  •  You can't leave home (0+ / 0-)

    Unless you pay the fee for leaving your property.

    And you can't stay, because others with bigger guns are coming to take your property for themselves.

    What's a libertarian to do?

    •  You call in the private police (1+ / 0-)

      to protect your property (which you pay for with a monthly fee).

      Don't kid yourself. Property "rights" are sacrosanct with these people and would be strongly enforced. They would have a government, but most of this would be privatized and provided by corporations.

      Private courts (arbitration), private cops, private jails, and of course, lots of lawyers.

      If you think about it, the corporations already serve as a quasi government for the majority of the corporate employees.

      •  Yeah, I'm thinking about the little guy (0+ / 0-)

        who thinks he's a libertarian but hasn't thought it all through.

        He's not the one with the private security forces. He'd be lucky to be left with a scrap of land with room for a tiny garden and a couple of chickens to live on.
