You’ve probably never heard of this wacky bunch of Ayn Rand worshipers called “anarcho-capitalists” because their half-witted ramblings are confined to the internet. These nutjobs are basically libertarians on steroids. They scream about how the government is the cause of all of life’s problems (stubbed your toe? “GOVERNMENT!”, have a cough? “GOVERNMENT!”). If you ever come across one of this rabid Rand lovers it’s best to be armed because, like religious fundamentalists they will never listen to anything that challenges their deeply held beliefs.
So the first thing to do is to call them free market fundamentalists. Calling someone a fundamentalist is a great tactic because it automatically makes your opponent look irrational, which is true because they don’t like it when their deep seated assumptions are challenged. The fact is you just have to have governments. It’s a complete non-starter to deny this and anyone who claims the opposite should not be taken seriously. At all.
Second, these narrow minded children only ever read from sources that confirm their biases and call anything disputing the “facts” gleaned from their favorite outlets as propaganda so if ever you see “AnCap” rantings on the internet, don’t be afraid to do the same and call whatever they say propaganda. Not that they frequent Alternet, Think Progress, Huffington Post, USA Today or Salon much because truth rolls off them like (polluted) water off a duck’s back.
Another cool tactic is to call them shills, because that’s what they are - shills to the Kochtopus dark money machine. They just spew out “information” they’ve heard from their favorite outlets without applying any kind of critical thinking skills. They unfortunately lack the superior logic that come naturally to progressives.
Another great tool is pointing out that their stateless, free market utopia is impossible. The free market has never existed and will never exist. It is a fantasy, a delusion. If Ayn-caps ever got their way they’d have the tax payer bail out banksters every day, privatizing the profits and socializing the losses just like the financial crisis which was caused by the free market.
You can never really argue with fundies. They’re smug, cling irrationally to their ideas, and spew countless contradictions that don’t mesh with reality, which has a liberal bias anyway.
i wonder if a business has ever loss money on purpose in order to get taxes back or pay lesser taxes in the future.
