  •  Another way of putting the idea (1+ / 0-)

    that the libertarian paradise is inherently unstable.  Eventually power will be concentrated, and in a libertarian system without a democratic government that can make rules, the concentrated power will be unaccountable.

    There is no perfect system, pure socialism or pure capitalism or any other pure system will not work.  We need a mixed system that can adapt to reality as needed.  Easier said than done, but nothing else has a chance.
