Are libertarians indoctrinated?

  1. Aug 5, 2009 #1
    Can it be argued that libertarians are indoctrinated, that humans have no basic rights by nature, and that the only people not to be indoctrinated are anarchists?

    Anything can be argued.

    Even anarchists, when they try to actually formally coalesce into a society, end up with the most complicated rules. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAaWvVFERVA"

    Noam Chomsky, a supporter of the notion of anarchy, had said that the closest modern humans had ever gotten to n anarchic state was in Northern Spain before Franco took over. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Revolution" [Broken] contains a first-hand description (and endorsement) of this society by George Orwell. Read it, and tell me if you can sense any indoctrination behind the anarchy.
