  • In the comments of an article I read a statement that left libertarians are pro free market but anti capitalist. I always thought of the two as synonymous. How are they different?

  • I just read an article about a woman who gave birth at home. She and the father stayed with their child for several days, neither of them working. But on day 6 when they went into the hospital for a check up, they were treated like criminals or idiots. Their child was forcibly taken away, sent to a pediatric center at a different hospital, and tested for a thousand different things. Nothing was wrong. A social worker was trying to prove negligence to have the child sent to foster care! The couple were not allowed to leave until 9:30PM after a whole day of waiting, and were billed over $3,000 for the whole experience. If they had tried to protect their child, they would have been imprisoned and removed from their child longer.   For dire situations like this, I keep envisioning communities and neighborhoods banding together against it. The individual, our divided people fighting each other, is not strong enough to fight back against the gov’t. I imagine services like that privatized Detroit Police, which focuses on non-violent ways of deterring the situation, disarming the threat, etc. Very NAP. I just know if I come into contact with cops it’s going to be a hella bad time for me. I’ve been working out so I can actually be strong enough to learn self-defense without straining something. But it’s not enough. Even the best trained individual will be charged and detained for shooting at a cop in self defense, or something.
