I know 90% of my readers are men, and therefore could care less about my relationship problems (LOL), but I felt compelled to make a post about this anyways, given that it relates to my libertarian beliefs. My girlfriend of a year and half got into an argument with me recently over kids and other things, which lead to the relationship ending.
She basically wanted the following:
Wanted me to move to Orange County (expensive, overpriced), creating an hour long commute to work and an hour long commute home every day.
Wanted me to have kids with her, and most importantly, wanted those kids to attend a public school.
Wanted me to fix up any house she decided to buy with her inherited money.
Planned on having her mother live with us for an extended period of time.
Wanted to vaccinate any kids we might have.
Refused to let me engage in certain activities that I highly enjoy.
I actually agreed to all of them to a degree.
I agreed to live in OC.
I agreed to fix up any house she might buy.
I agreed to having kids.
I agreed to letting her mom live with us.
I agreed to give up certain activities in/around the home that she didn’t like.
But I couldn’t budge on a few issues, which basically sent her off the deep end. There is no way I would ever stick my kid in a public school. I don’t even like private schools all that much, since they teach out of the same texts that the public schools use. I would prefer to have my kids home schooled. I also don’t like the idea of vaccinating my kids. Vaccines are only marginally effective, and they have potentially dangerous side effects. They aren’t worth the risk in my opinion. And as for my “activities,” I told her I would find another place to do them. (no, I’m not blowing rails of cocaine, binge drinking, or doing anything that harms myself, anyone else or anyone else’s property). Of course, I was accused of lying to her about my desire to have a family, and refusing to “grow up” and “be a man.” After which she chucked my perfectly good mini-air conditioner in the trash and told me she never wanted to speak to me again.
Put another mark down for a relationship ended by libertarian ideals.
So, if there are any good looking single libertarian girls between the ages of 22-30 in southern California that are interested in dating an established good looking anarchist, drop me a line
At this point, I’ve pretty much committed myself to never getting involved in a relationship with someone who isn’t a libertarian. They just don’t work out in the end. Unfortunately, the number of good looking young women who are libertarians in southern Califorian is somewhere between 0 and nil, so I’ll probably just stay single for the rest of my time here on this planet.
An interesting side note, the following people never had any children of their own, at least to my knowledge:
Ludwig Von Mises (had a step-daughter)
Lew Rockwell (adopted daughter)
Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk
Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
along with many more.
