My posts of October 18, 19, and 20 of 2010 proved that Libertarianism as a doctrine for government and the economy simply is fundamentally flawed both in theory and practice. Here are the links:
The axiomatic basis of Libertarianism is wrong: maximal freedom does NOT maximise happiness.
Libertarianism seems "good" on some measures in a static, time static world, but it fails in a dynamic world when changes can occur over time.
Libertarianism leads to a world dominated by Vikings, whether in reality or metaphorically.
Feudalism arises from Libertarianism: the rich and powerful enserf the common man and woman. The Vikings who have looted from the people create a new aristocracy for themselves and their descendants.
Toss unrestrained Libertarianism onto the junk heap of history. All talk using its principles should be viewed in the same light as Marxist talk: simply wrong and worthless in any argument.
Word of the Day
"Abnegate" - verb [$10] and "Abnegation" - noun [$10]
Abnegate means 1. to give up or deny oneself (a pleasure, etc.); 2. renounce or reject.
Abnegation means 1. denial; the rejection or renunciation of a doctrine; 2. = self-denial.
Sentence: Intellectual honesty mandates the abnegation of Libertarianism by its adherents. Libertarians! Bunkerman calls on you to abnegate your doctrine; it's a failure and fundamentally flawed in theory and practice.
