We see leftists as people pro-social-freedom and anti-economic freedom.
We see rightists as anti-social-freedom and pro-economic freedom.
Libertarians are both pro-social-freedom and pro-economic freedom.

I don't know much about libertarianism but when I hear people argue it, they don't make much sense to me so perhaps someone on this forum could explain the logic of libertarianism. The idea is that less in terms of government is more but obviously if you do that you have some people becoming very rich and wealth = power. Therefore, they will continue to make themselves more rich until the system is sucked dry. We know that happens because history has shown us that. Even in our current alleged namby pamby (according to libertarianisms system) we have 400 billionaires with more wealth than the bottom 150,000,000 in the U.S.
And lets fact it most of those billionaires didn't work hard to get where they. First, they inherited and then they found loopholes in a system that favors the wealthy. I'm not trolling. I just don't see libertarians addressing these fundamental arguments to their system of beliefs. That is, how do you prevent rule by the few with few civil laws? It seems to me the natural order of things would lead to that state under a libertarian philosophy.
