What is a libertarian socialist?
Someone who wants collective ownership of the means of production rather than the state owning the means of production or the rich owning it. Socialism at it's roots was always libertarian, that is what true socialism is about. The first socialists were people who wanted to take the egalitarian principles of classical liberalism even further and eliminate the concept of class from society, so that no group would have power over others. The idea of the state owning everything came later, and was more of a faulty way of transitioning into "real" socialism than an end goal in and of itself. You see, Marx among others arrived at the conclusion that to implement socialism you would first have to have a central organizing body who knew what they were doing to set up socialism and teach the masses how to self govern. The idea was to have a state (with democracy and with checks and balances) which would initially run things through a mix of central planning and democracy. For obvious reasons though, the state always becomes corrupt and expands it's power rather than "withering away" as Marx and other socialist thinkers intended. That is why libertarian socialists reject the state, and instead condone socialism arising from a grass roots level. We believe in democracy and equality, but not at the expense of individual liberty.
You have no respect for the game
Shut up you fucking retard. Stop telling me what I care about or respect, you are always going to be wrong because your sole reason for doing so is to convince yourself of your own assertions. No matter how many times you tell yourself that I cheated it won't be true.
technically science is a form of religion
That's just so fucking dumb though even if you consider it more of an ideology and only religious by extension. It is literally the opposite of religion in so many ways, much more than it is similar to it and you know this but you're a gay butt plug who will resort to bending language to avoid admitting something you said was dumb.
It takes measurements which fall into the past as soon as they are obtained.
The past is linked to it's own future in ways that make it easier to "guarantee" things. It's called causality.
people are restricted from obtaining more knowledge by their very own biases in the present.
Science is a "religion" that tells you not to have beliefs, and thus it is the opposite of a religion.
t's still fairly shit as a serious method of discovering what is going on.
Then why are you jumping to insane conclusions like "life created reality" based on a laymen's level of interpretation of fairly shit methods?
I gave you my opinion based on multiple conversations made over a three year period. I'm actually fairly well qualified to comment on what you care about.
On that premise, I am also qualified to comment on what you care about. What you care about and don't care about are obvious judging by the fact that I have witnessed you cling to your preconceived notions of what the facts are for the last three years by distorting and abusing terminology. Your primary debate tactic is to deflect what an opponent says by picking out certain words and attacking their terminology, often changing their entire argument into whatever you want it to be. Also you create your debates with loaded language so you can claim you meant or didn't mean this or that based on convenience.
