In this episode I read and discus a post over at Amerika.org.
Brett uses some terms without adequately defining them. That is annoying and adds a level of confusion in my attempt to understand his perspective.
Otherwise there isn’t much here I can disagree with.
Ultimately it all arrives at the definition of individual.
There are two kinds of individuals.
Interdependent Individual – a person who is independent within interdependency. A person who has a tribe and contributes to that tribe.
Isolated Individual – a person who is dependent upon the State for all his needs and has no tribe other than democracy.
What are libertarians? Libertarians (sometimes called “lolberts”) are classical liberals: people who believe that everyone is competent, and therefore that what the market chooses will be the best solution. They tend to be rugged individualists who want as few rules as possible regulating their conduct, including use of drugs and gun ownership.
Naturally, realists find this kind of comical. What use is liberty, when most of the people on your planet will behave simply like selfish fools? We are back to the problem with utilitarianism and democracy, which is that there is no wisdom of crowds; the crowd is a plague of locusts who will devour everything, give nothing back, and leave a ruin which cannot regenerate.
Utilitarianism, after all, sounds good on paper. You do what brings happiness to the most. Well, how do you find out what makes them happy? Simple: you ask them. But then… but then we are into the realm of what humans think, not what they do, and this is an inherently superficial realm because we barely know ourselves.
The same is true of democracy. People vote in self-interest. How the heck do they know? They guess, or “estimate,” if we are being polite, but most of these people run out of money a week before the next paycheck. And they are supposed to understand financial policy, foreign affairs, domestic tranquility, human genetics and long-term survival?
