Here’s Why I’m NOT a Libertarian

This fellow’s argument amounts to a rejection of natural rights, free will, and the view that individuals can really be “self-made” (all of which I agree with) and an embrace of Hobbesian social contract theory plus Rawls’ veil of ignorance theory, which amounts to an endorsement of social democracy. The problem I have with his arguments is that he does not discuss the actual critiques of the state that anarchist and libertarian thinkers have advanced beyond mere “taxation is theft” simplicity.
