Honestly, the "government's" effective purpose in hanging witches was to keep so many from being hanged. Libertarianism, even though it proclaims leaving the individual alone, would have probably led to a bunch of individuals hanging and burning the fuck out of a bunch of other individuals for just looking like they had gotten a bad night's sleep.
