At Endervidualism.

“I suspect some libertarians greatly overestimate how attractive liberty is to today’s Americans. How many young people and college students would happily permit the government to monitor all their e-mail in return for unlimited free music downloads? How many McDonald’s gift certificates would it take to sway a person to pledge never to publicly criticize the president? How many people would happily surrender most of their constitutional rights in return for a president’s promise that he will thereby make them safe? Many Americans are far more interested in being cared for than being left alone. This is why American democracy is becoming one of caretakers and cage keepers, instead of representatives with narrowly prescribed duties.”
