  •  I am not so sure about that (0+ / 0-)

    And to be clear I'm talking about being a 'civil libertarian' as opposed to 'Randian libertarian'. Not only am I unconvinced there's a difference but I am not sure any such difference even applies to GG.

    •  Seriously? You don't think there's a difference (4+ / 0-)

      or you don't understand the difference, which is HUGE?

      I just gave you a HUGE example. Or do you not think that voting rights matter?

      And if you don't think there's a difference, then why did you make a distinction between the two. That's like saying that I'm talking and six, not have a dozen.

      Huh?

      Some people are not so sure about global warming, evolution and Obama's birthplace. Doesn't mean they know what the hell they're talking about.

      Make a coherent point and maybe I'll be able to take it seriously. This is a reality, not faith-based site. No one cares what people "believe" here. They can about what they can back up with facts and logic.

      •  I think that if there is a difference (0+ / 0-)

        it's razor thin and very very limited.

        That said personally speaking there's way too many similarities between what Greenwald has said and written and Randian philosophy for me. Who knows? Maybe that's not the case anymore and his views have changed. The problem is that Greenwald isn't very good at admitting that he was wrong in the first place (see white washing his position on Iraq II for starters) as such I have a hard time trusting the man in the slightest.

        You don't have to like my opinion kovie but it's just as valid as yours though it's funny you talk about not being a 'faith based site' when we're talking about Greenwald and his um supporters.
