Libertarianism, an extremely dangerous fadLibertarianism, an extremely dangerous fad

(5:16) Who in their right mind likes to be told what they can or can't do? In an ideal world, everybody could do whatever they pleased - no rules, no regulations, no laws, no government wasting our hard-earned cash! - and the results would benefit all because people care about each other. But in the real world, freedom means the freedom for the rich and powerful to exploit the poor for their own self benefit. And this they do with relish and obscene success. EvelJustin Jones argues against the holy grail of freedom and liberty.

This is what you get with a redneck surviving on too many bumper stickers. Let's see if I've got him right: Evil rich people got us in the war with Afghanistan for profit motive and Libertarian idiots want to get us out of that war because they favor the w... er... profits... no, wait, they don't favor... um. What was I saying?

In 2002, Lockheed Martin spent $7.2 million on lobbying. The amount rose steadily since then to $15.1 million in 2011, although there was a peak in 2008 when they spent $16 million. Do you really believe Lockheed Martin have no influence in the decision to go to war?

Latest comment: If he had actually read the works of Hayek or Nozick this video would be very different. They are the modern fathers of libertarianism, and do not believe that the government has no role to play. They accept the fact that the government has to regulate and protect its citizens to an extent - such as in the court of law. 'Small government' does not mean 'no government'. The government does not have responsibility, PEOPLE have responsibility.
