A libertarian capitalist society would be inclined to have the same or
even more draconian laws for property crime as presently exist. For
example, why should you pay to lock criminals up for years when it's
easier and - more importantly - cheaper to kill them? Although to give
the libertarians credit where it is due, they do tend to be opposed to
laws against victimless crimes, such as anti-drug laws.
