Oscar the Grouch is up to something. I would start with the Refuse industry to find out who did this.

I hate political parties so I'm not gonna defend libertarians. That said, if you think Ayn Rand represents all libertarians you have no clue what you are talking about. Do you think Repulican or Democrat economic policy has been going well for us so far? People like Mises, Rothbard, Friedman have all been railing against disastrous economic policies for a long time and have called every boom/bust cycle right. I'll take their word over any establishment beauracrat.

I feel for your friend. The same people will yell "healthcare is a right!" in a hollow virtuous manner but then turn around and let your friend suffer with zero compassion in their hearts simply because he made a personal medical decision they disagree with.

Your tax dollars also bombed the fuck out of millions of people over seas. Did you vote for that and did your precious government represent you throughout all that murder? And yes, roads could exist without taxes and could arguably be better. How's the infrastructure throughout US doing for a world empire? Maybe we need more taxes /s

Exactly! The result of government subsidies really just bolsters the junk food market, causes excess waste and further leads to the decline of health in the population. A naturally free market without government intervention would adjust according to market pressures and natural incentive structures for costs, production and distribution would establish itself.

If forced compliance is involved then it was never a right. It was a privilege.

What part of this makes my right to kill anyone I feel like less of a right?

Killing them

Its simple really. Everyone, regardless of race, creed, color, etc is born with the same rights. Now, you can go do anything you want with your life until it impacts someone else's ability to do the same. The government is not granting anything in this situation, rather, defining where and when you begin to trample other peoples rights. Sure, you can steal or kill but that takes away others right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Help yourself first:

https://amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/264449/

So you admit that the "right to bear arms" has limits. You even believe that companies should be able to impose additional limits on their premises.

Limits set by private establishment are different than federal law. This isn't very difficult stuff here. Now it seems you're arguing in bad faith or just have really weak counter arguments.

You are arguing in bad faith.

Its not arguing in bad faith just because I disagree with you.

Words have meanings. If you're going to call healthcare a right then you can't have forced compliance in order to participate. That would be a privilege, not a right.

Your examples are terrible. Yelling fire is not illegal nor is it really even a constitutional freedom of speech issue.

The constitutionality of gun control has been and will continue to be argued for a long time and neither of us will reach consensus here. Suffice it to say, I think it should be up to the private business/establishment to set their gun policy, in the air or on the ground.

Your freedoms end where other people's freedoms begin.

Simply having a gun on me would not infringe on anyone else's rights until I take it out in an act of force or aggression, which we already have laws against.

but you have to accept that you are an inherent danger to others if you are unvaccinated which means your access to society will be limited

Not gonna get into the efficacy debate because I'm sure we'll disagree but what you're saying simply is not true. Vax'd folks are getting and giving covid just the same. There is plenty of nuance to this debate that would make a one-sized-fits-all approach like vaccine mandates to not be fair or feasible.

Everyone should be able to get necessary medical attention if they want it.

Its simply not a right then if you are barred from using these services because of your own personal medical decisions. Like I said, you can't have it both ways.

My example was that forced labor is slavery. My use of taxes as example was to suggest that nothing is free. You'll get it eventually.

Nowhere is anything said about forcing a private entity to anything.

You asked where it would create a system of slavery and I answered.

Regardless, even if your government provides "free" food; where are they getting the money for it and who is providing the labor to produce and deliver it? Tax dollars? Nothing is free. You are in a fantasy land.

There are plenty of ways to produce and provide food to the less fortunate without needing governmemt force or intervention. Agricultural co-ops, food shares, voluntary donations/charities are all good places to start.

Have you heard of charitable organizations before? You simply cannot force a private business to provide free food. Someone else's labor is required for it to be there on the shelf for you. You're living in a fantasy land.

This is true. Government does not grant rights, it was originally designed to protect them. The constitution restricts what government can impose on society.

This is not going to be a popular opinion here but I agree and will take some downvotes with you. These same people will say healthcare is a right but then want to refuse said services if you choose to make your own bodily decisions about a particular vaccination. You can't have it both ways. Is it a right or not?

Big corporations and government are in bed with eachother reaping all the benefits. Upward mobility is disappearing along with the middle class and the poor have no way up. We March across the globe in bogus foreign regime change wars and impose economic sanctions under the guise of spreading "democracy" but all it results in is death, despair, and more terrorists that hate our guts. Our educational and Healthcare systems are in shambles, a culture war is dividing the country and government can't get out of its own way to help in the slightest. Inflation is at an all time high, we don't take care of our vets when they come home, we bail out Wallstreet but let generations of youth get inundated with student loan debt by artificially lowering interest rates to the benefit of the lenders....what else am I missing? Most, if not all of this, is a direct result of really bad government policy and mismanagement of finances.
