Ok that cultural which has existed in reality as depicted by either Johnson or Stossel is???? What? Isn't any - made up. Fiction. Doesn't exist - never has - never will. Plus every word is true You really can't run away from reality by pretending there is a libertarian Eden waiting for anyone who believes in fantasy and make believe

All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.

I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
