UPDATE: Miracles of Augmentin. I am still not completely well, and I'm not sure if I will be well enough to go into work Tuesday or not. But it is at least a possibility this evening that I will be well enough to go to work tomorrow. Imagine a world without antibiotics, or at least without working antibiotics. This is one of the minor arguments against doctrine libertariianism, which asserts that restrictions on drugs like antibiotics so that you can't just buy them without a prescription are unnecessary limits on liberty. This is exactly the sort of problem of individual benefit vs. collective injury were the most doctrinaire views do not work as well as a little bit of restriction--sort of like prohibiting handgun vending machines.
