I don't know how I missed this page when it was created. "Fun" is a bit of a loose word here, I've got to say... Lurker 13:21, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Libertarianism is at stage II-III.

The Galt speech[edit]

Atlas Shrugged isn't in the public domain is it? Are we not better off deleting that section just to be sure? Nobody is going to read the whole thing anyway. Internetmoniker (talk) 11:29, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

I propose this article replace the serious one since there really is nothing to Libertarianism than what is referenced here.

Statue of Liberty[edit]

Maybe I'm being too serious, but referring to the Statue of Liberty as a "government" statue is a bit inaccurate. Yes, the it's on government land and administered by the government, but it was privately funded.Fdof (talk) 03:13, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Something privately constructed that is sold or given to the government becomes part of the government. By your logic, Carnegie libraries aren't really public libraries, despite being owned and run by the government with taxpayer money, because a century ago Andrew Carnegie paid for them to be built, and national parks aren't "government" parks because they were originally crafted by nature.

Found this article very funny indeed[edit]

Hi there! I'm Mestesugarul from Wikipedia and I just wanted to let you know that as a libertarian, I found this article strikingly hilarious. Great job :) (talk) 21:09, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
