11 Questions You Should Ask Libertarians to See if They're Hypocrites
We aren’t suggesting every libertarian is a hypocrite, but there’s an easy way to find out. [LOL, you know, kinda like every statement that comes after "With all due respect..."]

Libertarians have a problem. Their political philosophy all but died out in the mid- to late-20th century, but was revived by billionaires and corporations that found them politically useful. And yet libertarianism retains the qualities that led to its disappearance from the public stage, before its reanimation by people like the Koch brothers: It doesn’t make any sense.
They call themselves “realists” but rely on fanciful theories that have never predicted real-world behavior. They claim that selfishness makes things better for everybody, when history shows exactly the opposite is true. They claim that a mythical “free market” is better at everything than the government is, yet when they really need government protection, they’re the first to clamor for it.
That’s no reason not to work with them on areas where they’re in agreement with people like me. In fact, the unconventionality of their thought has led libertarians to be among this nation’s most forthright and outspoken advocates for civil liberties and against military interventions.
LOL: "Libertarians have a problem. Their political philosophy all but died out in the mid- to late-20th century"
Right, because these idiots actually even know the very definition what libertarianism is, let alone critique it with any seriousness, not to mention, hilariously pretending/acting AS IF it's ever been tried.
Sure, let us all willfully ignorantly deny the existence of the very much observable (if one chooses to be awake) events unfolding before ALL of us: the very visible, historically factual PROOF of 100% FAILURE of EVERY SINGLE FORM of govt from monarchies, to corporatist/fasicst/Keynesian statism in all its 'glorious' iterations: fascism, Nazism, progressivism/FDR-New Deal, Bolshevism/Stalinism/Communism/Socialism, European-Socialism.
