Arnold Kling thinks the best way to autonomy and self rule is to have other people do it for you...

...and you just go buy a play station a nice SUV and turn off your brain.

I doubt that libertarianism will be advanced by any campaign for national office. I suspect that the best way to advance libertarianism is not to compete for government office but to compete against government. Earn a living to support your family. Contribute to institutions, such as private schools, that compete with important government institutions. Vote against incumbents, but otherwise stay aloof from political campaigns.

If you ever wanted an explanation of "how we got here" this is a good one-- "Plug yurrr ears maannn--let the 1% do their thing!"
