Libertarians get most economics right, but they treat social issues as if the accumulated "bank of nations and of ages" as Burke wrote, were irrelevant. They aren't irrelevant; those accumulations of values, morals, notions of sin, attitudes toward oneself, family, community and nation etc. glue societies together and are the foundation of true freedom. Above all libertarianism is based individualism, but where did we get the notion that every individual matters? From that bank of accumulated wisdom.
