I hate to break this to you, but your brand of libertarian don't get to monopolize the word.

You can say, they aren't libertarians, we are. But they will say the same thing in response about you.

Since I don't have any allegiance to either point of view, from my perspective there are two libertarianisms. Your kind, and the socialist kind.

If you'd like to talk about the differences, and the similarities, instead of throwing a hissy fit about this topic and how you don't like me calling libertarian socialists libertarians even though that is what they are called, then by all means continue, otherwise cease and desist.

And before you start anything, I would remind you that you have every right to post your own topic to say whatever you want about this. But this topic, its subject, and its parameters have been defined, and if you want to post in it, you must follow them.

Of late, you have been extremely oppositional, and disruptive and I expect that to stop.

I'm not being disruptive, as far as I'm aware I haven't done anything against the rules in here and I'm certainly not throwing a "hissy fit". Unless those are words you use to show you dislike someone disagreeing with you and the premise of the thread.

You can think what you like, but you are wrong for the reasons I have already laid out. Libertarian Socialism derives from Anarchy not modern Libertarian philosophy, the fact they share the same label according to some people does not mean they are related. They are about as related as Conservatism and Neo-Conservatism, whereas Neo-Conservatism draws its roots from the progressive movement not from the Conservative one.
