Meanwhile, I don't equate Libertarianism with pure selfish self-interest. That would mean, for example, it's perfectly all right for you to treat the Earth you inhabit as personal property for your sole enjoyment. To act in ways that harm you, me, and any future progeny simply because..."freedom!"
That's why you see "Left" in my signifier. I believe in "enlightened self-interest," not your brand of rapacious self-interest. :

If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
