Funding aggression is aggression.


Does funding prostitution count as prostitution?

Are we all guilty of aggression because we fund the government's wars we would like to stay the Hell out of and would never pay for if anyone gave us a choice?

George Soros doesn't fund aggression anyway. He funds what he likes and aggression results. (Which means big profits for him.) Not his problem.

If I pay a prostitute for your pleasure, I've rented a prostitute. (Is that what you meant by "funding prostitution"?)

If you take my money and pay the prostitute yourself, or if you use money I've given you as a gift with no knowledge of what use you will make of the money, you have rented a prostitute.

George Soros funds the organizations he funds with full knowledge of the harm being done by those organizations.

No one is guilty of aggression because they pay taxes that are used to fund wars. The people who are guilty of aggression are the people who start wars.

And if the prostitute uses that money to start a war, you're not guilty of aggression.

Even if you know the prostitute is a war-driven psychopath.

You have absolutely no obligation to refrain from purchasing services based on what your money will be used for.

Once you part with it, it is no longer your money. Whatever the prostitute does with it is her business.

I'll say it again: Don't hit, don't steal.

George Soros did neither.

I believe George Soros should be praised by every libertarian. He's causing war, chaos, and death on a mass scale, all while making a profit and not engaging in the least little bit of aggression himself.
Soros does have an angelic look about him doesn't he?

Say, Red, is an assumption anything like a suggestion?

Could I get on someone's shit-list for accepting the lizards assumption?

If you pay for chaos and war and destruction, and that's exactly what you get, everybody should laud you as a hero of liberty?

Absolutely, unless you aggress.

Don't hit, don't steal.

Follow that and you respect the rights of others. Yes, that should be lauded, especially considering how many people don't.

I wouldn't say that's true of his looks but his actions are certainly angelic. He respects rights absolutely, to the degree required by the NAP.

Statists think that's not enough. Statists think there should be regulations against things that do not violate the NAP. Do you agree?
