Score: 4

Explanations:

pomonomo2003 (1): The so-called "Economic Calculation" problem was what convinced me, back in the days of yore, that socialism was economically impossible. That is, there are no true economic decisions under (complete) socialism because there is no economic information without market mechanisms. Thus all economic decisions under socialism are disguised political decisions.… (more)

Right leaning administrations (and/or situations of conflict) increase funding for the military-industrial state; left leaning administrations (or situations without large overseas conflicts) increase funding for everything else. ...The State always wins.… (more)

Explanations:

pomonomo2003 (10): The anarcho-capitalist Rothbard, who ended his career as a paleo-libertarian had at one time been an advocate of a libertarian and new left alliance. I think Rothbard was the libertarian Lenin, who could change policy at a moments notice. Rothbard would've allied himself with anyone he thought could aid in increasing the prospects for liberty. Had he lived much longer he would've eventually left the Paleos for something else.… (more)
