Okay this has been a near constant pet peeve of mine but why does every time I see someone refer to libertarianism on this site,they seem to have almost no idea what they are actually talking about? No westerner credits libertarianism for the success of the United States or any western nation. They credit capitalism itself as one of the major reasons why the US had been so successful. Note a country can be capitalist without being fully deregulated as libertarians want. The United States is not a libertarian free market. In fact, the United States is a mixed economy that is ranked 17 on the economic freedom index with even the United Kingdom and Canada being ahead of us. Libertarianism is a political fringe in the United States with the libertarian party being considered a complete joke even by libertarians themselves. While the US may have a freer market than most other nations, it's not even remotely close to being considered a "free market fantasy land" like you seem to think westerns believe it is. Libertarians do not have any real control over the government or it's foreign and economic policy. The closest thing libertarians have to a figure in the government is Rand Paul and his only one man that has an extremely limited amount of influence that often goes ignored.Westeners have this retarded tendency to credit libertarianism, muh free market, and democracy for things that have nothing to do with those because they actually believe we currently live in their libertarian free market fantasy land. Not sure you actually live in a democracy either.
If your going to make an assertion like this, at least try to have even a basic understanding of the subject you are referring too.
