I haven't and I don't know when they were made but I agree with them 100%....
Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.

I saw an article about a 67 year old guy that has never bathed in his life. He lives alone among some rocks somewhere. He cooks on dried dung and as for lice, I don't know maybe he ate them like baboons due while grooming. Feral animals were around his quarters too.
Here's what we've learned so far from our libertarian friends about what makes their system so desirable. A libertarian society...
would rather face global extinction from a killer asteroid than tax its citizens for a planetary defense shield.
would permit de facto slavery.
would prefer people die of hunger, exposure and medical care than ever tax its citizens to provide such services if charity were insufficient.
has no plans for, nor would they tax for, public health... not even clean drinking water or sewage disposal.
This might be a flagrant hot button title and I think it should be. Jon Stewart's retirement prompted much 'self hating jew' rhetoric on a few message boards and youtubes. Bibi wants all Jews to retreat and come to Israel [which is minority jewish majority arab].
His recent political ploy for re-election seeking alignment with the war mongers of the GOP might not play well.
This is a legitimate employer-employee dispute. Keep in mind, longshoremen have one of the toughest unions.
Obama to intervene in West Coast port dispute: reports
Someone is going to great lengths to escalate the Ukraine conflict. Look at the big picture people! NATO is trying to set up on Russia's doorstep which they said they wouldn't do after the breakup of the Soviet Union. Look at how we freaked out with missiles in Cuba! It would be like Canada setting up a security agreement with China. We would be very unhappy.
Libertarians like LS live in a black and white world without shades of grey. For example he recently said that any form of taxation... I believe it was so government could feed the hungry, turned those taxed into "slaves". So in his libertarian paradise... libertarian morality dictates starvation, maybe mass starvation, is preferable to taxation. He also admitted that even if earth's very survival was threatened by an asteroid, it would be immoral to tax the public... thus raising the question whether libertarian is a death cult.

Name me all of the monopolies that formed without the help of the government.
I can name a few government fostered monopolies. First class mail, Robert Fulton's steamship monopoly and your local cable company. Let's not forget the monopoly that ALL progressives support; government.
Gee- I can't figure out why the Mideast dislikes the US.

Given that our antidemocratic amendment process gives a mere 3.5% of the US population a veto over ANY reform no matter how desirable, I've often criticized here Move To Amend not having a Plan B.
But what should it be?
