Agree on all points. Before 1989 and the Department of Environmental Protection there was 0 tolerance for pollutants in any environmental cleanups. Tidbit I just gleamed from talking with a friend of mine from DEP enforcement.
I also still can't fathom why libertarians never bring up private market solutions. Any "sweet cause" can be handled more efficiently by a private organization where donations are voluntary and those in charge are held accountable to those who donate. I'm sick and tired of being labeled "anti education" or "against the poor" because we don't endorse coercive redistribution of wealth.
