'Libertarianism' is as stupid and unworkable as 'communism', neither are what they purport to be and I can't be bothered arguing with either.
That and Jay is possibly the most hypocritical and intellectually dishonest person I have ever encountered, spouting Libertarianism having spent his formative years doing workfare for the government, had his education paid for by a govt he despises using taxes he objects to, and sitting in a highly regulated and well-protected industry which faces no threat from foreign competition in probably the highest taxed, most highly governed and least Libertarian part of the tax-and-spend experiment in mass-delusion which is America.
