Not entirely sure where to post this so let me know if this is the wrong place for this kind of post.
American libertarianism is fiercely antigovernment and pro-capitalist. Borderlands is a game about corporations that own and control entire planets with no government, whatsoever. All people are entirely subject to the wills of these corporations, like Hyperion, Atlas, and Maliwan. These corporations wage wars against each other, which they simply describe as “mergers and acquisitions.” This may not be what libertarians think would result form their ideology but in truth, it is the final result. No “nonaggression principle” could ever hold any weight in such a world where those with the wealth and power are capable of contracting entire armies to defend and fight for their interests. By doing away with all public functioning governing bodies, libertarians are unknowingly, yet, voluntarily subjecting themselves to the dominance of private enterprise. Libertarianism is actually an ideology for those desiring to return to some form of neofeudal world where all of society is reorganized back into the old form of the monarchy except instead of the sovereign ruling by the divine right of god, they instead rule by the fact that they embodied the “entrepreneurial spirit” and “worked hard” for what they have. However, as we can probably deduce from Borderlands, the customer is always right…until they no longer have any other choice.
