Tyranny is difficult to establish in the beginning. This we have learned from great thinkers like Mises, Bastiat, Etienne De La Boetie and others. They tell us that most people, if they are given a choice, would much rather be free than a slave. The idea that it would be better to be ordered around by a single individual really makes no sense to a sound thinking person.
One of the most persistent — and fallacious — argument against the libertarian or laissez-faire position is that libertarianism is an “atomistic” and “selfish” philosophy that denies the obvious truth that human beings are a “social species” who long for a strong sense of community.
