I know I talk about natural rights a lot and the complete and utter failure of libertarians to actually back them up, even though they insist, without a shred of evidence, that they’re actually real. I point out this failure every single time I find it and most of the time, libertarians still pretend that they’ve got a good reason to believe it, even though they can’t manage to produce that reason.
I also describe their political ideology as quasi-religious because everything they say is based on faith.
So finally, a libertarian who has done all of the above has come clean and admitted that he’s really got nothing. He doesn’t recognize that he has nothing, of course, that’s exactly what he’s admitted.
I have proved it to MY satisfaction. My opinion on this matter is the only one that counts to me.
I will exercise my rights regardless whether you, anyone else, or any government says me yea or nay.
That is all the proof I need. :
Have you noticed all of the religious ideology he’s put in there? All he cares about is his opinion. He doesn’t care if it’s true, he cares if it makes him feel good. He isn’t willing to listen to anyone who says any differently because he’s right because he wants to be right. If you substituted “faith” for “rights” in the second line, you’d have the same thing that religious apologists say all the time.
These people are nuts, pure and simple. They’re so nuts that they don’t even know that they’re nuts. They are so completely out of touch with reality, out in libertarian la la land, that they can’t even conceive that they could possibly be wrong. It doesn’t matter. Reality is an inconvenience and logical reasoning is a trap. For them, their quasi-religion is all that matters. Interestingly enough, every single one of these libertarians that I’ve encountered who acts like this is also a fundamentalist Christian. Crazy is crazy.
And you wonder why you can’t have rational discussions with libertarians? This is why.
