About Me:An avid reader and student, very interested in philosophy, morality, economics, and politics.
Beliefs:I believe in anarchism, specifically market anarchism, where rights of property are absolute. I believe in an elitist, authoritarian, hierarchical social structure with clear class distinctions. I believe in Kantian philosophy, especially on ethics. I am a pro-religion atheist, I support [some] religious institutions (especially the Catholic Church) for their social aspects, but I have no belief in the divine. I believe in the Austrian School of Economics. I believe that the government will not be able to be defeated by way of the government, and therefore do not support any political parties (though I cheer for the sufficiently liberty orientated candidates) or voting.
Books:Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals by Immanuel Kant; Democracy: The God That Failed by Hans Hoppe; For a New Liberty by Murray Rothbard; On Doing the Right Thing by Albert Nock; Defending the Undefendable by Walter Block; The Myth of National Defense edited by Hans Hoppe; The Real Lincoln by Thomas DiLorenzo; Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth by Ludwig von Mises; The Ethics of Liberty by Murray Rothbard
Quotes:"Government is essentially the negation of liberty." - Ludwig von Mises
"Conservatives must be antistatist libertarians and, equally important, libertarians must be conservatives."
- Hans-Hermann Hoppe
"They - the advocates of alternative, non-family and kin-centered lifestyles such as, for instance, individual hedonism, parasitism, nature-environment worship, homosexuality, or communism - will have to be physically removed from society, too, if one is to maintain a libertarian order."
-Hoppe

The Real ID Act of 2005 should be repealed

JBlake
Morty

Note: I would prefer to avoid an argument of semantics. It is my hope that my opponent will stick to the issue of the Real ID Act, or a national identification system. Contention 1: The Real ID Act creates a national id card for the United States. Contention 2: A national id system has the potential for misuse. Contention 3: Said system has the potential to be used to violate privacy. Both from the public and private sectors. Contention 4: The system would require a centrally linked da...

Russia has become a threat to United States interests

DaPofoKing
Morty

I would like to prove that the U.S interests are not being threatened by Russia's development over the years.So in this round i feel it is my obligation to prove that Russia is not a threat as of right now. Your obligation i believe is to prove that russia is a direct threat and thus would need to prove CBA(cost benefit analysis) you would need to prove why they are more of a threat to our interests, than a benefit if anything at all....

Minimum wage should be a municipal issue.

Farooq
Morty

Currently, in my country at least, the level of minimum wage is determined by provincial legislatures, and I belive it is similiar in the United States as well. Yet does this really make sense? Provinces, states, and nations can be very large entities, and no one can really argue that West Vancouver or Manhaatten have the the same sort of living expenses as those in the BC interior or Upstate New York? Rather it should be looked at on a more local scale, with living expense of the exact region t...

Banning abortion violates self-ownership.

Morty
wingnut2280

This will be a four round debate. For the purposes of this debate, I would like to ask that my opponent begins with these three assumptions: 1) all persons are legitimate self-owners, 2) life begins at conception, and 3) all persons have the same rights. I would like to start by saying that I believe abortion is a tragedy and is completely immoral in all cases. In spite of this, it should not be prohibited by law. Women, as self-owners, have complete dominion over their bodies and, in...
