Here's an entertaining one minute video on Somalia: Libertarian Paradise - Libertarian magic dust indeed!
Libertarians are magical thinkers, relying on the kindness and altruism of the necessarily sociopathic corporate leviathans we have created and fed, at our tremendous peril. Libertarians don't know a damn about economics, and are oblivious that the so-called Free Market altars they worship at are far from free, relying on the fantasy of equal power, wealth, and knowledge of both buyers and sellers. ‘Corporate people’ - the Fortune 500 in particular - spit in the face of flesh-and-blood (or to use the legalese, ‘natural people’) on all three counts. Somalia is an unlikely parallel, but our democratic government is the only thing that keeps us from being China or Russia - poisoned and robbed by the rich and powerful much more than we already are. Thank God the GOP is pissing off everyone but straight Anglo males over 30.
Libertarians typically haven't noticed that they are lied to by Big Media, poisoned by Big Energy, conned by Wall Street, and fattened and sickened by Big Ag - but if they have, they think that less regulation will magically fix those problems, that the vast majority of Americans will reallocate their copious free time to keep tabs on Exxon and Goldman Sachs and be more effective at it than our federal government. Alternatively, they believe in a false equivalence between Democrats and Republicans, in the face of over three decades of GOP reverse-Robin Hood policies and deliberate incompetence. Government is only the problem when the GOP is in charge - and that is their intention.
Libertarians think that schools, Medicare, and Social Security should be privatized, increasing our reliance on the monopolists and the plutocrats, and leaving nothing for the police to do but enforce the property rights of the wealthy and powerful. Leave the poor, sick, and the old to fend for themselves: it will reduce the surplus population. Libertarianism is the road to serfdom.
Military aside, if you don't think a substantial government the size we have now is a boon to the common good, to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, you're willfully ignorant, a know-nothing, and part of the problem. Now if we had strong anti-trust laws and corporations were much smaller and could be sentenced to death, I might - just might - be willing to shrink government. I'm not holding my breath on those anti-trust laws, though. In the meantime, you have cholera.
