…because in the Libertarian Utopia, businesses that refuse to serve minorities will suffer and theoretically go out of business.

The problem is, in something called Reality, a large number of hateful people in certain geographic areas can band together in their actions and refuse service to entire groups of people and effectively shut them out of the local mainstream society.

We’ve been through this before. Social unrest and violence always rear their head, and spiral into situations where the Federal Government has to intervene.
And intervene it will regardless of the Libertarian Utopianist’s concept of State’s Rights. It’s mind-boggling how some people view real actual History as something that just doesn’t exist. The pipe dream of a Libertarian Utopia ignores real actual history and the lessons it has taught us over hundreds of years.

Good news is that people like this are a minority, still I would hope that would be lower by now. One out of ten is still kind of high.

Especially when the bigots get a force multiplier effect from supposed non-bigots that vote GOP.

Silly silly silly.

You know in Libertopia the socio-political and economic situation of a certain region are never ever to be taken into account when discussing the MARKET’s effect on them.

Seriously these people are so much more comparable to Marxists than run of the mill liberals are its insane.

Only absolutes, never a nuance.
