Failed libertarian

Unsurprising psychological study of libertarians:
1. Libertarians will value liberty more strongly and consistently than liberals or conservatives, at the expense of other moral concerns.
2. Libertarians will rely upon emotion less – and reason more – than will either liberals or conservatives.
3. Libertarians will be more individualistic and less collectivist compared to both liberals and conservatives.
That explains why I wanted to be a libertarian, though I have long since decided that a lot of problems such as Tragedy of the Commons, Coordination Problem, Externalities, etc., keep it from working.

Thanx to andrewducker
