Yeah the thing about (the modern American) ardent libertarian is that they are usually utterly, 180 degrees wrong. It's sort of like teaching Ayn Rand in a undergrad philosophy class on ethics or even metaphysics - it has no place to be taken seriously

Those in power... you mean the people when their representation still had a modicum of integrity?

It's been going on for decades, albeit at a somewhat chelonian pace; and now it's accelerating. Keep on voting GOP and corporate clown Dems... and this result will continue. Young people- you must get and vote - save your generation. Mine is lost to the oligarchs.
