"You were an Anarchist; now you`re a what?"
Anarchist means "no rulers". A libertarian socialist is someone who believes in freedom and love, of sharing political and economic power. These two things aren't mutually exclusive. Quite the contrary, they're different ways of saying the same thing.
If you take time out to actually research the things you try to speak about in public, you might learn something:
"Libertarian socialism (sometimes called social anarchism, ..."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_socialism
But you never were one for too much research. Heavy on the opinion, light on the facts. Not much has changed over the years.
"Libertarian Socialist is an oxymoron David."
Freedom and love are not opposites.
"A Libertarian would never advocate wealth redistribution cons, and a Socialist would be furious over any free market capitalist enterprise not owned by a centralized government;including drug dealing."
And you base this opinion on what? Fox news?
Here ... meet some libertarian socialists - their beliefs may surprise you, if you bother to do some basic research about them:
Ricardo Flores Magón
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
"I really hope you delete your comments above about illegal drug sales funding pro marijuana causes;"
Fuck you. We're all proud of what we did. If there's nothing wrong with pot smoking, there's nothing wrong with pot dealing or pot seed dealing, either.
"... whether you realize it or not, you just described a closed loop. Drug money funds activists who blow pot smoke in people`s faces,"
Bullshit. You have no proof of that. You lie every time your fingers hit the keyboards.
"... pass out free marijuana at pot rallies,"
You say that like it's a bad thing. It's a wonderful medicinal herb - less risky than coffee beans. We've passed out a million joints over the years and nobody has ever had a bad experience from them.
"... sell weed to 11 year olds if they sign a promise not to drive under the influence of pot,"
13 year olds. If society has no problem with caffeine sales to teenagers, what's wrong with cannabis sales to teenagers?
"... get kicked out of the NDP party by posting videos of themselves doing drugs and driving......"
You lie again - nobody got kicked out of the NDP. Dana and Kirk chose to step down from running in one election but they're still both in the NDP - Dana even ran for head of the Provincial NDP AFTER he stepped down, and won many friends and a lot of respect.
"Couldn`t you guys try to fuck us just a little more gently?"
Spoken like a true armchair activist - unwilling to lead by example, unable to achieve anything on one's own, your contribution is limited to hypercritical comments.
And by the way, every year we've been activists public opinion is more and more on our side - we're successful, and you're in denial of how good a job we're doing.
"Is it possible that Marc declaring war on the DEA provoked the drug warriors to ratchet up their campaign by targeting his customers?"
Your "activism creates oppression" argument is amusing but nonsensical. Every example of scapegoating provided by history proves that the scapegoats that act up are the only ones that survive. The scapegoats that keep their heads down and show no public dignity or resistance to oppression are the ones that get the gas chambers.
"Piss off the social conservatives and parents of children with drug problems, provoke a backlash like Bill C-10,..."
Bill C-10 isn't a "backlash" - it's the same plan they've been trying to force through since 1992, back when it was called bill C-7 and bill C-8 ... they've been attempting to wipe us out no matter what we do - whether it's in 1992 after 12 years of zero activism, or now that we're getting louder and prouder. The difference between 1992 and today is that at least we have public support now - which means we have a chance of survival.
But of course I've said all this before ... and then what happens is you change the subject, or ignore it, or go away and then try making these same old tired arguments again and again. Sad, pathetic old man.
