Video Note: Penn discusses (rants) about the illogical corn subsidies in America. I happen to agree with Penn on this specific issue but I am personally not a Libertarian; honestly I posted this mainly because I found it entertaining. Try and remember that Penn is an entertainer, so don't take this too seriously (see crazy comments) should you disagree.

Libertarians are crazy or stupid or both. Penn and Teller are simply being obtuse in this video. Corn subsidies don't define government, and they don't mean that government should not regulate commerce.  "The Atlantic" ran a great article illustrating that Libertarians--especially the wacko anti-government extremists--are wrong:  "Jesse Willms, the Dark Lord of the Internet" http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2014/01/the-dark-lord-of-the-internet/355726/

Yeah don't regulate capitalism, free enterprise can solve all it's own problems. How the fuck you could still believe corporate america doesn't have to have it's legs kicked out periodicly after 2008 confuses me. But I still like Ron Paul even though his politics are savage.

Communist society, tax money goes in, tax money wasted on useless jobs and inefficient spending, money that comes out to spend on the population is less then what was put in. If we got rid of the middle man, we could have the money come out more efficiently. Because the money isn't being used to run the government in the first place, more money to spend on bread.

If a poor person needs medicine for $3000, but cannot pay it, then asks a rich person for the money. The rich guy says "Nah, i'd rather spend the $3000 on french truffles and cat poop coffee". I support the right of the poor person, or anyone else, to take the money off the rich guy to pay for the treatment. I don't give a damn if it's stealing. This poor guy's life is more important than the rich guy's truffles and cat crap coffee.

I wonder why this guy hadn't move to Somalia? That is the Libertarian paradise. There isn't no government, no taxes, no law. He would love that place, if he ever could survive the first day.

An argument from anecdote is hardly the basis for the establishment of a political manifesto. Libertarianism makes the same mistake that communism makes, but in the opposite direction. They hold to the false dilemma that you must choose between the good of the individual or the good of society, as if these could be strictly separated. They reach the same result, totalitarianism (one by government, the other by oligarchy).
