I'll be looking for simple rebuttals to common objections:
"You want to let everyone have guns!?"
"You want to get rid of the NHS?!"
"You want to take away the safety net?!"
"What if people can't afford education or choose not to educate their kids?!"
"People will starve and die. There will be (armed) riots!!"
"What about the children/frail/mentally ill???!!!"

This libertarian concludes that acknowledging and respecting the private property and liberty of one another (so-called negative liberty) is the best means to the creation of valuable opportunities to be taken by one another (so-called positive liberty).
Furthermore, neither property nor law needs a government to bring it into being - no more than does language and cuisine.
Any other brief encapulations of the essence of the libertarian philosophy out there?
