Laissez Faireholm Regional Message Board
Honestly, that's not what the people you were debating were "upset" about.
It is. What else was it? Are you even in the thread?
Well for a start I don't think "upset" is a good word for it; people objected to your point of view, sure. Second, the way you phrased your message above makes it sound as though you think you've baffled them with the brilliance and truth of your posts, which isn't actually the case I'm afraid. Nobody is angry (maybe leaving wind-up merchants like Mavorpen aside, because some people just have a problem no matter what) because they've come to a sudden realisation - most people that are objecting are doing so because they disagree with your posts, for a number of reasons. Thirdly, I have read the entire thread but haven't commented. Trots has basically summed up my opinions, but he's a far better writer than me.
If I've read you incorrectly and you're not as arrogant as I think you came across here, then I apologise.
Of course it was hyperbolic. I'm no fan of emoticons, so Poe's law would have to apply here. I think that's the correct law, at least. That's the smiley one, right?
4years and Trotskylvania; 4years misunderstood what "self-ownership" is and Trotskylvania assumed that slavery is acceptable as a result, which is a sentiment I have since retracted in favour of an exception that I have since justified. He has yet to come back. Conscentia agreed with me that they own themselves, and Zottistan is getting there. The rest feel as if "God" owns them, and the final quasi-third believe that they own themselves. 4years and Trot are in a considerable minority.
I'm still waiting on Trot to answer my post, so you're very welcome to post your beliefs in the thread meanwhile.
It's very interesting how differently two people can see and read the same thread.
I won't be dropping in, thanks, it feels like I'd just be repeating what has already been said. Besides, most debates on NS feel like the participants are talking past one another, with more concern for their ego than the subject being discussed.
Needless to say we disagree on essentially every basic principle you can think of, but that doesn't stop us being friends! ;)
If ownership is the claim of non reasoning matter by a reasoning mind, then slavery is a fundamental error (to put the matter politely) - as another mind can not claim (occupy) the body, when there is already a mind (a human person - an "I") already there.
You know who's a fan of emoticons?
our pop. is dipping
Quite correct, thank you.
