    Being upset that Ron Paul isn’t quite AnCap is one thing; distorting his position to point it out is another.

    Ron Paul … said … he couldn’t trust private, competing, security agencies to provide security for people.” -Bad Quaker host

    I am much closer to anarcho-capitalism than when I [first went to Congress]; so I’ve always gone in that direction. … [But] I haven’t gotten to the point where all problems can be solved without any government whatsoever. I think competing police forces could become a problem.” -Ron Paul (The Tom Woods Show, 10/29/13)

    Just in case you need it spelled out: ["could become a problem"] and ["couldn't trust them to provide security"] are not synonymous. Far from it, in fact.

      Dan,
      I’m sorry your hero worship blinds your perception.
      Please feel free to continue loving your Great Man. I’m not here to break your idol. I’m just here to point out that he is naked in his statism. This was hard for me to accept, back in 2008. But my dedication to the truth required that I face facts. I didn’t like it. I voted for Ron in 1988. Who did you vote for in 1988?
      You see, I didn’t enjoy facing my idolatry. It hurt. I hope it’s easier for you.

        I’ll take your ad hominem as a forfeit in the wake of my apparently irrefutable exposition of your other fallacy. Good job, man. *smh*

        • Bad Quaker says:

          Dan, you didn’t answer my question. Who did you vote for in 1988?
          I said you were blinded by your embrace of a Great Man. That’s not ad hominem (a personal attack), although I assumed you would take it as such. Have you studied the Great Man argument and have you read Herbert Spencer’s take on the topic?
          Ron Paul defenders display the classic attributes of the Great Man Theory, as you do here.
          How long have you been a fan of Ron Paul? Or will you dodge that question as well?

  2. Dan A. says:

    It’s unfortunate that Anthony Buehler would lend such credibility to the Stanford prison experiment. It is a favorite “study” among social engineers and other armchair-totalitarians who reference such “studies” to further their arguments for increased measures of statism — e.g., police statism (ironically).

    • Bad Quaker says:

      Wow Dan, way to miss the point.
      I suggest you check out my friend Davi Barker and his work on the topic.
      You’re enthusiastic, and that’s good to a point. But at some stage you need to go beyond that and focus on knowledge and wisdom.

      • Dan A. says:

        Au contraire: Your “knowledge and wisdom” snipe misses the point. Such studies are premised on the notion that “people” can be, or should be, conditioned one way or another by some authority to which the targeted individuals (of said “people”) didn’t explicitly lend authority or consent. Psychiatry and other social-engineering disciplines (“knowledge and wisdom”?) are tools of the State, at best. But by all means, do feel welcome to backhand my shadow once more. ( ;

        • Bad Quaker says:

          Again, Dan, you miss the original point and assume both Antonio and I are taking a position we didn’t take. You make this mistake simply because you lack the background of knowledge that has been covered on this topic by Davi Barker. I could waste my time here schooling you along, but what’s the point? You only came here for a fight to begin with. Why should I feed your appetite?

          Ben
