I'm a socialist and I understand Libertarianism better than that.
not sure how one follows from the other. socialism is the most anti-libertarian socio-political system of the major isms. Won't challenge the assertion, but the cause and effect relationship suggested by the statement fails.
These criminals, from petty thieves right up the list, have infringed on the rights of others and will face punishment to match the crime.
Any punishment that interferes with the perp's liberty or pursuit of justice violates unalienable rights and therefore is disallowed. Those rights, you see, are, like gun ownership, inviolable. Even if someone else may be harmed by a failure to act, the unalienable right trumps the action. Or so goes the theory. Is it an absurd notion. Well, yes, of course it is. But hard to discuss a concept without getting to its root beliefs.
You are an expert on the law Logan, perhaps you can tell me why laws are written?
