    As the old saw goes: 99% of lawyers give the other 1% a bad name!

    Any proposed government system that relies on the beneficence of the members of said system is doomed to very quick failure. That is simple human nature.

    Not having to rely heavily on the beneficence of anyone is an important aspect of crime detection (which is vital to the success of Libertarianism), and there are ways to detect back-room handshake deals which will need to be rigorously employed to realize the full glory of enforcement of the Natural Law...

    "goodwill" - If I understand your idea of natural law correctly then the goodwill of one human towards another will be needed, for all humans within the applicable political entity. And that's where your system falls down. All of recorded human history says that we will always have vast quantities of people like those who run The New Hampshire Libertarian Party.
    Human nature is not something Dilip understands. He really BELIEVES that once a LIbertarian government is in place, no one within that party will be "human" and try to game the system for their own benefit. But the truth, as you so eloquently point out, is that just about ALL of them will be doing that and will bring it all down, probably more quickly than any socialist government collapse in history.

    Dilip's parroting of his own line about following Natural Law is more a proposed cult, similar to the Amish but removing the religious aspect, than a legitimate proposal for a governing system.

    No Libertarian Party at least in North America makes any reference in their policy statements to Natural Law.

    Goodwill is important, but much more important is that you do not harm others, except in fair competition! And that is where Libertarianism excels over other current governance models...
    Those who lose goodwill (which is usually a two-way street), will suffer themselves, but the system will not fall down, so long as Natural Law is enforced, and all have easy access to capital...

    So happens, Dilip, that for the last 15 years of my career, I was a salaried lawyer, making much less than most lawyers........why?

    I was the supervisor of a community legal aid clinic, within a multi-service centre. My clinic was free to those who qualified - myself, another lawyer, 3 paralegals and two legal secretaries.......all free for low-income clients. And our system was touted during my initial career there by none other than Roy McMurtry, then AG in the cabinet of Premier Bill Davis.

    Nice to know you do practice what you preach, Bob!

    Whoever put up that post mocking John McCain, harmed only themselves by losing the goodwill of those who honored McCain. McCain's family should realize that there is no reason for them to be 'in pain' just because there is someone somewhere who thinks that McCain was worth mocking (nobody is entitled to the whole world loving them, as posters on Chesstalk know very well ! ) What Libertarianism will not provide is wiping away of differences of opinion, but it will provide enforcement of the Natural Law, so that if someone really harms you, he will have to adequately compensate you for that...

    Bob,
    How much did you, throughout your career, profit off the misery of frustrated litigants/defendants? Not totally altruistic, right?

    I likely was saved by my mRNA vaccine (I'll take the long-term consequences, if any)......I had COVID-19 somewhat badly, and I am a diabetic senior (Group with the worst mortality stats).

    Lucky me that for once in human history, mega-corporations managed something beneficial.

    But I wonder......how much did they profit off of human, planetary misery? Maybe not totally altruistic? Also seems there may have been some corners cut re safety to get the $$ rolling in?

    Countries bought a lot of vaccine, that they distributed free (It wasn't the pharmaceutical industry that made it free, was it?)

    Thank you president Trump.

    Thank you capitalism.
    He is too enslaved by Marxist ideology to be able to do that...
