Shorter Peter Thiel April 28, 2009Posted by Evil Bender in News and politics.
- Every Democracy in the world has rejected aspects of my ideology and its contempt for poor people and women. Libertarians will only be free once we escape to space or our own island nations, where The Market can finally thrive. And when King Arthur rides* by, we’ll be too busy gathering filth accumulating wealth to notice.
I honestly don’t know which part of this piece is the most absurd. I’m leaning towards the failure to recognize woman’s suffrage might be a blow to one’s ideology might suggest said ideology isn’t really about “freedom” at all. Or maybe it’s the idea of freedom from government IN SPACE. There are lots of candidates, which is why I’ll be pointing to Thiel’s essay whenever someone yabbers on about how great Libertarianism is.
