DFW_Sailor made a sweeping generalization when he said "In my mind a true libertarian has no compulsion to do anything they do not want to at all."Pretty much the position I got to.
I probably agree with Tom on the majority of these issues but dealing with the tendentious bullshit isn't worth the bother.
Tom is also libertarianish. And, as such, said "here's something that I believe it. Do you believe in it?" DFW then tried again to deflect to justify his particular view of what a "Pure Libertarian" really is, as opposed to arguing with an actual libertarian point of view. He got his pet rage pinata out and, in typical PA fashion, flailed away. To which, Tom tried to bring him back again "This is what I, and some other Libertarians, believe in - Do you agree or disagree with THIS POINT?".
Tom is only tedious because people won't back off their strawmen. Its easier to argue with 'those people' than an actual position. PA doesn't have to be a binary world unless we want it to be that way.
