We Will First Need a Full-Fledged Moral Science
by Bodwyn Wook
IN Any durable libertarian set-up, we damn sure will need either a limited franchise, for a number of generations anyhow; or else, per Mr LUC at Libertarian Underclass, a damned well-written and AIR-TIGHT constitution. It will be firstly in order to control strictly & to allow this ‘universal’ ‘right’ to vote plaything loose only on some safely nullified level of popular entertainment & diversion. (The children of the lesser gods in the interval could be let to vote things like ‘Which Celebrity Do YOU Want For President?’ and so forth, with a big awards ceremony on telly after….)
In other words, I submit that the real success of any libertarian transition awaits necessarily the prior development of what Robert A Heinlein [pbuh] calls an effective understanding of ‘moral science’.
Meanwhile, rather obviously, public subsidy of any of these ‘parties’ (factions) on grounds of puniness, unpopularity (!) and/or fiscal mal-nourishment is a load of stale old cat cunodens.
EITHER A party is saleable to the people; or, it is not:
AND This can be only the doubly so in the case of the LPUSA & LPUK.
