"A common complaint about libertarians is that we criticize government without offering any policies to solve social problems. I think that complaint is unfair in a whole bunch of ways, not least of which is that the complainers seem to equate 'policies' with 'things government should do' and thereby eliminate libertarian policy proposals almost by definition. It’s also true that libertarians too often respond to this sort of complaint by talking in terms that are too utopian or too radical to ever persuade people that we’ve thought about how to actually get from here to there."
