Libertarian sickos never stop

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.
Ayn, your perfect lover died many years before you were born.
I am speechless.
I hold your hand in mine, dear
I press it to my lips
I take a dainty bite from your finger tips
Surely that is "Martial" not "Marital". I checked with my wife and she wasn't in favour of pederasty.

Times were different. I am quite sympathetic towards De Sade. He wasnt locked away for being a pederast, although perhaps he should have been.

I'm sure "martial" was meant.

The thing about de Sade're never sure if he was kidding. I'm sure he genuinely got a sexual thrill from inflicting pain. But he also would try to come up with justifications for the unjustifiable more or less as an intellectual exercise, just to see if he cobble together a vaguely convincing rationale.

Besides -- then as now, shock sold books.
The arguments de Sade made are very much in line with Casanova's comments on the same subject matter. I am very sure Casanova wasn't joking when he discussed matters of "taste" and illogical "prejudices" against nature, as he might have put it.

But despite his advocacy of incest and paedophilia, he remained very good company. I very much enjoyed reading the History of my Life. I recommend it to anyone.

I read a Hindu author who said that Jesus was an avatar of the divine, as was Mary. According to Hindus, avatars appear on earth all the time.

I've always liked this explanation of Jesus. It makes sense that a primitive society would see such a person as the literal son of a literal God--and also that they would martyr him or her.
