Libertarianism: The Cult
Yes, thatís right, I said a cult. People actually think that someone like me, someone who supported Ron Paul, has drank the kool-aid, that maybe thereís even a place for me in Waco, TX. Well, I resent that. And honestly? Itís not just because I donít like their views on government and society. Itís because I find it hilarious they canít see the irony and hypocrisy in calling libertarianism a cult.
Iím sure most of you remember being in grade school. Do you remember standing up first thing in the morning with your classmates, hand over your innocent little hearts, reciting the pledge of allegiance? You do? Excellent! Ok, nowÖHOW IS THAT NOT A FUCKING CULT? Kids who still believe in Santa Claus naively dedicate their loyalty to something they canítóin any possible wayóunderstand. Itís offensive. Itís barely different than the brainwashing the Nazis did to their children.
I could go on with this. I mean, donít even get me started with the undying support for the military. I find it sickening. If youíre one of those people who think libertarians are cult members, take a good hard look in the mirror. If you canít see the hypocrisy, then the problem is worse than I thought. That is all.
