Tis difficult it seems

For pure Libertarians to think in terms of common sense and not dogma or tribalism.
Please try.
Common sense / thinking things through thoroughly / looking from both sides of the fence, are great tools in coming up with solutions for all sorts of problems.
And discarding duff ideas.
It is often called critical thinking.

In this respect there are a lot of Libertarians that are not dissimilar to tribalist GOP or Dems, because they cannot do this.

One of my heroes is Thomas Paine (I have 5) because he applied Common Sense in two different ways and made the whole world a better place.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
