Bryan, that is why I advocate a politically radical and culturally mainstream libertarian movement. Anarchy (or even minarchy) sounds batsh*t crazy to average Americans. They will only hear us out if we are well-read, conservatively-dressed, and respectful of non-coercive bourgeois norms — even when we disagree.
This doesn’t mean excluding any of the fringe types who naturally gravitate to our movement. But it does mean being careful about who we choose to represent us. An unkempt gigolo who advocates “race consciousness” along with “9/11 Truth,” spends his freetime “toking up,” and considers a novelization of Star Wars Episode II high-brow literature is probably not the ideal.Published in
