Wanted to say that I know I haven't read everything there is to read on liberalism/libertarianism/communism/utilitarianism, but I've read enough that I can form an intelligent opinion. Maybe I'm wrong (and you can tell me so), but I think those who believe in liberalism haven't thought enough about the consequences of their philosophical beliefs. I know they are in the majority, but I hope you, as a philosophy major and LSAT taker (presumably), do not use that as a defense.
OP, look at the stupid debate depicted above. This is why you should not write about this.
