Harrison Bergeron – Libertarianism Philosophy for Dummies


Libertarianthought.com, THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General. Some things about living still weren’t quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that …

Libertarianism Philosophy Arguments: Happiness In Slavery

Happiness in Slavery

Politics and religion in Libertarian Thought. Are there any more controversial topics than these ? Sometimes the two intertwine and blur. The reason for this is that both have a fundamental effect on how we live. Because of this, our political choice becomes all the more important.

Some people find voting a waste of time. Perhaps it is so, but in that way they do not exert their influence on their own society. With the elections coming, I believe it is primordial to give reason a voice in this debate. This is why I contend that there …

People Discover Guns May be Responsible for Deaths

February 10th, 1999 – People Discover Guns May be Responsible for Deaths
Just when you thought it was safe to hate the NRA, there comes along a group of dipshits even worse. Due to the nearly 14,000 firearm related deaths that occured in 1996, a number of American cities are suing the gun industry. Setting a good example for the citizens of these cities, similar lawsuits have popped up everywhere. Nudists and fans of nudity are suing clothing companies and fig trees, drug users are suing Nancy Reagan, and retards are suing …

Rights

Natural rights

The basis of politics is rights – whenever a society and government upholds them or not. This is the fundamental distinction. How one arrives to the concept of rights is therefore a crucial issue – one cannot fully understand politics if one does not understand how we arrive at it. I have already written a short text on this subject, but it is definitively a positive thing to explore it in more detail, like any other deduction.

Of course, since ethics is the basis of politics, I have to start from proper ethical premises, that is, egoism. Someone …

Constitution

The Real Constitution Discovered in Parallel Universe

The startling document reproduced below came my way from an unregistered, and indeed non-existent, source called Angelcynn.warp. I can only guess that it drifted in over the ether from a parallel universe, where things are exactly the same as in this one, with the exception that in this other universe a form of constitutional honesty prevails.

We the people of the nearly Perfected Millennial State, large and containing multitudes, unified only by a common dedication to abstract propositions – the most important of which is that All Men Are Created Equal – do …
