Tyranny Is Built Out Of libertarian Buts

From Anarchy In Your
November 7th, 2008

Many seem eager to claim the label of libertarian. Many claim to want a live and let live society. But then there is that one bit of government intrusion that they’re not willing to give up.

I’m a libertarian, but we need government to control our borders!
I’m a libertarian, but we need government to protect us from foreign enemies!
I’m a libertarian, but government needs to provide a safety net!
I’m a libertarian, but _______!

Everyone just has their little thing they want from government. To keep their little thing, they compromise on all the rest and we get an awful lot of buts and a really bloated and intrusive government. What’s your libertarian but that’s contributing to the growth of the cancer known as authoritarian government?
