      [this file auto repeats periodically to everyone]

      Libertarian hard core, but tolerant, moderator
      encourages expression of your perspective
      on political liberty; especially about
      Reciprocal Physical Comprehensive Autonomy
      for each person.

      That means that, while you need not BE a libertarian
      yourself, each message that you post in this forum
      must be an actual extrapolation (pro or con) from
      the libertarian 'physical aggression truce' premise that:
      each person may do anything that they individually
      choose to do of their own free will EXCEPT
      initiate, or do a credible threat to initiate, physical force
      against the person or justly acquired possessions of another
      (yes, this does address fraud too)

      PleaseRead http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LibertyProspects/message/997

      You are free to attack what is posted in this forum,
      but NOT the poster; NO ad hominem!

      Thus for example, ANY judgements of a PERSON (or people),
      as opposed to of ACTIONS, IDEAS & ISSUES expressed by same,
      over race, ethnic origin, creed* or personal lifestyle
      such as, for example, being black, brown, yellow, white,
      Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Pagan, Wiccan, atheist,
      boozer, doper, nudist, hetero or homo sexual enthusiast
      and so on PER SE, are OFF topic in this forum;
      as they are NOT an actual extrapolation pro or con
      from the LIBERTARIAN principle expressed

      at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Libertarian/message/27648

      and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Libertarian/message/22990

      Libertarian idealism offers a consistent broadly inclusive principle
      that is successfully competing with the terrible old order
      of authoritarianism; and providing hope for the future.
      The process of replacing authoritarian 'pack magic'
      with a 'truce' between 'peers' commenced on a large scale
      about 200-400 years ago and built upon the innate
      'physical aggression truce' that made some degree of social life
      practical and beneficial. 'Universal peerage' (like 'equal before the law)
      facilitated by a growing consciousness about the advantages
      of keeping consistent to the 'truce' has become the potent engine
      for transition to a worldwide free civilized society;
      the fruit of libertarian idealism in human history and future.

      We must be FOR a brave love of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness;
      as it triumphs over the tyranny of fear!
