  1. Then we must disagree on what is necessary. You draw the line at vaccines? Do you favor mandating vaccines for everyone? What should the penalty be for not vaccinating? A simple fine? Denial of services? No entry to stadiums, parks, buildings? Termination of employment? Armed soldiers going door to door giving the jab? The firing squad? ... Excuse my sense humor.
  2. Ok. Vaccinating doesn't help either. The CDC recommends masking even if vaccinated because you can still be contagious. If you are going to throw it out there that these measures are not full proof then the only way not to initiate force by your standard is to permanently isolate from others. Not reasonable.
  3. I see. So you can't know if you're contagious. Testing doesn't exist. Masking and distancing isn't an option. It's vaccinate or risk killing others. Binary option fallacy.
  4. Which people are saying the looting is wrong? I'm not a corporation getting welfare so I can't be a hypocrite on this one.
  5. Thank you. This is potentially great news.
  6. My action? I'm stuck on a train that will kill 1 person or 5 people no matter what I do. I can only minimize the casualties.
  7. To the extent that liberty is established and protected, something resembling "social order" is a by product. That's as far as I will go with it.
  8. What will make you happier. Having the ability to climb a mountain or just being at the top of it?
  9. False dichotomy. This assumes men have to choose between one or the other. Why can't he be both? Something else occurs to me: If you make enough money to be a good provider it means that you are productive. Productiveness (one of the seven major Objectivist virtues) is an "alpha" quality. What's "beta" about it?
  10. Is that what you made? A mere assertion? I think you know that no one is obligated to disprove a mere assertion. There is an invisible pink elephant in my bedroom. Can you disprove that assertion? Should you have to?
  11. This presupposes that a family has to be sustained. Why is that necessary?
  12. It's still not a duty. If you believe it is and choose accordingly you are just wrong.
