we'd be broke no mater who ran it. Liberals would take us down due to increased handouts.
  

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, when I was dead broke I couldn't picture this.

Well this could be answered in two ways, the minarchist way with minimal government or the anarcho-capitalist variety.

We have done anarchy to death so I'll answer in the minarchist vein.

A libertarian controlled government would limit itself to protecting people from invasion, theft, and other forms of trespass against their body or property.

It would tax people only to protect them in this way. Otherwise they would have to voluntarily pool their own funds and pay for the services they wanted.

There would be no controls on prices or wages. No laws criminalizing consensual acts among consenting adults- meaning no war on drugs, no blue laws, and no laws against prostitution or gambling.

This is not to say society itself would not have norms and means of creating costs for these sorts of vices, but they wouldn't be imposed at the point of a gun.

The only norms that would be imposed at the point of a gun would be those rooted in defending person and property.

Civil society would take a much larger role in public life, as people would need to associate to solve many public questions which today are solved through political forms of decision making, in a top down fashion.

The libertarian form of government would leave people free to make these decisions on their own, so that norms and institutions bubble up from the bottom, in an emergent and evolutionary order rather than something that was consciously planned and designed.

Thank you for your response, TL. Give me some time to hire a smart person to translate it for me, and I'll get back to you. Smiley

Thanks.

If any part hangs you up, just ask. I'll try to explain it in simpler terms.
  

"Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist." J M Keynes

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard

life would be awesone.

Everything would be free. Free college, free healthcare etc and none of it would cost us anything. There would be no guns anywhere because super awesome gun control laws would take all guns off the street. Freedom of religion would be paramount as long as your religion is the government or Islam. Israel would cease to exist. Every household must house at least one immigrant family unless said family lives on either coast. They are then exempt. Hillary Clinton's birthday will be a national holiday and everyone who didn't vote for her will be sent to reeducation camps called "Hillary Hostels". All hostile nations would cease to be hostile because we are nice to them.

There would be no gender. Anyone can use any bathroom dressed as anything they want. No flags. no statues and no literature before 1980 will be allowed, anywhere. Ted Kennedy's history will be rewritten and Barrack Obama's presidential library will be moved to Mecca. Roll Eyes

Wealth would be frowned upon but allowed because they will be taxed at 98%. Rich republicans will be assigned a democrat led city to bail out Because it's their fault the democrats failed. Everyone will have a house and a six figure income paid for by republicans that had the audacity to succeed on their own merits. Personal accomplishments will be replaced with group hugs. Overachievers will be punished.

Free speech is allowed as long as no one is ever offended.



BERRRRRRRTTTTTTTTT!!! 😘
