Exile and/or enforced shunning isn't libertarianism.

(I meant to post that to you on another thread, but I suppose this one serves just as well.)

Koan believes ancient Greece was some kind of democratic state that lived in balance with nature. He does not know that Greece was a loose conglomeration of city states that routinely went to war with each other. He does not know that Plato believed might was right and had no problem with slavery or that Aristotle held a philosophy closer to Ayn Rand than his own. For Koan everything ends with an lol and another hit of the the bong while his little notions go up in smoke.
