I like how it ended. Bravo sir!
On REALISM: I'll admit, my libertarianism is a HOBBY. I study anarchism and social theory and economics and morality because I enjoy it. But I'm powerless to put anything in effect beyond my household. It would be just as REALISTIC to call myself a bunny rabbit and think it would become true as it would be call myself libertarian and hope to change society.
Even if I had this SUPER-REALISTIC worldview where I thought minimum wage should be 15 cents lower/higher or I wished that one less bullet be fired overseas, I'd still be just as powerless to affect this super-realistic worldview.
Cruel insult indeed!
This said, it's better to be right than be realistic, because as you suggest, the world doesn't care.
