The libertarians view the concept of small government theologically, as an end in itself. They never talk about the symbiotic relationship between the size of government and the capitalist economy, it they did, they would discover that there has never been a capitalist country with small government. Capitalism is a big government political system—just as communism is. In a stable capitalist country, the size of the government is proportional to the size of the economy. The attempt to cut the size of the government in a capitalist country has a destabilizing impact on the economy—it leads to job losses in the private sector and political and cultural problems. If you want a small government system, then you have to move away from capitalism towards a system that is regulated through self-governed guilds and local communities.
