The difference is that I FULLY ADMIT that my libertarianism is
PHILOSOPHY not science. So far as I can tell philosophers have never
been asked to prove anything. Scientists... well. The interesting
thing to me is that nobody has ever tried the experiment of full
libertarianism, while nearly every other hypothetical governmental
form has been tried with varying degrees of success. The early USA is
the closest approximate, and it led to a great nation that then turned
its back on its roots, IMHO.
