I agree with the libertarians (and the anarchists) on one thing.

I’d say that the most practical among us, only want to bulldoze the place if we find that it’s got a combination poisonous mold and termite infestation.

Then, maybe we’d be better in the tent. Just until we can clear the area and build a much better house.


Our country has some problems. We’ve got the national equivalent of a leaky roof, some creaky floorboards, and probably some lead paint. My rule for home repairs is to figure out what we can live with, figure out what we need to fix, and find the easiest and least disruptive way to do the repairs.

The libertarians (an anarchists!) are more inclined to bulldoze the place and pitch a tent.
