"such as, well, the right to have property in the first place, and not have it taken away by someone stronger and with a bigger gun!"
No, in this country the government will take it for them and claim its "for the betterment of the public". Which means that theory is a load of shit.
"your libertarian ideals are indeed better (good luck with that...)"
The majority of people who have it explained to them come to understand rather quickly that it is indeed a better way. However most people - nay almost all people in this country believe that they only have two choices. Thats a fallacy put forth by people like you who are afraid of having to actually earn what you have.
Your argument about africa has nothing to do with a free market or libertarian society. Matter of fact most of those governments are less corrupt than ours - they just dont have the power and influence to screw everyone over. Thats left to the drug dealers and slave owners. No different than it was in the western world 600 years ago - just more modern weaponry.
(and if you believe the reason we are where we are right now is governmental interference in day to day life I suggest you remove your head from your ass and start reading about the events in the world in the late 1700's - and not just the ones in this country)
