  • Is it possible to reconcile Islam and libertarian ideals?    Some Muslims assert the following verse that they can be: “<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: Georgia; font-size: medium; line-height: 21.280000686645508px; text-align: justify;”>” target=”_blank”>O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.”</span>   However, numerous verses cited by both anti-Islamists and Muslims who advocate Sharia suggest the contrary.

  • Regarding this video from @akokesh: LiveLeak.com – The Restraint of Muslims (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE) | Adam Kokesh I created a LL account for the first time to get involved in the discussions over there. Pretty interesting responses. Everyone there is assuming Adam is a Muslim or a Jew, or claiming he “forgot” 9/11 (when he referenced it in the video), or calling it “bullshit” without substantiation. I’m interested as to the Lme userbase’s response. Please watch the whole thing before commenting.

  • Are any of man’s philosophies so different from liberty that they are incompatible? I contend the idea of making such a judgement in itself is unethical. !!! Blog Vs Blog !!! Some say Islam is incompatible with Liberty: http://beingclassicallyliberal.liberty.me/2015/01/10/basic-human-freedoms-are-not-compatible-with-islam I say such assertions themselves are incompatible with Liberty: http://afh.liberty.me/2015/01/12/islam-fear-hatred-intolerance-incompatible-with-freedom/ What do YOU say?
