"When a being is vigorous, it projects loftiness in its own future without having to consciously undertake this; this is nature itself. It wants more experience of itself, which means it can neither stay the same nor cease to exist."


--Jakob

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.

Agreed. I've become a lot more anarchistic myself recently.

Im a constitutionalist, in that I believe law is required to keep people from making more laws.

The entire point of the constitution, leading up the article 9, is a resistance against government and central power.

So the law of the USA is originally this: you let me be or I shoot you in the head

very good law in fact.

My stance is that every human that has force-applied into another humans bloodstream a shot of brain-chemistry altering drugs, must be put against the wall and executed. Thats the most merciful stance I can come up with for the pharma-gestapo.

The absolute worst are the people that think they are doing it for the persons own good. I cant express what I wish to do to them, for their own good.

Indeed it is almost impossible to fathom those depraved depths. 

A constitutionalist is a good way of understanding anarchy principle, I think.

Yeah sure, it's the lust for freedom to put it bluntly. The pathos is of ruggedness and comparable if it isnt European punkrockers, but anarchy nominally aims for the absence of central power - whereas Constitutionalism has power as a symbol to sanction its violence against those that infringe on the liberty of being.

Before these Koch brothers or whatever turned it into such a travesty wth Sarah Palin for gods sake, Libertarianism always had my sympathy. I like Ron Pauls consistency.

It will be amusing to start it up again and cover Trumps flank on the Right. We can show that Trump is in fact very moderate and placating.

Yes precisely. It can be sufficient simply to say "you know Trump never said Mexicans are rapists right?". The religion of anti-trump is as fragile and unreal as it is ugly.

But I'm not going to accept responsibility for that. Just sayin'.

Yeah, but things have changed since then. We are not allowed to shoot people any more.

I understand what you mean. I also have a problem with some words. One of them is being labeled a feminist when I am simply for rights on both sides, both men and women alike. Like many words, it has taken on a muddy connotation. We don't wish to see individuals, only "sardines in a sardine can".
What word then would you substitute for "law"?

Laws are logical, are they not?
Granted, they are not always logical or reasonable but if we do away with the more logical/reasonable ones, how long might our species survive?

Granted, laws can sometimes appear to be "fickle" -- to name two, the prohibition law and the abortion law.
But on second glance, we can see the wisdom of overthrowing the first to give way for the second though nothing is black and white...and there is wisdom and practicality there - I almost shudder to say.

I have never considered you a feminist. And I agree, equality amongst all people.

What word then would you substitute for "law"?

I have none. Well, maybe "limiters".

Laws are logical, are they not?

No, not always. Anymore, not mostly.

Granted, they are not always logical or reasonable but if we do away with the more logical/reasonable ones, how long might our species survive?

I will admit that without laws many, perhaps even most, people would not do the right thing. Ten commandments were good enough for the Jews for a while. "Harm none" pretty much covers the need.

Granted, laws can sometimes appear to be "fickle"  -- to name two, the prohibition law and the abortion law.
But on second glance, we can see the wisdom of overthrowing the first to give way for the second though nothing is black and white...and there is wisdom and practicality there - I almost shudder to say.

What right does any government have to tell me what I can and cannot drink? What right does any government have to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body?

This is true. So the government says, "Let's make a law forbidding these things."

So now we have people doing ridiculous things but now they are also criminals.
