I’m gettin’ kinda libertarian on a lot of this stuff.

Yeah, and how's that working out for you? Is the country getting more or less freedom as liberal societal norms take over the culture?

Look, the law is coded morality. You can either embrace the traditional conservative moral law codified which will admittedly oppress certain groups preferred behavior or norms.

Or you can embrace the liberal morality codified which will oppress everybody eventually.

There'll be no libertarian compromise. It's never existed and it never will. It's not compatible with human nature any more than the communists (whose goal was anarcho-communal living and called themselves libertarians first).

Someone's going to get a hold of the levers of power in a society, so who do you want and where do you want that power directed?

The levers of power? The story is about a wedding dress.

The libertarian solution is the only one in this situation, and it's also the conservative solution.

The store owner has every right to refuse service to someone, and the refused buyer has every right to raise hell about it if they choose.

Case closed.

Apparently in your dictionary the words “liberal” and “libertarian” are interchangeable. Please consult the dictionary the rest of the world uses.

You must have next to that dictionary a rather unique history book where the Libertarians overthrew the czar and created communist Russia. Be assured, the author of this dubious book is quite alone in that theory.

This might give you a clue as to what my post was saying apart from you linguistic and historical flights of fancy...I’ll make it simple for the bibliophobic. Liberty. Libertarian. There’s a reason the words sound so much alike. Libertarians reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, and people have the liberty to seek other services or provide the service they prefer. Liberals would codify who you could serve and who not, reserving power for themselves. This is repetitive echo of my original reply; it is evident you do not read the posts you comment on.
