Is it desirable to have no working safety laws, banking laws, any type of welfare, or a strong military?
Many people in American history, both liberals and conservatives, have argued for limiting the size of government. Early presidents like Thomas Jefferson, famous philosophers like Henry David Thoreau and modern politicians such as Ron Paul are just few examples among those wanting to radically diminish the role of government. Not only do they not want government to legislate morality, but they also want most governmental regulatory agencies to be dismantled. This type of libertarian stance is controversial even among those who emphasize individual rights. Is this type of libertarian stance workable? Would the lack of government regulations in regard to the shared resources lead to corporate rape and pillage of the common good? For example, wouldn’t the lack of environmental regulations lead to more pollution and environmental disasters? Is it desirable to have no working safety laws, banking laws, any type of welfare, or a strong military? Discuss
