I really do not get the differences that Objectivists have with libertarianism and especially I do not get Ayn Rands critique. To get it more clear I would like to hear a debate between:

1. An objectivist like Yaron Brook.

2. A minarchist libertarian (if there are any?). I would say that even Ron Paul is really an anarchist if it comes down to it. :-)

3. An anarchist libertarian like Stefan Molyneux (or Hans Hoppe but he does not seem to be a debater).


Note that a debate between anarchist Stefan Molyneux and Minarchists Michael Badnarik and Jan Helfeld have already taken place, where the discussion centered mainly on issues from effect (consequentialism):


Also there is a small debate between Yaron Brook and anarchists here:

I like to see the debate focus on good and evil, so morality. This probably excludes group 2 because those people are usually consequentialists. But I like to know what the poblem is that Objectivists have with minarchist libertarians and with anarchist libertarians. I suspect that it has to do with ethics.
