But,

Each individual has a vested interest. These interests vary hugely from living a simple life to wanting to be rich and powerful to being violent and aggressive.

The powerful types will always try and rig whatever the system is by using any method, including twitter, to enable their goals.

Another words. Whatever the laws and the system the power hungry types will always bend them and find a way to get what they want.

Libertarianism and anarchy are not even ugly cousins of each other.

There has to be a machinery of state. Anyone who doesn't believe that is an idiot. You would have Lord of the Flies without a properly functioning state.

But the job of the state is not to 'pick winners' in the free market with taxpayers money (eg the Phoenix Four and the attempt to revive MG).

It's not to bail out banks that have gone bust through malpractice and incompetence.

It's not to entrench monpolies and hand out knighthoods to oligarchs.

It's not to head off to Davos for three days of behind closed doors meetings with CEOs of big companies finding new ways to rig the market.

Crony capitalism is a disgrace, an abomination. The job of the state should be to criminalise and punish cronyism, corruption and monopoly behaviour. There should be long prison sentences for anyone who breaks competition law or engages in fraud - not just capitalists but civil servants and politicians too.

As I have said before, all lobbying, in fact all contact between private sector and state sector should be filmed and put on YouTube for pubic viewing so we can see what these businesses and asking for and what is being handed over to them in our name. With 10 years in prison for anyone violating that rule.

A a stroke it would hobble the ability of big businesses to rig the market.

If you're interested in this idea then there's a good book on it called Anarchy State and Utopia by Robert Nozick.

Its quite a dry read but interesting.

Infidel is suggesting his vision has never been applied as we don't have free markets.
This is true but there is quite a possibility that in a totally free society the viscous mobs would take over.

AHA like any ism.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Fact is that none of the "isms" work for the greater good whether it be communism or way across to Randism. Whichever ism holds sway at the time wealth migrates to the one percenters and right now the version of capitalism we are enduring favours the one percenters greatly.

Not just Rand.

Hayek. Friedman. Ida Tarbell.

Libertarianism is a not a monotheistic religion. It's a philosophy of life based on reality, and especially the realities of human behaviour.

Socialism, Marxism, Communism, and all other forms of collectivism require human beings to be a different species, willing to subordinate their own interests to the good of the collective.

In every single experiment with collectivism - and there have been around 20 since the first one in 1917 - the result has been economic collapse and totalitarianism. There are no exceptions.

People, human beings, just will not agree to put the collective ahead of themselves and their families.

When they refuse, as they always do, the Marxists start rounding them up and killing them, on the grounds that they just don't know what's good for them.

Libertarians take human beings for what they are. In a libertarian world all that self interest is harnessed in a way that benefits the whole of society, making everyone better off. It's the essence of the free market.

We don't really know how it will work because it's never been tried. Every manifestation of the free market has succumbed to cronyism, anti-competitive practice, monopolies and state intervention, which together entrench the advantages of the big players and crush the innovators and entrepreneurs who are the lifeblood of the market system.

This is why Ayn Rand is so important, because she devoted her life to exposing corruption, cronyism and monopoly behaviour. She was right. We have a crony capitalist system today that I probably despise even more than you do.

We both want a revoliution. The difference is my revolution would bring liberty, freedom and prosperity and yours would turn us into Venezuela.

Zamir Cajee has more reason than most to be jolly for this Christmas. Cajee, whose online retail business iQualTech sells headphones, speakers and chargers from Tooting, south London, has seen his overseas sales surge by more than 50 per cent over the last six months, including the pre-holiday shopping season. His secret sauce? Brexit.

The plunge in the value of the pound since the UK voted to quit the European Union has boosted his exports.

Cajee says: “At first I was disappointed with the referendum result because the instability is bad for business, but things are looking up. We have accelerated exports to Germany, Italy, Spain, France, eastern Europe and Scandinavia by accepting more currencies, shipping to more cities and printing multilingual packages. “The opportunities in Brexit Britain are significant.”

Macron is too young and inexperienced to be President.

It's the fashion these days - Trudeau in Canada, Kurz in Austria, Ardern in New Zealand - all in their 30s and completely unqualified to have such serious responsibiilties.

If Churchill had been 35 in 1940 we would have lost the war.

Why would Merkel back Cameron on anything let alone immigration controls in the UK.

Extraordinary levels of ferocious nitwittery claiming Merkel is a “liability” right there.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
I snorted reading Merkels remarks. She said similar when she promised Cameron she'd help stop Juncker from being commission President and then supported him.

Then during the Cameron negotiations she said where there's a will there's a way, implied she would support immigration controls and did nothing of the sort.

The woman's a liability and cannot be trusted. At leasr Macorn is consistent.

The EU haven't actually given us a bill yet, have they, so any delay is entirely down to their stalling.
