    Has this form of government been successfully practiced anywhere? If so, where?

    Here's a conversation featuring a Libertarian that shows why it's such a failure...



    Once you've seen this, let's discuss.

    I agree.

    I have no patience with Libertarians.

    All kinds of people today call themselves “libertarians,” especially something calling itself the New Right, which consists of hippies, except that they’re anarchists instead of collectivists. But of course, anarchists are collectivists. Capitalism is the one system that requires absolute objective law, yet they want to combine capitalism and anarchism. That is worse than anything the New Left has proposed. It’s a mockery of philosophy and ideology. They sling slogans and try to ride on two bandwagons. They want to be hippies, but don’t want to preach collectivism, because those jobs are already taken. But anarchism is a logical outgrowth of the anti-intellectual side of collectivism. I could deal with a Marxist with a greater chance of reaching some kind of understanding, and with much greater respect. The anarchist is the scum of the intellectual world of the left, which has given them up. So the right picks up another leftist discard. That’s the Libertarian movement.

    LOL, libertarianism isn't a form a government, it's a philosophy based on the non-aggression principle. :rolleyes:

    There is no libertarian stance on abortion, some libertarians are "pro-choice", some are "pro life" and some don't give a flying fuck about the issue , it depends on how the individual libertarian interprets the application of the non-aggression principle to the question.

    As usual Timmy you thought wrong.

    Progressives like Marc live in a binary world. If you aren't one of them you are an enemy and an inferior.

    That's even worse!

    It's a buncha school-boy academic mumbu-jumbo nonsense that's being peddled as serious policy.

    Dayum!

    Listen to the debate, then respond with where the Libertarian and the progressive were right and/or wrong.
