So there are several flavors of libertarians it seems, but what I'm looking for is opinions on the ron paul and more extreme libertarians. I honestly think they're delusional, but what do you guys think?
That being said as a Political ideology I do indeed subscribe to it. In theory it sounds great, no Government interfering with your lives, allowing you to be your own man making your own decisions. But in reality it wouldn't go so well without someone to provide fire protection and pave our roads.
In my opinion, Libertarians are living in some fantasy world where no government and no regulation of any kind will somehow produce some sort of Utopia. They have this Darwinian idea that "survival of the fittest" will make for a prosperous society without looking at the ugly side of humanity and what would really happen with no control or societal infrastructure support. I see Libertarians as potentially dangerous should they ever gain acceptance into the main stream of politics.
Ron Paul is a quack! Seriously, I completely agree with what you are saying that these Libertarians have this Darwinistic ideology that no government is the best way to rule. Only the strong survive for that matter. Actually, if there were no government then only the strong would survive as anarchy would surely ensue. I personally think that no government would be great in theory, but you are banking on the honesty of mankind. hahaha how fallible is that? Truthfully, if we just strive to better ourselves and the people around us then the passion is sure to rub off. That is actually what me and m buddy are trying to do with these snowboarding trips. I just hope it works as we are in need of what Obama so eloquently says, "Change."
