five stars because I can't discern if this is supposed to mock or support the libertarian worldview. based on the channel name it's the latter?

don't want to know, five stars.

Cena_mark - 2016-09-12

What got me is the concept of Libertarian Trekkies. Do they just ignore the world of Star Trek where the world is under a unified socialist system that doesn't even have money?

That guy - 2016-09-12

love, my sentiments exactly

It's like half-mock, half-support, to go with the mix of competent hamming and incompetent.

Wouldn't libertarian Star Trek just be the Ferengi?

bawbag - 2016-09-12

Or the Pakleds.

Old_Zircon - 2016-09-13

No, Ferengi are just classic "Shylock" Jewish stereotypes.

Old_Zircon - 2016-09-13

Reason.tv - it's 100% not mocking.

Incidentally, Peter Bagge has been working for them for something lie 15 years.

I don't believe this should have had some of the downvotes it did in the hopper, since it was a convenient collection of the poetv left, probably objecting to 'libertarian'.

May I remind you of more tolerant times here, and to try to save downvotes for when shit is not poeworthy?

15th - 2016-09-12

Yes, it's a strange time here. Welcome back, and thanks for bringing my Dumbing Down University clip up to -2. I didn't submit it as my own personal opinion, but I figured the comments would be interesting. I also assumed some people would scrub through it, here a buzzword and vote it down, as if to prove the guy correct.

Cena_mark - 2016-09-12

I don't get all the down votes either. I just vote up things I'd like to discuss here. I rarely ever down vote.

That guy - 2016-09-12

The downvote flurry started as the casting of an over-wide net to keep lotsmoreorcs submissions from getting through, since he was posting plenty of racist shit that wasn't poeworthy.

That net got real wide, though, and there's no need for it now.

bawbag - 2016-09-12

'Poetv left...probably objecting to...'
'...a buzzword and vote it down'

Those are pretty broad assumptions imho.

I can only speak for myself, but I generally (and from here on out) will downvote stuff I find mundane or non-poeworthy, the definition of which varies wildly from you to me and everybody else here.

If we don't agree on that definition, I'm okay with that, you should be too.

Hazelnut - 2016-09-12

poetv is a microcosm of, I don't know, something I'm sure

Cena_mark - 2016-09-12

Wait, is Orcs gone now?

15th - 2016-09-12

That's spot on, bawbag, that's the way it should go. That guy pretty much said what I meant to, in regards to the wide net. I shouldn't make generalizations, you're right. I just wouldn't want every politically charged video submitted to be thought of as some sort of statement. Orcs has rattled some cages and I think the political discussions have become a bit reactionary and defensive.

Basically, I want to shit on liberals from time to time.

15th - 2016-09-12

Also, I've been a bit a sanctimonious this last few days. Sorry. I will be returning to one sentence comments 9/19.

That guy - 2016-09-12

I hear you bawbag, 100%. It's fully possible that it was a coincidence here. If you don't think it's poeworthy, that's cool.

I was part of the 'vote shit down in the hopper to stop orcs' crowd, so I'm not throwing stones.

I don't want us to miss any valuable discussions/arguments, or jokes etc just because you or I don't want to have it. I'm saying:
Abstain from voting if you're personally sick of a subject or disagree with it, but you know it may belong here.

I promise to do the same. We shouldn't see the same 3-4 cats voting down subjects because it's a conversation they refuse to have on here. Any one video may be not poeworthy, but let's recover a higher-minded ethos on what gets votes here. It shouldn't just be 'YUCK' or 'YUM'.

SolRo - 2016-09-12

yes cena, didn't you see the video of orcs getting hit by an overtuned Chinese flamethrower?

somedongus - 2016-09-13

But, for seriously, guys? Is it gone? Is it? Gone? That guy ("Orcs", obviously not "That guy") sucked, balls.

BTW's: This video shows as rather limited understanding of Star Trek, in general, and humor, in particular.

Born in the RSR - 2016-09-12

I'm just here to say that we miss That_guy on our monday streams. Come back to us guy!

Also: this is terrible.

SolRo - 2016-09-12

I downvoted it because pillager likes that idiotic libertardian 'every side is equally horrible shit except mine' southpark-esque scene.

I didn't see anything else of redeeming value or entertainment.

That guy - 2016-09-12

fair enough

Maggot Brain - 2016-09-13

Why would a libertarian care if the replicator was gay or not? Shouldn't he be trying to score smack from the machine? Or maybe the replicator should be price gouging him, something, but not this.

betamaxed - 2016-09-13

The ideology is wrong but I found this amusing for reasons already surfaced by Cena_Mark and That guy.

I figure if this site can be happy with the following video making it through the hopper then we can survive through Star Trek: The Libertarian Edition.
