WAIT, THE LATEST RIGHT-LIBERTARIAN ARGLE BARGLE IS BASED ON NOT MUCH OF ANYTHING?: Captain Renault reference, Captain Renault reference!
This is re: that idiotic "state workers forced a preschooler to eat chicken nuggets!" story out of North Carolina. Stupid right-libertarian argle bargles always take this form, by the way: state agent forces unwitting and/or powerless citizen to do something stupid! AREN'T AGENTS OF THE STATE ALWAYS DOING STUFF LIKE THIS? They are, like, the worst. And then you gargle with that argle bargle until the next one comes around.
(I like using the phrase "right-libertarian," I think. Non-left-libertarians are the ones most likely to claim they're neither left nor right, simply AWESOME FREE-THINKERS. They're also the ones most likely to side with the right on issues of GIT OFF MAH PROPERTY. "Propertarian" is kind of an epithet. "Right-libertarian" isn't, and it's descriptive, and contrasts well with left-libertarians, like, I don't know, ACLU members or something. Right-libertarians would be those in the Kochosphere certainly, employees of Reason or Cato. I guess it would also apply to the paleo-libertarians...well, "right-libertarian" is the umbrella term then, covering paleolibs and Kochlibs. There! Easy, cheap categories! I love the Internet.)
