Oh yeah, I'm reading that book—thanks! Like Marxism, libertarianism is a great critical lens, but absurd to enact to the degree that its adherents demand. I remember a blog post from a libertarian lawyer who argued that if a meteor was coming at the earth, proper libertarians would be obliged to resist their national govts seizing resources and banding with other nations to figure out a way to destroy it because it would violate individual property rights. And this wasn't meant to show the absurdity of libertarian purity. Better to die free and all that, I guess.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Libertarianism = legal murder, otherwise it’s not Libertarianism. Past that, we’re talking government interference.
