How to Argue with Libertarians

Roderick Long offers some simple advice to statists:

If they advocate the abolition of some government program from which they personally benefit, call them hypocrites.

If they advocate the abolition of some government program from which they don’t personally benefit, call them selfish.

Heh. I’ve come up against both arguments many times, often both from the same person.
