    So name calling really is all you have. You have been challenged to a philosophical debate. Are you up to it or not? If calling names is the best you can manage, then I am afraid that you have brought a knife to an intellectual gunfight.

    Ducking the issue presented to you does not enhance your case. Either stick to the topic, or stay away and admit that you are unable to defend your philosophy.

    Okay, this is degenerating into more name calling and sniping already. Let us put a question to both sides, if you don't mind?

    Assuming that an actual body of government does exist in your philosophy, how does the government go about appropriating the necessary funds to conduct its activities?

    Please note: both sides should get a chance to present their case in as much detail as they'd like before you start tearing into each other again.

    Thanks, but I already stated the topic I wish to discuss here. If they can't prove that the very real possibility for slavery exists within the philosophy of libertarianism, then I will have achieved my goal. If you want to start a debate on the subject of government collecting income, feel free to do so, but that is not the challenge that I have issued on the thread that I began.

    You mean that it is a woman who is calling lots of names but not engaging in anything resembling a philosophical debate which was the intent of this challenge?

    If that represents handing one's shorts to one in your world, then intelligent conversation is obviously not part of your world.

    If you aren't up to it, I understand.
