      Because it is proof that libertarianism is scrotebrained and things like regulation and building codes are important and benficial

        Libertarianism isn’t opposed to regulation and building codes, it’s opposed to state regulation and building codes which are necessarily worse and predicated on force

          Capitalism is predicated on force. Property can’t exist without the state, and the capitalist mode of production can’t exist without coercion of the working class.
          At least communists are honest about wanting to kill you instead of hiding it behind gay gnomish pilpul cope like lolbergs and their idol Alisa Rosenbaum.

        yeah sorry sis I didn’t give you a chance to explain what authority you think should be in charge of how your house’s electrical system is wired, how you plan to enforce that authority’s rules, and how you play to pay for a system that enforces it
        Please share your libertarian wisdom with me while I look up your big list that specifies ‘necessary’ governmental powers from ‘unnecessary’ ones I can’t seem to find it

          Exactly how is that different from current day where governments are literally just paid to look the other way? At least in this freaking libertarian dystopia there’s no government you have to pay to get nothing in return.

          Also i don’t understand why you can conceive corporations being voluntary associations existing in this system but not voluntary associations for the clients.

            My house was built by a corporation and is up to code and protects me in dozens of ways because the government enforces building codes using my money you lose

                  So what you’re saying is, you’re okay with paying in to enforcement of building codes because it directly benefits you to do so?
                  Okay what about paying in to programs that promote diversity? How about paying for gibs for ‘refugees’?

                        No, I can win. You don’t like something that the government is doing? Great, take it up with them using the tools available to you like any other citizen. No neckbeard-flavored inch-deep political philosophy required. Next question? Maybe something that is related to the other shit in this thread for once?

                        The premise of your question is false, so according to the rules of logic answering it can only produce further falsehood. Instead, I’m going to stay on top.

                    People who think their money should pay for gibs have a disease. It wants to leave their body but you can’t rationally explain why they should believe differently.

                    Them changing their mind will happen from interactions with actual people and it will be like taking a big mental shit for them.

                    I’m living off gibs myself, I’m not paying for shit. And if I was better off I’d like to think I still would have some sympathy for the less fortunate, who merit state support; I’m far more opposed to the government programs which *create* refugees than the ones which pay them stipends.

            And then you will get ten million reddit internet points and it will finally become clear to you where you belong, the way it’s clear to me.
