I loathe government oppression, even when it benefits the people. I abhor taxing sugar to stop people having sugary drinks (especially when it's universal, affecting all having it even if they aren't obese or whatever). I abhor the government snooping in on private Internet conversations, controlling us via the media, censoring us beyond the severely graphic and/or threatening, and thinking it has a fucking damn right in hell to TELL US WHAT OUR RIGHTS ARE?!
Yet, I do not at all agree with Ron Paul types on anything other than an innate 'chaotic gene' I call it. You're definitely born with or without it, I am certain of it. You are born a rebel, never ever raised or forced to become one. You are born a motherfucking rascal or you're not. I am a freedom lover by nature. I understand that anarchy becomes tyranny-by-the-strongest in no time at all, instead I seek a version of Progressive agenda that ties Social Democracy in with Libertarian core values.
They are not contradictory at all. Nothing at all about Social Democracy requires us to censor each other or force affirmative action. If we focused so much more on equal opportunity instead of equal output we would be making things fair. To me, it's really simple; if a race, gender, creed, whatever else group, is better at something than others but despite this a race, gender, creed etc is being hired disproportionately in the face of what the statistics would imply based on potential in the pool of who is being hired, THEN you as a people, a nation of private investigators journalists who may ask for government assistance in the investigation but isn't dictated by them, should expose it and enforce affirmative action via boycotting.
The people are the motherfucking power, NOT THE PEOPLE 'IN POWER' GIVEN TO THEM BY THE PEOPLE. That is not a right-wing Libertarian concept, it is a concept of any rebel, leftist or not.
