What Libertarians Are Good For

The Cato Institute has an interactive map of paramilitary police raids in the US, an accompaniment to Radley Balko's work on this issue.

"One of the things libertarians are good for," surely. :-)

I dunno, Jacob. All you could do was hint that there might be some other thing y'all are good for. It's almost as if you are seeking some assurance that, indeed, there are many uses for libertarians.

I think the burden of proof is on you. I've extended an olive branch by admitting to this one case.

Then again, you should be careful what you wish for: you wouldn't want libertarians to turn out to be like Aristotle's Delphic knife--"good" for lots of things, and therefore, in truth, good for nothing! Better to be good for only one thing!
