My wife is a social worker

I think the title "my job contradicts libertarianism" couldn't be further from the truth. I'm reasonably convinced that with the knowledge and experience you have, you can in many ways demonstrate why state run social welfare programs are unfair and inefficient.

When my wife (who is not quite on board with my libertarian views, but getting there slowly) was promoted to be the director at a non-prof social welfare agency, she got to see first hand how one size fits all government programs are a disaster. She had to quit after a couple years because she couldn't handle the stress of paperwork and hoop jumping.
