    No she's not. If you're the boss and I'm the employee, you have more power. She's not trying to abolish that. She's trying to clear social roadblocks that would prevent it.

    She very much was. She was 100% against coercion, deception, and the use of force. You might want to pick up one of her books and give it a read sometime. This isn't even about whether I agree with her ideas or not, it's just simple fact.

    Oh, they just deserve it. And love it. You don't think they would enjoy playing some silly games on a beach, do you?

    Of course not. This is path they chose in the good old days before Franklin Roosevelt raised the hammer and scycle.

    Anna5, I'd still like to know which "certain state" you were referring to in your description of libertarianism-gone-wrong. You backed out before, will you back out again? Just curious.

    Yes, children must have the right to be forced not to work so they and their families can starve to death through the brutal force of government.

    Indeed, children will have to resort to becoming prostitutes because the government will refuse to let them work at a normal job.

    FDR's FLSA is simply fascist legislation to benefit union labor at the expense of minorities and children.
