I imagine libertarians skip the first chapter of Animal Farm and come away feeling that well everything was just dandy

People correctly point to Maoism as a horror but how often to do you hear about the centuries of feudalistic oppression that came before?

The only reason we have technologies in development that promote sustainability is because we live in a society that has embraced capitalism and where that kind of thinking is encouraged. Entrepreneurial individuals connecting with the right people doesn't happen in any kind of Communistic society. :p:

Public funded science is very powerful

majority of the tech used in your cell phone can be traced back to NASA for instance

The Soviet Union was first in space but ok.

Our farms are totally regulated and subsidized.

Water is completely regulated by the government.

Our military is entirely a socialist institution somewhat ironically for the right.

Our entire government is obviously public sector.

FCC governs communications.

ATF. TSA. FAA.

National and State Parks.

Our highways.

FDA.

The FBI, CIA, NSA, all public sector socialist institutions. Everyone who works at the Pentagon. The IRS. The police. NASA.

The Apollo missions. Pretty much every space endeavor by any country. Splitting the atom was a public works program. We actually out communisted the Soviets to win the Cold War.

Banks and auto industries bailed out by socialist policy. Subways. Busses. School.
