Comment Re:Libertarians (Score 1) 206

Would you like to hear something interesting? I'm a libertarian socialist - I think the government has a responsibility to do things like transportation, utilities, telecom, and other infrastructure, but that they should have essentially no control over individual people.

In my opinion, libertarians have a collective persecution bias. I don't think libertarians (little L) would know what to do with themselves if they actually became a significant force. Oh the status quo and people profiting and the founding fathers... everybody opposes us which prevents us from doing anything.

And, deep down, I think they know it. People know that withdrawing government from, well, just about everything could never work. But it's popular to denigrate the government because it can't argue back. It's a one-sided 'debate' that nearly everybody agrees with - and that's fun.
