THIS IS ALL NORMIES NEED TO UNDERSTAND: PROPERTARIANISM WILL MAKE THEIR LIVES BETTER AND FAST – NOT BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTAND IT. BUT BECAUSE OF THE LAW IT MAKES POSSIBLE.
Normal people are not students of, or interested in, nor necessarily capable of conceiving the world via the tools of calculus, economics, programming, law, or formal logic. They are merely the BENEFICIARIES of it when used by those of us who can.
If you merely explain that it is possible to use the law to prohibit the financial sector, the media, politicians and the academy from taking advantage of them by lying to them, and that Propertarianism provides a method of writing the law in order to make that possible, they will understand.
Because the work consists largely of:
(a) a single value-independent language of logic, science, ethics, politics, economics, and law.
(b) a set of criteria for testing whether or not statements made in that language (which is very close to law already) is false (such that it may still be true but it is not false or dependent upon pretense of knowledge).
(c) that we can add this to the constitution and the courts fairly easily. And in doing so allow us to continue market support of what we favor, and court suppression of falsehoods that we don’t.
(d) and if we do this most of the ‘redistributive demands’ can be made possible by disempowering of the financial, academy, media, and state sector, so that those proceeds can instead by consumed by the people (citizens),
(e) so that once again it is possible to bear and rase a family on one income, pay for one’s house, and then save for retirement for the vast majority of the laboring, working, middle, and upper middle classes.
That’s what they have to understand.
The rest of it is just the technical means of constructing, debating, writing, administering, and judging the law such that all of that is possible.
