    Your definition of pragmatism is so large that by your logic anyone who drives a car is a pragmatist who believes it's OK to run over little kids every now and then.

    You can't make a legitimate libertarian argument in favor of forcing people to bake a cake. Neither can you make a libertarian argument in favor of banning a plant, you can advocate locking people up for possessing a leaf all you want but its not libertarianism. Its not Christian either for that matter, preventing people with life threatening seizures from getting treatment that works.

    I should add if such a situation happens the owner of the property destroyed should be compensated.

    Well that depends what we're talking about. If you see someone about to be killed in a locked house or building I would advocate rescuing them regardless of the destruction to personal property you cause. Because life is the greatest and most sacred right trumping other property rights. I guess in some ways that might make me a pragmatist to some but to me its a no brainer. But I'm not going to endorse specific greater good government policies. Those never seem to work for the greater good. Hindsight is 20/20 they say. There are a few problems with this kind of example. 1, outlawing and executing rebels both good and bad has been the policy of most governments since the dawn of time and it doesn't always work. Often it just emboldens their sympathizers. So in theory its easy to say outlawing Bolshevism would have averted the Russian Revolution but in practice we will never know. Especially since trying to carry it out probably would have ended up in some of the minions losing their lives and not the bigwigs like Stalin and Lenin. 2, how would you apply that in the real world? We have disagreements with supporters authoritarians on all sides of the spectrum. We know certain of the masses tend towards supporting their leaders no matter what evil they do. This doesn't mean that trying to wipe out supporters of bad policies is moral. Nor does it mean it will be effective. Yeah, I don't really accept the premise. You say in your scenario there will be collateral damage as if there's nothing else to be done. With any situation like that you do your best to ensure innocents are not hurt. If they are you screwed up. If your wife was going to be near where Hitler was you sure as hell would find a safer time and place, so don't give me this innocents must die or Hitler destroys humanity crap. I don't buy it. Certainly in war and such things that are things that are done that put innocent people at risk. That's why war and violence are so terrible. But even then if moral people are acting they will try to minimize the risk towards innocents. If I thought there was a chance he's innocent I wouldn't support punishing him. So you must have a lower burden of proof for "reasonable doubt". If there is a chance he is innocent I think the justice system if it is true to its name would look for evidence he is innocent and overturn his conviction if any is found. This mindset we have these days that everyone has to be found guilty or not guilty and that's the end of it is sick. It should be about the truth whenever it comes out.

    No. I mean unless the fact that some people use guns to do crime makes you torn between being a second amendment activist and a Moms Demand lackey.

    Yes. We need to Make the War on Drugs Great Again. If we catch them all and deport the bad ones and only let the good ones back in we will finally have successful prohibition policy that works.:cool:

    With those kinds of costs insurance isn't worth it for some people. Just go without it and if something bad happens oh well, hopefully the Docs will still save your life even if you can't pay. Beats living in a hovel in fear all your life sending all of your little paycheck as protection money to the cartel. And yes, as has been pointed out this will get the masses clambering for Single Payer instead of getting the government out as it should.:mad:

    Well, its time Amash learned it too. I feel like he didn't have my back here. I'm all for giving our guys some slack because we're all they got but I've got to say this was a big let down.:( More than any of my slight disagreements with Rand.
