Found on Gab—the last sentence “spoke” to me and I just felt a need to share it.
@SergeiDimitrovichIvanov - as a former small-”L” libertarian, the problem with Libertarianism is that is presumes the whole rest of the world are white anglo-saxon protestants from upper-middle-class neighborhoods with similar backgrounds, morals and upbringings, with similar financial and natural resources, similar educations on the exact same subjects, and all have IQ’s over 132 ...
along with Pollyanaish notions that evil doesn’t exist.
Which is why we’re getting destroyed at the moment by the reality of being invaded by low-IQ, morally corrupt losers from the third world.
BOOM! Truth BOMB!
Pollyanna thinking is precisely what precedes the Libertarian approach to society and politics. I never heard it put so well.
Have to Wonder how the Founders would have responded to that kind of self absorption? I think they didnt see much of it, probably.
Libertarianism is worse than that.
It is no holds barred ultra hedonism, total isolationism, complete open borders (”free flow of goods and people”) without any restraint, and supposedly low taxes.
Libertarian platform is all porn anyway, all abortion until due date, all prostituion legalized, ALL drugs legalized, for starters. i haven’t seen their official website lately but I did see that they tried to pretty up their platform so as not to disgust people, but those are their positions.
