Libertarians must be so stupid that they don’t even “understand liberty,” says Matt Bruenig.
Matt accuses libertarians of not realizing that a libertarian legal environment will, just like a statist regime, use violence (such as from a minimal state) in law enforcement.
Well, of course it will.
However, the libertarian violence will be justly used, according to the natural human right to own property and set the rules for its use by other people; and statist violence, unjustly used, wrongfully violating said natural rights. How hard is that to “understand”?
Is Matt being a troll for a reason?
