Yes, the pure Libertarian ideals scare a lot of people. I call myself a Constitutional Libertarian, Social Liberal, Fiscal Conservative.
As for the Agrarianism, life in Modern Society has grown to the point that many countries cannot follow that tenet. I believe if the world's
population spread out that could work. But some just find semi or rural life to be beneath them. My last employer actually asked me when I gave my

some of the bad moves we made in the past, or not make amendments.
But we must remember, that to sidestep the Constitution, makes us no better than any other tyrant of the past.
