Austrians: By Austrians I mean those who read some Rothbard and now feel qualified to go about the web defending ‘free markets.’ Usually these people are former Republicans who are still pro business, not pro market, and they just found some useful rhetoric. If these people stumbled upon a story about an employer throwing this employee’s kids into a wood chipper, he’d find a way to either justify it via economics, or simply say the people had a choice to not work there, so they must have preferred it. The ultimate argument for freedom is moral and ethical, not economic. And in reality lines blur. In reality the private entrepreneur and the political entrepreneur are often the same person to greater and lesser degrees given the situation. Theory is fine to explain things to people in general, you need to address the specifics of the situation sometimes, otherwise you just become an apologist for rich people behaving badly.
Randians: First, Ayn Rand wasn’t that good of a writer. Second, she wasn’t that good of a philosopher. Third, you’re too cultish about the whole damn thing. Fourth, she’s fucking dead, so get over it.
Republitarians: You’re still a fucking Republican, get over it. Until you oppose welfare and warfare, you’re just one of the heard. Please take your obsession with gay sex, fetus empowerment, and killing all the brown people in the world and go somewhere else. I don’t want you in my yard.
RonPaulians: Get the fuck over it. He’s not a Great Man, he’s just some guy. He’s more consistent on liberty than any other politician who has ever lived so far as I know, and the world would be immeasurably more tolerable if everyone were more like him, but he’s still a politician, a human, and fallible. Which is why you should not give a shit about his fucking domain name or how he’s getting it. So relax on that shit, okay?
Rothbardians: They only quote Rothbard. Read some more. Ditch the bow tie, you look like a fucking idiot.
