I often sympathize with libertarian philosophies (but not all). I appreciate the idea of valuing individual freedoms, but I feel libertarians often do not have a realistic view of society.
To a libertarian’s ears, saying the government messes up everything seems to be an axiomatic statement. They are right about the government not being perfect. It is a system of human cooperation that is just as fallible as any other human system, but to say the government can’t do anything right is a metaphysical statement—and a silly statement at that.
