    Regardless of the recent upswing in deaths from Left Wing terrorism since 2016, Nationalist and Right Wing terrorists have killed about 10 times as many people since 1992.

    I'm British so I don't know how this comment will go down, but here goes. The British had the resources the quash the rebellion before it really started. William Howe, the Britsh commander-in-chief, could have destroyed Washington's army at Long Island and around a fifth of American colonists were loyal to the Crown, however you have to remember we're talking about America as it was in the late 1700's. It's not like the British were losing the colony that hosted Apple, Microsoft, Starbucks, Wal-Mart etc. it was made up of cotton and tobacco farms. Back then, Jamaica was the powerhouse of the British empire since that's where sugar was produced, and sugar at that point was basically the equivalent of oil today.

    Furthermore the British troops and particularly the commanders held back since they felt like they were being ordered to kill their own brothers. Sir Guy Carlton who was the Governor of Quebec, justified his lenient treatent of Patriot prisoners by saying 'Since we have tried in vain to make them acknowledge us as brothers, let us at least send them away as first cousins.' I am by no means trying to undermine what the American Patriots did because it was by no means a walk in the park, but I'm not as surprised about them winning.

    > Outdated hunting equipment

    The colonists had many more rifles in use than the smoothbore muskets used by the British, which were "higher tech." Muskets were faster to load, which was great for the British formations and volley fire tactics. However, the slower reload speed of a rifle was much more than offset by having triple the effective range when used with guerrilla tactics. Shooting at the British troop formations from the woods and then retreating before they could maneuver into range was pretty effective. Kind of like how dealing with a few snipers and roadside bombs in Afghanistan today doesn't make a tank battalion all that useful.

    > Outdated hunting equipment

    The colonists had many more rifles in use than the smoothbore muskets used by the British, which were "higher tech." Muskets were faster to load, which was great for the British formations and volley fire tactics. However, the slower reload speed of a rifle was much more than offset by having triple the effective range when used with guerrilla tactics. Shooting at the British troop formations from the woods and then retreating before they could maneuver into range was pretty effective. Kind of like how dealing with a few snipers and roadside bombs in Afghanistan today doesn't make a tank battalion all that useful.

    We won because India was in open rebellion and the British sent 50+ army groups there while only sending 2 army groups to America.

    Thank India for our independence today.

    The French would win. And in return, the historically illiterate peasants they aided would go through time mocking their military prowess.

    You can thank the native americans for teaching the europeans about guerilla warfare. The plain Indians were the greatest light infantry known to man that's why we named our attack helicopter after them. The Apache.

    Our founding fathers were not libertarians. Between the alien and sedition act, The purchase of Louisiana and the embargo act the idea that the founding fathers believed that they their power was limited by the what constitution explicitly said is BULLSHIT. Love libertarianism or hate it. The founding fathers did not subscribe to it.

You cry like a bitch if you see a Nazi punched and run to their defense as a Nazi safety advocate. You pretty much have a fucking aneurism if you see a walgreens with a broken window.... you claim you need automatic rifles to fight a tyrannical government yet you dont do jack shit but share memes.... you wont even skip on your taxes..... give me a fucking break.

    Libertarians back then asked, "how can you tell its a red coat?", and rolled around on the ground, arms flailing, knickers kicking, and tears rolling as you saw tea being dumped in the harbor. Please.... lmao!! A "revolution" to a libertarian is showing up to work on time and licking the boss's butthole squeaky clean. There is absolutely nothing "revolutionary" about a libertarian.....

    The British army was the joke of Europe in the 1770's. It was small, decently trained, but employed outdated organization and doctrine. With a few exceptions, the performance of the British army in European warfare on the Continent has been quite poor.

    I get where you would see this as a valid argument but the government doesn’t classify things simply because they want to hide it from the public for fear or backlash or criticism or because they did anything wrong at all. But I assume you realize this and just posted this picture as humor

    The tactics over the past few years have been to label speech with which people disagree as "hate speech." There is undoubtedly still plenty of actual hate speech out there, but we're talking about people who were once far to the left, who are now not left enough... being called complicit in the patriarchy or whatever the ingroup/outgroup du jour is they're railing against.. Bari Weiss wrote an interesting opinion piece about the "Intellectual Dark Web" awhile back that touched on some of this, and though I'm not certain what Kanye is really up to, he's definitely challenging the perception of what is expected of his "identity." It's a small amount of people who are the loudest and most oppressive, but they seem to continue growing their numbers... which is dangerous.

    Well what’s called libertarian in the United States, which is a special U. S. phenomenon, it doesn’t really exist anywhere else — a little bit in England — permits a very high level of authority and domination but in the hands of private power: so private power should be unleashed to do whatever it likes. The assumption is that by some kind of magic, concentrated private power will lead to a more free and just society.

    And

    Yes, and so well that kind of libertarianism, in my view, in the current world, is just a call for some of the worst kinds of tyranny, namely unaccountable private tyranny. Anarchism is quite different from that. It calls for an elimination to tyranny, all kinds of tyranny. Including the kind of tyranny that’s internal to private power concentrations. So why should we prefer it? Well I think because freedom is better than subordination. It’s better to be free than to be a slave. It's better to be able to make your own decisions than to have someone else make decisions and force you to observe them. I mean, I don’t think you really need an argument for that. It seems like … transparent.

    Very rarely are you prohibited by the (US) government from saying what you want. Even when they did limit it, it was more towards shutting left wing socialist/communists down.

    The reality is right wing/Libertarian speakers have always been able to speak, it's just nobody wants to hear them.

    When I read this comment my thought is, the public (people not government) established the box, and they aren't interested in the inane ramblings of ancapism. Or the drumbeat of minarchist. That's the people saying shut up, which violates no Libertarian philosophy I know of.

Then the debate becomes whether or not Striped People should be shot or not and a reasonable sounding middle ground is just to keep them out of the country.
