for a citizen to "opt out" of government services. My brother feels that allowing opting out would be a bad idea. I think I agree, at least for certain category B services that are both very important and whose utility decreases as the amount of buy-in decreases.

For instance, the army. It's a tad hard to protect no 7 smith street from nuclear weapons without protecting no 9 as well (even iof no 7 wants to pay for it and no 9 doesn't).

I hope that people will note that not _everyone_ on there is a pure idealistic libertarian and that there is spectrum of people (although tending strongly to the neophilic,intelligent, educated, imaginative, etc.).
