What's with these libertarians, anyway? I see a lot of young people buying into this idiocy, too. I just don't get it.
These are middle-class people, often enough (not just the Koch brothers, who expect their political donations to turn a profit), who don't seem to realize the advantages they've had living in our society. Well, I suppose that fish don't think of water much, either, until it becomes foul.
We have regulations for good reason. As a nation, we've learned what the lack of regulations can do to us. But in many cases, regulations have apparently been so effective that we've forgotten why we have them in the first place.
Or else it's just that faith-based ideology is resistant to the evidence of history. I'd always assumed that we'd learned from the Great Depression, too, but even after 2008 showed the dangers of forgetting all that, Republicans are still pushing to deregulate the banking industry. Well, that's the problem with faith-based thinking.
And libertarian ideology is faith-based. Senator Dunghands von Fecalfingers demonstrates just how ridiculous it really is.
