wow after being off of tumblr for so long it’s kind of appalling how much people here just don’t understand anything.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

I’m starting a libertarian group on my campus, but we’re mostly socially progressive. Crowdsource question:

What are the biggest, easiest, most devastating ways to alienate ourselves from conservatives? To be clear, we are trying to NOT do that. Another way of asking this would be, what bugs you most about libertarians?

(self-identifying conservatives answer only, please)

This question was made for me, basically.

Don’t go all pro-abortion, implying you have to support abortion to be a libertarian.

Don’t go on supporting government-sponsored gay “marriage.” That’s not a good issue.

Don’t confuse supporting drug legalization with supporting drug use. Scale back 4/20 events to make sure they don’t promote drug use.

There’s a difference between being anti-state and anti-authority, and it’s an important distinction.

In general, don’t conflate libertinism and libertarianism, or your socially liberal values as a requirement or a prerequisite for libertarianism. Don’t talk about “privilege” and other concepts you see on Tumblr, which have started to permeate a lot of the modern pop libertarianism.

Okay, wow. First of all, let me say that I’m really kind of flattered that someone as well-known as CommunismKills would respond to my shot-in-the-dark question, much less do so at such a length. That’s truly something else.

That being said, I still think you’re a toxic piece of garbage and I hate you.

You’ve always been one of the most arrogant fucking numbskulls on this website, and when it comes to nearly every issue, you’re just a sad excuse for a moral thinker if I’ve ever seen one. You’re so vain, you actually thought this post was about you. The only person I have ever met on the internet who is full of more shit and is convinced that they are worth their weight in gold is Collowrath, so you’re in similar company.

To try and divorce libertine-ism and libertarianism is to cut the philosophy off at the knees. You’re effectively saying that “government doesn’t have the right to pidgeonhole people into how to live their lives, but society should be structured in a way to ostracize a variety of lifestyles.” No. That’s bullshit. That’s not libertarianism. That’s the same cow-tow Republican horseshit that we all have come to expect from a snobby brat like CommunismKills.

Putting gay marriage in scare quotes and making a distinction between state and authority (which, the state is just centralized authority— that’s what it is, and that’s why it’s bad) is exactly why I do everything in my power to not associate with some of the mud like you.

I also want to say I’m glad not all conservatives are like you. I’m glad that you are a kind of caricature, a kind of living joke, that is exemplary of the kind of narcissistic, elitist hatred that libertarianism is going to help eradicate.

How do you even TALK about power structures if no one mentions privilege? Tumblr misuses the term all the time, but how do you talk about justice inequality, or the government’s war on the poor, without establishing some concept of class theory? You are just so fucking willfully ignorant of even the most base social theory that it robs you of the chance to actually understand politics. You willfully misunderstand because you have trapped yourself in a fucking bubble from spending all of your time gauging “activism” through tumblr for the last… how many years has it been? Five? You were still a disgusting little shitstain back when I was in high school. You must have been here for the past seven or eight years. It’s no wonder you have never expanded your philosophy beyond the mind of a disgruntled teenage hillbilly.

I appreciate your advice, if for no other reason because you have reminded me of the kinds of social evils that necessitate libertarianism. You and your ilk are exactly why we have a long fight ahead of us, because like one of your racist compatriots once said in reference to Michael Brown, “evil people don’t die quick.” Except in this instance, it is your evil ideas that don’t die easily. I rest easy knowing that good ideas will almost always win over ideas stemming from hatred and disgust, and on their own merit.

based on my experience with yal, labeling yourself as libertarian group might alienate conservative leaning students. we've had people sign up who were interested, but as soon as they saw the college republicans group, they went to them.


We have a limited number of conservatives in our group already. We plan on challenging the YAF chapter to a debate at some point and see if we can ferret out some closet libertarians.

I'm personally left wing(so I guess I can't answer your campus libertarian group question from a first hand perspective) but I think it's pretty easy. Just make your stance on gay rights and abortion clear and the fake libertarians/republicans will steer clear of you guys.


Gay rights are really cut and dry, but you know as well as I do that abortion isn’t as simple. I think we would agree about a lot of things if we sat and talked, but not all libertarians see it the way we do.

Also I should point out that we aren’t trying to alienate conservatives or republicans. We want to bring in people of many different political inclinations to discuss libertarianism in a practical sense.

The best way to alienate yourself from liberals is to acknowledge conservative opinions as legitimate. Suggesting that the government wasn't established to support its people will probably make them angry too.

Thanks for answering. How are you defining conservative opinions?

The rest makes sense. I’m more of the opinion that government in general is established for nefarious reasons, but there are conscientious actors that try to work within the system that should be recognized also.
