A fact of life that keeps me out of the Libertarian camp.

Labor Blog: When Leaving a Job Isn't an Option: "But the basic point is that 'the labor market' doesn't function the way libertarian utopians try to picture, which is why strong regulations and unions are needed in the first place."

On social issues: drugs prohibition, prostitution, sexuality, etc. the Libertarians and I agree whole-heartedly. It's the free-market fundamnetalism that seems to enthrall them that sticks in my craw. Labor, health care, and transportation (airlines, mainly) seem to get punched by the guiding hand of the free market rather than gently massaged by it.
