Dont hey interfere with free people to employ and be employed? Not libertarian would approve.


Not in the least. No more than a union interferes with an employer's rights.

So again for you: Workers have a right to belong to a uniion of their choice and that union shall demand equal rights as the employer on behalf of it's members. IN none of that is there any violation of libertarian principle. In fact, it upholds libertarian principles.

It follows that an employer must have the right to exclude you or me or anyone he chooses from his work force.

And it follows that a union duly authorized to represent the workers should have the right to exclude any person from becoming a member or continuing to be a member if said member fails to pay his union dues. (Just cause considered)

But libertarians can't seem to understand that and so that is where the libertarian fails to uphold it's own principles. I suggest that libertarianism can never succeed in a democracy unless it can adhere to basic democratic principles.

It's simply the case here on your board that libertarians want to possess dictatorial rights. I'm here to help get that straightened out.

Your presense on this board is valued. Why not let us hear from you much more often? For instance, if you don't agree with me than take your best shot at refuting what I've said.

The Moderator has almost certainly noted that other libertarians like the Moderator want to rule over everyone and everything.

How will you straighten that out?


It's not my problem, but I'm insatiably curious...
