Anyone know some funny libertarian or anarchist jokes? Preferably witty one-liners?

Libertarians: Diligently plotting to take over the world to leave everyone alone.

Bitcoin: Change we can believe in.

"Congress shall make no law..." Okay, we can stop there.

I'm from the government and I'm here to help.

P.S. No one goes in the "Funny" forum.

That's actually epically awesome.

Not libertarian jokes, but funny nevertheless: (not my jokes, btw)

Q: What's the difference between Obama's cabinet and a penitentiary?
A: One is filled with tax evaders, blackmailers and threats to
society. The other is for housing prisoners. Letterman

Q: What was the most positive result of the "Cash for clunkers"
program?
A: It took 95% of the Obama bumper stickers off the road. Letterman

A few years ago, a lawyer, a doctor and a politician all applied to become CIA agents. They passed all tests but the final one. This is what happened next:

All three are in a waiting room ready for their final test. First, the lawyer is given a gun and told to go into the room and execute the person sitting in the chair. The lawyer goes into the room, and sees a man blindfolded in a chair. He leaves the room saying he could not shoot him. The lawyer is told he failed the test and can not become a CIA agent.

Next the doctor is given a gun and is told to execute the person in the room. The doctor goes into the room, sees the man sitting in the chair blindfolded. He leaves the room saying he could not shoot the man. The doctor is told he failed the test and can not become a CIA agent.

Finally the politician is given a gun and is told to execute the person in the room. The politician goes into the room and the CIA people outside the room hear the "click" of a gun hammer on an unloaded gun. After this they hear a lot of hollering, and struggling. Finally the politician comes out and says, "someone gave me an unloaded gun so I had to choke him to death."

Q: How many Soviet Socialists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None, they use candles.

A libertarian said in conversation: "Three of my legislators have died successively while in office."
"Really, that's unusual. how did the first one die?" his friend said.
He ate poisonous mushrooms.
And how did the second one die?
He ate poisonous mushrooms.
And the third?
He died from a bashed in skull.
How did that happen?
He wouldn"t eat the poisonous mushrooms.

This is my favorite:

Q: How many Libertarians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None. The invisible hand of the market will take care of it. What are you, a socialist?

Sure.

What aspects do you have in mind? Better yet, what would you say is the most convincing argument for Statism/against anarchism?

The semblance of my ideology and that of an anarchist appears synonymous, but there are vital differences.

Institutional monopoly?

Monopoly on retaliatory violence, I think. Which makes no sense.
1. People should still have the right to defend themselves.
2. How do you voluntarily fund a government when private companies do a better job.
3. If the government functions and is funded like a business, why call it a government?

Anarchism would dissolve into Statism. Your ideology is an ephemeral joke that would be very unfunny to have any part in.

He's a Nozickian "night-watchman" libertarian, not an anarchist. Though I doubt he's too versed in Nozick's "natural State formation" argument. I would love to debate that interesting justification of minarchism. To this day it's probs the closest thing I've come to in analytic political philosophy that could legitimize (as opposed to justify by some utilitarian pleasure calculus or something) the State.

Wait... really? In terms of political philosophy, what have you read -other than Nozick (and I think you've read Rawls too)?

Anarchism would dissolve into Statism.

Pretty sure I could win that just by the extreme epistemic limitations you just placed on yerself lol. I'll do it. Challenge me broz.

It's actually interesting that you phrase it that way.

Wait... really? In terms of political philosophy, what have you read -other than Nozick (and I think you've read Rawls too)?

I've looked through Rawlsian arguments before but never saw anything worthwhile. The whole equivocation of "rational" choice with "probability of material content" grinds my gears for a multiplicity of reasons. Then there's the split between what can be justified analytically and what is justified (in terms of actually existent States). Habermas was interesting (in his discourse ethics methodology) but he really only analyzed (from what I've read) the internal organization of delegatory institutions, not their ultimate grounding (whether in coercion, voluntarism, or something in between). I can get behind democratic (deliberative) organization of some delegatory institutions, for instance worker-managed syndicates and all that. But that's neither here nor there in the Statism/anarchism debate.

Besides those three what else really is there? I suppose Locke, Rousseau, and Hobbes but I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to take them seriously ;)

So apparently anarchists are so sensitive about their own beliefs, that they can't even take jokes about them? Or am I just being a victim of Poe's law?

My sides have left the building~

That made my day.

I really am sorry if it's offensive, but I thought it was hilarious.

I'm offended that you would think that would be offensive.

I'm apathetically sipping a sparkling water, contemplating why I'm so apathetic.

It must be quite the spectacle.

Now I'm contemplating why I'm contemplating why I'm so apathetic. But after that level of metacontemplation, I'm still decidedly apathetic to the entire ordeal. The beginning is the end is the beginning is the end... all while enjoying the refreshment of a sparkling water.

That makes no sense. The invisible hand is used to describe the phenomenon where by serving their own interests, individuals inadvertently serve the interests of society.
If it is dark, it is in their interest to screw in a new light bulb. By doing so they serve others who need the light. Therefore the correct answer would be one, due to the invisible hand.
