On a Blog called Technoraty one entry goes like this: "The libertarian arguments against animal rights I’ve seen, most of which stem from the tradition of Rand and/or Rothbard, engage in twin, massive cheats...." What a wonderful way to set out to engage in a discussion, is it not? Rand and Rothbard and others who see things roughly their way "engage in twin, massive cheats..." In other words, they are liars, not wrong! Well, there is no reason to talk with people who consider you a liar--clearly there is no hope of any kind of fruitful exchange once such a ad hominem has been hurled at someone. This is one way I am not all that fond of Blogging--there are too many people involoved who lack even a modicum of civility.
