Africa: Encompasses all of the countries pictured above, including the entire continent of Europe. This landmass is the home of a little over 14% of the human population on the planet.
The African continent accounts for less than 3% of the world’s GDP. Those countries that make the greatest contribution to this number are either Muslim, have a significant number of Whites, or in the case of Nigeria have oil or a similarly-valuable resource… That’s exploited by non-Africans.
The philosophical gap between Libertarianism and Fascism is surprisingly thin, given that they are essentially diametrically opposed ideologies. What the split truly comes down to is not so much a matter of whether or not Caucasians can handle living in a minarchist state without devolving into tribal-warfare, but whether or not we can do it without inviting everyone else in and committing cultural suicide. White people have an inexplicably vehement desire to raise the living standards of savages to the Caucasian level of affluence, even to our own detriment. Some even build entire academic careers on the development and expansion of complex moral theories that not only justify such altruistic behavior, but demand it.
Yes, yes, everyone recognizes this is a blatant, brutishly-insulting argument against libertarianism. Hell, even *I* show you silver-hoarding freakos more respect than this article.

Michael Lind is both a pedigreed author and well-connected member of the Cathedral; guest lecturer for Harvard Law, the works.

This article is a sub-par effort by even Salon’s Vaisya standards… Salon may not be The New York Times or The Atlantic, but neither is it Cracked.com.
What I’m getting at is that in a culture driven by subliminal messaging and viral social marketing, when something is *this* obvious it shouldn’t anger you, it should alarm you.
So, if this article isn’t meant to be a valid intellectual debunking of libertarianism (and it’s NOT), then what is the purpose?
“There are a lot of smart people out there (that justify their success thus:) ‘It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.’ Let me tell you something: There are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.” –President Barack Obama, July 13th 2012
Observation: In our day and age, it isn’t necessary to weave a coherent narrative or construct a logical system of belief. In fact, all one needs to do is simply spew specific words/phrases and create appealing sound bites; let the vulgar rabble fill in the blanks and vote. Continue reading →
