You continue to dodge the actual point of the whole post to divert attention to a single detail.. It doesn't even change the point I made. A point

I don't agree. I think you're naive to think that government intervention represents the only factor or even the largest one. I'm familiar with the
seminal works of Mises, Rothbard and others — praxeology and the action axiom are nonsense. Do you want to argue against the eminence of these
economists among 20th century and contemporary American libertarian thinkers? Are you arguing that what you promote is not reliant on Austrian
By this point, I was really hoping to be getting into issues like marketization, immigration and globalism, abolishing social welfare programs, the
