This seems to be the overriding thought mechanism I interpret when reading political commentary from professed libertarians on any forum.
the individuals have almost always either been provided for from birth or cling onto the desire that they will indeed get theirs, but i have read few personal examples where such idealism has in fact worked out.
If you consider yourself to lean towards libertarianism, just how well are you succeeding in life without any gov't interference? Are you growing your own food to make sure that it isn't poisoned? Building your own house to ensure the construction quality standards? Generating your own power to make sure you are paying a fair price? Travelling solely on local rural dirt roads to avoid the questionable condition of other vehicles? Paying others to protect your property when you are asleep or away? Breathing self bottled air?
If not, just how would you live an entire life without regulation and govt interference?
