No True Libertarianism...

Nice little blog post about how there is a lack of examples of successful libertarian regimes, or at least regimes which libertarians would accept as true libertarian governments. The basic problem is that, when the rubber hits the road, we're talking about anarchy and misery:
This, by the way, is why racism, theocracy and libertarianism go hand in hand, when from a philosophical point of view they should have little to do with one another. The negative effects of the lack of a central government are so obvious in developing countries that wherever the social order fails as in Somalia, it must have been due to bad religion, or the defect of having been born to an inferior race.
This, of course, isn't going to convince anybody on the Volokh Conspiracy, but it's a pretty persuasive point.
