Ideally, everybody in the world would be a libertarian, but I think you are certainly wrong that all corporations and private colleges and universities are filled with/run by leftist ideologues.

Anyway, if people want to use their own money to do biased research, there is really no stopping them short of using authoritarian tactics.


That is not true, read the following articles about the leftism of colleges:

Especially this article:

http://www.returnofkings.com/152265/5-ways-modern-colleges-have-become-left-wing...

But also make sure to read these articles:

http://www.returnofkings.com/112057/another-college-adds-course-on-toxic-masculi...

And also these articles about the leftism of the education system in general:

http://www.returnofkings.com/187983/why-american-education-sucks
http://www.returnofkings.com/71875/my-education-was-a-complete-waste-of-time

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01/21/indian-education-minister-dismisses-t...

Additionally, this article is about the leftism of corporations:

You got to stop whining and acting like a defenseless wimp.  Stop being a spectator in life and start acting.  You sound like a smart loser with no money and diminished expectations when it comes to women.  Stand up and change that!

Look at me dude, I say what I want and I am not scared of being silenced here.  If I ever do get banned then I don't care, I just go on with my life the same.  By the way, if I do get banned it will not be because of Jeff.  Jeff doesn't agree with me but he does respect me.  If you would just stop acting like such a pussy you could get some respect too.


This is most likely because you are Jeff. Dissident called Jeff shit-for-brains a few times when Jeff tried to pull out the insult wins, but Dissident got no respect for standing firm in his beliefs. He got reported until something finally stuck. Libertarians will never choose discourse and engagement over silencing views they find repugnant. They just use private property rights to justify it.

If I'm getting silenced I really don't care whether it's the government doing it or not.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

https://www.rooshv.com/the-goal-of-corporations-is-not-to-make-money


From the article:
Quote:
I came to the conclusion that corporations had to be about human control when examining how most companies of the Fortune 500 go against basic principles of profitability and business sense to virtue signal for marginal audiences like homosexuals and transvestites that comprise only a tiny part of their business. Gilette published propaganda against their own male customers. Athletic company Nike hired a spokesperson (Colin Kaepernick) who is more known as a race complainer than an athlete. Family-friendly retail chain Target changed its policy to allow tranny men to use female bathrooms. Coffee company Starbucks is bludgeoning its mostly white customers with Black Lives Matters wokeness. The National Football League puts homosexual cheerleaders on the same field that its gladiator athletes compete on. Banks and financial service firms like Chase and Paypal shut down customers because of their personal ideas.


I don't think the writer of this article understands the free market if he thinks these are not profitable practices.

These businesses are probably getting money from special interest groups to do these things. If it wasn't enough to make up for the business they lose (and then some) they wouldn't do these things.

That's aside from the fact that Starbucks customers come for the moral superiority and not the terrible coffee in the first place.

so what does it take to be your owner? There's a person simply need to declare that they own you and that's it? Done?

Let's start with the premise that I have no rights. That's absolutely true. That's a first premise.

Can I tell you I own your cat (and thus actually own it) from halfway across the globe?

Well, I'll be back stateside soon.  I don't own pets anymore. I had a few dogs and cats and it is just too hurtful to see them go.

Look at this beauty that I got from the shelter at 5 weeks old.  You ever seen a girl pose like that?

I'm aware of the fact that "progressives" have been infiltrating and taking over colleges and universities for my entire lifetime, but they aren't in control of all colleges.

Stopping government subsidies for research would mean that universities would have to either pay for their own research, or seek corporate grants, and businesses just aren't that interested in paying for phony research and fake results.

That makes phony research of value only to the government, and they'll no doubt keep forcing taxpayers to fund the research they do, even though there is no authorization for them to do that.

Yes, I'm also aware that crony businesses and wanna-be crony businesses are willing to be political whores.

It didn't work well for Gillette...

Free markets allow business owners to do really stupid things and lose money and sometimes go out of business.

Some businesses will do well catering to niche markets, some won't.

Some people will boycott companies because of the company owner's expressed political views, most will continue to buy their products if they are good products for a good price.

yamcha probably won't buy anything from a business run by jews, or nigs, or spics... That's his right, to be an idiot. Grin Grin Grin

The lizard is my sock puppet, but I haven't claimed ownership of it because I actually think it's worthless. Claim it if you want it. Kiss
