Converting a generation to libertarianism

How do you guys go about persuading the throngs of statist and/or apathetic students about the merits of liberty? Personally, I don’t like to directly bring up politics and/or libertarianism to random people, but have trouble shutting my yapper if someone seeks to engage me on the philosophy behind all those weird Facebook statuses.

In terms of actual communication, I strive to be unapologetically radical in message yet polite and nonconfrontational in delivery. I think a powerful question one can pose rather easily is:  “why don’t private ethics, particularily in war, apply to the state?”

Anyway, does anyone (especially older activists with a lot more seasoning than I) have any advice or success stories they’d be willing to share with the rest of us?
