Penn Jillette on Libertarianism

Penn Jillette, the talking half of the Penn & Teller magic team, recently discussed why he’s a Libertarian. Here’s a brief excerpt:

“I don’t know if everyone would be better off under a Libertarian government. I don’t know what would be best for anyone. I don’t even know what’s best for me. What makes me Libertarian is I don’t think anyone else really knows what’s best for anyone. My argument for Libertarianism is simple – personal morality.”
