Sample text

What could be more gruesome than that? In a libertarian society, charitable organizations or sympathetic individuals, like yourself, might choose to pay the aggressor's debt to the victim, especially if the aggressor was truly repentant. A victim might occasionally relieve an aggressor of their debt. Imagine that a drunk driver hits your car, killing your spouse. The driver is devastated by what he has done and never takes another drink after that fateful day. Instead, he often goes to schools to tell his story, begging the young people not to drink and drive.

Of course, we ban reckless drivers from the roadway today by taking away their license. Qyite a few of them simply drive without one. In a libertarian society, reckless drivers would have a more difficult time getting back on the road. Q Even though independent companies may own the roads, one company may own the entire tracking system. This company could persuade, or pressure, all the road owners to startfining people. A cartel or monopoly could dominate this vital industry. A Since fining customers would be very unpopular, it's likely that the road companies would create their own tracking system if a competing one weren't available.

If the victim is made whole, isn't the debt fully paid? While I agree with the fundamentals of libertarianism, I am afraid that, at this stage ofthe human evolutionary process, most people couldn't handle completefreedom. How many people do you know who, when about to take a specific action, would stop and think whether or not their action would have an undesirable resultfor someone else? Q People think about how their actions affect others when they experience the fallout. Libertarianism creates this link when those who harm others must make full restitution.
