This is my bitch with Libertarian thought. It’s as if they completely ignore the 19th and early 20th century in America, as if we did not have a society that lived under Laissez Faire capitalism and suffered because of it. As if we did not have a decade of excess and no regulation that directly led to the most destructive economic period in American history. That was only saved by our entrance to World War II and then continued with democratic socialism.

Libertarians seem to be very heartfelt people with very sincere beliefs that conveniently ignore the period in American history when those beliefs were tested and found to be wanting.
