Why the hell is it called "socialism" if its so antisocial?

Evolution is a necessary part of society. Every politic is a meme, and memes must be socially accepted to continue. For society to evolve it needs variation, selection, and retention. If you remove selection, and variation, you're society is then stuck, and will fall, just as any forced meme fails.

Seems you're conflating liberalism with Marxism. Funny.

It makes ZERO difference who wins the election. Zero. None. John Adams once famously said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Obama has been fooling people throughout his presidency, that is no shocker. He is so radical that nothing surprises me anymore. Everything he says is a lie, deceptive and self-seeking. How anyone can defend him is a blatant sign of ignorance. Besides his multiple impeachable offenses, his lack of respect for the Constitution is a clear indicator that this man is and has been dangerous to the Republic.

This seems relevant to some attitudes I've seen here. As cool as it sounds to want to sit idly by and wait for the system to eventually tear itself apart (with utopian anarchism to take it's place, with no other people/systems rushing in to fill the power vacuum).

What's more likely to happen is the next Hitler-type will come to power while good people do nothing because they don't want to participate in a system that violates people's freedoms. Consequently, people will be oppressed on greater orders of magnitude, as the government gets worse and worse.
 
'Perfect' is the enemy of 'good'. - Voltaire

Commentary: The meaning of this expression is that, if we give or up or abandon something or refuse even to get it started until it is perfect, even though we may admit that it would be better than what preceded it or whatever the alternative might be, then it is likely that we will get nothing, neither perfect nor better, done.

The writer who will not risk publishing until his works are as good to his own ears as Shakespeare; the patient who refuses life saving treatment because it will leave a hideous scar; the engineer who won't patent his invention until it is fully functional and ready for mass market production; the starving man who refuses a meal because it contains GMO's and wasn't purchased by a Fair Trade consortium; all these and more are examples of making 'perfect' the enemy of 'good'.

Beware of those who make Perfect the enemy of Good and call it 'Revelation' or 'Revolution', for they wrap up their own inaction in a 'Holier Than Thou' facade of ideological purity, or a pretense of 'sticking to their convictions', meanwhile passing up opportunities to make progress, however small and however incomplete, when they present themselves.

Maybe the tyranny is the catalyst. Not advocating. But I'm much more in line with agorism, than 'fixing'. Life is to short.

And if it came to tyranny of the order you are talking, I don't think a nation of this many determined, educated, armed, and good spirited individuals would sit idle. I wouldn't. It only takes 3% or so we are told...

Can't speak for Octavius, but a glance over the Wikipedia on it tells me that it's basically "going Galt" rather than voting Gary Johnson. Fair enough, since the laws defied would be unjust anyways, and even as a minarchist I'm happy to advocate such methods, since that's often what brings attention to injustice in the first place.

That said, it also seems to include a notion that the vote Johnson method is an "anti-concept" despite also being a method of peaceful defiance. Being serious here, a libertarian ran congress would indeed shift policies to our likings. That's entirely correct to anticipate. The difficulty, and the reason why "going Galt" should still be taken seriously, is with reaching that point. Free State Project has proven that it's not impossible to get voices into the political scene, but they're also doing agoristic things given their use of bitcoin and precious metals in the face of regulation. I guess my one question for agoristic thinkers would have to be: why not both? Why not push from every side and drive this with as much power as possible, and instead only "go Galt?"

For those who can see more than inch in front of their faces -- this is a very positive development.

I love the highly propagandic use of language, here in the article. Hilarious. Let me fit myself into the ole evil anti-NNR baby-killing persona, for a second to fit the article -- for effect, of course.

"QUICK! KILL IT WITH FIRE IN ITS CRIB, WHILE IT'S STILL SLEEPING AND IS WEAK AND FEEBLE AND DEFENSELESS! MUAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH!"

The Republican crusade to sabotage federal net neutrality protections took a significant step forward on Thursday when a key House subcommittee approved a bill that could severely limit the Federal Communications Commission’s ability to police the nation’s largest cable and phone companies.

Under the guise of prohibiting the FCC from regulating broadband internet prices, the legislation could ultimately kneecap the FCC’s authority over a variety of potentially abusive industry practices, according to open internet advocates.

The bill, innocuously titled the “No Rate Regulation of Broadband Internet Access Act,” is just the latest effort in a multi-pronged Republican campaign to undermine the FCC’s ability to protect net neutrality, the principle that all content on the internet should be equally accessible.

+Kawlinz +ralph satterfield  My guess is that they started out planning to be wildcat innovators, but when it came down to the crunch of "we can continue to be wildcat innovators or we can knuckle under and make loads of money with fewer legal problems," they took the deal with the devil. Can't say I really blame them, given the position they were in. But I still think they will end up being a memory instead of a going concern within a few years.

I've got a petition up at the White House site. It requires 150 signatures to be publicly displayed there and 100,000 signatures to get an official response. Even if you're an anarchist (as am I), I suspect you might support it.
