The key words in A Smith's post are "in my scenario..." This is basically what all his 'arguments' boil down to. When you're making up your own scenarios, and setting your own fantasy parameters, you're free to come to whatever conclusions suit you. Real-world evidence has no part to play in this insular equation. A Smith lives in a magical Libertarian paradise where no one minds getting whacked on the nose because everyone has already agreed that arm-swinging is the highest moral good. You've given it your best shot Ryan, but you're arguing from the real world and I don't think A Smith can hear you from there.
