I'm surprised we haven't had some savvy libertarian telling us how this is really protecting Africa - and how grateful the good people of Niger should be.

Now where did I leave my Leppo?

That's because libertarianism is a confused ideology rooted in the Stone Age.

Just your opinion which means very little. Libertarianism is actuall a good phylosophy with the idea of smaller government. People become responsible for themselves and are more free to do whatever they want unless it harms someone else. Government should be there for defense of the county and a few minor other things. They should not get involved in every little detail of our lives.

A libertarian example is to legalize marajuana. Why does the government regulate that? It is our body and we should be able to do what we want with it. Cigarettes and alcohol are legal and they do more harm than marajuana. We criminalize people selling and using it and that takes up our precious resources having to keep them in prisons. If someone uses marajuana, how does that harm anyone else?

Interesting.

So would you decriminalize the disruption of websites with targeted DoS attacks too?

Don't know where that example came from out of nowhere. But anyway, if you reread my message, you can see where I said as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

Well, as the deliberate disruption of a website has a provable and detrimental impact on the revenue from affiliate marketing for that website (which could even be the sole souce of funding), I suppose you would believe the offence of Denial or Degradation of Service should remain illegal and could warrant a claim for loss of earnings. And in this hypothetical situation, if that disruption was concerted and lasted many hours during peak usage time, such a claim could be significant. I'd imagine you might also encourage Internet Service Providers to respond to legal firms in a timely manner.

You are being very specific on which laws should be there and there are too many to address each one individually.

Regarding doing something that may cause loss of earnings, that could be a civil matter. That's not my expertise about civil versus criminal but libertarians would still have courts available to handle both civil and criminal cases. Murder, rape, theft, and other similar crimes will still remain illegal in a libertarian society.

I'm quite libertarian in spirit - I don't like authority, or telling people what to do, or doing things that harm other people - but as a political ideology, it is way too simplistic.

If I eat meat I contribute to climate change, and therefore harm people. How does libertarianism deal with that?

Or what if the meat I eat is cruel to the animal? Should government set regulations to prevent that?

Or what if the food I am sold is full of unhealthy ingredients? Is it up to me to test the food?

Or what if the fish I catch is depleting fish stocks for people not yet born? I could go on...

The idea of "people should be able to do what they like as long as it doesn't harm others" is kindergarten philosophy. When we grow up, we realise the world is more complicated.

"If I eat meat I contribute to climate change, and therefore harm people. How does libertarianism deal with that?" They don't deal with that. Do the democrats or republicans control the meat that you eat because of climate change? Does the green party? Who does?

"Or what if the meat I eat is cruel to the animal? Should government set regulations to prevent that?" Eating meat IS cruel to the animal. How can anyone think otherwise. Even if you think they kill the animal without pain or that they are grown specifically for food, you wouldn't think that way if it was your son or daughter that someone was eating.

"Or what if the food I am sold is full of unhealthy ingredients? " So? The government should not regulate how much fat, sugar, or salt that I can put in my diet. As an adult, it is up to me to determine if I should eat that candy bar or not. All I ask is that the company disclose what ingredients are in the product so I can make an informed decision if I want to eat it.

"Or what if the fish I catch is depleting fish stocks for people not yet born?" That's a problem. But what can you do if the fishermen decide to go out into international waters where no country can impose their laws?

"The idea of "people should be able to do what they like as long as it doesn't harm others" is kindergarten philosophy." I know. It is so simple that everyone should understand it and agree to it.

"When we grow up, we realise the world is more complicated." Not much more complicated. We just make it more complicated by getting the government involved. Have you ever looked at the tax codes? That's way too complex. Why not just simplify it and say citizens have to pay 15% of their income and there are no deductions. But no, the government has created different laws every year that you need to hire an accountant to do your taxes. How much depreciation can you take on a new air conditioner that you installed in a rental property? Did you know that it makes a difference on how many hours you work managing your properties? Too complicated.

Suppose has to be a drone base as most people (80%) in USA have no passports (nowhere else as good as the good ol’USA so what’s the point!) and pos their pilots, so even they can get big and fat and stay in the insular town without moving and bomb some dam foreign place like some virtual reality game.
