Beijing-based Austrian architect and designer Florian Pucher turned a lifelong fascination with how the world looks from way up high in the sky into an awesome series of stylish area rugs.
“I have always loved to travel and tried to always get window seats on planes,” said the Beijing-based Austrian architect who even avoided travelling by night in order to see as many different landscapes as possible.
Pucher’s limited edition LANDCARPET series is modeled after aerial images, satellite photos and maps, of real locations from all over the world. Landscapes viewed from miles overhead are stylized and laid at your feet in plush maps of varying shape, color and height, made of 100% New Zealand wool.
I would say the words “conservative” and “liberal” in front of libertarianism.
There is libertarian conservatism and there is left-libertarianism, which I believe is an oxymoron.
To put in the most basic of explanations, libertarian conservatives are those that believe in individual liberty, free markets, private property, and preserving the culture through social morality and values.
Left-libertarianism is some cooked-up ideology that tries to claim individual freedom, unconventional social egalitarianism, collectivism, and either socialism or full-on anarchy.
I’m a libertarian, but left-libertarianism is actually the original. There are also no conservative libertarians. I think what you meant is either classical liberalism or just plain old social conservatives masquerading as libertarians.
^^^^ Yep. The Conservative libertarians are basically, republicans who are fed up with the grand old party and try to drag as many ideas as they can with them. They are conservatives, they adopt the libertarian views (the ones that suit them).
“The Libertarian way is a logically consistent approach to politics based on the moral principle of self-ownership. Each individual has the right to control his or her own body, action, speech, and property. Government’s only role is to help individuals defend themselves from force and fraud.”
Looked at that cooked up idea that individual freedom is important.
Are Libertarians liberal or conservative?
Libertarians are neither. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both personal and economic liberty. For example, Libertarians advocate freedom in economic matters, so we’re in favor of lowering taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and charitable — rather than government — welfare. But Libertarians are also socially tolerant. We won’t demand laws or restrictions on other people who we may not agree because of personal actions or lifestyles.
Think of us as a group of people with a “live and let live” mentality and a balanced checkbook.
In a sense, Libertarians “borrow” from both sides to come up with a logical and consistent whole — but without the exceptions and broken promises of Republican and Democratic politicians. That’s why we call ourselves the Party of Principle.”
Here Anon. A little time on the Libertarian Website and you will see there isn’t “insert ideology of your own” libertarian.
The people who advocate as one or the other are often frustrated with some things in their own party but unwilling to accept the full principles of the libertarian party because most want big government just their brand of it. As for cooked up idea of full-on Anarchy well, I love that idea.
I just want a serial killer to love me is that too much to ask
Three-person suicide coffin. The story behind this custom coffin is that a couple’s infant daughter died, and they agreed to commit suicide and be buried with the daughter. At the last minute, they backed-out and never picked up the coffin from the coffin-maker. Here it rests at the National Museum of Funeral History, Houston.
