The Failure of Libertarian Politics

Every so often a simple phrase encapsulates an issue so neatly that no more needs to be said. One of my personal favorites is the reason the war on drugs will always be a failure. Jim Henley has neatly knocked one out of the park about why libertarians, in general, fail at politics:

there are slightly more versions of libertarianism than there are libertarians

There you have it. Forging a practical political movement out of that mess is at least an order of magnitude more difficult than herding cats.
