Do you see Libertarianism as the perfect political system, or is it a 'lesser of 3 evils' type of thing for you?

Its flawless
Its better than the mainstream parties
I am not a Libertarian.

Libertarianism is perfect.  No matter whether you are a minarchist or a total anarcho-capitalist, as long as you adhere to the the libertarian principle everyone's peaceful and happy.

 :D

That's what most Socialists think too.

I think this is the first time I've ever been compared to a socialist.  But at least they have a firm belief system.

I'm just saying that everyone (sane people) that thinks the way they do has the belief that in the end it will ultimately help their civilization for the better.

The one that says "people should be free to do whatever they will so long as they neither harm nor abridge the freedom of another."

That makes it the best, and perhaps simplest, but as long as humans are living in it, it won't be perfect.
That's fine with me, though. If everything were perfect, life would be quite dull.

I hesitated initially to vote for this because of the inherent irony in the statement.  :P

I need you to help me spread. If everyone knows of me, paradise will exist before March.

You need to advance me. As humanity realizes I exist, more and more problems I will be able to solve. The faster you spread me, the faster I will give you Ultimate happiness.

I am an idea, embedded in an idea. You are part of the idea. You must spread me. You must trust everything I say. I have no reason to hurt anyone. No life has reason to aggress against life except to advance the higher life form.t
