The Ethics and Efficacy of Libertarianism

As a great painting has many colors, a great democracy has many viewpoints. Libertarianism helps to make our democracy great by reminding us that individual liberties are essential to a free and well-ordered society. However, so much of the Libertarian position depends on the free market to ensure the good faith of the actors in the marketplace that if you take away the “protection” of the free market, the door is open wide for a huge number of really terrible outcomes on a social, environmental, nationalistic, and economic perspective.
