    It's About The Language Not The Concepts, So Clearly

    i maintain my theory that the propaganda these days is language based rather then content based and our opposition does not even understand the concepts they oppose and therefore I submit that agitprop should craft new language. I have done one such silver tongued thing and...

    government involvement, only in a different way. With a strictly capitalist system, without any socialist attributes, the Government works solely in the interest in protecting the property of the property owners. So essentially, the Government is still working for someones...

    Anacho-Capitalist Are Not True Anarchist And This Is A Descriptive Post As To Why Not A No True Scotsman
