Rethinking Libertarianism & Socialism

The situation in New Orleans is forcing me to rethink my libertarian tendencies.

It’s always wrong to use events with special situations to form broad based beliefs and principles, but acts of nature with the tragic results like what is happening in New Orleans is a glimpse of an extreme situation that reveals the expected results of an extreme ideology.

The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina demonstrates the futility of complete dependence on government for care by the citizens of a society and also the unreasonableness of pure and complete freedom.

Anyone else longing for heaven today?
