I think Ron Paul is too trusting of Daniel McAdams, and I think Daniel McAdams works for the Kremlin — his lies have been so cynical, so flagrant, so devoid of integrity, and so lockstep with Kremlin talking points that I see no other explanation.
THE ENTIRE RON PAUL WORLD HAS GONE OFF THE LUNATIC EDGE???
(Rothbardians = Lunatic Fringe)
Seriously? Were these people all freaking crazy all the time, and I just thought that they were being playful? I mean, I thought it was all normal political posturing. A big game. But are these people really as nuts as they sound?
I mean, WTH is wrong with these people? I mean, our government operates by bureaucratic incompetency, bureaucratic self interests, general ideology, and presidential ideology and whim. There is nothing different about our government operating by incompetency, self interest, ideology and whim, than any other government operating by incompetency, self interest, ideology and whim.
What is worse is that westerners in general have adopted this absurd christian universalism, and worse, have advocated the spread of democracy, and the democratic socialism of high trust societies to the rest of the world – a world which consists almost entirely of low trust, racial, tribal, and familial corrupt polities, incapable of such institutions as the west uses regularly.
What’s worse, and ironic, is that the Jewish method of anarchic universalism, is even WORSE than the christian – it’s not just wrong, it’s suicidal.
All rothbardians are advocating is ghetto ethics: the ethics of levantine polities.
The rest of the world is largely made up of grownups: you can choose whatever order you need to for the polity that you must make use of, but whatever order you do choose must be artificially imposed by the threat of violence, since all ORDERS by definition require that we reduce transaction costs and produce commons, even if that commons is limited to the reduction of transaction costs: ie; trust.
Ron Paul is just another lunatic now.
