I don't really know much about his political positions other than the fact that he made a big stand against compulsory acquisition a few years back. I support him on that but given the party he's in I probably don't agree with him on all that much else.What are your thoughts on Rahul Gandhi?
Most non-anarchist libertarians seek to address this problem in four ways.
The role of the state being limited is the way to go, yeah.. (y)Most non-anarchist libertarians seek to address this problem in four ways.
1. Constitutionally limit the role of the state to few functions so the worst excesses are illegal.
2. Encourage people to use their vote to elect less authoritarian candidates.
3. Support secession movements to allow greater variation and competition in laws, satisfying more preferences and increasing the chances of one of them being libertarianish.
4. In conjunction with #3, support more liberal immigration laws so people have greater choice in what sort of society they live in.
And that's pretty much my position.
Anarchist libertarians argue this has all been tried and failed before though and the only way to actually limit the state is to destroy it. They may have a point, but to me things libertarians attempt to get the state to stop doing -- theft, murder, imprisonment -- would probably exist in even greater amounts on a private level without the existence of the state at all. Some sort of state is probably necessary, at least in the medium term, and democracy is the least bad way we've come up with to operate one. The key to me is in limiting the power of democracy to the areas it's really required to maximise freedom.
As opposed to all those other systems which give some people powers who exploit it as they feel fit...
Most have been done legally according to norms set by the various countires.
There are just too many Indians. I don't like it either.
Too goodIt's too annoying. Even when I go abroad, find Indians every where. Thankfully I have interest of travelling rather than standing beside a tourist spot and clicking a photo. Usually the definition of going to a place essentially for most of them is to go to a place, visit 3 tourist spots for 10 minutes each, take a photo and post it on Facebook.
