Paul supports Assange
Rep. Ron Paul has announced that he supports Julian Assange’s massive release of secret State Department cables. Which means Paul wants to make it impossible for the U.S. government to conduct negotiations with foreign governments, for example, with Muslim governments that are secretly helping us fight al Qaeda. Which means he is against the very functioning of government, including the national defense. Which means that Ron Paul, the hero of libertarians and at present America’s emblematic libertarian, is really a nihilist anarchist. Which supports my argument that libertarianism, which claims to be a political philosophy, is in reality opposed to the very existence of political society. Which means, as I wrote two weeks ago, that libertarianism is a transparent fraud.
