Most libertarians and minarchists refuse to acknowledge healthcare as a service that should be provided by the goverment (nothing wrong with that), while, simultaneously use a wishy washy logic to, through massive amounts of cognitive disonance, say that the local goverment should provide a firefighter service funded by everyone.
Don't get me wrong, it makes sense that minarchists defend a vigilante government that provides police, free courthouses and a small body of soldiers to defend and ONLY defend the country (no foreign intervention allowed) as law, order and stability are public goods, however, I don't see how firefighters are one.
So do germs and disease, that does not mean that healthcare is a right and that I should fund firefighters to protect you, your property and your business.
>firefighters allow me to defend my property, my bodily autonomy and mantain it at its fullest
So do most welfare programs, but you are a libertarian, not a social democrat, be coherent.
>firefighters are more efficient when they a provided by the government
We are talking about liberty and freedom, not efficiency, that's not libertarianism, that's utilitarianism.
Charity, Pharma research, banking, academia funding and healthcare are also more efficiently provided by the government (or that's what utilitarians say), but that's not an argument against freedom.
Utilitarianism is fucking intellectual cancer.
If you unironically think that efficiency justifies it you are a social democrat that believes in trickle-down economics, not a libertarian
Read Ayn Rand "the Virtue of Egoism": Libertarian ethics are based upon ethical egoism, rationalism and hedonism instead of upon utilitarianism or empirism, other people's happiness are nothing of your concern, and according to our concept of Free Will and human rationality, it is better for them to be like so.
