What is happening to Hazlehurst is happening to small towns everywhere in rural America. The demise of small farms and the concentration of agriculture into a few big farms took the heart out of farm town economies. All the activity that went with the opoening of the tobacco sales 30 years ago is gone forever. Same with cotton markets. All that money that once went into the hands of a lot of people now is either not there at all or it goes to just a few big farmers.

Same thing is happening to industry in small towns everywhere. Small companies can no longer compete with the giants - many of which have moved their factories to Mexico or Asia where they can impose sweatshop conditions and pay starvation wages.

Before Hazlehurst or any American small town can hope to make a comback its people have to undergo a revolution in their thinking and value system. They have to start voting in their own interest, not in the interest of Libertarian billionaires like the Koch brothers who hijacked the Republican Party, coopted the "moral" issues of the Christian Right, and are using them to restructure the social and economic system in the USA back to where it was 100 years ago.

An anarchist is honest. He just steals what you have that he wants, whacks you over the head, and drags you off into slavery if he is strong enough to do it. But he can't count on the law to help him hold you in slavery because there is no law. In an anarchic society you would have every right to do the same unto him if you were big, tough, and bad enough, or could get enough friends to help you.

Libertarians believe in the rule of law and order, but only insofar as it prevents one person from committing "aggression" meaning physical assault, murder, etc. and protects private property, which is the big thing that Libertarians believe in. Libertarians do not believe in chattel slavery, however. They believe that there should be no regulations or limitations on any kind of business or contract. Libertarians do not believe in slavery, but it is perfectly OK with them if you are forced by desperation to sign a legally binding contract that makes you an indentured servant for life.

If you want to read a scary book read THE ETHICS OF LIBERTY by Murray N. Rothbard. It is the Bible of Libertarian ideology.

Here is a link to an online version of Rothbard's book.

If you don't want to wade through the whole nauseating thing, just read the chapter about children. It should tell you just how crazy Libertarian philosophy really is.

and did you know there was actually an anarchist movement back in the early 1900's (maybe even as big as admitted libertarians today).But they were mostly poor european immigrants.

Yes, I did. After tobacco auction sales passed into history I went to graduate school and got a PhD in History.

The difference between the anarchists of the late-19th and early-20th centuries and today's tiny core of Libertarians was that the anarchists remained a small, violent fringe. They never attracted a lot of followers. Socialists of all stripes, from Democratic and Christian Socialists to the Communists, would have nothing to do with them. Labor unions hated them, because they were oftentimes blamed for what the anarchists did. People who believed in capitalism and free enterprise despised them as a bunch of murderous lunatics as well.

Libertarians have tricked a big part of the American mainstream into supporting them. They did it by co-opting the Christian Right's "moral" issues and grafting them onto their extreme "free market" Social Darwinist ideology by way of the teachings of so-called "Christian economist" Gary North. This strange pair then hijacked the Republican Party, forced out or sidelined everyone who still believes in the ideals of Lincoln, the Progressivism of Theodore Roosevelt, and the "Middle Way" philosophy of Eisenhower. Ronald Reagan would be too liberal for the Koch brothers and others like them.

I am hoping that the Libertarian - Christian Right interspecies marriage will break up. What will come out of it I don't know. But I can say that it will be a nasty, bitter divorce.

i bought some 'baccie',too but smoked most of it.really liked what you said about "faux"(that's french for false,right)news.well, let me give you my alternate analogy.Faux news reminds me so much of the WWA(that is the world wrestling assn.-or just good ole 'rasling').it is all choreographed,scripted,and orchestrated -by Murdoch,the man.Of course,they have their 'liberals'(WWA=bad guys)who kinda remind me of the puppet on the old 'howdy doody show',but in the end,the 'good guys'(conseratives)always win the day.I would just love to see someone 'bitchslap' O'rielly -and show his ass some real spin.

sorry,but forgot to mention that "faux news" has about as much to do with news as the wwa does with pro sports.Also,did you see(since you mentioned T.Roosevelt)"the men who built america,on the "history channel"?We really need republicians like him today!
