Libertarianism is exerting an unhealthy influence over social issues

In a report on the possible legalisation of prostitution on Channel 4 News no mention was made of the ideological drive that is behind the make-prostitution-legal campaign.

Extreme libertarianism is exerting an unhealthy influence over social issues.

This warped ideology will result in many vulnerable people being placed at risk, and yet it has subtle and persuasive arguments ("It's about freedom") that are difficult to counter unless you have been trained to unpick them on a philosophical level.
