Minuteman at the Door of Thought By Roderick on June 21, 2009 6 Apparently Vin Suprynowicz is one of these guys who deletes comments from his blog as soon as he realises hes losing the argument. But you can read the unexpurgated version of his debate with Charles over immigration rights here. Ethics, Left-Libertarian, No Borders
The column at that link told me enough about the individual in question 8 years ago.
Yup, that is a pretty revolting piece.
It’s hard for me to get too worked up about immigration debates between real libertarians, because the libertarian position is obvious and well-known. But is Vin here a real libertarian? Notice he brought up a hypothetical “Libertarian state” which is run as a democracy. Screw democracy, Vin.
He also mentioned something about some law being “constitutional.” Hey, screw that, too, Vin.
It’s sad. Vin was a great libertarian voice – when a Democrat sock-puppet played the President.
And as happened with many self-professed libertarians, 9/11 seemed to madden him and cause him to forsake his principles in favor of an iron-fisted government.
Why anybody ever believes that a government can brutalize and slaughter foreigners, and in the long run treat its own subjects any differently, bewilders me.
You know what I get real sick of reading about in Vin’s work? All this “we” crap. Just who the frack is “we,” anyway? I know no one asked me if I wanted any part of this entity he refers to as “we.” Collectivist much, Mr. Suprynowicz?
Be charitable: maybe he has lice. Or a tapeworm.
