    I have a bottle of Pink Moscato with me and I am about to try and pick up women online.

    I will be referring them to this thread to seal the deal.

    Socialism without capitalism will turn into communism. Capitalism without socialism will turn into fascism.

    Yeah, actual libertarian socialism is... distinctive. I suspect I'm the closest one to it (other than you ) and I'm not particularly close.

    At first blush you could easily mistake it for a form of ancap, but its view of property rights, ownership, and value-creation is, well, Marxist, in the orthodox sense.
