Teabagger politicians in Maine are trying to ram through legislation which would re-legalize child labor
. The kids are to be paid less than minimum wage, naturally.
Do a little Googling and you'll see that libertarians have always wanted a return to the days
when children had the "freedom" to work.
Believe it or not, some libertarians even justify child prostitution
. That's the logical end result of their thinking, isn't it? After all, if an adult has the right to choose to be a sex worker, and if a child should have the right to do the work of an adult, and if the gummint has no business making laws in these realms... Well. It just makes sense, doesn't it?
The Divine Marquis was the ultimate libertarian:
Wolves which batten upon lambs, lambs consumed by wolves, the strong who immolate the weak, the weak victims of the strong: there you have Nature, there you have her intentions, there you have her scheme: a perpetual action and reaction, a host of vices, a host of virtues, in one word, a perfect equilibrium resulting from the equality of good and evil on earth.
To punish pederasty is a barbarity for no "abnormity of taste" can be a crime. Just as little is tribadism a crime. Both practices are highly regarded by the aged. Marital people indeed highly praised them because they enhanced courage and bravery.
Finally the fourth class, murder. There are two ways to view it, by natural and political law. From the standpoint of nature murder is no crime. There is no difference to nature between men, plants and animals. Man is born, grows, multiplies, dies and returns to the soil as all the other creatures of nature. It is just as great a crime to kill an animal. It is only our vanity that finds a distinction.
