Noam Chomsky quote that simplifies a great deal:

Now, the Libertarian Party, is a *capitalist* party. It's in favor of what *I* would regard a *particular form* of authoritarian control.

Namely, the kind that comes through private ownership and control, which is an *extremely* rigid system of domination -- people have to... people can survive, by renting themselves to it, and basically in no other way...

I do disagree with them *very* sharply, and I think that they are not.. understanding the *fundamental* doctrine, that you should be free from domination and control, including the control of the manager and the owner.

They're angry because deep down, they know they are conning themselves and you won't join their religion. Plain and simple. IMHO. My technique is to lead the children out of their paradise and get them thinking of the basics. You might ask them to read those to see why you don't agree. Let them prove what they are saying.
