“Libertarianism” was a project of the corporate lobby world, launched as a big business “ideology” in 1946 by The US Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers. The FEE’s board included the future founder of the John Birch Society, Robert Welch; the most powerful figure in the Mormon church at that time, J Reuben Clark, a frothing racist and anti-Semite after whom BYU named its law school; and United Fruit president Herb Cornuelle.
The purpose of the FEE — and libertarianism, as it was originally created — was to supplement big business lobbying with a pseudo-intellectual, pseudo-economics rationale to back up its policy and legislative attacks on labor and government regulations.
My girlfriend was casually, but viciously sexist against men. It pissed me off and I let her know about it.
She stopped talking and went to bed.
I can’t change who I am, I guess. The last one used to complain that I would lecture her about shit.. Which is absolutely true, I admit. I do lecture. I just feel that one of us should think about things before they come out of our mouths.
Tonight’s argument brought to you by… “Men don’t have to think about how many babies they have. They can just keep having babies into their old age.”
PS - I know at some point I asked her if she thought all men were whores…
