This is why people think MG Siegler is a douche. He actually thinks his tech blogging matters. This guy is so delusional and fucking stupid. He talks like being a tech blogger is a noble profession with honor and consequences.

EARTH TO M.G. YOU WERE GOOD AT KISSING MIKE ARRINGTON"S ASS. That's what you do. That is your job and you were good at it. You are a linkbaiting fool and what you know about tech I could fit in a thimble.

Seriously read this and try not to tell me this guy is not a class A douche.

I swear you people are fucking crazy. Also using Al Davis? Really. Blogging isn't a sport you pussy, and if it was, you are nothing more than a cheerleader.

Germany lacked 'good' people ??? Maybe World War 1 and the starvation blockade and the hyperinflation and the enforcement of war reparations and the military occupation and dismemberment of the country had something to do with it ? Maybe the bad people rose to the top and the good people couldn't stop them ? It doesn't matter how much you praise children for 1-to-1 kindness if they have no hope for the future. When people have no hope for a better tomorrow they will turn evil.

Also just because the people are 'good' doesn't mean the state will be good. The scale that the state operates at perverts logic and goodness.

What about geoists versus royalists ? It seems to me that the biggest divide in libertarians is between those that acknowledge the existence of a land problem and those that don't believe it exists.

The book that convinced me that American (Mises-Rothbard) Austrians were missing a very large part of the economic picture was this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Power-Land-Fred-Harrison/dp/0856830674/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390780231&sr=8-1

When I read the chapter on the 17 and 3/4 year land price / construction / mortgage credit cycle I was blown away. The book was written in 1983 but predicted the peak of the uk 80s and 2000s property bubbles down to the month. Based on 400 years of data the cycle jumped out. Something Austrians say is impossible.

Are you from the UK?  Your question strongly suggests you are because neither "geoists" (georgists)  and royalists are positions taken by US libertarians.  The idea that there should be a free market in everything but land which should be collectively owned was always vastly more appealing in the UK than in the US probably thanks to the Feudal landholding oligopoly in the UK.  Also royalism, though not uncommon among UK libertarians is extremely rare among US libertarians.  Even arguments by thinkers like Hoppe that compare monarchy favorably to democracy do not explicitly endorse monarchy.  Most Americans, including and especially libertarians have a visceral reaction against the concept of royalty and very few hold georgist views.  Since very few hold either view I don't think it could properly be called a schism, at the very least in the US.

You seem to be operating from the premise that democracy can scale to any size. Thus as long as organised groups are muzzled then you have representative democracy ? But this isn't true, democracy does not scale. It is the scale of democracy that destroys representation and makes individual votes count for nothing. Greenwald is correct to say that just because you don't like a specific outcome you should not ban free speech. The problem is not money spent on political speech but that the US is one country when it should be 100 or 1000 countries if it is to be democratic.
