And abandon the culture war parts and the war on drugs. So in Libertopia you choose between starving in the street or earning your right to live by rimming your capitalist overlords if you're lucky enough to find a capitalist overlord who wants rimming, rentacops are the only cops, and you can't afford medical care, but you can marry who you want and spend your free time tripping balls to escape.

Basically. Don't get me wrong, I agree the government should be more hands off when it comes to cultural issues, but as you say, the end result is madness. Or it's especially so when they do what the capital-L Libertarians do and forget that you then have to do all this stuff at the state level, which means massive state-level tax increases.

And you didn't see many Libertarians heading for Somalia during their period of no government, did you?
