I have encountered these two debate winning statements – there were more, but I omit them today – while chatting with two different and intelligent people:

1. “It is impossible to have an argument with libertarians – they believe in their thing… and don’t listen to anything else.”

I assume “the thing” refers to Non Aggression Principle, but I haven’t asked for a very apparent reason.

2. “If a person pays and legally owns something [100 acres of land] he/she can’t live there the way they want and democratic society has the right on it.”

Apparently, Magna Carta Law and the last 800+ years of legal precedents – not to mention 4th and 5th Amendments to US Constitution – are nothing in the view of progressive proponents of democratic principles.

May be this is just a thing with those pesky libertarians after all?
