Pocket Ninja: Libertarians are the atheists of the political world, in that many of them will loudly and frequently tell you they are that thing, but a very small percentage of them -- a miniscule amount, really -- actually know what being that thing means. Most of them have chosen to self-label as a reaction to something else, not out of conscious selection, and almost none of them can identify more than the most patently obvious truisms about their "chosen" belief system. They know what they've been told, or what they've read about being told, and that's about it.


Yeah, it took me YEARS of intense study to memorize all the tenets of atheism, and that's just the beginning... I'm still trying to understand the Scriptures better.

FTFA:  "libertarianism is the idea that people should be as free as possible from state coercion so long as they don't harm anyone."

There's the ad hominem diversion I was waiting for. No need to evaluate and debate an idea when we can dismiss it because we don't like its proponents. Hitler was a vegetarian, so people who like lettuce are fascists, etc.

I've never met anybody who has actually read "Wealth of Nations." All they know is, "Hurr, Adam Smith said that by being selfish the invisible hand would make everybody better off, durr." When, in fact, that is wrong. In the entire book the phrase "invisible hand" occurs exactly once. Intrinsic to Smith's argument is the necessity for supporting domestic industry.

In fact, Smith felt that opening up wages across borders would be detrimental to domestic economies. Nonetheless, we have done just that while the 1% praise Smith all the way to the bank and the rubes think that it'll trickle down to them at some future point.

Pursuing self interest only works when, by an invisible hand (patriotism, perhaps?), people support domestic industry. Bet they didn't teach you that in any of your Economics courses.


"As every individual, therefore, endeavours as much as he can, both to employ his capital in the support of domestic industry, and so to direct that industry that its produce maybe of the greatest value; every individual necessarily labours to render the annual revenue of the society as great as he can. He generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain; and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention. Nor is it always the worse for the society that it was no part of it. By pursuing his own interest, he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it. I have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good. It is an affectation, indeed, not very common among merchants, and very few words need be employed in dissuading them from it."Adam Smith, "Wealth of Nations"
