Why libertarians don't own their own bodies

I’ve been intending for some time to respond at length to the libertarian-bashing of Richard Chapple from the ‘Philosophy et cetera’ blog, about which I referred here. So I have. At some length. Here.

I commend it to your attention.


  1. Philosophy student??? Oh God... if I didn't have such respect for Richard Goode, I would be exercising my right to say nasty things and to laugh condesendingly

  2. Robin - ha, yeah, reckon, who needs to think? Why, that might get in the way of our right to show off our pig ignorance!

    PC - Cheers. I've got a detailed response of my own, here.

3. Read the post before you comment. Challenge facts, but don't simply ignore them.
4. Use a name. If it's important enough to say, it's important enough to put a name to.
