Tailor Your Ideology Into Relevance

PROPOSITION: Until libertarians tailor their ideology and their actions to accommodate the common people’s nativism, nationalism, ethnic bigotry, and support for U.S. imperialism abroad and police brutality at home, they can never gain enough adherents to become a serious factor in American political life.

REPLY: If that is the price of libertarianism’s political success, the price is too high, and libertarians ought to give up their efforts to influence politics directly. Libertarians have nothing of value to gain by transforming their ideology into fascism lite.
