He's a leftist for sure

2020-02-16 09:59:22 UTC  

^ this tbh

>reducing everything as left or right
This is your brain on partisan politics instead of principled politics

2020-02-16 09:59:52 UTC  

"gives them a platform" isn't a phrase anyone to the right of Sargon can use without cringing

2020-02-16 10:00:08 UTC  

A right winger would never talk about it being bad to platform someone esp not ancap spergs

2020-02-16 10:00:27 UTC  

I cheer when White Nationalists, Fascists and Communists get deplatformed by private corporations

2020-02-16 10:00:31 UTC  

It just isn't how anyone other than a progressive thinks

2020-02-16 10:00:42 UTC  

You don't have a right to their platform, they are a private company

2020-02-16 10:01:01 UTC  

How is this not a fucking parody

2020-02-16 10:01:04 UTC  

yet another example of a ancap begging so hard to be ass raped by big corp

2020-02-16 10:01:06 UTC  

You cannot be a real persono

2020-02-16 10:01:17 UTC  

Govt. is not restricting your speech when Twitter bans you

2020-02-16 10:01:28 UTC  

Thermonuclear you dont have the right to clean water, the Water companies are private companies

2020-02-16 10:01:32 UTC  

What if a corp has more power than a gov?

2020-02-16 10:01:54 UTC  

If they do the exact same thing tell me how that isn't equally bad

```The primary objective of Bill 64 is indicated in its title, a Bill for Proportioning Crimes and Punishments in Cases Heretofore Capital, and then stated specifically in Section 1 that capital punishment, "...should be the last melancholy resource against those whose existence has become inconsistent with the safety of their fellow citizens" and "...no crime shall be henceforth punished by deprivation of life or limb except those hereinafter ordained to be so punished."2 With these directives included in the introduction, the bill aimed at curtailing the widespread and indiscriminate use of capital punishment, which had been common under colonial law, while insuring a more uniform dispensation of justice throughout the commonwealth.```

@Ethreen42 The difference is of consent. You can choose to not do business with the company. You cannot choose your govt. in any practical manner.

2020-02-16 10:02:22 UTC  

Castration was a big improvement from capital punishment.

2020-02-16 10:02:36 UTC  

I don't consent to being de platformed

2020-02-16 10:02:45 UTC  

what if there's a monopoly, or a cartel?

2020-02-16 10:02:47 UTC  

>ancap talking about consent

this is too good

2020-02-16 10:03:03 UTC  

Can people below the age of 18 consent @Thermonuclear

2020-02-16 10:03:04 UTC  

?

2020-02-16 10:03:23 UTC  

@Samaritan™ Consent is about something to which you have rights. You don't have a right to someone else's private property in the first place.

2020-02-16 10:03:51 UTC  

Imagine thinking you have a right to others' private property and then calling me a leftist instead

2020-02-16 10:04:08 UTC  

did he just dodge that question? at least stand for your positions...

2020-02-16 10:04:15 UTC  

Is it possible for someone under 18 to consent though? @Thermonuclear

2020-02-16 10:04:30 UTC  

@Greasy >What is there is a monopoly?
I don't see a problem in that

2020-02-16 10:04:31 UTC  

They are having trouble 'bleaching' BKP content from #palaestra_debates

2020-02-16 10:04:42 UTC  

See he is totally a leftist

2020-02-16 10:04:55 UTC  

Real ancaps say that there wouldn't be a monopoly without state intervention

2020-02-16 10:05:00 UTC  

He's definitely trying to discredit the banner he flies under.

2020-02-16 10:05:02 UTC  

Lol.

2020-02-16 10:05:05 UTC  

I'm not an ancap and I know that

2020-02-16 10:05:14 UTC  

Well if you're saying Twitter and co are just private corps and not public platforms they should be regulated to uphold the American constitution, since they actively censor and stop information they dont like from reaching Billions of people

2020-02-16 10:05:33 UTC  

@Samaritan™ Leftists have a problem with monopoly. They want to use the state to break them. Libertarians don't care about monopolies, they are a result of the efficiency of the rational actor.

2020-02-16 10:05:36 UTC  

The fact that he won't say no to can kids consent disturbs me

2020-02-16 10:06:10 UTC  

>monopolies
>efficiency

lmao

2020-02-16 10:06:16 UTC  

Libertarians think monopolies are only formed because of state intervention

2020-02-16 10:06:30 UTC  

@Jeremy So far I have only received bad faith ramblings and ad homs, not a single response to any of my arguments
