    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    Until very recently most of the funding for R&D for Ebola treatments was coming from government (thanks Cheney!).

    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    I think all these points raise more questions than answers.

    At what point does a disease or illness become a national threat? The flu is more contagious and kills more than ebola has, yet we...

    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    That sounds like a "big government" solution. And besides it might not evern work. Ebola is only "moderately sensitive to radiation" http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/lab-bio/res/psds-ftss/ebola-eng.php

    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    Should we quarantine all people coming to the US for 3 weeks?

    Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    What do you libertarians think about trying to contain an epidemic like the current ebola outbreak?

    Who quarantines them? Who pays for it? Who enforces it? What if they don't want to be...

    All these countries from Central Asia and around the world come together and play traditional nomad games.

    I got to check this out this past weekend. It was intense!

    Re: How do you guys interpret Matthew 19:24?

    You didn't address Matthew 25:34-46.
