That's a nice argument! ;-)
One of the natural end points of libertarian thinking is that everyone
has to be monitored, to track the costs they are incurring, so they can
But of course, the government should not do the monitoring, and instead
each person must carry around some kind of device to count the people
who need to be made to pay....
So all these motorists in London each have to carry some kind of device
in their car so that when a pedestian tries to use the road and slow
them down, the motorist can somehow get money out of them: "You want to
cross in front of my car? There's a toll!".
So what is the device that will let them do this? Ah, yes, a gun.
