Words Of (Un)Wisdom) – Libertarian Dreamson July 19, 2012 at 4:27 pm
Sometimes it takes a few days for the perfect irony of a statement to sink in. I’m actually quite upset since I can’t find the exact quote but the general outline is this:
Le me: Government regulatory bodies are necessary to curb the abuses of corporations. The FDA keeps food companies from adding poisonous “fillers” to our food. The reason the FDA even exists is because of this practice in the 1800s early 1900s.
The Libertarian: But that wouldn’t be a problem today! People would spread the word through social media so we don’t need the government!
So we don’t need the government because of social media which is run on the internet which was created by the government we don’t need?
