What’s the opposite of libertarian?

The Real Deal

I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals. That means Libertarian.

So what is the antonym of Libertarian?

Anarchist means doing away with laws that secure individual rights.

Cruel means willfully causing pain or suffering to others.

Truculent means eager or quick to argue or fight; aggressively defiant.

Pugnacious means eager or quick to argue, quarrel, or fight.

Coercive means using force or threats.

Violent means using or involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

Dangerous means able or likely to cause harm or injury. 

Dishonest is behaving or prone to behave in an untrustworthy or fraudulent way.

Totalitarian is centralized and dictatorial, requiring complete subservience to the State.

Deadly is causing or able to cause death. Synonym: politically powerful

Menacing is threatening, especially in a malignant or hostile manner.

So… what might be some other synonyms for Socialist? 

Cowardly is carried out against a person who is unable to retaliate: a cowardly attack on a helpless victim.

Unwillingly is against one’s wishes; reluctantly. 

Examples from looter party platforms. (Guess which party…)

Example 1: We must go for 100% renewables, use our energy efficiently, phase out fossil energy and nuclear power while creating sustainable jobs in affected regions. To cut emissions fast enough to reach the 1.5°C-world we will push hard for a just transition towards a net-zero-emissions economy. An EU carbon budget and a strong carbon floor price are needed to strengthen our efforts.

Example 2: We advocate increased research on and development of non-fossil fuel resources, tax breaks for companies engaging in such, and subsidies for consumers wishing to change from fossil fuels to renewable domestic sources of energy. We believe that climatic change could be an existential threat to civilization, and we will cooperate with other nations in mitigating its possible effects. However, we will not surrender our sovereignty in this, or any other regard.

Example 3: The progress made over the last three decades against drug abuse is eroding, whether for cultural reasons or for lack of national leadership. In many jurisdictions, marijuana is virtually legalized despite its illegality under federal law. At the other end of the drug spectrum, heroin use nearly doubled from 2003 to 2013, while deaths from heroin have quadrupled. All this highlights the continuing conflicts and contradictions in public attitudes and public policy toward illegal substances.

Example 4: We will fight back against attempts to make it harder for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to revoke federal licenses from law breaking gun dealers, and ensure guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists, intimate partner abusers, other violent criminals, and those with severe mental health issues. There is insufficient research on effective gun prevention policies, which is why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must have the resources it needs to study gun violence as a public health issue.

Example 5: We support the right of parents to consent to medical treatment for their minor children and urge enactment of legislation that would require parental consent for their daughter to be transported across state lines for abortion. Providers should not be permitted to unilaterally withhold services because a patient’s life is deemed not worth living. American taxpayers should not be forced to fund abortion. As Democrats abandon this four decade-old bipartisan consensus, we call for codification of the Hyde Amendment and its application across the government, including Obamacare. We call for a permanent ban on federal funding and subsidies for abortion and healthcare plans that include abortion coverage.

Who is Don Beeth?

The recent election hinged on one single issue: whether the brainwashees of looter totalitarianism would or would not manage to turn off the lights in America by banning electrical power generation.

The average yokel voting Republican will, of course, understand none of that. To them the idea is to keep forcing them nasty Jezebels to have unwanted babies–babies brainwashable into the Lebensborn indoctrination facilities that crank out goodthinkful, altruistic, church-going ‘Murricans willing to stand up to gun-grabbing commie atheists and their Saracen buddies.
The average Dem, CPUSA or Green voter will testify in abject and altruistic sincerity that its vote was cast to Save Humanity from Imminent Extinction at the hands of despicable Nazi Plutocrats eager to broil or drown us all like kittens in a bag for filthy lucre. A few will pipe up for saving kids in gun-free Lebensborn schools from being gunned down by well-meaning school chums who take the virtues of the initiation of deadly force a bit too far. These conflicting world-views are painfully clear to libertarians, who have no investment in either collection of fantastic mythologies and superstitions.

But to the men behind the curtains in all those parties–persons conversant with the equations formulated by James Clerk Maxwell during the Civil War, and who understand the meaning of such physical arcana as force, erg, joule, energy, work and Watt–the only thing at issue was whether the generation of electricity in These States would remain legal or be banned.

So why bother arguing with dupes who can’t grasp the fundamentals required for an understanding of the facts of reality? Far easier to send them scurrying this way and that, yipping and yelping about carefully planted red herrings and non-sequiturs that have nothing to do with the real issue.*

Republican dupes will yelp about the race suicide danger of Mohammedans reproducing faster than Christians, or the Kristallnacht gun laws them “liberals” (by which they mean commie atheists) are fixing to pass once the Second Amendment is repealed. Democratic dupes will at the same time rally their faithful against the imminent rewriting of the 14th Amendment to read “All Ova fertilized…” that Hitler-worshipping Christian National Socialists are plotting in their klaverns and bunkers. The peaks and troughs cancel out, much like the Fenton Silencer in the Arthur C. Clarke story, and generators pour forth electricity.

And so it is that while yellow journalists for both versions of the United States of Paranoia scurry to and fro with their frothings, the South Texas Nuclear Project just south of Houston will continue to light up city after city as more reactors are added online. Even Bernie supporters up north can flip on their Macs thanks to the CANDU reactors piping electricity out of godless, feminist Canada to the northeastern People’s States.

But to whom will the torch of science, political economy and engineering be passed as ‘Murrican mystical superstition is gradually replaced–not by skeptical Los Alamos physics and math–but by European looter groupthink and State-mandated pseudoscience?

If your translation needs include Portuguese and Spanish and infrastructure such as water & wastewater treatment plants, nuclear reactors, power dams, rolling mills and packing plants, look me up for a bid.
