So you have learned something after all.

Are you opposed to saying "free market", which is the more common term for voluntarism?


I don't care how you choose to describe what you're describing. I will try to understand you and reply to what you meant, not some dickhead interpretation of what you literally said by only the definitions I want to use.

I'm not a definitionalist. I want to discuss ideas and concepts, not definitions. I will use the language we have as best I can but it isn't perfect, and I rely on the listener to want to build the last 5% or so of that bridge, not burn it.
  

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

If you're actually interested in communicating your ideas, you should be very careful to use words that have commonly understood meanings in ways that they can be understood.

I'm going to start "building the last 5%" of all of your statements in the way that I understand them... Come to think of it, I've often done that in the past, and you don't seem to like it.

"Voluntarism" for instance... I understand you to mean altruistic actions taken to further some unspecified "common good", for instance, volunteering to be an activist who protests free speech...

This fits quite well with your previous assertions that shouting down speakers is the "free market" at work.
  

"Free hate speech"
