Indeed, I Want To Shoot You In The Head - Part The Second (Phoning It In)

When I was actively arguing with people of the anarchist/libertarian/voluntaryist ilk, I was very hot to write a series of posts refuting their worldview and political philosophy.  Since pretty much every one of those folks have defriended me on Facebook, I admit my motivation has evaporated and have since found more fun in the quagmire known as the 2nd Amendment (yes, confrontation seeks me out).

While this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, an old piece by David Atkins provides a crystal seed for what I'd intended to post in my second installment.  I had way more to discuss in my notes, and maybe I'll get to all of it some day, but for now I'll let that link speak for me, at least until somebody says something patently stupid in rebuttal.

I'm tempted, just to see the piece.

This--"I was very hot to write a series of posts refuting their worldview and political philosophy"--makes me think you may e the reincarnation of Ignatius J. Reilly.

I once wrote a piece pointing out that anarchy has never and will never exist because in the absence of civil authority thug rule has always and will always take its place. And I got some of the more serious flaming I've gotten from anarchists, some of whom accused me of being a commie. Then I wrote about what a bunch of useless, bungling idiots communists have been and got an even more absurd trip into some of the more elaborate and psychotic cul de sacs of the pseudo-leftist mind. I've been revisiting some of that territory on my blog this week.
