Are you sure you haven't just gotten a lot redder, Blarchie?
My own views have grown more libertarian, for sure, and the mistake most
people make is equating libertarianism with anarchy. That is false,
libertarians believe in the right amount of government... not too much,
not too little. Canada is on the outer edge of the Goldilocks zone, but
Venezuela is running full tilt boogie off the cliff to a place where the
state is everything to everyone. States with heavy government
involvement in the economy tend to stagnate and shrink. Cuba, for
example, is finally giving control of land back to farmers and domestic
food production is soaring. Venezuela is the only state on the planet
rushing towards Marxism, completely blind to the fact that two-dozen
communist and former communist states are running away from it. China
would be the best example, its state companies were on the brink of
collapse back in the early 90s, due to corruption and mismanagement, and
the market reforms were what saved them. Unfortunately, it had the
perverse effect of keeping the communist regime in power.
