    No, but a small amount of harm and significant harm are two different things. Business is business.

    It think that he's made his opinion clear. Why do you care?

    Go read the wikipedia page on Minarchism. Then continue to bash Libertarianism to your heart's content.

    I am guessing we both have different opinions on the scope of the harm.

    It probably won't but if keeping it from getting worse while time does its thing is all we can do, than we should do it.

    I realize you want to make me the issue here, but you need to read the OP and comment appropriately.

    Like I stated above, Somalia is a libertarian paradise, you can do almost anything you want there.
    Somalia is a failed state, which was a former authoritarian government.
    Many parts of it operate under sharia law.

    Not exactly libertarian, in fact not libertarian at all.

    My opinion on that has nothing to do with the specific things I said to you.

    I commented on what you said.

    And Cuba is a leftist paradise; you get free health care and everything. See, I can make entirely irrelevant statements, too.

    Yeah. Somolia is more an example of anarchism.

    Somalia is more of an example of the fall out from extreme authoritarian governments, religious states and war .

    Chaos is not created by anarchism itself.

    Are you planning to bring a related point into the discuss, or a failed Clinton policy execution?
