"your freedom to swing your arms ends at my nose"?

what a great metaphor. I'm sorry that I haven't heard/read that before -- I read most of what I can that Ryan writes -- but I will use that now.

Extreme libertarianism leads to anarchy. Drive as fast as you like, too bad if your car is too small and doesn't protect you, buy a tank then. Can't afford a lifesaving operation -- I guess you should've worked harded to earn more money. What many Libertarians don't understand is that social cooperation is needed to build roads and hospitals and to create a functioning society of harmony and equity. However the words "social" and "cooperation" wrongly invoke thoughts of the USSR and big governments controlling our lives.
