In efforts to come out on top, you're cutting off your nose...

to spite your face.

How can you be a libertarian if you don't believe in individual liberty?

Your premise that "might is right" is fallacious.

Using your line of reasoning, the Jews did not have their rights violated since the "collective" of which they were a member did not grant them the right to life. Therefore, what the Nazis did was justified.

The Native Americans did not have their rights violated either. Since the immigrants from Europe possessed more might, the property rights of Native Americans did not exist. Therefore, the immigrants were justified since those rights never existed.

Further, the slaves did not have their rights violated. Since their modes of defense were inferior, they had no right to liberty. Thus, slaveholders were not in the wrong since, by your argument, they had no rights to begin with.

Just because rights are violated - even in perpetuity - does not mean that they do not exist.

Maybe you should've picked a different political philosophy if you actually believe that what the "collective" does by majority decree or by indefensible force is automatically justified. That concept certainly doesn't have anything in common with libertarianism.
