Fuck jason..you think you're technically correct about everything..it must be that libertarian gene shit.. You better see a doctor about that. :roll:

Yes, libertarians have this "We're technically right, the best kind of right" attitude about them, but there's little evidence that the Feds wouldn't be just as bad, if not worse, if they were doing this without contractors.

Zarus, you're a Jason clone aren't you? it wouldn't surprise me one bit if liberatarians favored contracting a company out at tax payer expense to rewrite the constitution to better reflect the desires of market forces.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

White privilege is being a lifelong racist, then being sent to the White House twice because your running mate is a minority.

No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA!

Fuck no, I'm a technocrat/pragmatist. Every command economy we've seen so far has been a failure. There's a chance that one could work with modern-day artificial intelligence and real-time monitoring of hundreds of thousands of economic and sociological indicators, but I wouldn't trust the average bureaucrat to be able to multiply two 3-digit numbers by hand, much less understand even the basics of such a system.

Whatever..the topic really isn't about your hardons for privatizing everything. It's about fundamental justice.

Exactly.  I'm a libertarian, and I am firmly against this contracting-out of justice.

Not only do we think that government does have purpose, many of us also believe that some jobs are solely the job of the public government.

More specifically, probably a democratic government with strong constitutional controls and a well-armed public. Although it would be really interesting to see what would happen if the "justice" system ceased to exist altogether in any form, public or private. Belgium's government collapsed and precisely nothing happened, so in all likelihood things would go on more or less as they always have.
