Fats -- Yeah, sickening. Libertarians would fix the welfare leakage here. Hmmmm, i wonder if their socialist party haz any good points that might outweigh this sort of krap -- eg perhaps they blocked nuclear power.

But it remindz me that the Libertarians dont want to fix overpopulation (affecting most countryz), and would block any such moov anywhere. I reckon that overpopulation iz the worst problem around, ie worse than welfare $$$$ abuse. I think that the Greens are the only party anywhere (outside china) wanting to stop population growth (not sure really). madMac.

Wow! I don't know how you were able to deduce the global libertarian position on population control, or how it could have been reminded of same from reading the article.. particularly so, since libertarians are not even mentioned in it.

I'm sure that if you asked anyone who truly espouses libertarianism, that they would tell you that they have no problem with population control policies, and methods, which do not involve force or coercion by the state, or any other group.

Do you support coercive government policies?

I reckon that coercion is the only thing that has ever worked anywhere for anything -- or at least some form of carrot &amp; stick. Me, myself, i am not in favour of most freedoms and most democracys -- bring back Royalty i reckon. madMac.
