompetent, lazy, and don’t produce anything.

        • Charles says:

          I don’t agree that sheeple are lazy and incompetent. It is their hard work and skills that are used by the tyrannists to build and maintain this exploitative and oppressive system. Tell all the workers and soldiers who work hard every day to contribute to a system that doesn’t really work for them that they are unproductive and lazy. But when they come to realize they’re being bent over a barrel by the lazy, unproductive, parasitic capitalists (the real “tyrannists”)propped up by the state and its money/banking/patent/land/defense monopoly, they’re actions might change.

      • Tony says:

        The sheeple problem can be solved in several generations, both by the unending revelation of information through the internet, and by the continued evil and incompetency of the tyrants.

        Which leaves the tyrants.

        But first let us worry about delegitimizing the rule of government.

    • Anonymous says:

      Jeremy, I find, on short reflection, that I’m attracted to more freedom, end of extortion, end of fiat money, “leaders” who are criminal extortionists and thieves, etc. Soldier on!

  7. Mark says:

    You guys sure know how to bitch, and that’s fine, we need people bitching. But it’s easy to bitch. It’s fun to bitch. You can look macho and impress stupid people when you bitch.

    It’s a thousand times harder to fix things.

    In fact, after seeing a bunch of “libertarians” while some of them are sincere and thoughtful, most of the loud ones are just doing a dance to show off.

    That’s what I see here, LOTS of bitching LOTS of macho bullshit, LOTS of “Look at me” shit, but no solutions.

    Get some solutions and get back to me.

    • Militant Libertarian says:

      And your solutions are? To go around calling out those who “bitch?” Looks like you haven’t bothered looking around the site much. Otherwise, you’d have seen plenty of solutions. Encapsulated in words like “nullification” and “secession” and so forth.

      • Earnán says:

        Mark pegged you right in the bullseye.

        Let’s see something other than puffed-up talk about “dismantle the state.” Let’s see some specifics.

        How would your non-state deal with crime?

        How would your non-state deal with fraud?

        Your juvenile anarcho-”libertarianism” naively assumes that people will not band together for bad purposes, that they’ll only combine in order to defend themselves from threats.

        Your willful ignorance of human history blinds you to the realities of human history. How many rights does a Somali of the “wrong” clan enjoy?

        • Tony says:

          Oh boy, not the “somali” canard again.

          As for your questions. They’ve long been answered.
          But it requires your interest in them for you to find them.

          And we all know you types are not actually interested, don’t we?
          Otherwise you wouldn’t be asking these tiresome questions.
          The only thing missing from your post is “BUT WHO’S GOING TO BUILD THE ROADS?”

    • Tony says:

      Books enough on the topic, lazy bastard.

      So don’t pretend you’re actually interested in the solutions when you obviously just like to leech of the state’s violence like the parasite you are.

  8. Freebie says:

    Here’s the solution: start systematically dismantling the State and continue dismantling until you’re down to the bare bones. We can do a complete reversal: eliminate government run education and teach about individual responsibility and liberty.

    The nice thing about it is that when you eliminate state functions, you eliminate a proportionate amount of corruption. Minimal State, minimal sleaze.

  9. Shagnasty says:

    You may resent the state, and believe you can survive without it, but it has always been part of your lives and it’s all you know.

    You have absolutely no understanding of what you will face in this world without strong organization to hold things together.

    That said, I believe you should have the opportunity to try things your way. An area of the country should be set aside for you, totally separate and free from outside influence. You can gather all the believers together and live as you wish. New rules or no rules. Then let pure unfettered human nature reign … and let the feeding frenzy begin.

    I’ll make sure I’m far enough away to avoid the blood spatter.

    • Militant Libertarian says:

      You mean like your precious state did with the Indians?

      • Earnán says:

        Your willful ignorance now approaches the level of willful stupidity.

        Yes, like the Indians. You did notice the part where “the bad guys”—your ancestors in fact—organized themselves into a predatory aggressive state that then proceeded to quite handily dispossess and kill/expel the “rightful” owners.

        You’re no “libertarian.” You’re a juvenile fool.

        • Tony says:

          No. He is a libertarian, and therefor willing to acknowledge exactly what his ancestors were and what they did.

          The reason you don’t seem to get this is because the concept of consistent honesty is foreign to your ilk.

          Either that or you’re one of those dumb superstitious morons who believe the sins of the father belong to his progeny.

    • Tony says:

      Fortunately, the STATE is not actually the biggest and most vicious mass murderer in human history (sarcasm alert), starting from its very inception during the agricultural revolution when – rather than using pleasant sounding euphemisms as is the custom today – it made no bones about its purpose being the conquest, enslavement, exploitation and robbing of innocent and peaceful people who were minding their own business, until the state realized it could maximize it profit by, you know, not killing them and allowing them a percentage of their own fruits so they could continue to be productive enough for future and enduring looting.

      Yes, it’s always been part of OUR lives. And that is exactly why we despise it. Because unlike you ignorant dupes, we actually know the emperor has no clothes.

    • Tony says:

      “You have absolutely no understanding of what you will face in this world without strong organization to hold things together.”

      A big fat strawman. You pretend we are against “strong organization”, as if we must conflate it with government. That is YOUR conflation and thus YOUR problem.

      Furthermore, what government does has nothing to do with “organization” in anything but a trough for them to eat from. If people thought only government could “organize” things, they wouldn’t need to be compelled at the barrel of a gun to pay for it.

      Third, hold WHAT together? People who don’t want to be? An economy that has been proven time and time again to actually be corrupted and devalued by government? Defense that is mostly necessary because of government creating hatred around the world for its aggressive foreign policy and imperialism?
      Cooperation that isn’t, because forced compliance is not cooperation?
      A justice system primarily used by government lackeys to subvert the constitution bit by bit in the name of their masters?

      Hold WHAT together?

      Historically, people were not gathered into “states” for the purpose of “organization”, but for the purpose of growing a geographical area full of TAXCOWS to leech off of.

      Again, if “organization” of the type you talk about requires government, compulsion at the barrel of a gun wouldn’t be necessary.

  10. As you know, El.Baradie became an iconic libertarian activist in Egypt with mild acceptance on the ground from the Egyptian whom are conservatives by nature, I will be so grateful to your help if you give me articles pro and against the guy. thanks a lot

  11. CounterSwarmer says:

    You Libertarians are pathetic.You brag all about being Alpha male.

    Yet you guys are so sheltered and physically unfit you won’t even get passed MEPS let alone survive Parris Island or evens survive in the “Free For all” society you advocate.

    Like they all say, Libertarians are middle class, well-educated,sheltered and unlikely to ever be in a position where they won’t have enough money to live.

    You Libertarians are recisely the type that would get eaten alive first in Anarchy.

    • Militant Libertarian says:

      Who’s “they all” and what makes you supposedly superior enough to claim that we’re all inferior? Yes, many “libertarians” are nerdy physical wastes, but others aren’t. I own this website and live in Wyoming. I have a background that includes championship marksmanship, survivalism (i.e. living in the wilderness with only a knife), etc.

      But you’re going to call me “sheltered” and somehow claim that because I’m educated (mostly SELF educated) I am inferior?

      Your remarks show me that you have no idea what to expect when anarchy comes.

      • Earnán says:

        What you can expect is people like CounterSwarmed to combine with others and hunt down anarchists like you.

        Your chest-thumping aside, no, you’re not educated. You’re tolerated.

        • Militant Libertarian says:

          Whatever, Earnan. You obviously haven’t read many of the posts on this site or you’d see how self-governance would work.

          If all you can do is criticize, maybe you need to think about the alternative, which is keeping what we have now and continuing down the road of serfdom.

            So someone who actually PREPARING for Anarchy!

            What do you think of this thing I posted?

            Yeah I’m doing the same thing you are learning taking survivalist classes and stocking up rations and ammo for the chaos that emerges.

            Too bad most “self-proclaimed” libertarians and Anarchists are buffoons who don’t bother preparing and are precisely the type who would be killed first in when government collapses!

            Oh BTW what do you think of Illegalism?As my username implies I’m Anarchist too of the Illegalist breed to be specific. I feel that us Illegalists along with you Survivalist Anarchists(I assume you’re this type of Anarchist?) are the ones with the best shot of surviving when all hell breaks lose in the coming of Anarchy!

            Don’t you think its a shame most of our fellow brothers Libertarians and Anarchists are FUCKING UNPREPARED for Anarchy nor are they learning the TRUE nature of Anarchy?Most Anarchists (especially those who are “self-proclaimed” libertarians) literally think things will just be the way they are after government falls-FUCK I knew Anarcho-Capitalists who literally believed that the “Free-Market will resolve everything”!!!!

            Well good luck with them-I’ll be preparing while they waste nothing but (uselessly) ranting their hate of government without actually taking action (not even at least attending Anarchist conventions :D).

      • Diehard Illegalist says:

        So you’re actually preparing stocks of ammunition, food rations, and guns to PREPARE for Anarchy?Damn I wish there were more Anarchists like you where I live in.

        So what do you think of this thing I posted?

        http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120412125614AAAOAAi

        I’m pretty much stocking up guns,food rations,and pretty soon am going to be buying Blackmarket stuff (grenades,etc.) once I find the means too.

        I see by your comment you would agree that many “self-proclaimed” libertarians and anarchists in generals won’t last when government falls eh?

        I really wish more Anarchists where I lived think like we both do that we can actually FUCKING PREPARE for Anarchy rather than merely ranting!

        Oh what do you think of Illegalism by the way?I’m Anarchist too but of the Illegalist breed specifically. I think we Illegalists as a whole have the best shot of surviving Anarchy of all the breeds of Anarchists (though I would also count the Survivalists Anarchists such as yourself also having a good chance of surviving the chaos of no-government).

        • Diehard Illegalist says:

          LOL duplicate post!

        • Militant Libertarian says:

          I fail to see a difference between being an anarchist (in practice) and being an illegalist. It seems to be a redundancy in terms or “titles.”

          In fact, your whole statement with these mini-labels makes zero sense to me. You’re either an anarchist or you’re not an anarchist. You either practice anarchy or you just talk about it. What does “illegalist” even mean?

          The same sort of bullshit sub-labels have destroyed much of the libertarian movement as each person attempts to make themselves “different” and somehow “better” than others. It’s the primary reason I left the libertarians altogether and started looking deeper into things (and my own philosophies).

          Adding all of these labels, then defining them, then pretending they mean something is just mental masturbation so that the actual world and work can be ignored.

    Anyone finding pause for thought in the juxtaposition between purported of this blog/website/commentary/et al and the medium of internet communication only made possible by governments and corporate ventures?

    Personally, I dont want self governance any more than self medication when ill. Some things are best done by civilizations vice mobs of individuals.

    That said, the young should protest and be angry. I salute your potential energy. For those over 40, only losers use the moniker of “anarchist” to describe themselves when in reality are kinetically challenged.

      You don’t know much about how the Internet works, do you? Nor do you, apparently, know what anarchy is. You don’t seem to know what “kinetically challenged” means either.

      In short, you’re just another Internet ignoramus trolling comment areas.

      Lucky for you, in a libertarian society you would be allowed to have others tell you how to live.

      The only difference is you wouldn’t get to tell OTHERS how THEY should live.

      But the question here, of course, is which of the above two you’re really all about.

      It is the difference between being medicated by someone you trust, or trying to shove medication down the throat of someone who doesn’t want your help.

    A question I got?Do you feel personally feel the US as well as the pretty much the world is heading towards full-scale Anarchy?

    Oh just some of us Anarchists like you and me who are actually preparing are being mocked for “stupid paranoia”!

  14. Diehard Illegalist says:

    Oh since this site has “militant” in its title how about some articles be posted in the future about survivalism and the nature of Anarchy?And maybe some self-defense and stuff on how to use guns and fight?Just for the heck of it and the fact this site is the “Militant Libertarian”?

    • Militant Libertarian says:

      I don’t post a lot of that because it’s already all over the Net. No point. A friend of mine at FreeWestRadio.com has a whole Survivalist section and Rawles has a great site at SurvivalBlog.com.

      Obviously, you didn’t read the definition of “militant libertarian” above either.

    I just wanted to say that I appreciate the site. I’m a daily visitor to it. Thank You for being the voice that fills the gap between Libertarian and Constitutionalist.

    • Tony says:

      A big bunch of nothing.

      Maybe whomever wrote it should take a course in consistent and logical reasoning, instead of thinking an angry brain fart constitutes a good article.

      But let it be said, you know how “libertarian” a guy really is when he fears and hates freedom more than the state and state-extortion (taxation).

      It is remarked sometimes that the difference between a minarchist and anarchist is “6 months”.
      Of course, some so-called libertarians stay mentally neutered forever. Seeing a role for a small government and its force is like seeing a role for a small tumor, and being ignorant enough to believe it will stay small and benign.
