What's your "favorite" government program? Do you have one, one that you will be kind of sad to see go?

NASA, DARPA, and the NSF are the three main reasons why I'm not a libertarian/anarchist. These programs have always returned on their investment, opening up whole new sectors of the economy in the process. In this respect, anarchy is very bad at actually advancing scientific progress.

There are 12,000 miles of private roads in the state of Maine alone. Have you ever heard of shopping centers? Doesn't it make sense for the developers to construct a road out to a larger road, so that customers will choose to come to the shopping center/development/night life?

No, no, no. I don't want to have to pay at a toll booth every time I go to use a road. It's better if we all pool our money and let one organization take care of it.

NASA, because the Space Race was neat in the sense of "my country's better than your country!!!!" and the sense of irrational pride that gives people. Not for any other reason though.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

NPR. They're one of my favorite news sources.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

NASA, NOAA, PBS and NPR. Though I may just downsize them and not eliminate them.

Oh, well, yeah, that makes sense. Poor people don't deserve roads.

Yep. Something like 50% of health care spending was direct from the g'bmont and 25% indirectly controlled through grobmunt mandates prior to Obamacare.

I think we have enough concrete as it is already. We just haven't set-up what we have already efficiently enough.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

None, under anarcho-capitalism we would still have all gov't programs, except they would be privatized.
