Every argument I can vaguely recall having with a libertarian has descended into an argument for anarcho-capitalism. Which I would call a childish reaction by people who essentially think the government is Satan.

Though I can't necessarily assume what it is you believe.

I believe in everyone's right to do what they want, as long as it doesn't bring harm unwillingly to anyone.

Also, I came to the conclusion that a perfect society would be one, where all humans are equal in their dependence of others. Either no one is dependent on anyone, or all are dependent or others at the same level. Current society just doesn't cut it, as all communities always have someone who is less dependent than others are, thus allowing him/her to assert control and be above others. But I do acknowledge that we are unable at the moment to create a society in the form of the idea above, since equality is lacked on many other departments in the world as well.

But I am not forcing you to think that there should be a society where no one is a lamb. Allowing opinions is a part of being a libertarian.

I wouldn't expect anything less than total individual freedom, on a meaningful level its not exactly non-existent besides the occasional stupid law. Drugs, age of consent, ect.

Perfection in its self is a fictitious word if used literally. Its no better an idea than one of an Anarchist who thinks people will magically all think each other equals and respect one another if government was abolished, idiots like Adam Kokesh for example.

Humanity is not perfect, but its not particularly flawed either, we are natural creatures no less than wolves are. We're primates, to expect a sort of uniformity as some Communists may expect in a community to immediately arise out of the malaise set in by capitalism would be silly.

Society functions off culture, or vice versa. There is no ultimate one, societies do not gain experience over time and level their culture up as though its a game. Humanity and organisms in general happen to gain complexity and thusly a greater chance of survival.

If the Third Reich had a system economic or otherwise far superior to its competitors it may have survived to this day. But it didn't, it was a violent global organism which endlessly consumed territory, and cannibalized specific parts of its own populace. Naturally this threatened the survival of other nations so they came down on Germany united like a dump truck full of bricks.

I can wish a Communist society were so easy to achieve, but it won't make it any more practical as a standard for now. 'Everything is either Communist or not good enough,' no it's silly to think that.

These ideals need not be thrown out but there must be stepping stones to reach anything near this ideal. Without objectively or pragmatically looking at what's around you it doesn't matter what you think or do, you'll only bog down progress rather than supplement it, whatever it is you call progress.

Something interesting a history professor I know once pointed out:

"Communism and Capitalism both have major flaws, the main ones being:

1) Communism requires men to be perfect. The problem is that people are imperfect, and imperfect people are more likely to gain absolute control than their counterparts.

2) Capitalism requires men to be somewhat crooked. The main problem is that this goal is far too easily attained."

Man can only strive for the best or be dragged down by those who rather have lived a century ago when now was considered merely a vision of utopia then.

I don't doubt for a moment how stupid people are and the general lack of political knowledge most seem to have, or not have rather.

On a basic level people generally recognize Democrats as the people who care about the people or the Republicans as the ones who preserve American values, whatever the hell that means.

Plus it starts with D, which means lazy bastards like me don't need to go to their full list of groups to get to it... yes I'm that lazy.

If by "American values" you mean "greed and hypocrisy", then you're absolutely right.
