Libertarianism: A Still Life

by evanmcmurry

This seems reasonable to me, but then, I’m not a libertarian: “The biggest mistake that libertarians make is the way they view government and private sectors. Government is the root of all evil, and the private sector is the source of all good. Libertarians have never figured out that people are the same whether in the government or in the private sector. They will abuse their power regardless of where they perch. That is why government needs to be tied down by the Constitution and the private sector by regulation. Yes, regulation can go too far. Certainly, deregulation has gone too far.”

(This is no way an endorsement of the rest of the article, which is pretty florid).
