Hiatus: The Start

Posted in Uncategorized on May 11, 2015 by Xajow

Students, foes, lurkers, I am here to announce that Liberate One is now officially on hiatus. What does that mean? It means very few if any posts for a long while, and no comments. I need to focus on some other things that simply have greater priority than this blog. At some undefined point in the future, Liberate One may re-open. Continue reading

Read Me First: Some Ground Rules

Posted in The Rules on March 3, 2015 by Xajow

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “to speak of many things: of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—of cabbages—and kings—and why the sea is boiling hot—and whether pigs have wings.” But before we get to other tomfoolery, I believe I need to set down some rules. Continue reading

Libertarianism versus the Modern Pharisees, part 2

Posted in Anti-libertarianism, Argumentation, Christianity, Libertarianism, Morality, Philosophy, Politics with tags , , , , , , on April 15, 2015 by Xajow

In the previous post, I started talking about the ways libertarianism is often attacked for being immoral, un-Christian, and unfit for society. Some people want to argue that moral path, the Christian path is to claim authority over other people, to use the authority of government to place legal burdens on other people. My response was (and is) that no, that is not the moral and Christian way. It is not the example laid out for us in the Bible. Today, I will talk about the idea that libertarianism is self-centered and callous, and that for this reason it is immoral or un-Christian. Spoiler Alert: I don’t agree. Continue reading

Libertarianism versus the Modern Pharisees

Posted in Anti-libertarianism, Christianity, Libertarianism, Morality, Philosophy, Politics, Religion with tags , , , , , on April 11, 2015 by Xajow

Libertarianism. If you listen to some people, they will tell you that word, libertarianism, means selfishness and callousness, that it signifies a shallow and childish ideology that cannot address the complex problems of the complex world in which we live. Only liberal ideas, conservative ideas, progressive ideas, et cetera, can address the real and complex problems of the world. And of course, so they claim, libertarianism therefore cannot be considered compatible with the moral teachings of Christianity. Their solution? Have government do something, and by do something they mean make their moral preferences into laws. This makes them, in my opinion, equivalent to the depiction of the Pharisees seen in the Gospels of the New Testament. Continue reading

Eric Posner Says College Students Are Ignorant Children

Posted in Argumentation, First Amendment, Libertarianism, Philosophy with tags , , , , , , on February 13, 2015 by Xajow

In the “smart enough that he should know better” category is Eric Posner. Who is Eric Posner? Well, he is a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, and an apparently confused fellow who thinks that Bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme and that the NSA spying on Americans is just fine. And he also thinks that “Students who enter college know hardly anything at all,” and that problems universities face, from people being offended to rape, all stem from the problem “that universities have been treating children like adults.” Yes, I am about to disagree with Eric Posner and explain why he is wrong. Proceed at your own risk. Continue reading

In Which I Answer Some Questions About Submissiveness

Posted in D/s, Questions Answered, submission with tags , , , , on January 23, 2015 by Xajow

Take your seats, students. Class is in session. Recently I received some questions from an impatient commenter who wishes to remain anonymous: What does it mean if you’re submissive with a certain kind of person and not with others? And does that mean you are not submissive? What’s an ideal submissive? Is it a 24/7 submissive like a Dom would be? And what does it mean if you genuinely are the complete opposite with others and this can’t mean you only enjoy role playing a submissive if you genuinely are with the people who can bring that side out or make you want to let them take control? Is a good submissive always submissive? So let us try to unpack some of this and provide some answers. Continue reading
