People keep saying Libertarianism looks great on paper. But it doesn’t even look good there. It only feels good to macho testosterone driven people who don’t want to use any of that gray matter upstairs. No solution to the world’s problems is as easy as a sweeping idea of “Get rid of the rules!” just as we don’t even think it’s solved by “Impose a bunch of rules!” Rules for rules sake doesn’t work. Know what works worse? Deregulation for deregulation sake. Because what you see above represents the Great Depression, the abuse of millions of workers and children forced to slave away, and oh yeah, slavery. None of which helped us get anywhere as a society.
