I have not yet read of a contemporary US libertarian commentator who states all people should be allowed agency and are also respectful or enabling towards people who don't. In a way it is only allowing libertarianism for their kind.

Further to this, with regards to thesis, antithesis and synthesis (and not in the turning upside down sense), in reality it is wrong, do you know why?

Well I'm going to tell you why, so sit back kiddies while your Uncle PickleBottom teaches you about the reality of the situation;

Suppose we have a thesis and this is empire rule - whatever the emperor states is law.

Then we have an antithesis, some scholars demonstrate a system of rule where all citizens benefit, whether this is through a capitalist, socialist, libertarian, anarchist etc society. The theory is sound.

Now some hippie philosophers will tell you that the ideas of one and the other will synthesise to form a new thesis. But they are wrong! Do you know why they are wrong? I'm going to tell you.

The sociopaths of the initial thesis or antithesis only allow the new synthesis when they are on top of it. This is, in a way, like Nash's Equilibrium where equilibrium is reached, or the new thesis is reached, only once sociopaths are on top of it.

An example of this is climate change;
Thesis - steady as she goes lads let's pollute the atmosphere with carbon like mutherfuckers
Antithesis - oh lord in heaven, posterity, the tragedy of the commons, alas poor Yorick
Thesis - Yeah whatever you reckon cunt
Antithesis - Stats, data, Science!
Thesis - Why don't you suck my dick?
Antithesis - Carbon tax, carbon credits
Thesis - Yippee! Why didn't you say so? Let's join forces!
Synthesis - Carbon! My God the carbon! How come no one is thinking of the children?!?

No matter how bad the opposition is, I'd vote for a blind 3 legged dog with mange over Trump. Even if it was dead.
