Libertarianism does not automatically remove corruption from government, nor does it prevent decisions that are made elsewhere from affecting you. All it does is change the people who are making those decisions from the government to businesses. Free from "suffocating regulation", power companies will be free to pump nasty crap into your wonderful Nebraska air. With no "unenforceable laws" mining companies will be free to fill your rivers with run off.

No free market system could ever stop large companies from doing w/e the fark they want. They simply buy up any competition and leave you with none of the choices that espouse will solve everything.

I see you've been drinking the free market koolaid. What`s missing from your calculations is Monopolies. Monopolies occur naturally in a free market and wipe out competition.

You might argue that people can choose not to use such a companies product. Sure, go ahead and go without electricity, running water, or internet. Let`s see how long you prosper in this modern society with out those things.

Free market is a false choice. As the guy explained in the video, profit motives will always win out and big businesses will simply consolidate their power and exercise control over just about everything.

i generally enjoy your views and comments however, i must disagree.

"It's a political "every man for himself" philosophy."

this is not true. maybe as far as individual freedoms and privacy, there is some truth to that statement. however, as far as a "political" and "societal" aspects libertarianism is simply the united sates as it was designed. a country free from uniform policies of suffocating regulations and unenforceable laws. a country free from tariffs and grand corruption. a country where over-privileged, overpaid, and out of touch politicians of D.C. do not make decisions for me in nebraska.

also... the libertarian party is the only true and equal party. liberal socially, conservative fiscally. live and let live; i work for what i get. pretty simple and fair if you ask me. it promotes responsibility instead of this society of blameless finger pointers that we have now. it promotes self-sufficiency as opposed to the welfare state that we find ourselves in. it promotes sound money as opposed to the current decline of our currency and runaway inflation. the question should be; how are more NOT on board?

trying to explain a "problem" that you clearly don't understand is laughable at best.
