Yeah - Dr. Ruwart is a hard-core Libertarian (amongst other things). In

she is pretty extreme in her views and, to my mind, blurs the line
between "Libertarian" and "Anarcho-capitalist" (or "individualist
To be blunt, I've never heard her make a distinction between
Libertarianism (minimal government) and anarchy (no government), though
I have asked upon occasion.
Of course, whether you view any of this as positive or negative depends,
I suppose, on if you like the idea of extremely limited government or
not - on whether you are a radical individualist or a collectivist.
