our overall view of what libertarianism is seems to draw no lines at all
between libertarianism and anything else. I'm wondering who isn't a
libertarian by your lights? Kim Jong-un?
This will permanently end any discussion on any subject with you. I have
objected to your boorishness from the very first and you have not stopped
it. I don't know where you learned your manners or your debating skills,
but you need to amend them in some way so as to have a decent discussion
with me. I regard this as very unlikely.
