On Monday, February 22nd at 7pm, Cafe Libertalia hosted the first debate on this topic of high-level of control over people vs. absolutely zero government and thus a completely free market economy.
This was not the typical political debate that argued over what to do with the stolen loot. Instead it focused on that basic question -- whether or not 'government' is necessary, appropriate or legitimate.
The two sides are from what is generally considered the fringes of
political philosophy: a high level of people- management (governmental regulations, mandates, etc.) vs. absolutely no management. This contrast should expose the dynamics of philosophy.
