If Vegetarians were Libertarians

If vegetarians were libertarians, they would all eat meat, provided they wanted to in the slightest.

Even if they believed animals had rights, they didn't kill those animals. They didn't commit aggression. Someone else did it. That person is responsible.

But hey, being on welfare isn't aggression, even though that money is stolen and no one will give a consensus about whether receiving stolen property is aggression.

Lobbying and bribing the government for regulations that are certainly aggression? Well, you're blameless. You didn't commit the aggression yourself.

I can't even get a clear answer on whether hiring a hit man is aggression, and even if the answer was yes, you wouldn't dare extend that to lobbyists, who use the government as a hit man to enforce the aggressive and restrictive policies they want enforced.

It's almost like only libertarians think that knowingly and intentionally buying aggression or its results is a completely innocent act.

Otherwise vegetarians would take the same moral high ground they do now, and eat meat anyway, because they didn't personally slaughter those animals.
  

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

I've only known two libertarian vegetarians in my whole life. (Disclaimer: I've probably known less than a dozen vegetarians of any political persuasion... And they all gave it up.)

Say, is this another one of your Ridiculous Fantastical Fantasy Stories? (RFFS, pronounced "reefers").

yep it's another "reefer" all right. Edit: One of your best efforts! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

And you wonder why I only read your intro and conclusion.

Why would I read the crap in between?

As yamcha mentioned, I can't know how long I'll live. I know there is at least one Prophecy that says that...

Why do you keep listening to it?

Do you find the jerkwad to be intellectually stimulating, like I do?

No, I don't  I only read the first 2 lines.  He is basically saying Libertarians bend the law to their own needs blah blah blah.  He is not intellectual at all to me.  He is like the guy in the Beatles song - Nowhere Man.

My IQ is between 68 and 71 so that makes him an infantile retard.

Huh.

People with IQs as low as yours are usually dumb as stumps and don't understand words like "infantile retard". Cheesy

Lol see what happens you make a good point and they are like wow how retarded. They can't find one thing wrong with it lol.

If you are a vegetarian and think animals should not be murdered you can't eat meat because buying the killing is just like the killing.


IDK why you care what they say so much they are just dumb can't defend they're BS.
