I only know two committed Libertarians, and one of them I don't really know, I've just listened to him talk on the radio and had a couple brief exchanges with him. He's departed, rest his soul.

Both of them believe that people should be left to be Absolutely Free. Both of them, however, also believe that we are mostly surrounded by brutally stupid people.

To me, that combination of conditions sounds like a recipe for disaster.
