But when the majority votes to trample the rights of the minority, then rights are not protected. That's why we have laws.Government does not exist in a vacuum - it has to give the people what they want. It will only be able to protect the rights that the people want protected. It's the sad truth and is why libertarianism is a joke - it fails to take the human equation into account just as Marxism does.
And that's a form of libertarianism. Libertarianism is not anarchism.We are all statists. Accept it and find an ideology that works with human nature. I personally suggest the platform espoused by Ron Paul (that one's for Jallman).
And an ad-hominem to finish it off.But more importantly, drop the statist shtick. You sound like a high school kid when you throw that overused buzz word around.
