To Be, Or Not To Be...Libertarian

Most of my friends know that to associate with me entails catch the occasional hand grenade. This post is one of those weapons. Now, I will say that the author focuses strictly on the economic implications of libertarianism, or laissez-faire capitalism, and doesn't touch social libertarianism (which I find much more important, and infinitely easier to defend). While I'm most definitely a capitalist, I do appreciate anyone who's willing to recognize the dangers of being an ideologue. That means people will just have to deal with a little cognitive dissonance...including me.
