### Well, yes - real libertarianism is "live and let live", and this also
implies "live and let die". I am not my brother's keeper. Removal of legal
sanctions for using and selling dangerous drugs would certainly facilitate
infliction of self-harm, and some people who are too timid to use drugs now
might become victims of their own stupidity - well, so what? We may offer
good advice in the spirit of the good Samaritan but if this advice is not
heeded, I do not feel guilty for whatever happens. The only situation where
this does not apply is of course children and other wards but that's a
different story.
